Marco Belinelli (finger) will not suit up for Tuesday's regular-season finale against the Hawks.
There's just no reason for Belinelli to play hurt with Charlotte out of the playoff hunt. Jeremy Lamb will likely pick up most of his minutes tonight, and he might be worth streaming in deep leagues for those seeking some points with a trickle of triples and steals. Apr 11 - 6:13 PM

Marco Belinelli (finger) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Belinelli might not play again this season with Charlotte officially out of the playoff hunt. Jeremy Lamb should pick up most of Belinelli's minutes, and he's someone to consider as a potential 3-point streamer.
Apr 10 - 6:52 PM

Marco Belinelli (left index finger) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Bucks.

The Hornets have been eliminated from the postseason, so they may hold Belinelli out again so they can get an extended look at Jeremy Lamb. In addition to Lamb, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist would also get a slight bump if Belinelli can't go.
Apr 10 - 11:29 AM

Marco Belinelli (left index finger) will not play against the Celtics on Saturday.

He suffered the injury on Wednesday and was not able to return. Coach Steve Clifford said Jeremy Lamb and Treveon Graham should get his minutes, and clearly Lamb benefits the most as the top bench scorer now. Plus, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist also gets a bump because Belinelli is used frequently with the first unit.
Apr 8 - 4:24 PM

Marco Belinelli (left index finger) will not return to Wednesday's game against the Heat.

He suffered the injury in the first half and gets ruled out about 45 minutes after the injury. With Belinelli out, Jeremy Lamb should be picking up most of the slack and could be worth a look in deep leagues. Belinelli finished with just one rebound and one assist in eight minutes.
Apr 5 - 8:40 PM

Marco Belinelli suffered a left index finger strain and is questionable to return on Wednesday.

He went to the locker room and remained back there until halftime. If Belinelli can't return, it'll be Jeremy Lamb getting a bump in minutes along with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Apr 5 - 8:06 PM

Marco Belinelli lit up the Raptors on Wednesday for 21 points, making 7-of-11 FGs and 5-of-6 FTs with five assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and one block.

The veteran sharp-shooter had just one turnover in 27 minutes, and his efforts helped the Hornets escape with an essential road win in Toronto, keeping their slim playoff hopes alive. Frank Kaminsky added 13 points, three 3-pointers, four boards and two assists tonight, and those are the only two Hornets reserves worth considering in most fantasy leagues.
Mar 30 - 12:00 AM

Marco Belinelli (face laceration) will be available for Wednesday against the Raptors.

He received seven stitches for the cut on his face and it sounds like he won't be limited. Belinelli's status means Jeremy Lamb likely won't be playing much while this also lowers the floor slightly for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Mar 29 - 6:11 PM

Marco Belinelli matched his season-high with 22 points, three rebounds, two assists and three triples in 32 minutes vs. the Cavaliers on Friday.

He has the hot hand right now and coach Steve Clifford is riding him. He scored 20 points in 21 minutes in his previous outing, but picked up a big chunk of minutes tonight with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist in foul trouble. Belinelli hit 7-of-12 shots and made all five of his free throws, but with a playoff spot looking out of reach, the Hornets may be tempted to give Jeremy Lamb more burn at the expense of Belinelli. If he has another good game on Sunday vs. the Suns, give him a look since the Hornets play four times next week.
Mar 24 - 10:42 PM

Marco Belinelli scored 20 points in just 21 minutes during Wednesday's road win, hitting 5-of-9 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs with three 3-pointers, three rebounds, one assist and one steal.

Belinelli came in ice cold from the field but he scored 16 points in the first half alone, helping to keep the Hornets close despite his teammates' struggles. The veteran rarely does much beyond scoring and hitting a handful of 3-pointers, and there should be better specialists available in most leagues.
Mar 22 - 9:42 PM

Marco Belinelli got hot against the Magic on Friday with 18 points, three assists and one turnover in 22 minutes.

The Hornets used more small-ball lineups than perhaps any other night this season, which allowed Belinelli to get some extra minutes on the wing. He only scored two points in the fourth quarter, so Bello's performance is part of the reason why the Hornets won this game so easily. He could be a decent option on Saturday, assuming the Hornets are still short on bigs.
Mar 10 - 9:56 PM

Marco Belinelli hit 4-of-9 shots, 1-of-3 3-pointers and 8-of-9 free throws on his way to 17 points, three rebounds and a block in 26 minutes off the Charlotte bench on Monday.

Bello has quietly scored 17, 13 and 16 points in each of his last three games, but hasn't had an assist or steal in his last two games. He has hit four 3-pointers, and if you're looking for some points and threes, he's a decent low-end fantasy option right now. He's played at least 24 minutes in five straight games.
Feb 7 - 9:56 PM

Marco Belinelli scored 16 points with seven assists, two rebounds and one steal on Wednesday, making 6-of-11 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs in 30 bench minutes.

The Hornets' second unit was actually quite good tonight, but the starters were decimated in an eventual 126-111 loss. Belinelli's fantasy fortunes haven't changed much this season -- he remains a cheap source of points and 3s with some steals, better suited to deeper leagues.
Feb 2 - 1:23 AM

Marco Belinelli came off the bench and hit 5-of-12 shots, two 3-pointers and 6-of-7 free throws for 18 points, three rebounds,, two assists and a steal in 29 minutes on Monday.

The 18 points were the most he's scored since Dec. 17 and he's now scored in double figures in three of his last four games. He's far from a must-own player, but if you need some points and threes, he's worth a look right now, as long as he can stay hot. The fact that Nicolas Batum had one of his worst games of the season helped Belinelli see 29 minutes, which is the most he's played in the month of January.
Jan 23 - 9:37 PM

Marco Belinelli made 5-of-8 shots on Wednesday with one 3-pointer, finishing with 13 points, five boards, three assists and one steal.

Belinelli came in shooting an abysmal 28.3 percent in January. He missed five games in late December and early January, and coach Steve Clifford suggested that he was still struggling because he's "such a rhythm player." He finally gained some traction tonight, but isn't really worth owning unless you need 3-pointers in a deep league.
