Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) returned from a five-game absence with four rebounds, one assist and one steal vs. the Lakers on Sunday.
He missed his only shot attempt and racked up three fouls during his brief time on the court, showing obvious rust after his injury-induced absence. He may earn more playing time on Tuesday if Amir Johnson (toe) can't suit up, but his fantasy game is too limited to bother with him in standard leagues. Dec 1 - 1:02 AM

Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) is set to make his return to the court for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

While it is good to see him back, he is not a big part of the rotation and can be ignored in almost all leagues. Hansbrough will need an injury to occur in Toronto's frontcourt before he will be relevant again.
Nov 30 - 8:45 PM

Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play on Friday night.

He is starting to do some work in practice, so Hansbrough is getting close to have almost no fantasy value.
Nov 28 - 6:00 PM

Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) went through a full practice on Thursday, so there's a possibility he'll be able to suit up for Friday's game vs. Dallas.

Hansbrough is averaging 3.4 points and 3.8 rebounds on the season, and has gone scoreless in his past four outings, so whether he plays or not should be of no concern to owners in standard leagues.
Nov 27 - 4:27 PM

Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play in Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

His absence should affect many fantasy lineups, though it means more playing time for guys like Patrick Patterson, Amir Johnson and Chuck Hayes. Hansbrough remains day-to-day.

Tyler Hansbrough will be a game-time decision on Wednesday due to his shoulder injury.

The Raptors play the Hawks tonight, but Hansbrough doesn't have much fantasy appeal whether he's in uniform or not.
Nov 26 - 12:10 PM

Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play against the Suns on Monday.

He doesn't do much while he's on the court and has very little fantasy value. Hansbrough is not worth owning in just about any league.
Nov 24 - 5:52 PM

Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play on Saturday against the Cavs.

He is a hustle player, but he doesn't get the hustle stats. Hansbrough has very little fantasy value in almost any league.
Nov 22 - 6:08 PM

Tyler Hansbrough (shoulder) will not play Friday vs. the Bucks.

Hansbrough is averaging a meager 3.4 points and 3.8 rebounds over 17.5 minutes of action this season, so he's not worth owning in most leagues. His absence will result in more minutes for Amir Johnson and Patrick Patterson, but Amir is the guy to own here. Bruno Caboclo and Lucas Nogueira will also be joining the active roster tonight, but neither Caboclo nor Nogueira will see major minutes, if any.

Tyler Hansbrough went to the locker room in the second half on Thursday after a hard fall due to a back contusion and he is available to return.

He may have tweaked his back after being up-ended by Joakim Noah. Hansbrough's carelessness on the court has cost him a handful of games, but it's also a big reason why he's in the NBA. He has no fantasy value, though.
Nov 13 - 10:06 PM

Tyler Hansbrough started at center for the Raptors on Wednesday but hit just 1-of-2 shots for four points, five rebounds and a block.

He started in place of Jonas Valanciunas, who was out with a hand injury, but didn't answer the call. Continue to ignore him.
Nov 5 - 10:12 PM

Tyler Hansbrough will start against the Celtics on Wednesday.

Jonas Valanciunas (hand) isn't expected to be out long and Hansbrough is one of the least efficient big men in the NBA, so he can be left on the wire on this 12-game night.
Nov 5 - 6:44 PM

Tyler Hansbrough drew praise from coach Dwane Casey following Wednesday's win over the Hawks.

"Tyler brought the energy, the rebounding, the mixing it up," Casey said. "He brought a physical presence in the paint, which we needed. That’s what he brings. Tyler’s doing a much better job this season of really spacing, screening and getting to his positions." Hansbrough is not on the fantasy radar
Oct 30 - 4:12 PM

Tyler Hansbrough made a 3-pointer on Sunday against the Kings, finishing with 11 points and three rebounds on 3-of-4 from the field.

He said he worked on his corner treys and apparently he wasn't joking. Hansbrough was still one of the worst jump shooters in the NBA last season, so he's not going to be the power forward version of Steph Curry or anything. He can be ignored in almost all leagues.
Oct 6 - 9:45 AM

Tyler Hansbrough has been working on his 3-pointers this summer, according to Patrick Patterson.

He only shot 20.8 percent on his jumpers last season, so he probably should focus on something else. Hansbrough's production doesn't translate very well to fantasy and he can be ignored in almost all leagues.
