Tyler Hansbrough, who scored a season-high 18 points on Sunday, finished Tuesday's game with only four points and two boards in eight minutes off the bench.
There was never any expectation that he'd follow up Sunday's game with another efficient gem, and he's a non-factor in fantasy leagues while averaging 12-15 minutes with the second unit. Mar 24 - 10:39 PM

Tyler Hansbrough blew past his previous season-high with 18 points in 18 minutes on Sunday, making 7-of-8 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with five rebounds.

The Raptors' hard-nosed forward obviously isn't a reliable scorer, and he's been off the fantasy radar all season with Amir Johnson, Patrick Patterson and Jonas Valanciunas dominating the frontcourt rotation. File this performance under 'random' and move along.

Tyler Hansbrough will slide into the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Heat with Jonas Valanciunas (personal) unavailable.

In Hansbrough's previous start this season, he only managed to put up four points, five rebounds, and a block, so he's not a great option tonight despite the starters tag. Patrick Patterson and Amir Johnson will likely log extended minutes tonight, and Patterson figures to be the primary beneficiary with Jonas at home tending to the newest addition to his family, Jonas Jr.

Tyler Hansbrough and Festus Ezeli were ejected for an alteration on Friday.

Hansbrough's nickname isn't Mild-Mannered T. He can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 27 - 9:26 PM

Tyler Hansbrough was terrific off the bench on Sunday, finishing with 10 points, six boards and one block in 20 minutes.

He gave the Raptors a huge lift off the bench with Jonas Valanciunas struggling, and ended up playing down the stretch in a thrilling win over the Nuggets. However, Hansbrough has a very limited role this season and this was his first solid game in a while, so owners should consider this a fluke and look elsewhere for production.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 08:45:00 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.
Fri, Nov 28, 2014 06:00:00 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.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 04:27:00 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.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 06:19:00 PM

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.
Wed, Nov 26, 2014 12:10:00 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.
Mon, Nov 24, 2014 05:52:00 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.
Sat, Nov 22, 2014 06:08:00 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.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 06:03:00 PM

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.
