Kemba Walker scored 27 points against the Suns on Wednesday with two rebounds, seven assists, one steal, four 3-pointers and no turnovers in 38 minutes.
It's his third game over his last five with seven assists, averaging 21.6 points, 3.4 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.2 triples in that span. Walker made just 37.0 percent from the field over his previous 10 games, so he really has to work on that in order to get going. There is still a buy-low window because chances are he won't be below 40 percent by season's end. Dec 18 - 12:23 AM

Kemba Walker scored 24 points on 11-of-20 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in Monday's loss to the Cavs.

Walker has been a late early-round value over the last two weeks and Lance Stephenson being traded would probably help his cause. With top 70-75 value on the season there may some folks that undervalue an asset pointing in the right direction.
Dec 16 - 12:06 AM

Kemba Walker scored just 11 points in a loss to Brooklyn on Saturday, adding four assists, one rebound and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

He shot just 3-of-11 from the field as his disappointing season continued to get worse. He did have a nice game on Friday in which he scored 28 points, but his owners have to be growing impatient. It may not be a bad idea to float some buy-low offers out there, as there is no way he can continue to be this bad moving forward.
Dec 13 - 10:56 PM

Kemba Walker scored a season-high 28 points against the Grizzlies on Friday with four rebounds, seven assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 48 minutes.

It was just his third 20-point game of the season and he also had a season high in treys tonight. Walker was in a brutal slump before tonight and didn't shoot above 40 percent in any of his previous 12 games, so he needed this one. Hopefully he can keep it going against the Nets on Saturday.
Dec 13 - 1:18 AM

Kemba Walker had a rough outing against the Hawks on Saturday, finishing with just four points on 2-of-9 shooting to go along with six assists, two rebounds, one block and one steal in 25 minutes.

After a fantastic game against the Warriors on Friday in which he double-doubled, he looked sluggish Saturday and never got it going. Walker has been disappointing this season but owners will just have to remain patient until he turns it around. He will have a chance to redeem himself on Wednesday vs. the Bulls.
Nov 29 - 10:55 PM

Kemba Walker handed out a season-high 13 assists against the Warriors on Friday with 13 points, four rebounds, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He was only 4-of-16 from the field and is really struggling with his shot. Over his last five games, he's shot just just 33.8 percent from the field with averages of 14.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 8.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 triples. He'll have a chance to turn it around against the Hawks on Saturday.
Nov 28 - 10:42 PM

Kemba Walker (thigh, face) is starting against the Warriors.

There was never really a doubt leading up to tonight and he should be in all fantasy lineups. Walker will need to be on his A game on defense for a Stephen Curry homecoming game.
Nov 28 - 6:19 PM

Kemba Walker (thigh, face) expected to play Friday vs. the Warriors.

Walker took a knee to the thigh, and an elbow to the face during his last outing, but it didn't cause him to miss any time. Charlotte beat reporter Rick Bonnell is expecting him to play, and he tends to be very accurate on these things. It's safe to assume that Walker will give it a go, so go ahead and get him in your active lineups.
Nov 28 - 1:10 PM

Kemba Walker shook off a hard collision to finish Wednesday's home loss with 15 points (6-of-19 FGs), one 3-pointer, four rebounds, nine assists and one block.

He took a knee to the thigh and was also elbowed in the face, but the Hornets' training staff quickly cleared him to return. We'll keep an eye out for any lingering problems but fantasy owners should expect to have Walker available vs. Stephen Curry and the Warriors on Friday.
Nov 26 - 9:34 PM

Kemba Walker went down on Wednesday after bruising his thigh and being elbowed in the face, but he is available to return.

Walker was down for a while and looked a bit 'woozy' as he made his way to the Hornets' bench, but it sounds like he avoided any serious injuries. With Gary Neal (shoulder) already unavailable, Walker's absence would have left Charlotte heavily reliant upon Brian Roberts.
Nov 26 - 8:30 PM

Kemba Walker flirted with a triple-double in Friday's home loss to the Magic, scoring 15 points on 7-of-19 shooting with a career-high 12 rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer.

It may seem like Walker's biggest issue is his field goal shooting but it's actually his free throw shooting. The career 80 percent shooter is hitting just 70 percent and it has submarined his value. With no season shooting worse than 79 percent from the stripe, he's all-but a lock to get it figured out.
Nov 21 - 10:43 PM

Kemba Walker scored just 11 points on 3-of-8 from the field against the Mavericks on Monday with three rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

Since dealing with a back issue, Walker has really struggled in his last two games. He only scored eight points against the Warriors on Saturday, but it's unknown if it's related to the injury. Regardless, Walker might be a buy-low option as long as you're aware he's not a lock to be a top-50 guy.
Nov 17 - 10:31 PM

Kemba Walker (back) was a major disappointment for owners on Saturday after he finished with just eight points, five assists, three boards and one steal in 28 minutes.

He was questionable leading up to the game, and he probably would have been better suited to rest based on this performance. Regardless, Walker will have a full day to recover before the Hornets take on Dallas Monday, but owners should consider him questionable for that tilt and should check back for an update prior to tip-off.
Nov 16 - 1:34 AM

Kemba Walker (back) appears set to play on Saturday vs. the Warriors.

After being declared questionable prior to the game, it looks like his back is healthy enough for him to start so owners can deploy him as usual.
Nov 15 - 9:26 PM

Kemba Walker (back) is questionable to face the Warriors on Saturday.

He had to get some extra stretching in on Friday and even went to the locker room. Walker was able to return to the game and we'd expect him ton play. If he's out, Brian Roberts would step up.
