Jordan Hamilton had eight points and eight rebounds in 23 minutes off the Pelicans bench on Tuesday.

He's been getting some minutes and will be with the Pelicans for the remainder of the season, but unless he's starting for the Pelicans, he probably shouldn't be starting for your fantasy team.

Jordan Hamilton will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the 76ers.

The Pelicans will roll with a starting backcourt of Tim Frazier and Toney Douglas. This is the 39th different lineup for the Pelicans this season, so this obviously may not be a permanent move. Hamilton is still worth owning in standard leagues for now and should get plenty of minutes off the bench.

The Pelicans signed Jordan Hamilton for the rest of the season.

He's been effective in the starting lineup with a double-double on Sunday. Hamilton should be able to log minutes in the 28-32 range going forward. He's worth owning in standard leagues.

Jordan Hamilton double-doubled against the Nets on Sunday with 13 points, 11 rebounds, three assists, and two turnovers.

His 6'7 height has helped him tremendously. Hamilton is playing three positions for the depleted Pelicans and that should continue. Hamilton should be able to hold value in standard leagues the rest of the way.

The Pelicans are expected to sign Jordan Hamilton for the rest of the season.

Hamilton has played well on 10-day contracts and the Pelicans are desperate for healthy bodies, so this comes as no surprise. He's worth a look for scoring in deeper leagues, but most owners should watch him from afar.
Sun, Apr 3, 2016 03:54:00 PM

Jordan Hamilton scored 14 points with seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes against the Nuggets on Thursday.

He's been great in his last two games with a 14-point effort on Wednesday. Hamilton is a capable isolation scorer and that's part of the reason why he's caught on so quickly. Hamilton looks like he's locked in to minutes in the low 30s going forward and he should get at least a second 10-day deal. If you need a scorer who adds other stats, give Hamilton a look in 16-team leagues.

Jordan Hamilton slid into the Pelicans' starting five on Wednesday and had 14 points, five boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

New Orleans is simply desperate for healthy bodies and Hamilton is a more natural fit at SG than Luke Babbitt, who moved to the bench tonight. Hamilton shot 6-of-15 from the field in 31 minutes of action and should have a green light offensively with only nine healthy players available. With Alonzo Gee (quad) and Jrue Holiday (eye) joining the injury report, Hamilton could even creep into the 12-team picture down the stretch.

Jordan Hamilton will get a start against the Spurs on Wednesday.

It's not a surprise and he could actually get minutes in the upper 20s. He'll join Toney Douglas, Dante Cunningham, Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca in the first unit.

Jordan Hamilton scored five points with four rebounds, two assists, two steals, one block and one 3-pointer in 19 minutes against the Knicks on Monday.

Well, he might be playing now. The Pelicans may have lost Alonzo Gee (quad) and Jrue Holiday (eye), so there could be minutes available. Gee did play 41 minutes in each of his previous two games, so most of those figure to go to Hamilton. If you have dead weight in a deep league, give him a look.

Jordan Hamilton scored 11 points in his debut for the Pelicans on Saturday, adding four boards and three assists in 24 minutes.

It was a solid debut for Hamilton and he could get big minutes down the stretch because the Pelicans desperately need some offense and they need healthy bodies as well. He was 5-of-10 from the field and didn't turn the ball over, so hopefully his role will increase on Monday vs. the Knicks. Hamilton is on the radar in deeper leagues.
Sat, Mar 26, 2016 10:16:00 PM

The Pelicans have signed Jordan Hamilton to a 10-day contract.

He averaged 14.9 points on 49.7 percent shooting from the field with 9.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists in 29.2 minutes per game in the D-League. Hamilton does have NBA experience and is a decent scorer, but he's only on the radar in very deep leagues for now.
Fri, Mar 25, 2016 12:17:00 PM

The Pelicans are planning to sign Jordan Hamilton to a 10-day deal.

They need to find someone to score, especially if Jrue Holiday (toe) is out. Hamilton averaged 15.1 points per game in the D-League this season on 50 percent from the field. He's shown some flashes at times with the Nuggets and maybe the 25-year-old wing has grown. Obviously you would need to be in a very deep league to look at Hamilton as a pickup.
Thu, Mar 24, 2016 08:16:00 PM

Jordan Hamilton will reportedly return to the D-League after the All-Star break.

He was playing overseas, but it sounds like he's going to try to play his way back into the NBA via the D-League. Hamilton has played a total of 140 NBA games over the course of his four-year career, but he’s never been a worthwhile asset in fantasy hoops.
Thu, Feb 11, 2016 05:28:00 PM

Jordan Hamilton has officially signed with Krasny Oktyabr in Russia.

Hamilton has spent time with the Nuggets, Rockets and Clippers during his brief NBA career, but he is going to need to develop his game overseas for the time being. Hamilton boasts career averages of 5.5 points, 2.6 boards and 0.9 3-pointers on 40.5 percent shooting from the field, so he wouldn't have been an option in fantasy leagues if he stayed in the NBA.
