Jeff Taylor started Sunday's game with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) unavailable, finishing with six points, one 3-pointer, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 22 minutes.

MKG has already been ruled out for Tuesday's game but he could return for the Hornets' first game after the All-Star break, and Taylor's performance on Sunday should scare away any owners looking for a cheap waiver-wire pickup.
Feb 8 - 10:41 PM

Jeff Taylor will slide into the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pacers with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) unavailable.

Taylor is averaging just 3.8 points and not much else on the season, and it'll be interesting to see how he fares with the starting unit. We'll let you know how he does after the game, but with career averages of 6.4 points on 41.3 percent shooting, it's unlikely he'll be able to emerge as an asset in standard leagues. Leave him on the wire for now.
Feb 8 - 4:43 PM

Jeff Taylor scored a season-high nine points against the Wolves on Monday with two rebounds and two 3-pointers in seven minutes.

He came on in garbage time for his first minutes since in his last three games. Taylor won't have much fantasy value this season.
Jan 19 - 4:52 PM

Jeff Taylor was recalled from the NBA D-League on Friday.

Jeff Taylor made his season debut on Saturday, but failed to register a stat in three minutes.

To be fair, it is hard to impress in just three minutes, but it is clear that Taylor won't be in the rotation soon. Leave him on the waiver wire.

Jeff Taylor is active to face the 76ers on Friday.

It will be his first game on the active list since being suspended for 24 games. His suspension ended on Wednesday and he was inactive. Taylor might get some run with Lance Stephenson (hip) out. He can be left on the wire in most leagues.

Jeff Taylor's 24-game suspension for his involvement in a domestic violence case ended on Monday, but the Hornets don't plan on activating him immediately.

Head coach Steve Clifford said he doesn't want to use one of the 13 active roster spots on Taylor until it is clear that he'll play ahead of one of the other wings in the rotation, so it could be a while until we see Taylor as the Hornets are deep on the wing. Taylor can safely be left on waiver wires as it's unlikely he'll be a rotation player for the Hornets this season.

Despite the NBPA's willingness, Jeff Taylor will reportedly not appeal his 24-game suspension for his involvement in a domestic violence case.

There would probably be more blowback than it's worth if he went through with the appeal, so Taylor will go ahead and just take the suspension. He doesn't figure to be a rotation player for the Hornets this season, and can be safely left on the wire in all formats.

The NBPA is set to file an appeal on Jeff Taylor's 24-game suspension for his involvement in a domestic violence case.

The NBPA is stating that Taylor's suspension is "excessive, without precedent and a violation of the CBA." However, the decision to actually file the appeal will be Taylor's. Stay tuned.

Jeff Taylor has been suspended 24 games without pay for his involvement in a domestic violence case.

"This suspension is necessary to protect the interests of the NBA and the public's confidence in it,"commissioner Adam Silver said. The Hornets are not playing Taylor and the games missed will count towards the suspension.
