Brian Roberts (hand) is probable for Sunday against the Lakers.

Kemba Walker did not play in the final 17 minutes on Friday, but he's not on the injury report. Even if Roberts is good to go, he's not the strongest option.
Jan 30 - 6:50 PM

Brian Roberts made 6-of-15 from the field for a season-high 17 points against the Blazers on Friday with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

Something may have been up with Kemba Walker with his limited playing time. Roberts can be left on the wire in most leagues.
Jan 30 - 1:48 AM

Brian Roberts was the Hornets' second-leading scorer on Wednesday, coming off the bench for 13 points on 3-of-4 FGs and 5-of-5 FTs, with two 3-pointers in just 12 minutes on the court.

The Hornets have lost nine straight games in Salt Lake City and they were blown out of the water tonight -- Roberts did all of his damage in the fourth quarter with the score out of hand and Jeremy Lin (ankle) unavailable. Needless to say, B-Rob belongs on the wire.
Jan 28 - 12:23 AM

Brian Roberts played 24 minutes against the Magic on Friday with 11 points, two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer.

He played in overtime for this game and didn't hurt his team here. Roberts has basically logged all of the backup point guard minutes and tonight he finally picked up a huge chunk of combo guard time He's still nowhere near worthy of a grab in most leagues.
Jan 22 - 10:27 PM

Hornets head coach Steve Clifford said that because the Raptors go small a lot with Cory Joseph and Kyle Lowry, Brian Roberts or Troy Daniels could get some extended run for the Hornets on Thursday.

The absence of Nicolas Batum (illness) for tonight's game will open up some playing time for the guys on the wings in Charlotte, however, it's unlikely that Roberts or Daniels earn enough minutes to matter in most leagues with Jeremy Lin, Jeremy Lamb and Kemba Walker all healthy.

Brian Roberts (strained left knee) logged 18 minutes on Wednesday, grabbing two boards and handing out two assists while scoring six points.

The fourth-year PG overcame a minor left knee strain to play tonight, and he's now averaged a solid 18.2 minutes in six preseason games. As long as Kemba Walker and Jeremy Lin are healthy, however, Roberts belongs on the waiver wire.

Updating a previous item, Brian Roberts (left knee strain) is available to play on Monday.

And this concludes your Brian Roberts update to begin your week.

Brian Roberts (left knee strain) is questionable for Monday's preseason game against the Bulls.

Roberts was missing from Sunday's practice after what was described as soreness, but it's now being labeled a strain. As a result, we wouldn't be surprised if Roberts sits in Charlotte's final preseason contest, but it won't impact his fantasy stock either way as he's waiver wire fodder in all formats.

Brian Roberts missed practice on Sunday due to knee soreness.

It sounds very minor and Robert should be ready to roll for the season opener. He is going to lose a lot of minutes with Jeremy Lin in town, so he won't be a fantasy option in almost all leagues.

Brian Roberts doesn't know what type of role he will have with the Hornets next season, but he is eager to improve over the summer.

"Things were really up-and-down the whole year," Roberts said in regards to his 2014-15 campaign. "I didn’t really find a smooth spot where I could consistently play at the high level I know I can play at. Overall, it was a learning experience and I’m definitely motivated this summer to get after it." Roberts would likely be the backup point guard to Kemba Walker again if Mo Williams leaves in free agency, but Williams' plans aren't clear just yet. Regardless, Roberts' value will likely be limited to deeper leagues as long as Kemba Walker can stay healthy.

Brian Roberts got hot on Monday night against the Rockets with 23 points, five rebounds, three assists and five 3-pointers in 28 minutes.

He made just 38.7 percent from the field in his previous April games, averaging just 7.4 points, 2.0 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 treys. Roberts should get minutes on Wednesday, but he's not a reliable fantasy option.
Mon, Apr 13, 2015 11:38:00 PM

Brian Roberts was in the rotation on Wednesday with 10 points, one rebound, three assists and two 3-pointers.

Mo Williams shifted to shooting guard for the majority of his minutes because of the Lance Stephenson (toe) injury. Of course, fantasy owners in almost all leagues can keep Roberts on the wire because he'll likely only be looking at around 14 minutes most nights.
Wed, Apr 8, 2015 09:48:00 PM

Brian Roberts played 13 minutes off the bench on Saturday with four points, one assist and two blocks.

It's the first time of his career with two blocks in a game! Besides that, there is certainly nothing to be excited about here and the Hornets clearly lost confidence in Roberts. Cut him basically everywhere.

Brian Roberts will come off the bench against the Thunder.

His struggles this season explain why the Hornets went after Mo Williams in the trade market. He was already off the radar in standard leagues even before this news and his outlook is even worse now. Although, he'll play next to Mo for a few minutes.
