Brian Roberts was quiet in a start for Kemba Walker (knee) on Monday vs. the Bucks, scoring seven points on 3-of-10 shooting with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one triple in 27 minutes.

Walker (knee) will also miss the regular-season finale on Tuesday vs. the Hawks, but there's just not enough upside here to take a flier on Roberts in most leagues. Briante Weber took over the backup PG duties and wasn't much better, scoring three points with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes.

Brian Roberts will move into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Bucks.

Roberts should be starting the rest of the way for Charlotte with Kemba Walker (knee) done for the year, and he could be someone to consider throwing out there as a punt play in daily leagues tonight, as his minutes could be in the high-30s. Per-36 minutes this season, Roberts owns averages of 13.1 points, 5.0 dimes and 1.6 triples per contest.

Brian Roberts (personal) returned on Sunday to score six points with two assists and one steal in 14 minutes.

Roberts missed Friday's game for personal reasons, but you'd be forgiven for not noticing. He's nowhere near holding reliable value while Kemba Walker is active.
Sun, Apr 2, 2017 05:33:00 PM

Brian Roberts (personal) was not at shootaround and is questionable for Friday's game vs. Denver.

Minimal fantasy impact here, as Roberts has appeared in just three of the Hornets last six games. Briante Weber will log a few additional minutes if Roberts is unable to play on Friday.

Brian Roberts scored three points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 13 minutes against the Pelicans on Saturday.

In case you were buying that 15-point Friday, here's your reality check. Roberts won't have much value while Kemba Walker is active.

Brian Roberts scored 15 points with one rebound, four assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

It was the Brian Roberts show in the first quarter with eight points in just four minutes. Plus, garbage time helps him get his minutes up. He's not a fantasy factor.
Fri, Mar 10, 2017 09:48:00 PM

Brian Roberts played 13 minutes on Saturday vs. the Jazz, scoring two points on 1-of-5 shooting.

Even with Kemba Walker battling through an illness, Roberts wasn't very involved Saturday. He's going to be the backup PG with Ramon Sessions (knee) out, but there's just no real fantasy value here. He added four assists and one board with zero turnovers.
Sun, Feb 5, 2017 01:34:00 AM

Brian Roberts (illness) will not suit up for Monday's game against the Wizards.

Roberts rarely makes appearances in the rotation, so his absence from tonight's game will have a negligible impact in fantasy hoops.
Mon, Jan 23, 2017 05:53:00 PM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) did not play vs. Philly on Wednesday.

Roberts began the season with a hamstring injury, but his inactivity this week appears to stem from not being in the rotation. We're taking him off the injury report.
Wed, Nov 2, 2016 09:58:00 PM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) is active for Friday's game against the Heat.

He is not a lock to play and the report from the team said "available" in the pre-game. Roberts isn't a fantasy option.
Fri, Oct 28, 2016 06:07:00 PM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) is questionable to play against the Heat on Friday.

He's probably not going to be in the rotation anyway. Roberts can remain in the wire in almost all leagues.
Thu, Oct 27, 2016 05:54:00 PM

Brian Roberts (left hamstring) won't play Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

Roberts suffered the hamstring injury during the preseason and will be brought along slowly. The third-string point guard has no fantasy value, and his absence will go largely unnoticed in fantasy hoops.
Wed, Oct 26, 2016 12:13:00 PM

Brian Roberts (left hamstring) won't play in the rest of the preseason.

Steve Clifford has described Roberts' absence an "ultra-careful" move by the Hornets, so we're considering him questionable for opening night. He's not a lock to be in the rotation while Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions are healthy.
Wed, Oct 19, 2016 07:19:00 PM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) will not play vs. the Bulls on Monday.

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said last week that the team is just being "ultra-careful," so he probably has a decent chance to be ready for the season opener. The third-string PG has no fantasy value.
