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.
Mar 10 - 9:48 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.
Feb 5 - 1:34 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.
Jan 23 - 5:53 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.

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.
Mon, Oct 17, 2016 09:15:00 AM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) sat out of Thursday's practice as a precaution.

"We’re just being ultra-careful," coach Steve Clifford said. "You come back too early [from a hamstring pull] and you could be out a month." It sounds like he could be limited for a couple more weeks, but the Hornets will make sure he's ready to go for the season opener. He's fully expected to be the third-string PG behind Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions.
Fri, Oct 14, 2016 10:15:00 AM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) made his preseason debut on Saturday, finishing with four points, a rebound and a steal in nine minutes.

His minutes were purposefully limited due to the fact he was coming off an injury, but this is a good indication of his relevance in fantasy leagues this year so long as Kemba Walker (knee surgery) is on the court.
Sat, Oct 8, 2016 06:31:00 PM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) is expected to play on Saturday vs. Boston with a minutes limit.

Roberts is just getting over a hamstring injury, so this makes sense. He'll have no fantasy value as the insurance policy at point guard so long as Kemba Walker (knee surgery) remains healthy.
Sat, Oct 8, 2016 02:23:00 PM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) is probable for Saturday's game vs. the Celtics.

Kemba Walker (knee) is healthy again, so Roberts will have no fantasy value as the third-string point guard in Charlotte.
Fri, Oct 7, 2016 01:59:00 PM

Brian Roberts (hamstring) will remain sidelined for Thursday's preseason game against the Celtics.

Roberts will open the year as the third-string point guard in Charlotte, a role that is devoid of fantasy value. Ignore him.
