Cody Zeller played 32 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with eight points, eight rebounds, one assist, two steals and three blocks.
With Bismack Biyombo (knee) and Marvin Williams (head) hurt, Zeller is going to get more minutes. He isn't much of a stat-filler because he's not really involved in the offense while he's with the first unit. Unless he was already on the short list of players you were considering, his outlook shouldn't change too much with the injuries. Jan 24 - 9:56 PM

Cody Zeller hit just 1-of-8 shots for six points, but added 12 rebounds, six assists and two blocks in 32 minutes on Wednesday.

That's a really nice line if he makes a few of those shots and the minutes were there. He's yet to go on much of a run this season, but tonight's game could be a sign that it's about to happen.
Jan 21 - 10:03 PM

Cody Zeller played 18 minutes against the Wolves on Monday with two points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals.

He did pick up a few more minutes because of the Al Jefferson injury, but didn't really do much with them. Zeller doesn't block shots and his rebounding rate is below average for a big man, so he's not someone fantasy owners should be excited about.
Jan 19 - 4:59 PM

Cody Zeller scored six points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 26 minutes against the Pacers on Saturday.

He’s made some nice strides this season, especially on offense. Zeller is making 38.2 percent of all of his jump shots this season, which is up from 27.8 last year. Still, he’s been a disappointment since the Al Jefferson injury, so there's no need to pick him up if he's still out there.
Jan 17 - 9:58 PM

Cody Zeller had eight points, 10 rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes on Wednesday.

Zeller scored just two points on Saturday and his was his best game in recent memory, so don't get too excited about him just yet. He's been out with a shoulder injury, so maybe he's healthy and will start producing again, but he's got a lot to prove before we'll be ready to buy in.
Jan 14 - 10:31 PM

Cody Zeller scored just two points from the line against the Knicks on Saturday with nothing else.

He missed Thursday against the Raptors due to a shoulder strain, but the poor performance today doesn't necessarily mean he wasn't healthy. Zeller was putting up late-round value with Al Jefferson (groin) out, so he's worth a look once he gets it going. Obviously, there won't be any demand after this one, so he can be left on the wire.
Jan 10 - 3:52 PM

Cody Zeller (shoulder) and P.J. Hairston (illness) will play on Saturday vs. the Knicks.

Zeller missed just one game after suffering the injury and his owners will be eager to get him back in their lineups after his recent play. Marvin Williams will shift back to the bench with this news while Jason Maxiell's value will take a hit as well.

Cody Zeller (shoulder) is questionable to play against the Knicks on Saturday.

He missed the first game of his career on Thursday and was ruled out just before the game started. The good news is that the Hornets have the first game of the day at 1:00 at Madison Square Garden, so fantasy owners should know in the morning what his status is. If he's out, Marvin Williams will get more run while Jason Maxiell and Noah Vonleh will an uptick. Gerald Henderson and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist would also indirectly benefit.
Jan 9 - 3:53 PM

Cody Zeller (shoulder) will not play against the Raptors on Thursday night.

He is coming off a couple strong games and must have suffered in the injury on Wednesday night. Zeller was logging around 30 minutes, so that playing time will go to Marvin Williams, Jason Maxiell and Bismack Biyombo. Zeller should hold enough value in standard leagues while Al Jefferson (groin) is out this month.
Jan 8 - 7:05 PM

Cody Zeller (strained right shoulder) is being listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Raptors.

This is the first we're hearing of a shoulder injury, but if Zeller if forced to sit, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marvin Williams would be forced into heavy minutes for the Hornets. Williams isn't really capable of putting up big stat lines, so MKG would be the primary beneficiary of a Zeller absence. Stay tuned.

Cody Zeller made all eight shots from the field and all four from the line for 20 points against the Celtics on Monday, adding seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 33 minutes.

He was the much better Zeller tonight with Tyler only scoring two points. Zeller has been quiet in the past week and has been benched for the likes of Jason Maxiell on occasion. He's not a great guy to grab in standard leagues and will need to do it again. Although, there is room for him to do well with Al Jefferson (groin) likely out for a month.
Jan 5 - 10:22 PM

Cody Zeller played just 20 minutes against the Magic on Saturday with 12 points, seven boards, one assist and one steal.

He did not play well on offense, but was better on defense compared to Friday night. Zeller's minutes haven't really increased much with Jason Maxiell suddenly getting more run. If Zeller is sitting on the wire, there's little reason to add him now.
Jan 3 - 10:13 PM

Cody Zeller was effective in his 20 minutes of action against the Cavs on Friday with eight points, seven rebounds, three assists and three blocks.

He couldn't handle Kevin Love, so coach Steve Clifford cut his minutes a bit tonight. Zeller was at 32 minutes on Wednesday, so that's a more realistic expectation. He's arguably the biggest winner from the Al Jefferson (groin) injury, so give him a look if you need a big man. To be clear, he doesn't have much upside.
Jan 2 - 10:52 PM

Cody Zeller played 32 minutes against the Bucks on Monday with six points, five rebounds, one assist, three steals and two blocks.

He picked up a ton of minutes as the center in the lineup because Al Jefferson (groin) went down tonight. Zeller is still a major project as an offensive weapon and the points won't be there, but he could be a low-end add for blocks and boards.
Mon, Dec 29, 2014 10:44:00 PM

Cody Zeller made just 1-of-5 from the field for three points, two rebounds, one assist and two turnovers in 19 minutes against the Magic on Saturday.

This is his second consecutive game below 20 minutes and coach Steve Clifford seems to be coloing on the sophomore. Zeller doesn't really block shots anyway, so he's not a great player to own in most leagues.
