He was active on Sunday against the Hawks and he did not play. Daniels is not in the rotation right now.
Nov 2 - 3:13 PM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) will be active for the first time this season against the Hawks on Sunday.

Daniels is currently the third-string shooting guard and won't see many minutes if he does enter the game. Leave the 3-point specialist on the waiver wire.
Nov 1 - 12:26 PM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's rematch vs. the Hawks.

He was also questionable on Friday but never left the bench, and even if he plays he'll fill a minute role as Charlotte's third-string SG.
Oct 31 - 5:52 PM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) is questionable for Friday's game vs. the Hawks.

Daniels isn't expected to be in the rotation any ways, so this news has no fantasy implications. Leave him on the wire.

Oct 28 - 6:17 PM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) did not practice on Saturday.

He was able to play through the ailment this week, so the Hornets are probably just giving him the day off. Daniels had some bright moments in the preseason and we know what he can do from long range, but his role will be too sporadic to rely upon this season.
Oct 24 - 1:03 PM

Troy Daniels scored a preseason-high 15 points in 17 minutes vs. the Pistons on Wednesday, hitting two 3-pointers with one rebound and zero assists, steals or blocks.

Charlotte now has a perfect 7-0 record this preseason. Roberts made 5-of-10 FGs and 3-of-3 FTs to secure his first double-digit performance of the preseason. He may be used situationally to spread the court this season, a role that doesn't lend itself to fantasy value.
Oct 21 - 10:19 PM

Troy Daniels (left hamstring tightness) is probable for Monday's preseason game against Chicago.

Daniels has been dealing with the hamstring issue for right around three weeks, but he's finally ready to put it behind him and get back on the floor. He's really only a fantasy consideration in deep formats for owners desperate for 3-point help.
Oct 19 - 8:40 AM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) will not play vs. the Knicks on Saturday.

The Hornets are just being cautious and Daniels is expected to suit up on Monday. Daniels was a pleasant surprise in the summer league and Charlotte needs some 3-point shooting, but he is only on the fantasy radar in very deep leagues.
Oct 17 - 11:18 AM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) did not play on Sunday morning.

He is missing out on playing time and has been out all month. Daniels could be one of the Hornets' best shooters, but isn't close to being on the radar in most leagues.
Oct 11 - 3:44 AM

Troy Daniels (left hamstring) did not practice on Friday.

He's been out for all of camp and also dealt with a shoulder injury at Summer League. The Hornets could really use some shooting after they ranked dead last in 3-point percentage last year, but Daniels still isn't close to being on the fantasy radar
Oct 2 - 2:12 PM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) was still out of Hornets practice on Monday.

Despite the injury still being an issue, it's not something that's expected to linger for much longer. We'll see a number of minor injuries like this pop up in the coming days as guys get acclimated to being back at work.
