Troy Daniels scored 17 points off the bench against the Nets on Friday with three rebounds, one steal and five 3-pointers in 25 minutes.
He stepped right into Jeremy Lamb's (toe) role tonight with some added garbage time. Daniels has turned in a couple gems this year, but he likely won't get enough playing time in close games. Keep him in mind if the Hornets lock up their seed. Apr 8 - 9:58 PM

Troy Daniels followed up Monday's huge game with just five points, one rebound and five turnovers in 22 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

He scored a career-high 28 points on Monday, hitting eight 3-pointers (including a game-winner), but failed to connect from deep tonight and shot 2-of-7 overall. With Nicolas Batum (toe) back in action, and Jeremy Lamb (toe) day-to-day, there's simply no reason to touch Daniels in fantasy leagues.
Jan 28 - 12:22 AM

Troy Daniels hit the game-winning 3-point shot in Monday's double-overtime thriller vs. the Kings, finishing with a career-high 28 points.

The Spurs vs. Warriors was supposed to be the game of the season, but Daniels and DeMarcus Cousins (56 points) stole the spotlight. Daniels added seven boards and a career-high eight 3-pointers, shooting 10-of-15 from the field in 31 minutes. He did have a five-point dud vs. the Knicks on Saturday, but Daniels could have some short-term value since Nicolas Batum (toe) is in a walking boot and Jeremy Lamb (toe) is still out.
Jan 26 - 1:38 AM

Troy Daniels cooled off on Saturday with five points and one 3-pointer in nine minutes against the Knicks.

Well, that one 17-point game from Friday was very nice. Daniels is only worth owning in extremely deep leagues.
Jan 23 - 10:20 PM

Troy Daniels scored a season-high 17 points against the Magic on Friday with three rebounds, two assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He played in overtime and turned in his best game of the year. Daniels has temporarily leapfrogged Jeremy Lamb before, so it's not too much of a stretch to see him do it again. You would obviously have to be in a very deep league to make an add here.
Jan 22 - 10:25 PM

Troy Daniels played 17 minutes against the Thunder on Wednesday with 11 points, two rebounds and three 3-pointers.

The Hornets are running out of wings with Nicolas Batum (toe) and Jeremy Lamb (toe) out right now. Obviously Daniels is only a speculative add in very deep leagues.
Jan 21 - 12:57 AM

Troy Daniels was a DNP-CD on Saturday.

So much for that. Daniels moved into Jeremy Lamb's minutes on Wednesday, but he was glued to the bench for this game. Keep him on the wire.
Jan 9 - 6:05 PM

Troy Daniels played 23 minutes against the Suns on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 13 points, with three rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

It looked like Jeremy Lamb was in the doghouse for bad defense in this game. Daniels was out of the rotation before this game, so we'll have to see it again before saying he's even on the radar in very deep leagues.
Jan 7 - 1:35 AM

Troy Daniels didn't play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

He isn't part of Steve Clifford's rotation and it's unclear if he sat out due to a recent hamstring injury, or if he was a DNP-CD. We're taking him off the injury report.
Wed, Nov 25, 2015 09:38:00 PM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) will not play against the Kings on Monday.

He hasn't been in the rotation these days, so there aren't many fantasy implications here. Daniels can be ignored in most leagues.
Mon, Nov 23, 2015 05:29:00 PM

Troy Daniels (left hamstring) is probable for Tuesday's game against the Bulls.

Even though he's listed as probable, Daniels can be ignored in all fantasy leagues as he didn't play on Sunday.
Tue, Nov 3, 2015 11:28:00 AM

Troy Daniels (hamstring) is probable to play against the Bulls on Tuesday.

He was active on Sunday against the Hawks and he did not play. Daniels is not in the rotation right now.
Mon, Nov 2, 2015 03:13:00 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.
Sun, Nov 1, 2015 12:26:00 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.
Sat, Oct 31, 2015 05:52:00 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.
