Charlotte Hornets Roster

Charlotte Hornets forward Nicolas Batum is expected to pick up his $27 million player option for next season. It is far more than he'd get in free agency, so there's no reason for him not to accept the deal. It's the final year of his contract, so the Hornets are likely going to attempt to move Batum. Sadly, it's going to be difficult to find a trade partner when he's owed that much money. The Hornets are likely going to be stuck with Batum for at least one more season.
Charlotte Hornets forward Caleb Martin finished with 19 points, seven rebounds, three assists, and four steals in 35 minutes during the 109-98 win over the Heat on Wednesday. The Nevada product built on a 23-point performance from the last game and racked up his two highest point totals of the season in these past two games. The 24-year-old only averages 5.4 points per game, but he just may be a fantasy-worthy pickup if and when the season resumes.
Charlotte Hornets point guard Devonte' Graham compiled 30 points, one rebound, six assists, and one steal in 37 minutes during the 109-98 win over the Heat on Wednesday. The 25-year-old also went 8-for-11 from downtown. The Kansas product has now scored at least 23 points in the last four games, and is tied with Terry Rozier as the leading scorer on this team. He's a daily fantasy start, but the suspension of the season leaves huge question marks.
Charlotte Hornets point/shooting guard Terry Rozier (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesdays contest against the Miami Heat. Dealing with a cold, Roziers absence will mark just his second of the season. Devonte' Graham should be in line to see a larger offensive workload without Rozier in the mix, while Cody Martin will slot into the starting five as a low-priced DFS option. Coming off a career-high 40-point scoring eruption Monday, Roziers next chance at getting back on the floor comes Friday against the Cavaliers.
Charlotte Hornets guard Terry Rozier (illness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat. Rozier scored a career-high 40 points on Tuesday, but it appears he's a bit under the weather here. There's a good chance that Rozier suits up for this game, but fantasy owners should check back closer to tip-off for more information. Devonte' Graham and Cody Martin would likely see their usage skyrocket if Rozier is unable to play.
