Jaxson Hayes News
New Orleans Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes is mainly known for his defensive ability on the court. Although, on Monday the coaching staff spoke to Hayes about attempting more shots from beyond the arc. Hayes has attempted a total of 18 (making seven) 3-pointers in his first two NBA seasons. Fantasy managers could see a slight uptick in his shooting, but he is mainly there for defense. However, Hayes should see an expanded role in New Orleans with Steven Adams now in Memphis. This certainly gives fantasy managers something to think about on draft day.
New Orleans Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes (wrist) has been listed as questionable to play in Saturday's game versus the Mavericks due to a sprained right wrist. Hayes has emerged as a high-energy bench piece for New Orleans during March, having shot a whopping 82.1 percent from the floor overall. His scoring output has fluctuated wildly in that span, making him something of an inconsistent season-long fantasy cog. An absence would likely mean increased minutes for Willy Hernangomez, although it's unlikely that be enough to push him into DFS consideration. Check back prior to tip-off to get the final word on Hayes' status.
New Orleans Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes was pressed into increased duty during Fridays win over the New York Knicks after Derrick Favors departed early due to injury. Hayes 29 minutes of action led to his second consecutive double-double with 18 points and 10 rebounds to his credit. Factoring in his 7-for-8 shooting performance and two blocked shots, it likely marked Hayes best fantasy outing to date in his young career. Should Favors miss any significant time, Hayes would definitely be worth an add in most sized formats; for the time being, he should be draw significant DFS interest Saturday if Favors is held out.
New Orleans Pelicans center Jaxson Hayes snagged a career-high 12 rebounds off the bench during Wednesdays win over the Chicago Bulls, adding 14 points to compile the second double-double of his career. In addition to the scoring, Hayes swatted four shots, the third time this year he has collected that many in a single outing. He led the bench in minutes played (24), as he could see an increased role with Kenrich Williams out of the mix. Entering Wednesday, Hayes had scored in single digits in nine straight games, so owners will want to wait for a few more performances mirroring his Bulls production before adding him in any season-long formats.
