Willy Hernangomez News
Center Willy Hernangomez agreed to a three-year deal to remain with the Pelicans. The 2015 second-round draft pick has played in New York and Charlotte throughout his career before ending up in New Orleans. The 27-year-old wasn't a consistent fantasy option last season, but throughout his 12 games in the starting lineup, he averaged a double-double by way of 11.5 points and 10.8 rebounds. While Hernangomez remains behind Jonas Valanciunas and Jaxson Hayes on the depth chart, his ceiling will get much higher if he lands a consistent role at some point during the year.
New Orleans Pelicans center Willy Hernangomez rolled to a 19-point, 13-rebound double-double in the team's final game of the season on Sunday. He also had two blocks and one steal in a home loss to the Lakers. Hernangomez shot 8-for-11 from the field and 3-for-5 at the foul line. The Spanish center became a fantasy factor late in the season when Steven Adams (toe) went down and the team waved the white flag in the playoff race. It's the same old story with him, as Hernangomez always puts up good numbers when he gets meaningful playing time, but the consistent minutes sadly aren't there for him. He averaged 11.5 points and 10.8 rebounds per game in 12 outings as a starter this season.
New Orleans Pelicans center Willy Hernangomez posted his second double-double of the month in Wednesday's loss to the Dallas Mavericks. Hernangomez scored 12 points and grabbed 10 rebounds in the game. He shot 3-for-5 from the field and 6-for-8 from the free throw strike. He also added three assists and a steal. The Pelicans were without many of their primary players including Lonzo Ball (thumb), Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Steven Adams, so Hernangomez took advantage of the extra opportunities. Next up for Hernangomez and the Pelicans is a matchup against the Golden State Warriors on Friday.
New Orleans Pelicans center Willy Hernangomez collected a 12-point, 10-rebound double-double in Monday's 109-87 win over the Clippers, shooting 5-for-7 from the field and logging 31 minutes as a starter. Steven Adams (toe) sat this one out. Hernangomez produced three steals and one block on the defensive end. He seems to always put up nice numbers when he gets enough minutes, but that mostly isn't the case. The Pelicans play the Nuggets next, which would be a great matchup for Hernangomez with Denver allowing opposing centers to shoot 56 percent against them, but Adams' injury doesn't sound very serious, and he could easily return on Wednesday.
