Hornets' Jalen McDaniels: Brings defensive production

McDaniels scored 10 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block across 39 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Pistons. McDaniels drew his first start in the last six games due to the absence of Miles Bridges (COVID-19 protocols), and he approached his season high in minutes. While his scoring output wasn't particularly impressive, he stuffed the stat sheet otherwise, notching his first double-digit rebounding effort of the season. He was also strong defensively and should continue to contribute plenty of steals in the absence of Bridges.

Hornets' Jalen McDaniels: Nears double-double off bench

McDaniels recorded 12 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes in Sunday's 121-111 loss to Miami. McDaniels has come off the bench in each of the last six contests and has largely struggled on the scoreboard during that time. However, he shot 60 percent from beyond the arc Sunday and came within a rebound of posting his first career double-double. While McDaniels' uptick in playing time Sunday was encouraging, he's been a somewhat unreliable fantasy contributor since he took on a bench role.

McDaniels tallied 11 points (5-12 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Knicks. The 23-year-old has now scored double-digit points in six out of his last eight games. Over McDaniels' last eight games, he's averaging 13.7 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.7 three-pointers in that span. The second-year forward should continue starting and receiving 30-plus minutes a game as long as LaMelo Ball (wrist) and Gordon Hayward (foot) are out of the lineup.

Hornets' Jalen McDaniels: Struggles with shot

McDaniels tallied nine points (3-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt), three rebounds, two steals and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Cavaliers. The 23-year-old had his worst shooting night of the season -- a painful surprise to fantasy owners, as McDaniels had been rolling over his past four games, averaging 16.3 points, 5.8 rebounds, 3.8 three-pointers, 2.8 assists and 1.5 steals while shooting 61.4 percent from the field. With LaMelo Ball (wrist) and Gordon Hayward (foot) both out for a significant period of time, McDaniels should continue starting and playing 30-plus minutes for the eighth-seeded Hornets. He'll look to bounce back Thursday on the road against the Nets.
