Hornets' Isaiah Thomas: Posts 14 points off bench
Thomas contributed 14 points (5-8 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist and one steal in the 124-108 win over Washington on Sunday.
Thomas averaged just 7.3 points on 40.6 percent shooting in his previous 10 games but doubled that total in just 13 minutes of action.

Hornets' Isaiah Thomas: Strong effort off bench
Thomas provided 12 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 21 minutes during Monday's 113-109 loss to Denver.
The veteran has played 11 games for the Hornets thus far and has been serviceable off the bench since he's scored 10 or more points in six of those contests. While he's not going to be the dominant player he once was with the Celtics, he remains a capable contributor at the NBA level. Over that 11-game span, he's averaging 9.3 points per game while shooting 44.7 percent from the field and 40 percent from three.... See More ... See Less

Thomas hit all four of his triple-tries Monday, providing a nice spark off the bench. The veteran guard has now scored in double-digits in all but one game since joining the Hornets, averaging 10.3 points to go with 2.5 triples and 2.3 assists. While this is a feel-good story for Thomas, his role is clearly not enough for him to be considered a viable asset in standard fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less

In his third appearance for the Hornets, Thomas caught fire from the outside and sank a season-high four shots from beyond the arc en route to his fourth double-digit scoring outing of the season. The point guard's 10 day contract is expiring soon, but time will tell if he produced well enough to earn a second contract from the Hornets.
