  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Leads battle on the glass

    Richards finished with 13 points (6-6 FG, 1-3 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and one block across 26 minutes during Monday's 111-102 win over the Pacers. Richards was one of three Hornets with at least nine rebounds Tuesday, fueling a 46 to 32 advantage over Indiana in the rebounding battle. He has burst onto the scene as a top nightly rebounder, and his 67.9 percent shooting is the third-highest mark in the league.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Bounces back with double-double

    Richards recorded 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds and one block in 30 minutes during Friday's 120-84 loss to Milwaukee. The Hornets lost in a rout Friday, but Richards had a positive performance, going an efficient 7-for-9 from the field. His 16 points tied for the team lead, while his 11 boards paced the club. This was Richards' 11th double-double of the campaign, and he's proven to be a viable fantasy asset as a source of rebounds, blocks and moderate scoring, though he had been struggling coming into Friday with an average of just 4.5 points, 7.5 boards and 0.5 blocks over his previous two contests.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Stabilizing at low volume

    Richards registered eight points (3-5 FG, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block across 31 minutes during Friday's 126-106 loss to the Thunder. Richards continues to profile as an above-average shot blocker and rebounder on both ends. Interestingly, Richards carries similar splits playing with or without LaMelo Ball (ankle) this season, so his ability to boom is more tied to game script and matchup. Shot selection is also a factor given that Richards often feasts on putback attempts and easy looks at the basket.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Solid outing Friday vs. Rockets

    Richards accumulated 14 points (3-6 FG, 8-11 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and three blocks over 27 minutes during Friday's 138-104 loss to the Rockets. Richards followed up his 21-point performance Thursday against the Hornets by scoring 14 points on Friday, eight of which came from the free-throw line. His three blocks on the night marked the fifth time this season he's reached that total. Since becoming the full-time starter Dec. 11, Richards is averaging 9.8 points on 64.3 percent shooting, 8.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.4 blocks over 28.8 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Career-best scoring night

    Richards (ankle) contributed 21 points (9-13 FG, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds and one block in 27 minutes during Wednesday's 113-106 loss to the Pistons. Richards made a strong return from a three-game absence due to an ankle injury, as the 21 points were a career high while the double-double was his eighth of the season. The fourth-year center hasn't been able to produce much offense beyond finishing off put-backs since moving into the starting lineup for Mark Williams (back), and through nine contests in January, Richards is averaging 9.9 points, 9.4 boards, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 assists while shooting 60.9 percent from the floor.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Officially ruled out

    Richards (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against Minnesota. As expected, Richards has been downgraded from doubtful to out and will miss a third straight game due to a right ankle sprain. Mark Williams (back) also remains out, so P.J. Washington, Nathan Mensah and JT Thor are candidates for increased roles against Minnesota's stout frontcourt. Richards' next chance to suit up will come Wednesday in Detroit.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Unlikely to play Monday

    Richards (ankle) has been downgraded to doubtful for Monday's game against Minnesota. Richards missed both halves of Charlotte's recent back-to-back set and will likely be sidelined for a third straight game Monday. He had been playing well in the absence of Mark Williams (back), but with both big men sidelined, P.J. Washington has been starting next to Miles Bridges in the frontcourt, while Nathan Mensah and JT Thor handle increased roles off the bench.

If the 26-year-old big man is ruled out, Nathan Mensah could receive increased playing time.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Sprains ankle, iffy to return

    Richards is questionable to return to Wednesday's game against the Pelicans with a sprained right ankle. Richards sustained the injury in the second quarter and could miss the second half of Wednesday's tilt. If he's unable to return, P.J. Washington and Nathan Mensah would be expected to handle more minutes.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Quality stats in loss

    Richards notched 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 30 minutes during Monday's 111-93 loss to Denver. Richards finished with a team-worst minus-29 net rating during his time on the court, but he nonetheless delivered his second-highest scoring output of the season while logging double-digit shot attempts for the first time through 25 appearances. Despite lacking versatility on both ends, Richards has been a passable rim protector and grades as an above-average offensive rebounder, which should help him secure a sizable role until Mark Williams (back) can return.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Third straight double-double

    Richards ended with 11 points (5-5 FG, 1-3 FT), 10 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 26 minutes during Thursday's 133-112 loss to the Lakers. The fourth-year center has thrived while Mark Williams (back) has been sidelined. Richards has started nine straight games and delivered four double-doubles during that stretch, including a current three-game streak, while averaging 9.6 points, 8.8 boards, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 assists and shooting 69.2 percent from the floor. Williams still has no clear timeline for his return, so Richards' fantasy appeal will remain boosted in the short term.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Top rebounder in double-double

    Richards closed with 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-6 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal over 38 minutes during Saturday's 102-95 loss to the Nuggets. Richards led all players in rebounds while finishing as one of four Hornets with a double-digit point total and as the lone player with a double-double in a losing effort. Richards secured a season high in rebounds and has hauled in 10 or more boards in six contests this year. He has notched a double-double in two of his last three games and should continue to see increased playing time as long as Mark Williams (back) remains sidelined.

    Richards totaled 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds and three assists in 32 minutes during Monday's 114-99 loss to Toronto. This was the third double-double of the campaign for Richards. Mark Williams has missed five straight games due to a back injury, and it's likely he could miss more with the Hornets regularly throwing doubtful tags on him.
