  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Cameo appearance Tuesday

    Hayes notched zero points (0-1 FG) and one rebound over three minutes during Tuesday's 121-103 loss to the Kings.

    Hayes made it into the rotation for the first time in more than a week, failing to score in his three minutes. While there have been a couple of small flashes this season, Hayes is clearly not a part of the Pelicans' plans for the future. He is comfortably outside the top 350 for the season, telling you everything you need to know about his fantasy fortunes this season and beyond.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Comes close to double-double

    Hayes accumulated 11 points (5-8 FG, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 32 minutes during Saturday's 110-96 loss to the Thunder.

    Hayes needed two more rebounds to secure a double-double, and the big man was productive on both ends of the court with a solid stat-filling performance. He has struggled to see consistent minutes but seems to be turning things around of late and has made the most of his chances, putting up double-digit points in three of his last five appearances.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Productive off bench

    Hayes produced 15 points (4-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, three assists, two blocks and two steals over 16 minutes during Wednesday's 121-110 victory over Portland.

    Hayes played 25 minutes during Monday's loss to Orlando but wasn't as productive as he was against the Trail Blazers, as he contributed on both ends of the court while matching his second-highest scoring total of the season. While Hayes should continue to see increased playing time while Larry Nance (ankle) is sidelined, his production will likely be inconsistent, particularly when Jonas Valanciunas (calf) returns to action.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Takes over as backup center

    Hayes produced six points (3-4 FG), five rebounds and two steals across 25 minutes in Monday's 101-93 loss to the Magic.

    After Larry Nance (ankle) exited early in the Pelicans' previous game Saturday against the Knicks, Willy Hernangomez (nine points, eight rebounds and three steals in 11 minutes) stepped in to fill most of the playing time that was available behind starting center Jonas Valanciunas. Though Nance was sidelined again Monday, head coach Willie Green opted to turn to Hayes as the backup center over Hernangomez, who didn't leave the bench. Because both of the Magic's centers (Wendell Carter and Moritz Wagner) offered some floor-stretching ability, Green may have preferred the more athletic Hayes to chase the opposing bigs around the perimeter, but Hernangomez could be more of a factor when New Orleans matches up with more traditional back-to-the-basket centers. In any event, both Hayes and Hernangomez are likely to find themselves out of the rotation whenever Nance is ready to play again.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Steps back into rotation

    Hayes finished Sunday's 136-104 win over the Kings with six points (2-5 FG, 2-3 3Pt), four rebounds and four steals in 19 minutes.

    The absences of Jonas Valanciunas (quadriceps) and Brandon Ingram (toe) paved the way for Willy Hernangomez and Hayes to crack the rotation, after both failed to get off the bench in the previous two and three games, respectively. Hernangomez (22 points, 16 rebounds, four assists in 28 minutes) and to a lesser degree Hayes both came away with intriguing fantasy lines Sunday, but the blowout played a factor, as only two Pelicans starters logged more than 30 minutes. Valanciunas may miss additional games beyond Sunday, but assuming Ingram is back in the fold Tuesday against the Hawks, the Pelicans likely won't have room in the rotation for both Hayes and Hernangomez.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Back to bench

    Hayes isn't starting Wednesday's game against Minnesota, Andrew Lopez of reports.

    Hayes drew a spot start Tuesday, but he totaled just four points, four rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes. He'll return to the bench with Brandon Ingram (toe) back in the starting lineup for the first time since Nov. 25.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Spot start amounts to little

    Hayes finished with four points (0-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes during Tuesday's 99-98 loss to Denver.

    Hayes moved into the starting lineup Tuesday but struggled to have any sort of impact on the game. This was basically a case of the next man up for Hayes, as he started as a result of injuries to multiple players. Even when handed meaningful minutes, Hayes is typically not a viable fantasy option, even in slightly deeper formats.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Gets chance with starting five

    Hayes is starting Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Hayes will get a turn with the first unit with Zion Williamson (hamstring), Brandon Ingram (toe) and Naji Marshall (toe) all out of the mix. Hayes has made only one other start this season, which dates back to Dec. 26 against Indiana.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Pops for 14 points in loss

    Hayes finished with 14 points (6-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes during Friday's 123-110 loss to the Magic.

    Hayes scored double-digits for the first time in almost three weeks, highlighting just what a struggle it has been thus far this season. Even with multiple players being out, Hayes has been unable to carve out a significant role, typically playing no more than about 18 minutes on any given night. At this point, he should be viewed as nothing more than a deeper league consideration.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Serviceable again Monday

    Hayes recorded 10 points (3-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 19 minutes during Monday's 120-111 loss to the 76ers.

    Hayes saw at least 19 minutes for the fifth time in his past six games, continuing what has been easily his best stretch of the season thus far. While his production has been serviceable at best, he could be in line for a slight uptick in playing time, assuming Zion Williamson misses time due to the hamstring injury he suffered during the loss. Managers in deeper formats should definitely give Hayes a look, while those in 12-team leagues could put him on their radar.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Returns to bench

    Hayes isn't in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against Minnesota, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Zion Williamson will reclaim his starting job from Hayes on Wednesday after missing the last three games with COVID-19. Hayes averaged 14.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.3 blocks in 23.7 over that span.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Flirts with double-double in start

    Hayes racked up 15 points (5-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and three blocks across 31 minutes during Monday's 113-93 win over the Pacers.

    Hayes moved into the starting lineup Monday, logging a season-high 31 minutes in the process. The Pelicans were without a number of regular rotational pieces, so Hayes stepped into a sizeable role for the second straight game. While he can be a stream consideration, even in 12-team formats, his run is likely to come to a grinding halt as soon as the team starts getting healthy bodies back on the floor.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Starting Monday

    Hayes is in the starting five Monday against Indiana.

    Hayes is getting the starting nod for the first time this year. Off the bench, the center has averaged 3.1 points and 2.2 rebounds in 9.4 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Best game of season

    Hayes closed with 21 points (8-9 FG, 5-8 FT), six rebounds and four assists over 28 minutes during Friday's 128-125 overtime victory over the Thunder.

    Hayes posted season highs in points, rebounds, assists and minutes Friday. However, fantasy managers shouldn't get too excited unless Zion Williamson (COVID-19 protocols) misses extended time, as Hayes has been out of the Pelicans' rotation for much of the season.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Minimal role once again

    Hayes closed with zero points (0-2 FG) and one rebound over four minutes during Wednesday's 120-117 overtime loss to the Lakers.

    Although Wednesday's matchup went to overtime, Hayes' playing time remained limited. After averaging 20.0 minutes per game last year, he's been held under 10 minutes of playing time in four of his five appearances to begin the 2022-23 campaign. The 22-year-old had some promising fantasy performances last year but hasn't had a fantasy-relevant role early this season.

  • Pelicans' Jaxson Hayes: Questionable again Friday

    Hayes (elbow) is listed as questionable for Friday's game versus Charlotte.

    Hayes missed the team's season opener due to a torn UCL he suffered Oct. 7. He was also listed as questionable Wednesday, so it is still up in the air if he will play Friday. Larry Nance and Naji Marshall played 21 and 14 minutes, respectively, with Hayes missing from the frontcourt rotation Wednesday.
