Top Leaky Black News

  • Hornets' Leaky Black: Moves to bench Saturday

    Black is not starting in Saturday's game against the Grizzlies, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    Black started each of the Hornets' last three games but struggled to make an impact, averaging 3.0 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists across 23.0 minutes per game in those outings. Tre Mann will take his place in the starting unit, featuring alongside Cody Martin, Brandon Miller, Miles Bridges and Nick Richards.

  • Hornets' Leaky Black: Quiet in first start

    Black logged two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds and two assists in 16 minutes during Monday's 124-118 loss to the Lakers.

    This was the first start of Black's career, but he failed to make the most of it. The Hornets are expected to be sellers at the trade deadline, and they are dealing with injuries across the roster, so Black may get more opportunities going forward.

  • Hornets' Leaky Black: Will start Monday

    Black will make his first career start against the Lakers on Monday, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    The Hornets continue to shuffle their starting lineup while dealing with numerous injuries. Black hasn't played more than 20 minutes in a game this season and has scored in double figures just once.

  • Hornets' Leaky Black: Steps in, knocks down shots

    Black chipped in 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-3 3Pt), two assists and one rebound across 18 minutes during Friday's 126-106 loss to the Thunder.

    Black has compiled just 130 minutes of action across 18 appearances for the Hornets this season, but the rookie two-way player proved to be a key rotation cog Friday. A five-year collegiate player at North Carolina, Black shot 32.6 percent on 2.6 three-pointers per game in his final campaign, so a larger sample size is needed to determine if he can emerge as a capable perimeter shooter at the NBA level.

  • Hornets' Leaky Black: Sticks in rotation Saturday

    Black closed Saturday's 134-122 loss to the Jazz with three points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) over seven minutes.

    Black played seven minutes in the loss, seeing action for the fourth straight game. Despite cracking the rotation a few times recently, Black has struggled to have any tangible impact, especially in terms of fantasy numbers. Simply put, there is no reason to consider him a viable fantasy asset.
