News: Zeller scored 21 points (10-11 FG, 1-2 FT) with eight rebounds, three assists, three steals and two blocks during the win against the Nuggets on Saturday
Impact: Zeller shot an impressive 10-of-11 from the field and chipped in across the board Saturday. Despite the impressive line, Zeller just isn't getting enough shots, averaging 6.1 field goal attempts per game, and only registering one double-double the entire season. He's a borderline deep-league option at best until he shows more consistent production.
News: Roberts had a rough outing Saturday as he was held scoreless on 0-for-7 shooting. He finished with six assists and four rebounds in 23 minutes on the floor.
Impact: Roberts' struggles continued Saturday, but it seems as though he'll remain the starting point guard until Kemba Walker returns. Even if he continues to start, he carries a low ceiling and an even lower floor.
News: Stephenson had a career-high 13 assists Saturday against Denver, which made up for his four points on 2-of-10 shooting. He also added five rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes on the floor.
Impact: Stephenson's 30 minutes were the most he's played since returning from a pelvic injury and his 13 assists were a career-high. His shooting should improve as he rounds into form, but his contributions in other categories are encouraging. It remains to be seen when he'll crack the starting lineup, but he has been averaging a solid 25.4 minutes over his last five games.
News: Hairston (ankle) is probable for Saturday's game, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.
Impact: He sprained the ankle in Friday's contest, but it is not believed to be serious, and all expectations are that he will play Saturday. Harrison has not been seeing consistent minutes, so he is best left on fantasy benches/waiver wires for now.
News: Williams (concussion) will not play Saturday, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.
Impact: He suffered the concussion and also broke his nose a week ago, but is not yet ready to return to action. However, Bonnell also reported that there is a good chance Williams will be able to return to action Monday.
