The preseason Bobcats

Charlotte’s fourth quarter comeback against the Miami Heat came up just six points short but they have nothing to be ashamed of because the Bobcats looked surprisingly energetic and that’s a good thing if you own any Charlotte players in your fantasy basketball games. The much maligned Kemba Walker had quite a night scoring 24 points, tied for the team lead. He also contributed the exact stats you’d like to see from your point guard. Walker produced steals, assists, and an almost 50 percent field goal percentage on the night and he was clearly the best all-around player in Charlotte. Ramon Sessions didn’t have a bad night by any means but Walker played five minutes longer and beat him out in almost every statistical category.

The power forward battle between Tyrus Thomas and Bismack Biyombo continues to rage on but neither has really done anything yet. Keep an eye on this position battle because someone needs to turn into the interior defender on this team and whoever it is going to end up with quite a lot of rebound and blocks, two categories you’re always looking for in fantasy basketball games. It was a disappointing night for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist who only managed to score four points in 18 minutes. That’s not quite the kind of numbers we expected from a player of his caliber. Kidd-Gilchrist will get plenty of chances but the fact that he’s currently playing off the bench. He did get more minutes than Jeffery Taylor but it wasn’t enough to really inspire confidence in his fantasy owners. In fantasy basketball games you’ve got to be able to count on your starters playing for at least 25 minutes every game and Kidd-Gilchrist is just not there yet. In fact, Kemba Walker and Ramon sessions may be the only two players on this team that are going to be fantasy relevant early on in the year.
