In the nine games that Hart wasn’t limited by injury or ejection, he’s averaged 14-7-4 in 34.0 minutes. Horton-Tucker is still worth discussing for two reasons:
I might be overstating the impact James’ return will have on Horton-Tucker, who averaged 23-7-2 with 2.0 blocks and 2.7 3s across his first three games of the season last week; and
James might not return Friday, giving us at least one more game of excellent production from THT.
I mentioned in the Hart section that the Pelicans have been fully healthy for the last three games. He’s averaging 1.8 stocks in 24.8 minutes on the season, and he’s matched that pace exactly over the last three games.
The biggest improvement is coming on the glass, as he’s snagged at least six rebounds in six of his last seven games, nearly doubling his per-game average compared to his first seven games this year.
