News: Bobcats G Cory Higgins has seen an increased role recently with D.J. Augustin out and that trend continued on Wednesday against the Wizards. He played 21 minutes off the bench and finished with a season-high 13 points in the 92-75 loss. He went 4 for 10 from the field, including 1 for 2 from downtown, and made 4 of 6 free throws. Higgins also chipped in with three assists in the defeat.
Analysis: Higgins has scored in double figures three times in his last four games and could continue to see playing time with Augustin still on the mend. He is shooting 48 percent over his last four contests and is seeing time behind Kemba Walker at point guard. Keep an eye on Augustin's progress going forward to see when he might be able to return. But since his production will go back down once his role is reduced, continue to ignore Higgins in the majority of Fantasy formats.
News: Bobcats G Cory Higgins, an undrafted rookie free agent, has been getting small chunks of minutes off the end of the bench, mostly in blowouts like Thursday nights 111-81 loss to the Bobcats. The 22-year old saw the floor for 12 minutes on Thursday, scoring six points on three-of-six shooting with two rebounds and an assist.
Analysis: Higgins, the University of Colorados all-time leading scorer, was claimed off waivers by the Bobcats at the start of the season. He has played in just four games this season, as he is pretty firmly stuck to the end of the bench. While he is an intriguing talent based on his college track record, he is not a player who should be on the radars of any Fantasy owners at this time.
