Willy Hernangomez logged 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 FT) to go along with six rebounds and two assists Tuesday night.
Writer's Analysis: The 23 minutes for Hernangomez marks a season-high as Jaxson Hayes received his first start of the season in a matchup with Nikola Jokic's Nuggets. While this game is an outlier, it is important to point out that New Orleans may look to make some lineup changes in the midst of their five-game skid. In other words, Hernangomez could see more minutes going forward as a backup big.
