  • Kidd-Gilchrist scored 13 points (6-11 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 32 minutes in Monday's 89-79 loss to the Bucks. Although he has received the minutes to evolve into a viable fantasy option, Kidd-Gilchrist lacks a shot outside of the paint that he can consistently make. His rebound totals are average for a small forward, and since he is mostly useful around the basket on offense, he fails to put up more than 10 points more often than not, as his season average sits at 9.1 points per game.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) will play in Wednesday's game against the Magic. Kidd-Gilchrist was listed a probable headed into Wednesday's contest, so his availability does not come as a surprise, and he should be in line for a regular workload in Orlando. His limitations offensively, however, continue to put a limit on his overall fantasy value, despite Kidd-Gilchrist playing around 30 minutes per game this season.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) is listed as probable Wednesday against the Magic. The forward departed Monday's game against the Hawks with a sprained right ankle, but it doesn't look to be anything serious, as the results of his MRI came back negative. While Kidd-Gilchrist remains a strong, versatile defender, his offensive numbers are down this season, and he's yet to develop any semblance of an outside game, which hampers his fantasy value.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a sprained right ankle during Monday's game against the Hawks and won't return. Kidd-Gilchrist played 21 minutes prior to departing, finishing with nine points (4-8 FG, 1-2 FT), three assists, three steals and two rebounds. While his injury is being labeled as a sprain, he'll likely undergo additional tests as the Hornets look to determine if the injury is more severe than anticipated. The Hornets are back on the schedule Wednesday against the Magic, so consider Kidd-Gilchrist questionable for that contest until the team provides an update.

  • Kidd-Gilchrist registered 22 points (9-12 FG, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, and one assist in 35 minutes during Monday's 115-109 loss to the Bulls. While the normally defensively dominant Kidd-GIlchrist didn't record any steals or blocks, he was extremely efficient on offense. His point total was the highest since the season debut, in which he scored 23 points against the Bucks. This was also the first time since Feb. 7 that Kidd-Gilchrist attempted at least 10 shots from the field. The absence of Nicolas Batum (migraine) likely forced Kidd-Gilchrist to be a bit more assertive offensively. Batum will likely return to the lineup soon though, so it might not be wise to expect similar production going forward from Kidd-Gilchrist. Nevertheless, he is averaging career bests in steals (1.0), blocks (1.0), and free throw percentage (77.5), and makes for a decent option in most leagues thanks to his ability to provide serviceable numbers in every category except three-point shooting.
