Plumlee (calf) is no longer listed on the Hornets' injury report, Stephanie Ready of FOX Sports Southeast reports. He's expected to be available off the bench Sunday against the Suns. Plumlee was also active Friday against the Cavaliers, but coach Steve Clifford never intended to use him in the contest. With another day of practice under his belt, Plumlee may have a more realistic chance at seeing the court Sunday, but his long layoff due to the strained calf could mean that he's no longer included in the team's rotation. If that's the case, Clifford may be inclined to proceed with Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky as his primary centers for the rest of the season.
Plumlee (calf) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Magic. Plumlee was able to take part in some on-court workouts a week ago, but it's still uncertain how close he actually is to playing again. The fifth-year center is averaging just 2.6 points and 2.0 rebounds in 10.2 minutes per game over 37 appearances this season, so he won't hold much value in deeper leagues once he's healthy again.
Plumlee (calf) went through on-court activities Tuesday but remains without a timetable for a return. It's a step in the right direction for the big man, but it remains unclear when he'll be able to return to full-speed work. A second-degree right calf strain has kept Plumlee out of action for more than a month, but the hope is that he'll be back on the court within the next couple of weeks. Until Plumlee is back, expect Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky to handle nearly all of the minutes at center.
Plumlee (calf) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Pelicans. The Hornets will be playing with a thin frontcourt Saturday, which could prove problematic against the Pelicans' dynamic interior tandem of Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins. Cody Zeller figures to assume most of the minutes at center for the Hornets, while the absences of Plumlee, Frank Kaminsky (shoulder) and Johnny O'Bryant (ankle) leave Christian Wood as Zeller's top backup.
Plumlee (calf) has been ruled out for Monday's contest against the Bulls. Plumlee has yet to return to the hardwood since injuring his calf one month ago. The expectation is that he is closing in on a return, but it remains to be seen how big of a role, if any, he'll have when he suits back up. Charlotte seems to favor both Frank Kaminsky and Cody Zeller over Plumlee.
