  • Hornets' Cody Zeller: Dealing with sore knee
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zeller is dealing with a sore right knee, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Zeller has recently been participating with the USA Select Team, which trains with the USA National Team while they prepare for the Olympic Games. After training for two days with the Select team, he appeared to have tweaked his knee, so he'll drop out to avoid any further complications. Considering the knee is only listed as sore, it doesn't appear to be too serious and with training camp still months away, Zeller shouldn't have a problem returning to full health prior to its start. Zeller spent the majority of his 2015-16 campaign in a starter's role, but with Roy Hibbert joining the Hornets during free agency, it could mean a move back to the bench for the 23-year-old big man.

  • Zeller provided six points (3-7 FG) and seven rebounds across 17 minutes in Sunday's 106-73 Game 7 loss to the Heat. Zeller looked a little gimpy in the last two games of the series due to a knee injury suffered in Game 5, but he was able to tough it out and give the Hornets some quality minutes off the bench. The former No. 4 overall pick served in a starting role for much of the season, but after being roughed up by Heat big man Hassan Whiteside for the first few games of the playoffs, coach Steve Clifford opted to go with Al Jefferson as his starting center for the rest of the series. Zeller's reduced role down the stretch doesn't seem encouraging for his prospects entering 2016-17, but he'll still be coming off the best season of his career, during which he averaged 8.7 points and 6.2 rebounds.

  • Zeller left for the locker room with an apparent injury during the second quarter of Game 5 against Miami, and is questionable to return, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. It is unclear whether or not Zeller will return to the game. In Zeller's absence, Spencer Hawes, Frank Kaminsky, and Al Jefferson may see a slight boost in playing time.

  • Zeller tallied eight points (3-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds across 21 minutes in Monday's 89-85 Game 4 win over the Heat. Zeller has come off the bench for the last two games of the series, but the move hasn't really affected his minutes count. He'll continue to essentially split the minutes at center with Al Jefferson, who logged nine points, five boards, and three assists over 26 minutes Monday.

  • Hornets' Cody Zeller: Moving to bench
    By RotoWire Staff

    Zeller will move to the bench for Saturday's Game 3 against the Heat. To counter the Heat's smaller starting five, Charlotte will go big in Game 3 with Al Jefferson, Frank Kaminsky and Marvin Williams comprising the starting frontcourt. Zeller and Jeremy Lin will both shift to the bench, with Kemba Walker and Courtney Lee starting in the backcourt. Zeller played only 14 minutes in Game 2 on Wednesday, finishing with eight points and five rebounds.
