  • Daniels has missed all three of the Hornets' preseason games with a left hamstring strain.Daniels was expected to receive a token opportunity to challenge for a starting role with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to miss most of the season with a shoulder injury, but that chance may have fallen by the wayside. After averaging only 12.3 minutes per game with the Hornets last season, Daniels was already being regarded as a fringe rotation option, and the injury has only made matters worse. It's not clear when he might be able to get back on the court for his preseason debut.

  • Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a dislocated right shoulder in Saturday's preseason win over the Magic and is expected to miss several weeks, the Charlotte Observer reports.The injury occurred when Kidd-Gilchrist was sent flying hard to the floor after a foul by the Magic's Tobias Harris. He remained in Orlando overnight for X-rays on the shoulder, which came back negative but revealed a dislocation. He'll be officially reevaluated Monday, but a dislocated shoulder typically requires 3-12 weeks of recovery time, making it quite likely that Kidd-Gilchrist misses the Oct. 28 regular-season opener in Miami.It's not clear how much time beyond that Kidd-Gilchrist will be sidelined, but it should be clarified as he progresses from the injury. In Kidd-Gilchrist's absence, the Hornets could opt to move Nicolas Batum over from shooting guard to small forward, which may pave the way for Jeremy Lin, Jeremy Lamb, P.J. Hairston, or Troy Daniels to temporarily ascend to the starting lineup.

  • Hornets guard Troy Daniels missed practice Monday, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. Daniels missed practice for the second straight day, but he said the injury is not something he expects to linger into the preseason.

  • Hornets guard Troy Daniels was held out of Wednesday's Summer League game after he sustained a right shoulder strain, the team announced. Davis is considered day to day. In 47 games last season, Daniels averaged 3.7 points and 0.7 rebounds.

  • Hornets guard Troy Daniels got his foot in the door last season. But to join the party permanently, he must expand his game. His coaches have made that clear. Steve Clifford wants him to work more off the dribble. Associate head coach Patrick Ewing would like him to get stronger. "I'd like to see a total all-around game," Clifford told the Charlotte Observer. "He can really shoot and he's learning how to find space to get his shots off. He's worked really hard this summer at playing off the second dribble. "Now I want to see it all: him knowing the defense, all of what we're doing. He'll get plenty of opportunities (in Summer League action) in pick-and-rolls and catch-and-shoot." Daniels showed glimpses of talent last year. He made 13 of 25 shots from beyond the arc down the stretch. "That's the reason I'm in the NBA, because I shoot the ball and space the floor," he said. "That's something Charlotte needs. I showcawed it a little bit at the end of the season and hopefully I'll get to do that more." He'll apparently need to do more than that to land a spot in the rotation.
