    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Undergoes successful surgery

    Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair a torn labrum. As was reported Tuesday, Kidd-Gilchrist's right shoulder procedure -- his second in four months -- will keep him out for the remainder of the 2015-16 season, ending his campaign with just seven games played. The Hornets wasted no time in finding a player to replace Kidd-Gilchrist, as the team surrendered P.J. Hairston and a pair of second-round draft picks to the Grizzlies on Tuesday in exchange for Courtney Lee. Look for Lee to immediately enter the starting five at the wing spot opposite Nicolas Batum.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Will miss rest of season

    Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) will undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum and will miss the rest of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Kidd-Gilchrist suffered the same injury back in October, which kept him out until late last month. The former No. 2 overall pick made his season debut Jan. 29 in Portland and started the next six games before re-tearing the labrum Wednesday against Indiana in the Hornets' final pre-All-Star break contest. As expected, Kidd-Gilchrist will sit out the remainder of the season, but Charlotte is yet to issue an official recovery timetable. The initial October injury entailed a timetable of 4-to-6 months, so Kidd-Gilchrist would look to have a good chance to be back at full strength before the start of the 2016-17 season, assuming he'll face a similar recovery process.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Tore his right labrum against the Pacers on Wednesday

    Kidd-Gilchrist's MRI revealed a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Kidd-Gilchrist injured his shoulder in Wednesday night's game against the Pacers. Though team officials say he will be re-evaluated after the All-Star break, the severity of the injury likely means that Kidd-Gilchrist will be out indefinitely.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Set for MRI on Thursday

    Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Thursday, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Kidd-Gilchrist dislocated his right shoulder in Wednesday's 117-95 win over the Pacers, but the severity of the ailment won't be known until the results of the MRI are made available. The 22-year-old, who is averaging 12.7 points and 6.4 rebounds over 29.3 minutes, was making just his seventh appearance of the season Wednesday after returning from a lengthy absence due to a torn labrum in that same right shoulder. Even if Kidd-Gilchrist doesn't require surgery to address this latest setback, it's fair to speculate that he'll be sidelined for at least a few weeks due to the injury, making him a drop candidate in most shallower formats. P.J. Hairston and Jeremy Lamb are likely to take on increased roles in the Hornets' rotation for the duration of Kidd-Gilchrist's absence.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Dislocates right shoulder

    Kidd-Gilchrist is out for the remainder of Wednesday's game versus the Pacers after dislocating his right shoulder. This is unfortunate news for Kidd-Gilchrist, who has been playing exceptionally well since making his season debut on Jan. 29. He has averaged 13.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 31 minutes over seven games. There is currently no time table for a return, but the timing right before the All Star break is somewhat fortunate. Expect an update on his status when more information on his injury becomes available.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Scores season-high 20 points in Monday's win over Bulls

    Kidd-Gilchrist scored a season-high 20 points (7-14 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) with seven rebounds and two blocks during 30 minutes in Monday's 108-91 win against the Bulls. In just his sixth game of the season, MKG looked pretty good on offense albeit against a very depleted Chicago squad. He's getting plenty of minutes, so it'a only a matter of time before Kidd-Gilchrist starts to turn that into more fantasy production. With P.J. Hairston sitting out games, MKG isn't really splitting minutes with anyone at small forward, depending on which lineup head coach Steve Clifford decides to roll with.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Grabs 13 boards in third game of season

    Kidd-Gilchrist scored 11 points (5-14 FG, 0-1 3pt, 1-2 FT) to go with 13 rebounds over 37 minutes in a 106-97 victory over the Cavaliers on Wednesday. Kidd-Gilchrist's defense has been a welcome presence in coach Steve Clifford's rotation. After being sidelined with a shoulder injury through the first three months of the season, Kidd-Gilchrist hasn't missed a step in his return to action -- averaging a double-double (14.3 points with 10.7 boards) in his first three games of the year. If Kidd-Gilchrist was up to the task of guarding LeBron James, we can safely assume he's made a full recovery from surgery.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Double-double in Sunday's win

    Kidd-Gilchrist scored 19 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 5-8 FT) while adding 12 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 28 minutes during Sunday's win over the Lakers. The Hornets were ahead by 23 points heading into the fourth quarter, otherwise Kidd-Gilchrist might have seen more action and put up an even better line. He looks fully fit after missing the first 46 games of the season with a shoulder injury, and MKG could become a regular double-double threat in the second half.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Posts 13 points in season debut

    Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) made his season debut and scored 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-6 FT), posted seven rebounds and dished out an assist over 34 minutes in Friday's 109-91 loss to the Trail Blazers. The four-year pro wasted no time getting right back into the swing of things after offseason shoulder surgery, playing a robust 34 minutes and turning in both a productive and mistake-free performance. Kidd-Gilchrist did not commit any turnovers or get whistled for any personal fouls, a notable feat considering the amount of rust he was trying to shake off. He appeared fully capable of handling the full workload he took on, meaning he should receive plenty of opportunity to build on Friday's effort in the coming days. While fantasy owners will need to see him string several successful performances together to be convinced, the 22-year-old could hardly have made a better first impression considering his surprisingly early return from this injury.

    Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Will start Friday

    Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) will play and start Friday when the Hornets take on the Trail Blazers. Kidd-Gilchrist will make his season debut well ahead of schedule Friday. He was originally expected to miss six-months after surgery in October, but he will return after a mere three month absence. His minutes are up in the air, but the Hornets starting him indicates he should see a decent workload. His role with the team will have to be monitored going forward, but this is obviously good news for all owners.
