    Hornets' Cody Zeller: Cleared to return Wednesday

    Zeller (shoulder) has been cleared to return Wednesday against the Cavaliers. Zeller was initially listed as questionable, but after being evaluated at shootaround, he's been given the green light to return following a string of six consecutive absences. Zeller may be limited in his first game back, but he'll likely reclaim the starting center spot from Spencer Hawes.

    Hornets' Cody Zeller: Listed as questionable vs. Cavs

    Zeller (shoulder) is considered questionable to play Wednesday against Cleveland. Zeller has missed the last six games with a right shoulder strain, but he looks to be nearing a return. The Hornets have not commented on Zeller's progress since ruling him out for a week on Jan. 23, but the assumption is that he'll have a chance to return Wednesday, depending upon how the shoulder feels at shootaround. A more defintiive update should be available Wednesday morning.

    Hornets' Cody Zeller: Will miss at least a week

    Zeller will miss at least the next week due to a sprained ligament in his left shoulder, the Hornets' official site reports. Already missing his second game in a row due to the injury Saturday, the extent was confirmed via MRI. Zeller will be evaluated in a week to determine the next course of action, but the ailment is within the same shoulder that endured a torn rotator cuff last April, which kept him out of shooting drills until July.

    Hornets' Cody Zeller: Plays season-high 42 minutes in 2OT victory

    Zeller scored 14 points (4-9 FG, 6-8 FT) with six rebounds, one assist, and a block over 42 minutes in a 124-119 double-overtime victory over the Jazz on Monday. After a pair of sub-par performances on Jan. 15 and Jan. 16, Zeller rebounded for a solid offensive performance while attempting at least eight free-throws for just the second time since Dec. 7. While Frank Kaminsky has earned a larger role in coach Steve Clifford's rotation lately, Zeller received a vote of confidence in the form of 17 additional minutes of playing time Monday.

    Hornets' Cody Zeller: Notches double-double in defeat

    Zeller finished with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three steals, and one block across 34 minutes in Wednesday's 111-102 loss to the Suns. With Frank Kaminsky struggling with his shot over the last few games, Zeller has seen a slight bump in playing time, and has ratcheted up his defensive production in the process. Though he's mostly been a non-factor in the defensive categories over his first two-plus seasons of his career, the 23-year-old has averaged eight boards, 1.5 steals, and 1.1 blocks over the last 10 games, giving him a higher ceiling in DFS than some might expect.

    Hornets' Cody Zeller: Scores 12 points Wednesday

    Zeller scored 12 points (4-6 FG, 4-4 FT), grabbed eight rebounds, swiped three steals, and recorded one block in 28 minutes during the Hornets' 122-117 loss versus the Clippers on Wednesday. Zeller played well despite the loss, and figures to continue starting at center with Al Jefferson (knee surgery) sidelined for the foreseeable future. The Hornets don't really run plays for Zeller, but he still finds a way to put up decent scoring and rebounding numbers. Over the last five games, Zeller has averages of 10.6 points (60.5 FG, 70.0 FT), 7.8 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 0.8 assists, and 0.8 blocks in 30 minutes per game.
