Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Ready to go for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Monday that Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) is in great shape and ready to go for training camp, Steve Reed of The Associated Press reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist was limited to just seven games last season after requiring two surgeries to address a torn labrum, with his latest procedure occurring in February. The fifth-year forward has been known as a defense-first player throughout his career, but he showed some real growth on the other end of the court last season, albeit in a small sample. Over those seven games, Kidd-Gilchrist averaged 12.7 points (on 54.1% shooting) to go with 6.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 29.3 minutes per contest. Clifford said that Kidd-Gilchrist won't face any restrictions in training camp or during the season, so the 23-year-old makes for a relatively risk-free fantasy pick, despite last season being almost entirely ruined by injury. He's set to start at small forward and could be in line for a career-best production.

Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Expects to ready for 2016-17 season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) expects to be ready to go for the start of next season, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist underwent the second of two surgeries to repair a torn labrum in February, after missing all but seven games during the 2015-16 campaign. He's progressed to the point in his rehab this summer where he's now able to do some shooting, lifting and running, so it appears Kidd-Gilchrist is well on his way to being ready for the start of next season. We'll likely hear more regarding his recovery when training camp nears, but look for him to jump right back into the Hornets' rotation in his first year of the four-year, $52 million contract extension he received back in August.

Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Michael 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 Charlotte 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
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) will undergo surgery to repair a torn right labrum and will miss the rest of the season, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist suffered the same injury back in October and required surgery, which kept him out until late January. The former No. 2 overall pick made his season debut Jan. 29 against the Trail Blazers and started the next six games before re-tearing the labrum Wednesday against the Pacers in the Hornets' final pre-All-Star break contest. As expected, the procedure will keep Kidd-Gilchrist on the shelf for the rest of the season, but the Hornets haven't specified how deep into the summer the forward will be sidelined. The initial October injury entailed a timetable of four-to-six months, so Kidd-Gilchrist looks like a fairly safe bet to be back at full strength before the start of the 2016-17 season. In the meantime, P.J. Hairston is expected to claim Kidd-Gilchrist's spot in the starting five, while Jeremy Lamb and Jeremy Lin could also benefit from added minutes.

Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Tore his right labrum against the Pacers on Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kidd-Gilchrist's underwent an MRI on Thursday which revealed a torn labrum in his right shoulder. He's been ruled out indefinitely.

It's a tough break for Kidd-Gilchrist, who suffered the same injury during the preseason and was sidelined for nearly four months before making his season debut in late January. Given that Kidd-Gilchrist was initially projected to miss up to six months with that injury, it appears safe to assume that the small forward will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, even if he progresses in a similarly quick manner this time around. The team will re-evaluate Kidd-Gilchrist after the All-Star break before outlining a more definitive timetable for his return. Look for P.J. Hairston to return to the starting five in Kidd-Gilchrist's place, while bench wings such as Jeremy Lamb and Jeremy Lin could also see their roles increase.
