Hornets' Brian Roberts: Ruled out vs. Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Roberts (hamstring) has been ruled out for Wednesday's season opener against the Bucks.

Reports earlier in the week suggested Roberts would be available Wednesday, but he's apparently regressed in his recovery from a strained left hamstring. Roberts' unavailability shouldn't change the minutes distribution at the point guard spot, as the veteran was the third-string option behind Kemba Walker and Ramon Sessions and won't be a regular member of coach Steve Clifford's rotation.

Hornets' Frank Kaminsky: Ruled out for opener
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kaminsky (foot) has been formally ruled out for Wednesday's season opener against the Bucks.

Kaminsky suffered a strained right foot in the Hornets' preseason finale last Friday against the Timberwolves, and he'll be held out of action for the opener after failing to return to full practice earlier in the week. The second-year big man isn't expected to miss extended time, but he should be considered questionable for the Hornets' next game Friday against the Heat. In the absence of Kaminsky, expect to see even more of starter Marvin Williams at power forward, with Spencer Hawes and perhaps Christian Wood also in line for increased run off the bench.

Hornets' Frank Kaminsky: Looks doubtful for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaminsky (foot) appears doubtful to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Bucks, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kaminsky has been showing improvement with his recovery from a right foot sprain and is no longer donning a protective boot, but it doesn't seem likely that he'll be ready to go for Wednesday. The Hornets will presumably want to see Kaminsky take part in a full practice before clearing him to play. Assuming the big man ends up sitting Wednesday, he'll turn his attention to getting ready for the weekend back-to-back set Friday against the Heat and Saturday against the Celtics.

Hornets' Cody Zeller: Set to play in opener
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Zeller (knee) will be available for Wednesday's season opener against the Bucks, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Just days earlier, it looked like Zeller wouldn't be ready to for the start of the regular season after missing all of preseason play, but with the big man returning to full-contact practice over the past three days, he's apparently made enough progress in his recovering from a bone bruise on his right knee. Barring a setback at Wednesday's morning shootaround, Zeller should be part of coach Steve Clifford's Opening Night rotation, though it's expected that he'll be held to an undisclosed minute restriction. Roy Hibbert will presumably get the start at center, but Zeller should challenge for those duties once he regains conditioning, and profiles as the better long-term fantasy option of the two.

Hornets' Brian Roberts: Expected back for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Roberts (hamstring) is expected to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Hornets, barring a setback, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

A hamstring injury has sidelined Roberts for the better part of the last two weeks, but coach Steve Clifford said Tuesday that Roberts is trending in the right direction. The team will evaluate him one final time at shootaround Wednesday, but at this point it appears the veteran will be available off the bench Wednesday night.
