Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Minimal usage in overtime loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kidd-Gilchrist tallied just two points (1-3 FG) along with six rebounds and two assists over 21 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime loss to the Clippers.

MKG typically doesn't offer much on the scoreboard but makes up for it with above-average work on the glass. However, he was quiet across the board Sunday, taking his his second-lowest amount of shot attempts on the season and equaling his least amount of rebounds in 10 February contests as well. Kidd-Gilchrist also saw his fewest amount of minutes since Jan. 28 due to the fact he fouled out, which naturally played a part in the overall downturn. The disappointing effort appears to be an outlier in many respects, one that the 23-year-old will try to bounce back from in Tuesday's tilt versus the Lakers.

Hornets' Jeremy Lamb: Leads bench with 19 points in Sunday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lamb tallied 19 points (5-10 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-8 FT), six rebounds and two assists over 37 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime loss to the Clippers.

Lamb saw the most minutes of any bench player by far and parlayed the opportunity into his first double-digit scoring effort in the last four games. The fifth-year guard and fellow reserve Marco Belinelli typically share playing time off the bench a lot more evenly, but Hornets coach Steve Clifford stuck with the hot hand Sunday, as Lamb outpaced his teammate by 23 minutes overall. While the 24-year-old's performance was certainly encouraging, it's worth noting that his minutes were a season high, providing him with an opportunity to generate his second-best scoring total of the campaign.

Hornets' Frank Kaminsky: Another solid outing before fouling out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kaminsky registered 16 points (5-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds and four assists over 28 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime loss to the Clippers.

Kaminsky continues to draw starts for the sidelined Cody Zeller (quad) and parlay the opportunities into productive outings. The ref's whistle eventually got the best of him Sunday, with Kaminsky fouling out after 28 minutes on the floor. However, the second-year big man did manage his sixth straight double-digit scoring effort before departing, and is now sporting a 22.4 percent usage rate since Zeller's first missed game on Jan. 25. Kaminsky's deft touch from long distance adds an extra dimension to his game that goes beyond that of a typical big man, enhancing his overall value. Factoring in Sunday's production, he's attempted an average of 6.3 shots from behind the arc in 10 February contests and has drained them at a 36.5 percent clip.

Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Catches fire from long range Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Batum supplied 31 points (9-18 FG, 8-13 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one block over 43 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime loss to the Clippers.

Both Batum and backcourt mate Kemba Walker were in the proverbial zone from long range, and the former's hot hand led to a season-high scoring total. The eight made threes also served as a personal best on the campaign for Batum, and he managed at least a 50 percent success rate from the floor for the fourth time in 10 February games. While the scoring total was a pleasant surprise for fantasy owners, it's notable that the nine-year veteran has only eclipsed the 20-point mark on three occasions since the calendar flipped to 2017. However, Batum retains considerable value for his ability to usually make steady and solid contributions in virtually every category on the stat sheet.

Hornets' Kemba Walker: Drains team-high 34 in overtime loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Walker generated 34 points (11-19 FG, 6-10 3Pt, 6-8 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal over 43 minutes in Sunday's 124-121 overtime loss to the Clippers.

Walker was key to the Hornets forcing overtime, hitting one of his six treys with 48.2 seconds remaining with Charlotte down by five and then draining two clutch free throws with 11.9 seconds remaining to tie the game at 113. The All-Star point guard now has 34 points in two of his last three games and has been hot from long range as of late, notching multiple threes in four of the last five contests.
