Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist underwent successful surgery Tuesday on the torn labrum in his right shoulder.

The normal recovery time for such an injury is six months, so expect Kidd-Gilchrist to be sidelined till at least the beginning of April.

Considering the playoffs start in mid-April, he very well could miss the entire season. With Kidd-Gilchrist on the long road to recovery, Nicolas Batum may be forced to move over to small forward, which would then open up opportunities for Jeremy Lamb and Jeremy Lin at shooting guard.

Hornets F Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) to have surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his right shoulder Tuesday.

That surgery will likely end his 2015-16 season and force the Hornets to find a new starting small forward. Nicolas Batum could see additional minutes at the small forward spot, however Jeremy Lamb and Marvin Williams could see time there as well if Charlotte chooses to use Batum as a small-ball power forward.

Hornets sign G Damien Wilkins to one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Guard Damien Wilkins reached agreement on a one-year contract with the Charlotte Hornets on Monday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

With Michael Kidd-Gilchrist slated to miss the remainder of the regular season with a torn labrum in his right shoulder, the Hornets elected to bring in Wilkins for a look during training camp. Considering he last played in the NBA in 2012-13 as a member of the 76ers, the 35-year-old is no lock to make the Hornets' opening night roster.

Report: Hornets G Michael Kidd-Gilchrist sidelined six months
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will be out for six months after right shoulder surgery, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo reports.

While original reports were that Kidd-Gilchrist was going to miss several weeks, the need for surgery has extended that time to half a year. With that time frame, Kidd-Gilchrist likely won't be set to return until April, giving him essentially no value through the regular season.

Report: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist out several weeks with dislocated shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a dislocated right shoulder in Saturday's preseason win over the Orlando Magic and is expected to miss several weeks, the Charlotte Observer reports.

The injury occurred when Kidd-Gilchrist was sent flying hard to the floor after a foul by the Magic's Tobias Harris . He remained in Orlando overnight for X-rays on the shoulder, which came back negative but revealed a dislocation. He'll be officially reevaluated Monday, but a dislocated shoulder typically requires 3-12 weeks of recovery time, making it quite likely that Kidd-Gilchrist misses the Oct. 28 regular-season opener in Miami.

It's not clear how much time beyond that Kidd-Gilchrist will be sidelined, but it should be clarified as he progresses from the injury. In Kidd-Gilchrist's absence, the Hornets could opt to move Nicolas Batum over from shooting guard to small forward, which may pave the way for Jeremy Lin , Jeremy Lamb , P.J. Hairston , or Troy Daniels to temporarily ascend to the starting lineup.
