Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Clears concussion protocol

Kidd-Gilchrist officially cleared concussion protocol and will be available for Tuesday's game against the Spurs.

The Hornets listed Kidd-Gilchrist as probable on their initial injury report released Monday, so his availability for the contest was fully expected. As Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer notes, however, Kidd-Gilchrist's clearance to play doesn't necessarily mean he'll be included in the rotation. Kidd-Gilchrist hasn't practiced in about a week since suffering the head injury, allowing young forwards Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon to pick up some extra run.
