Nembhard closed Monday's 115-109 loss to the Hornets with two points (1-6 FG), two rebounds and six assists in 29 minutes.

In the previous four games with Tyrese Haliburton (knee) out, Nembhard was excellent. The rookie averaged 20 points on 16 field-goal attempts over those contests, but his performance Monday was a disappointment, as he took only six shots. However, Nembhard did help out with six assists to salvage one category for anyone streaming the guard. If Haliburton remains sidelined, Nembhard should be a bounce-back candidate.
