Mack will not be available Tuesday against the Cavs due to a personal matter. The nature of the absence is unclear, but Mack hasn't been a part of the regular rotation anyway.
Mack is listed as inactive for Friday's game against Washington. Mack hasn't played in 10 straight contests, so this update doesn't come as a shock. He's averaging 7.8 points, 3.3 assists and 1.9 rebounds over 55 games this season.
Mack had zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 FT), one assist, and one steal in 12 minutes during Monday's 99-90 loss to the Pacers. Mack was a massive disappointment in his Hornets debut. It will likely take him some time to gel with his new teammates and figure out the system, but this showing illustrates the fact that when healthy Tony Parker (back) remains Charlotte's best backup guard for fantasy purposes.
Mack will be available to make his Hornets debut Monday against the Pacers, freelance sports writer Mark Montieth reports. Mack hasn't had time to go through a formal practice with his new team, but he'll be cleared to play nonetheless after taking part in morning shootaround. The Hornets could look to Mack to fill in as their backup point guard Monday with Tony Parker (back) sidelined, but he'll likely drop to third on the depth chart once Parker is ready to play again.
Mack was claimed off waivers by the Hornets on Sunday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The Grizzlies shipped Mack to the Hawks on Thursday, with Atlanta immediately waiving him once the trade was finalized. The veteran, who is averaging 7.9 points, 3.4 assists, 1.9 rebounds and 0.9 triples in 22.7 minutes per game over 53 appearances this season, is expected to slot in as the Hornets' third-string point guard while also offering depth at the other backcourt spot. Assuming he's able to meet the Hornets in Indianapolis for shootaround Monday, he should be cleared to make his team debut later in the evening versus the Pacers.
