Kidd-Gilchrist underwent surgery Tuesday to address a strained groin, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. The goal of the procedure, which took place in Philadelphia, was to put an end to the on-and-off groin issues Kidd-Gilchrist has experienced over the last few years. The Kentucky product is expected to make a full recovery and be back to 100 percent by the time training camp begins in the fall.
Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) is available Wednesday against the Magic, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. A personal issue has prevented the forward from appearing in the past two games, but he'll make his return for Wednesday's crucial regular-season finale. Prior to leaving the team briefly, he had drawn two straight starts. It's unclear if he'll be back in the lineup Wednesday.
Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) will not play Tuesday against the Cavs. Kidd-Gilchrist remains away from the team while tending to a personal matter, and Tuesday will mark his second straight absence. Expect Miles Bridges and Nic Batum to pick up most of the slack in the frontcourt.
Kidd-Gilchrist will not play Sunday against the Pistons due to a personal issue. The nature of Kidd-Gilchrist's absence is unknown, but the Hornets will have to find a replacement at power forward Sunday. Kidd-Gilchrist, himself, is far from a fantasy consideration, but his absence could equate to more minutes for Frank Kaminsky, Miles Bridges or Nic Batum.
Kidd-Gilchrist had just five points, five rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 115-109 victory over New Orleans. Kidd-Gilchrist replaced Marvin Williams (foot) in the starting lineup Wednesday but came away with very little in terms of production. He has been one of the more disappointing players this season and has basically fallen off the radar in all competitive formats. There is no word on when Williams might return but even as a starter, Kidd-Gilchrist appears to be a non-factor.
