Carey was assigned to the G League on Sunday. Though the Hornets recalled Carey on Nov. 12, he has no playing time since their Oct. 24 game at Brooklyn. The second-year big man had some chances to shine as a rookie, but for now he can be ignored in most fantasy leagues.
Carey was recalled from the G League by the Hornets on Friday. Carey made two appearances for the Swarm in the G League and averaged 13.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 21.3 minutes. He has one appearance for Charlotte this season and will rejoin the NBA club Friday.
Carey totaled 15 points (7-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 19 minutes during Saturday's 97-94 loss to the Birmingham Squadron. Despite going 0-for-3 from three, Carey was still efficient from the field Saturday. The 6-foot-9 center was able to score a team-high 15 points in just 19 minutes of action. Through two games, he is averaging 13.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game.
The Hornets recalled Carey from the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Sunday. Though he'll rejoin the Hornets ahead of their game Sunday against the Trail Blazers, Carey isn't a lock to dress for the contest. All of Mason Plumlee, P.J. Washington, Nick Richards and Kai Jones appear to be ahead of Carey in the pecking order at center.
Carey was assigned to the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Tuesday. The move is unlikely to affect the Hornets' rotation, as Carey has received just a single NBA minute in the team's first four games. The 20-year-old will get the chance to develop with some regular playing time in Greensboro.
