  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Scores 13 as reserve

    McGowens finished Wednesday's 117-114 victory over the Wizards with 13 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, one block and one steal across 23 minutes.

    McGowens has had a relatively limited impact off the bench this season, but he topped 20 minutes of playing time for the second time this year during Wednesday's narrow win. He's now scored in double figures in two of his last five appearances and has averaged 6.6 points and 2.2 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per game during that time.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Emerges in loss

    McGowens registered 12 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal over 29 minutes during Tuesday's 111-105 loss to the Heat.

    McGowens was hampered by ankle sprains throughout training camp and early-season action, but Charlotte's injury woes opened the door for the second-year guard to contribute Tuesday. McGowens had combined for just seven points across 47 minutes in four prior appearances, so he'll look to carry his newfound momentum into Friday's game against Milwaukee.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Available Friday

    McGowens (ankle) is available for Friday's game against the Pistons.

    McGowens was questionable for Friday's matchup due to a sprained left ankle, but he'll be able to make his season debut against Detroit. He was dealing with the injury for a week and a half, so it's possible his playing time will be monitored Friday.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Questionable against Detroit

    McGowens (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game versus the Pistons.

    McGowens was deemed doubtful before being ruled out Wednesday, so his upgraded status is a good sign for his availability Friday. If McGowens is able to suit up, Cody Martin's (knee) absence could open up some playing time.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Re-rolls ankle

    McGowens (ankle) is out for the remainder of Sunday's preseason contest against Oklahoma City, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    McGowens rolled his left ankle in a workout at the end of September, and tweaked the same ankle Sunday. McGowens stepped on a teammates' foot and immediately signaled for help getting off the court. His availability for the start of the regular season on Oct. 25 could be in question.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Listed as probable

    McGowens (ankle) is probable for Tuesday's preseason opener against the Heat.

    McGowens has battled an ankle injury to start training camp, but it appears he's healthy enough to play. It's unclear how many minutes he'll get, but the 2022 second-round pick will have to make the most of his playing time, as he's fighting for a roster spot in a crowded backcourt.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Dealing with ankle sprain

    McGowens sprained his ankle in a workout last week, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    McGowens will be limited throughout the first week of training camp, which starts Tuesday. The 20-year-old appeared in 46 games for Charlotte last season, but he faces new competition for minutes from rookies Nick Smith and Amari Bailey.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Posts season-high 22 points

    McGowens accumulated 22 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Sunday's 106-95 win over the Cavaliers.

    As the season came to an end, McGowens got plenty of opportunities. He started the final six games of the year while averaging 30 minutes. In those six contests, McGowens averaged 14.7 points on 48.3 percent shooting. The rookie cleared the 20-point plateau for the first time in his career, as he tied with Mark Williams for the team high Sunday. McGowens will have to fight for a bigger role next season in the Hornets' rotation.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Racks up season-best effort Tuesday

    McGowens notched 20 points (7-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-6 FT), six rebounds and three assists across 36 minutes during Tuesday's 120-100 loss to the Raptors.

    McGowens hadn't tallied more than 12 points in a game prior to Tuesday's outburst, which came thanks to the vast majority of the team's regulars taking a seat. McGowens may continue to produce over the final two games of the regular season, but it shouldn't be viewed as indicative of things to come for the 2023-24 campaign.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Scores 11 points in spot start

    McGowens closed Tuesday's 137-134 win over Oklahoma City with 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists and two steals in 24 minutes.

    McGowens drew his second start of the season with Gordon Hayward (thumb), Kelly Oubre (shoulder), Terry Rozier (foot) and Dennis Smith (toe) all ruled out. The rookie second-round pick's 11 points were one shy of his career high, and he also tied his season high with two steals. When any of the aforementioned injured players return, McGowens' playing time will presumably take a major hit, but until then, the Nebraska product should be on fantasy radars.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Enters starting lineup

    McGowens will enter the starting lineup Tuesday against the Thunder.

    Gordon Hayward is getting the night off due to a thumb injury. McGowens has really struggled shooting the ball in recent games, and he hasn't scored in double digits since Feb. 15.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Ties season high with six dimes

    McGowens notched eight points (2-5 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), one rebound, six assists and one block across 25 minutes during Thursday's 115-96 loss to the Pelicans.

    With Terry Rozier (foot), Kelly Oubre (shoulder) and Dennis Smith (illness) all leaving the contest early, McGowens saw an increased role and tied his season high with six assists. When he's played at least 24 minutes (six times), the rookie second-round pick has averaged 8.0 points, 2.8 assists and 2.5 rebounds per game, and he could see a similar role moving forward if Rozier and Oubre are forced to miss extended time.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Logs 20 minutes in blowout loss

    McGowens ended with nine points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), one rebound, two assists, one block and one steal over 20 minutes during Friday's 121-82 loss to the 76ers.

    McGowens played at least 20 minutes for just the second time in the past 12 games, flashing some upside in the process. While it is unclear just where he fits in the Hornets' rotation beyond this season, he has shown enough to convince the coaching staff he can compete with the best on a nightly basis. While he isn't a player to add right now, fantasy managers should keep an eye on his playing time just in case the Hornets opt to hand him the keys at some point down the stretch.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Increased role Sunday

    McGowens racked up five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two rebounds over 20 minutes during Sunday's 102-86 loss to the Nets.

    McGowens logged 20 minutes in the loss, an indication that his role is continuing to develop. While his production is yet to resemble anything close to 12-team value, managers in deeper formats will want to keep an eye on things moving forward. Given the Hornets have signed him to a four-year deal, they are likely going to want to get a look at him down the stretch.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Signs standard NBA deal

    The Hornets converted McGowens' two-way contract into a standard three-year NBA deal Sunday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    McGowens' contract keeps him on the books through 2024-25 and includes a team option for 2025-26. The second-round rookie out of Nebraska has averaged only 4.1 points, 1.7 assists and 1.0 assists in 14.7 minutes per game while shooting 37.9 percent from the field in 26 appearances for the NBA team this season, but the Hornets saw enough from him to justify moving him to the 15-man roster.
