Kaminsky finished with five points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in five minutes during Tuesday's 113-89 loss to the Cavaliers.
Kaminsky managed season highs in scoring and rebounding, though of course that speaks to how far he has fallen on the team's depth chart down low. The five games Kaminsky has appeared in thus far have all been massive blowouts, and having earned just 27 minutes on the year, he can be left on waiver wires.
Kaminksy is inactive for Sunday's contest against Detroit, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.
It's not exactly clear as to why Kaminsky is inactive for the game against Detroit on Sunday but nevertheless, the Wisconsin product will be absent. Kaminsky is so far averaging 5.5 minutes per game this season.
Kaminsky did not play in Wednesday's loss to the Bucks.
Kaminsky averaged 23.2 minutes and appeared in 79 games a season ago, so it was a bit of a surprise to see him glued to the bench for the entirety of what was a close game. The Hornets started Cody Zeller (21 minutes) at center and went with Willy Hernangomez (12) as the backup, but they spent much of the game going small with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist or Marvin Williams serving as the nominal five. While Kaminsky also has experience playing power forward in the past, new coach James Borrego made it clear he views Kaminsky as a center, so for now he looks to be on the outside of the rotation looking in.
Kaminsky totaled 24 points (10-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, one assist and one block across 27 minutes during a 119-93 win over the Pacers on Tuesday.
Kaminsky matched his season high with a team-high 24 points in the team's regular season finale. He also grabbed seven rebounds, which marked his best total since late February. It was a relatively disappointing season from him, though, as Kaminsky saw his points and rebounds averages drop during his third season in the league.
Kaminsky scored 21 points (8-15 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2) to go along with four rebounds and one assist across 26 minutes during Friday's 137-100 win over the Magic.
Kaminsky finished second on the team in minutes played because of the lopsided scoreline, breaking the 20-point barrier for the first time in 12 games. Though the Hornets are cruising toward a lottery pick, Kaminsky's role has remained somewhat consistent. That is to say he remains a peripheral figure on many nights and is still yet to make his case as a useful fantasy asset.
