Macura (ankle) came off the bench for the G League's Greensboro Swarm in their 139-125 win over the Capital City Go-Go on Tuesday, producing 12 points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 14 minutes.
Macura played a more limited role than usual for the affiliate in what marked his first appearance since Jan. 26 while he worked back from an ankle injury. He should see his minutes expand in the Swarm's games to come but is unlikely to earn a rotation role at the NBA level at any point in 2018-19.
Macura (ankle) did not play in Tuesday's game against the Drive.
The two-way player has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, but the severity remains unknown. Joe Chealey has thrived in his absence, posting consecutive 20-plus point outings.
Macura (ankle) did not play in Tuesday's contest against the BayHawks.
It's unclear how severe the ankle injury might be, but given the Hornets have yet to issue a statement regarding the status of their two-way player, it's fair to speculate it's not overtly serious.
Macura totaled 30 points (13-21 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-4 FT), six rebounds, three assists and six steals in 41 minutes Saturday against Delaware.
Macura shot an impressive 61.9 percent from the field and contributed across the board in a 111-105 comeback victory. The former Musketeer continues to impress in the G League this season, as he's averaging 15.1 points along with 3.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.6 steals through 22 contests (21 starts).
Macura was assigned to the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Monday.
Macura, one of the Hornets' two two-way players, received his first taste of NBA action over the past week and a half while Jeremy Lamb tended to a hamstring injury. The rookie out of Xavier made only one appearance during his stint with the parent club, producing four points, two rebounds and two assists in a 14-minute outing Jan. 2 against Dallas. With Lamb now healthy, Macura wasn't needed for further insurance on the wing.
Macura tallied four points (2-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists across 14 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Hornets' 122-84 loss to the Mavericks.
Called up from the G League's Greensboro Swarm earlier in the day, Macura saw his first NBA action with the Mavericks turning the contest into a runaway victory right from the opening tip. Macura didn't shoot particularly well in garbage time and should be excluded from the rotation in more competitive contests.
Macura has been recalled from the G League and will be in uniform for Wednesday's matchup against the Mavericks.
Macura went unselected out of Xavier during the 2018 Draft, and he's spent the whole season in the G League thus far. However, with the Hornets dealing with some injuries, he'll be in uniform if needed for the Hornets' contest.
Macura (lower leg) scored 31 points to go along with four rebounds, one assist and one steal in Tuesday's 129-118 loss to Long Island.
Macura finally saw a full complement of minutes after working through a lower leg injury the previous three contests. When healthy, the forward is one of the most explosive scorers in the league, with Tuesday's showing an obvious example of his talents. The two-way player hasn't seen much time with the Hornets this season, but that could change if the team loses any of its depth at the wing.
Macura did not play in Wednesday's game due to a lower leg injury.
The Swarm will have games both Friday and Saturday, so there's a possibility the guard will see the court before the end of the weekend.
