  • Hornets' Malik Monk: Scores 19 points in Saturday's loss

    Monk recorded 19 points (7-14 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, and one assist in 27 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 loss to the Lakers.

    Monk had suffered a right foot injury during Friday's game against the Knicks, which forced him to briefly leave the contest. However, he ultimately returned to action and wasn't listed on the injury report in advance of Saturday's matchup. Monk has reached double figures in scoring in three of the last six games, but he is still trying to recapture his early-season magic, when he scored at least 10 points in 10 of the first 12 games.

  • Hornets' Miles Bridges: Scores 17 points in Saturday's loss

    Bridges supplied 17 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, and two blocks in 28 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 loss to the Lakers.

    Bridges led the team in minutes, posted a career high scoring total, and swatted two blocks for the seventh time through 28 appearances, as the lopsided score resulted in coach James Borrego turning to some of his younger players. The only consistent thing about the role Bridges has held this year has been its inconsistency, as he barely reaches double-digit minutes on some nights and then earns 20-plus minutes on others.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Struggles badly in Saturday's loss

    Walker had four points (2-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt), three assists, and one rebound in 25 minutes during Saturday's 128-100 loss to the Lakers.

    Walker finished with a season low in scoring while matching his worst assist total as well. This was also just the second time through 29 appearances that Walker has failed to drain a three. Despite the dud, Walker is contributing career-high per-game averages across most categories. Moreover, with three days to rest up for Wednesday's matchup with the lowly Cavaliers, Walker will likely bounce back sooner rather than later.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Grabs second double-double

    Walker scored 16 points (6-20 FG, 4-13 3Pt) while adding 10 assists, seven rebounds and a steal in 41 minutes during Friday's 126-124 overtime loss to the Knicks.

    While he didn't supply his usual scoring output, Walker did make up for it with his second double-double of the season. The 28-year-old is averaging a career-high 6.4 assists per game already, but as defenses continue to focus on him as the Hornets' most consistent threat, that number could continue to rise.

  • Hornets' Marvin Williams: Ties season high in scoring

    Williams scored 20 points (7-12 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding five rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block in 37 minutes during Friday's 126-124 overtime loss to the Knicks.

    It's the third time Williams has dropped exactly 20 points, his best output so far this year. The veteran forward isn't typically a big scoring threat, but he's showing a little more consistency on that front lately, posting double-digit points in seven of his last 10 games while averaging 12.2 points a night over that stretch -- a figure he hasn't topped in a full season since 2008-09.

  • Hornets' Nicolas Batum: Season-best scoring in OT loss

    Batum scored 21 points (8-14 FG, 5-8 3Pt) while adding seven assists and six rebounds in 39 minutes during Friday's 126-124 overtime loss to the Knicks.

    The points and three-pointers were both season highs for the 30-year-old, and while Batum is capable of occasionally flashing his old multi-category form, his overall numbers continue to trend down for the Hornets -- he'd scored six points or less in five of the last six games coming into Friday.

  • Hornets' Cody Zeller: Big double-double in OT loss

    Zeller scored 21 points (9-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 13 rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in 37 minutes during Friday's 126-124 overtime loss to the Knicks.

    He tied Nic Batum for the team lead in scoring while also pacing the Hornets in boards, as Zeller recorded his first double-double of the season. He continues to have active hands on defense, grabbing multiple steals for the fourth time in the last five games, but the 26-year-old's contributions in other categories have been too inconsistent to make him a fantasy asset in most formats.

  • Hornets' Malik Monk: Available to return

    Monk suffered a right foot injury during Friday's game against the Knicks but will be available to return in the second half.

    Monk should be good to go for the second half of Friday's game if he's needed. It's possible he lands on the injury report ahead of Saturday's contest, especially since it's the second game of a back-to-back.

  • Hornets' Malik Monk: Limps to locker room

    Monk limped to the locker room during Friday's matchup against the Knicks, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    A leg injury appears to be hampering Monk. He should be considered questionable to return.

  • Hornets' Bismack Biyombo: Inactive again Friday

    Biyombo is inactive for Friday's game against New York, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.

    This doesn't come as a huge surprise, given Biyombo hasn't seen any action in Charlotte's previous three games. He's averaging 1.8 points and 1.8 rebounds over 10 contests this season.

  • Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Back at practice Thursday

    Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) took part in practice Thursday, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.

    Kidd-Gilchrist was held out of Wednesday's game due to a personal matter, but his presence at practice Thursday is an encouraging sign ahead of Friday's matchup with the Knicks. At this point, expect the forward to be back in the rotation, likely in a bench capacity.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Leads Hornets to win

    Walker scored a game-high 31 points (8-25 FG, 4-11 3Pt, 11-13 FT) while adding nine assists, eight rebounds, a steal and a block in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 108-107 win over the Pistons.

    He fell just a bit short of his third career triple-double, with his last coming back in April 2014. The 31 points was also Walker's best total since he exploded for 103 combined points over back-to-back games in mid-November, but he's topped 20 in each of his last three contests, and the streaky volume shooter appears to be heating up again.
