Top Hornets News

  • Hornets' Mason Plumlee: Another rough night Monday

    Plumlee posted four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 FT), four rebounds and five assists over 27 minutes during Monday's 140-105 loss to the Celtics.

    Plumlee was unable to have an impact in the loss, continuing what has been a poor few games. He has now scored in double-digits just once in the past five games, adding very little in terms of defensive production. With that said, his role appears relatively secure for now, making him a backend 12-team asset, albeit one with limited upside.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Season-best performance Monday

    Maledon notched 11 points (4-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, eight assists and three steals in 39 minutes during Monday's 140-105 loss to the Celtics.

    Maledon logged a whopping 39 minutes in the loss, putting up season-high numbers across the board, bar the scoring. It really is a case of the last man standing in Charlotte right now, with Maledon taking full advantage. As long as the Hornets are without their backcourt, Maledon makes for a streaming option in competitive leagues. However, just be aware that this opportunity could end as soon as Friday when they face off against the Wizards.

  • Hornets' Jalen McDaniels: Top scorer in heavy loss Monday

    McDaniels registered 24 points (9-12 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and two assists across 30 minutes during Monday's 140-105 loss to the Celtics.

    McDaniels had things going offensively Monday, popping off for a season-high 24 points. With Gordon Hayward (shoulder) set to miss an extended period of time, McDaniels figures to soak up some additional playing time, even when LaMelo Ball (ankle) and Terry Rozier (illness) return. He obviously won't score the ball this well on most nights but given the opportunity, he should at least be considered a viable option in most formats.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Starting Monday

    Maledon is starting Monday's contest against the Celtics, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.

    With LaMelo Ball (ankle), Terry Rozier (illness) and Dennis Smith (ankle) all out with injuries, Maledon has entered Charlotte's starting lineup Monday. This will mark Maledon's first start with the Hornets. The 21-year-old guard is averaging 5.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assist across 15.3 minutes per game over his first 18 showings this season.

  • Hornets' Terry Rozier: Out Monday

    Rozier (illness) is out for Monday's contest against Boston.

    After initially being deemed probable, Rozier is now out for Monday's matchup. Theo Maledon and James Bouknight figure to take on additional playmaking opportunities with the likes of Rozier, LaMelo Ball (ankle) and Dennis Smith (ankle) all on the sidelines. Rozier's next chance to return to Charlotte's lineup comes Friday against the Wizards.

  • Hornets' Terry Rozier: Probable against Boston

    Rozier is probable for Monday's game against the Celtics due to an illness.

    Rozier was a late addition to Monday's injury report, but it appears likely that he'll be able to play through his illness. Over his last four appearances, he's averaged 20.0 points, 6.0 assists and 4.5 rebounds in 41.3 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Heading to Greensboro

    Williams was assigned to the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Sunday.

    Williams has made just three appearances for the Hornets this season and hasn't played in an NBA game since Oct. 28, when he registered seven points across seven minutes in a loss at Orlando. The former Duke standout should see far more playing time with Greensboro.

  • Hornets' JT Thor: Assigned to G League

    Thor was assigned to the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Sunday.

    Thor hasn't seen time in an NBA game since logging three minutes in a loss against the Pacers on Nov. 16, and even when he's been available, he's failed to make an impact. He should see more playing time with Greensboro.

  • Hornets' Dennis Smith: Still out

    Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against Boston, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Smith is still sporting a walking boot and will miss a second straight game due to an ankle injury. LaMelo Ball (ankle) also remains out, so Terry Rozier, Theo Maledon, James Bouknight and Bryce McGowens are all candidates for increased roles.

  • Hornets' LaMelo Ball: Won't play Monday

    Ball (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup against Boston, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Ball will miss a fifth straight game after aggravating an ankle injury that cost him the first month of the season. Dennis Smith (ankle) also remains out, so Theo Maledon, Terry Rozier, James Bouknight and Bryce McGowens are all candidates for increased roles.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Strong scoring off bench

    Maledon had 14 points (4-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes during Friday's 110-108 win over Minnesota.

    Maledon scored in double digits for just the third time in 18 games this season, and he did so Friday in an efficient fashion. He also recorded a season-high seven boards in the win. Maledon has shown that he's capable of the occasional scoring outburst, but he's averaging only 5.1 points, 2.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists so far this season.

  • Hornets' P.J. Washington: Back in double figures

    Washington amassed 16 points (6-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and one block over 20 minutes during Friday's 110-108 victory over the Timberwolves.

    Washington had a decent shooting night and swatted away a shot for the second time in three games. He's scored in double figures in each of his last six contests, averaging 19.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 34.3 minutes over that stretch.

  • Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Leads Charlotte in scoring

    Oubre ended Friday's 110-108 victory over the Timberwolves with 28 points (10-21 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 5-8 FT), six rebounds, two assists and three steals over 34 minutes.

    Oubre nearly knocked down half of his shots (47.6 percent) and tied his top mark on the season with three steals. He's scored 20-plus points in three of his last four matchups and continues to add value across the board for fantasy managers.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Out indefinitely

    Hayward will be sidelined for the foreseeable future due to a fractured left shoulder, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Hayward sat out Friday's contest due to what was perceived to be a contusion in his left shoulder, however, it was determined to be a fracture. Jalen McDaniels received the spot start Friday and should continue to start in Hayward's absence. McDaniels should be scooped up in any league he is still available in.

  • Hornets' Kai Jones: Gaining foothold in rotation

    Jones tallied nine points (3-5 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds and one block across 28 minutes in Friday's 110-108 win over the Timberwolves.

    Heading into Friday's contest, Jones had moved into a small role in the rotation as the primary backup at power forward to P.J. Washington. Jones played seven or eight minutes in each of the previous three games, but he saw his playing time tick up dramatically Friday while Washington found himself in foul trouble. The increase in minutes had a big hand in Jones producing his best line of the season, but this type of performance shouldn't be viewed as the norm for the second-year big man. He's likely to see his minutes dip back into the 10-to-15 range Monday in Boston if Washington avoids foul trouble and if Gordon Hayward (shoulder) is available to play.

  • Hornets' Jalen McDaniels: Will start Friday

    Hornets coach Steve Clifford said McDaniels will be in the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Sam Perley of the Hornets' official site reports.

    McDaniels will start Friday with Gordon Hayward (shoulder) out. McDaniels is averaging 9.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.1 steals in 25.3 minutes across 19 games this season.

  • Hornets' Gordon Hayward: Downgraded to out

    Hayward (shoulder) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Hayward was initially considered questionable for the contest, but it appears the veteran forward will now miss at least one game as he deals with a left shoulder contusion. As a result, Jalen McDaniels will get the start. Hayward's next opportunity to return will arrive Monday against his former team, the Celtics.
