  • Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Out Monday

    Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) will not play Monday against Boston.

    Kidd-Gilchrist will sit out for the third straight game as he continues to nurse a sprained right ankle. The former No. 2 pick is a versatile defender and productive rebounder, but his lack of scoring prowess prevents him from being relevant in most fantasy leagues.

  • Hornets' Jeremy Lamb: Double-double in OT loss

    Lamb scored 20 points (6-18 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 7-7 FT) while adding 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal in 40 minutes during Saturday's 122-119 overtime loss to the 76ers.

    While most of the Hornets were spectators to Kemba Walker's huge 60-point performance, Lamb actually stepped up and gave the Charlotte star a little support, scoring 20-plus points for the second straight game and recording his first double-double of the season. The 26-year-old is averaging modest career highs in points (13.4), boards (4.9), steals (1.3) and made three-pointers (1.4) through 15 games, giving him solid fantasy value in deeper formats, and the Hornets' lack of an established secondary option on offense opens the door for Lamb to continue improving on those numbers as the season progresses.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Pours in career-high 60 in OT loss

    Walker scored 60 points (21-34 FG, 6-14 3Pt, 12-12 FT) while adding seven rebounds, four assists and four steals in 45 minutes during Saturday's 122-119 overtime loss to the 76ers.

    He also committed nine turnovers, but that's bound to happen when you handle the ball that much. Not only was Walker's scoring explosion the best of his career and the highest output by any NBA player this season, topping Klay Thompson's 52, it also set a new league record for biggest game-over-game improvement after he stumbled to seven points in Tuesday's loss to the Cavs.

  • Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Out Saturday

    Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) was absent at practice Friday and is out Saturday, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports.

    Kidd-Gilchrist missed practice for the second straight day and will be also missing his second consecutive contest Saturday against the 76ers because of a lingering sprained right ankle. Teammates Marvin Williams and Miles Bridges will likely fill in for the absent Kidd-Gilchrist. Currently, Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 8.6 points and 5.9 rebounds over 13 games this year.

  • Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Sits out practice Thursday

    Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) did not practice Thursday, Hornets reporter Rick Bonnell reports.

    Kidd-Gilchrist missed Tuesday's game against Cleveland, and he's not trending in the right direction ahead of Saturday's matchup with the 76ers. Look for a more definitive update after Friday's practice, but as of now it would be a surprise if Kidd-Gilchrist plays.

  • Hornets' Frank Kaminsky: Scores five points in five minutes

    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.

  • Hornets' Dwayne Bacon: Plays 16 minutes in Tuesday's loss

    Bacon had five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and three rebounds in 16 minutes during Tuesday's 113-89 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Bacon has earned double-digit minutes twice in the last three games, though that was sandwiched by a tilt where he saw none. Thus far his best showing of the season came during last Friday's one-point overtime loss to the 76ers, a game in which Bacon fouled out in a season-high 23 minutes but contributed a season-high 15 points (5-7 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go with one board, one dime, and one steal. Bacon and the Hornets have a few days to rest, recover, and prepare for Saturday's matchup with the 76ers.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Delivers dud in Tuesday's loss

    Walker had seven points (2-16 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-5 FT), six assists, four rebounds, two steals, and one block in 36 minutes during Tuesday's 113-89 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Walker was due for a dismal showing, as he has been one of the most statistically dominant players over the first month of the season. Prior to this game, Walker had failed to reach 20 points in two of 13 tilts, and even those were efficient 19 and 18-point efforts on 14 and 12 field-goal attempts, respectively. Walker will have a few days off before Saturday's home matchup with a 76ers team that he has already posted big numbers (albeit inefficiently) against twice this year, but that also just acquired Jimmy Butler.

  • Hornets' Jeremy Lamb: Scores season-high 22 points in Tuesday's loss

    Lamb totaled 22 points (8-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, three steals, and two assists in 32 minutes during Tuesday's 113-89 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Lamb finished with a season high scoring total while matching his season high in steals. He has reached double figures in scoring in all but two of the 14 games thus far this season, including six straight to begin November. It's still early, but Lamb could certainly be in for a career year.

  • Hornets' Dwayne Bacon: Could see more action Tuesday

    Bacon is expected to see an uptick in playing time Tuesday against the Cavaliers, Spencer Davies of BBall Insiders reports.

    Bacon has appeared in only six games so far this season, averaging 5.2 points across 8.5 minutes. Coach James Borrego stated that Bacon is going to get more playing time in Cleveland with Miles Bridges seeing more time at power forward.

  • Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Ruled out for Tuesday

    Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers.

    Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a right ankle sprain during Sunday's win over the Pistons, and he's set to miss at least one game as a result of the injury. While the severity of the issue remains unclear, it's worth noting that the 25-year-old was seen in a walking boot following Sunday's win, according to Rod Boone of The Athletic. Look for Miles Bridges to see some extra run in place of Kidd-Gilchrist, who should be tentatively considered questionable for Saturday's game against the 76ers.

  • Hornets' Tony Parker: Ties season high with 24 points

    Parker scored 24 points (11-18 FG, 2-2 3Pt) while adding four assists and three rebounds in 28 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 113-103 win over the Pistons.

    The long-time Spur and future Hall of Famer has been able to play useful minutes for the Hornets this season, even at 36 years old. Parker gives a fairly young Charlotte second unit some veteran savvy, but his court time and production won't be consistent enough to give him real fantasy value in most fantasy formats.

  • Hornets' Kemba Walker: Scores 24 in win over Pistons

    Walker scored 24 points (9-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT) while adding eight assists and three rebounds in 36 minutes during Sunday's 113-103 win over the Pistons.

    He's now dropped 20 or more points in 11 of 13 games to begin the season, putting Walker second in the NBA in scoring average behind Steph Curry. Given that no one else on the Hornets is averaging even half what Walker is producing each night, it seems fair to say his usage will remain sky high as the season progresses. Don't expect a major regression from the 28-year-old despite his career-best pace.

  • Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Will not return Sunday

    Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a sprained right ankle in Sunday's game against the Pistons and will not return.

    Kidd-Gilchrist suffered the injury in the second quarter of Sunday's game. It's uncertain how serious the injury is. His next opportunity to play is Tuesday against Cleveland, and he should be considered questionable for that game.
