Hornets' Dwayne Bacon: Set for another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bacon will start at small forward Monday against the Bucks, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Despite his standing as a rookie second-round pick, Bacon hasn't looked out of place in Charlotte's starting lineup for the first two games of the season, averaging 7.0 points and 6.5 rebounds while shooting 50 percent from the field and 57.1 percent from distance in 19.5 minutes per game. It's expected that Bacon will lose out on his starting role on the wing once Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) rejoins the team, but he should at least maintain a decent-sized role with the second unit if his performance warrants it.

Hornets' Michael Carter-Williams: Will sit again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Carter-Williams (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bucks, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Carter-Williams will remain in street clothes for a matchup with his former team while he continues to await clearance for full-contact, full-court practices. It's unclear when Carter-Williams might get the green light to increase his activity, so until that happens, it will be difficult to forecast when his season debut might come. Rookie Malik Monk has been serving as the main backup to starting point guard Kemba Walker to begin the season.

Hornets' Cody Zeller: Out Monday vs. Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Zeller (knee) will sit out Monday's matchup with the Bucks, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Zeller will be missing a second straight game after also being held out of Friday's contest against the Hawks. He's reportedly dealing with a bone bruise and he hasn't been given any sort of timetable for a return, so continue to consider him day-to-day moving forward. With Zeller out once again, look for both Frank Kaminsky and Johnny O'Bryant to pick up some additional run off the bench.

Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Ruled out Monday vs. Bucks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Bucks, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist has missed the first two games of the season for a personal matter and despite returning to practice Saturday, he still isn't going to be ready to play on Monday. With Kidd-Gilchrist out yet again, look for Dwayne Bacon to pick up a third straight start. Bacon has averaged 7.0 points, 6.5 rebounds and 1.0 assist over 20.0 minutes in relief thus far. Kidd-Gilchrist's next opportunity to take the floor will be Wednesday against the Nuggets.

Hornets' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist: Back at practice Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) returned to practice Saturday.

The forward missed the first two games of the season while tending to a personal situation, but his return to practice Saturday is certainly a positive sign. Expect Kidd-Gilchrist to travel with the team to Milwaukee for Monday's game, with all signs pointing to him making his season debut. Assuming Kidd-Gilchrist does, indeed, play, he'd likely unseat Dwayne Bacon in the starting lineup, meaning Marvin Williams would shift down to small forward.
