Hornets interim coach Stephen Silas is essentially removing rookies Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk from the rotation as Charlotte tries to get wins, per Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
“It’s not time to develop or gift minutes right now. It’s about winning, and my rotations are going to be short for a while until we get this thing back on track.” Neither rookie had much fantasy value even in the best of times but both should be applauded for their yeoman’s work early in the season, especially when the Hornets were incredibly shorthanded. This means a little extra time for Charlotte’s best players, who will be tasked with pulling this team back from the brink in the immediate future. Look for their fantasy production to spike a little bit.
