In an interview with Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer, Hornets coach Steve Clifford indicates that rookies Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon are not guaranteed to receive more minutes when games resume.
Monk and Bacon have played sparingly and Clifford believes that the Hornets are competing for a playoff spot and not looking towards rebuilding. This would keep both players from seeing any significant boosts in playing time until the team knows they are completely eliminated from postseason play. If you’re in a dynasty league, hang onto both players, but don’t expect them to add value to your rosters any time soon.
