• Malik Monk
    SG, Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk (right toe soreness) has been ruled out against the Celtics on Sunday.

    Monk’s injury is not considered serious but is something he’s been dealing with for almost a week now. He will be given a legit chance this season after underwhelming in 17.9 minutes per game last year, scoring 8.9 points and 1.5 triples but shooting only 38.7 percent from the field. With increased minutes and efficiency, he might be on the radar as a three-point specialist in standard leagues. Joe Chealey (right ankle sprain) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) will also be held out of Sunday’s contest.
