Despite a previous report that Malik Monk (pelvic contusion) would be available to play on Friday, Rick Bonnell reported that he's in street clothes and is a "healthy scratch."
There was an official Hornets announcement that Monk would be available before the game, but apparently the coaching staff decided to hold off for precautionary measures. We'll have to wait at least one more game to see if Monk's strong shooting during Summer League carries over to real NBA games and if he can keep up with defensive schemes better than last year.
