Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s status for the season opener is still in doubt due to personal reasons.
With Nicolas Batum out as well the Hornets are going to have to get a little creative with their lineups. Coach Steve Clifford may start Frank Kaminsky and slide Marvin Williams into the three slot and if Kidd-Gilchrist were to miss any time it would free up for minutes for both Malik Monk and Jeremy Lamb. Both of those players are solid adds for some short term value with Lamb being the better add for long term value.
