    Terry Rozier was a late addition to the injury report and will ultimately miss Wednesday’s game against the Heat due to an illness.

    Rozier is coming off a night in which he got career-highs in field goals made, three-pointers made and points so it is unfortunate to have him miss time. Devonte’ Graham will be leaned on more heavily while Caleb Martin, Cody Martin and Jalen McDaniels will see additional opportunity. Joe Chealey, who has played in four games over his two-year career, could even see some minutes off the bench.

    The Hornets announced this morning that the team has signed guard Joe Chealey to a second 10-day contract.

    Chealey appeared in two games with the Hornets so far and has made 34 appearances with the Swarm this season averaging 11.3 points, 4.5 assists, and 3.2 rebounds in 28.3 minutes per game in the G League. With Devonte’ Graham nursing a left ankle he is expected to provide some point guard insurance.

    The Hornets will sign Joe Chealey to a 10-day contract.

    Chealey was with the Hornets last season and signed an Exhibit 10 with the team this offseason. He was one of the final cuts before opening night and his familiarity with the organization probably helped him out here. There's no need to watch Chealey in fantasy leagues.

    The Hornets have waived Joe Chealey and Josh Perkins.

    The Hornets are among the teams cutting down their roster as the regular season approaches. Chealey was with the organization last season but has been sidelined by a right ankle sprain lately, so perhaps he'll resurface when he gets healthy.

  • 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.

    Malik Monk (sore right toe) and Joe Chealey (sprained right ankle) were held out of Thursday's practice while Cody Martin (sprained right ankle) participated in the majority of practice.

    Monk is heading into a season in which he needs to prove that he was worth a lottery pick back in 2017. The Hornets are in desperate need of talented players after they lost All-Star Kemba Walker in the offseason. There is no guarantee that Monk plays himself into fantasy value but he will have plenty of opportunity if he is healthy. Chealey and Martin are not on the fantasy radar at this time but could carve out a role on this team that is completely without top-end talent.

    Malik Monk is dealing with a minor toe injury, but it is not considered to be serious.

    Monk should be fine soon. His teammates Cody Martin and Joe Chealey are also day-to-day with ankle sprains. Monk only played 17 minutes per game last season and will have to compete with Dwayne Bacon for minutes.

    The Hornets have signed Josh Perkins and Joe Chealey to Exhibit 10 deals.

    The Hornets still have a two-way contract left after neither Chealey nor Perkins received it. Both Chealey and Perkins will add to the Hornets backcourt depth but carry no fantasy value.

  • Joe Chealey
    PG, Charlotte Hornets

    Joe Chealey will sign for his second year with the Hornets but the details of the deal have yet to be released.

    It is unclear whether he will join the team on a two-way contract or an Exhibit 10 deal. Chealey originally signed with the Hornets on an Exhibit 10 deal last summer before having it upgraded to a two-way contract. Expect Chealey to play a significant portion of the season in the G-League. However, with the Hornets depleted of talent, there is opportunity for Chealey to play minutes for the big league squad.

    The Hornets have converted Joe Chealey’s Exhibit 10 deal into a Two-Way contract.

    Chealey went undrafted in 2018 after putting up 18.0 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists as a senior, leading Charleston to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 1999. He will spend most of the year in the G-League as the Hornets already have plenty of depth at point guard.

    The Hornets have signed guard Joe Chealey, according to Michael Scotto of The Athletic.

    Chealey averaged 18.0 points and 3.6 assists per game as a senior and led Charleston to the NCAA tournament in 2017-18. Chealey also played for the Hornets during Summer League. Details of the contract are not disclosed yet but there is a good chance it is a two-way deal or training camp invite. The Hornets have one two-way contract open to use still.
