    Malik Monk scored 24 points off the bench in Tuesday's loss to the Clippers, hitting 7-of-14 shots (4-of-7 3PTs, 6-of-6 FTs) with one rebound in 21 minutes.

    Monk's stat set isn't good and he's struggling to stay in a notable role. Watch this from the wire.

    Malik Monk (ankle) returned to the Hornets' bench after briefly heading to the locker room on Wednesday.

    He likely had it taped up and appears good to go. The Hornets and managers who recently picked him up dodged a bullet there. Let's just keep our fingers crossed that his ankle does not swell up overnight.

    Malik Monk limped off the court in Wednesday's tilt vs. the Mavs and headed to the locker room.

    The hits just keep stinging the Hornets. If Monk is unable to return, expect Devonte' Graham to see extended run and a little bit more of Tony Parker in this game.

  • Malik Monk - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk scored 21 points off the bench in Monday's win over the Magic, hitting 7-of-14 shots (including three treys) with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in 24 minutes.

    This line will get attention and the real story is the injury to Jeremy Lamb (hamstring), who we don't know much about at this time. Monk doesn't have a strong fantasy stat set and he's not that good at this stage in his career, so we're not high on picking him up outside of deeper leagues or points formats.

    Malik Monk (right foot soreness) left Friday’s game and limped to the locker room under his own strength.

    That makes two guys going down in this game (Mitchell Robinson) but considering Monk didn’t need assistance, we’re hoping it’s not too bad. Update: Monk is available to return for the second half.

  • Tony Parker - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Tony Parker scored 19 points (including a rare trey) and added four rebounds, three assists, two steals and a block in Friday’s win over the visiting Nuggets.

    It was a nice game for Parker but aside from some low-end scoring and dimes, he’s better served as a deep-league asset. Malik Monk added 16 points and three 3s but is still in a time-share with Miles Bridges and remains an undesirable fantasy option in standard leagues.

  • Malik Monk - G - Charlotte Hornets

    In order for Malik Monk to earn a consistent rotation spot, the Hornets are requesting that he focus on consistent defensive effort.

    Remember early in the year when Monk was taking minutes from Jeremy Lamb? Fun times. Monk has fallen out of the rotation here and there and has only been a bit part unless Charlotte is in dire need of scoring. He's just a deep-league 3-point specialist, but perhaps this wake-up call can help him get his young career back on track.

  • Malik Monk - G - Charlotte Hornets

    Malik Monk (right quad contusion) is available to play on Friday vs. the Jazz.

    That’s good news for Monk but for fantasy purposes he’s just a low-end play for some points and threes since Jeremy Lamb has been killing it and rookie Miles Bridges is also competing for minutes.

    Malik Monk (right quad contusion) is probable for Friday.

    Monk left Wednesday's game and was initially cleared to return but later ruled out at halftime. That looks like a precaution from Charlotte's training staff so you can feel good about plugging Monk into lineups tomorrow if you normally would.

    Malik Monk (quad contusion) will not return to their game against the Hawks on Wednesday.

    The injury does not sound too serious, considering he was originally expected to be available to return, this is likely the Hornets staff playing it safe with Monk.

    Malik Monk suffered a quad contusion on Wednesday, headed to the locker room and is available to return.

    Monk has been up and down and an injury will only serve to dampen his appeal. He's a shaky play even in deep leagues until he gets some consistent run.

    Malik Monk, fresh off a DNP-CD on Friday night, bounced back in a big way with 26 points (9-of-15 shooting) and seven 3-pointers in Sunday's loss to the Hawks.

    Monk was on fire in this one and led the Hornets in scoring while only playing 24 minutes. It should be a while before he falls out of the rotation again, though Monk's flimsy stat set and general inconsistencies make him hard to own outside of deeper formats. He's a viable 3-point stream but will struggle to hold much more appeal than that despite his explosive potential.

    Malik Monk missed all five of his shot attempts (4-of-4 FTs) for four points, five rebounds and two assists in 18 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over the Pistons.

    Monk might see a few more minutes if MKG misses time with his foot injury, but his stat set is weak and he's only a deep league asset.
