  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (concussion protocol) will miss Thursday's game vs. The Wolves.

    Kidd-Gilchrist hasn't been getting much run lately, but his absence will open up a few additional minutes for Miles Bridges and Dwayne Bacon, who are worth a look as streamers.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist left Tuesday's game to be evaluated for a concussion in the third quarter and did not return.

    Kidd-Gilchrist's night wrapped with six points, six rebounds and a 3-pointer in nine minutes. Dwayne Bacon saw more run than usual off the bench but that might've had more to do with Kemba Walker's foul trouble than MKG's absence. Miles Bridges will need to do more heavy lifting if Kidd-Gilchrist misses time.

  • Cody Zeller - F/C - Charlotte Hornets

    Cody Zeller (left knee strain) will not play on Friday vs. the Wizards while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee soreness) is available.

    Frank Kaminsky remains the prime beneficiary although Willy Hernangomez, who started the last game Zeller missed, could be a nice play in DFS.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee strain) is probable for Friday's game against the Wizards.

    It looks like MKG will look to resume his role behind Marvin Williams off the bench. MKG can be ignored in fantasy.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee strain) has been ruled out against the Rockets on Monday.

    MKG was already doubtful for this one, but it does not have many fantasy implications. Malik Monk may finally see some minutes in this game.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee strain) is being listed as doubtful vs. the Rockets on Monday.

    He was originally listed as probable yesterday so it's obviously not good that he was downgraded all the way to doubtful in only a day. Regardless, he's only played in one of his last five games and he's been outside of the top-300 over the past month. He belongs on the wire.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee strain) is probable for Monday's matchup vs. the Rockets.

    MKG has played in only one of his last five games and even then he only played seven minutes. He's outside of the top-300 over the past month and can be left on waiver wires everywhere.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (left knee sprain) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Bucks.

    Feel free to ignore him in most formats since his role has significantly decreased this season and should only warrant hard looks on deep leagues.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd Gilchrist (left knee sprain) is probable to play against the Bucks on Saturday.

    Kidd-Gilchrist left Friday's game with a knee sprain after only two points in seven minutes after picking up three straight DNP-CD's prior to yesterday's game. He can be ignored in all formats as his role with the Hornets has diminished a considerable amount this season.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist wound up at the bottom of a pile of bodies and walked off the court gingerly as he went to the locker room with a left knee strain during Friday’s game vs. the Wizards.

    He was replaced by Dwayne Bacon and is doubtful to return, leaving the game with two points and a block in seven minutes.

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist logged a DNP-CD in Friday's win against the Nets.

    Frank Kaminsky logged 24 minutes in this one and they were at the expense of MKG. Kidd-Gilchrist hasn't been doing much lately and he can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Nicolas Batum - G/F - Charlotte Hornets

    Nic Batum had an unassuming but very nice line on Friday with seven points, one 3, 10 boards, three dimes, two steals, two blocks and one turnover in a home win over the Grizzlies.

    Batum has been playing pretty well over the last few weeks with top-60 value in 9-cat. He’s had just top-90 value over the last two months so his value will regress some when his shooting (50.9 percent over the last two weeks) corrects. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist added 10 points, a steal and a block in the win.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Michael Kidd-Gilchrist dropped a season-high 16 points (6-of-11 shooting) with seven rebounds, two assists and two steals in 26 minutes off the Hornets bench on Friday.

    This was MKG's most productive game all season and he's been a top-200 value in 9-cat, so we'd like to see him repeat this feat at least a couple of times before we recommend him in 14-team leagues or shallower.

  • Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - F - Charlotte Hornets

    Micheal Kidd-Gilchrist scored 11 points off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Kings, hitting 5-of-11 shots (including a three) with seven rebounds and three blocks in 26 minutes.

    Barring a bunch of injuries that force the Hornets to lean into MKG, these games are going to be far and few between. There's no real fantasy value in most formats unless he can do it again and again.
