Top Hornets News

  • Hornets' Seth Curry: Probable for Tuesday

    Curry (hip) is probable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee.

    Curry was sidelined for Sunday's win over Portland due to right hip soreness, but he appears on track to return to action Tuesday. In five appearances for the Hornets since being acquired from the Mavericks at the trade deadline, Curry is averaging 9.2 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 19.8 minutes per contest.

  • Hornets' LaMelo Ball: Won't play Tuesday

    Ball (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    Despite returning to practice last week, Ball will miss a 15th straight game. The Hornets aren't a contender this season, so they'll presumably take a cautious approach with their star point guard. Ball's next chance to suit up will come Thursday in a rematch against the Bucks in Charlotte, while Tre Mann should continue to start at point guard in Ball's absence.

  • Hornets' Davis Bertans: Questionable for Tuesday

    Bertans (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee.

    Bertans has missed the past two games due to a left knee hyperextension, but it's somewhat encouraging that he's questionable for Tuesday's matchup after being deemed doubtful ahead of Charlotte's last two matchups. If Bertans sits once again, Grant Williams could see additional playing time.

  • Hornets' Vasilije Micic: Dishes out seven assists

    Micic posted 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 24 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Micic debuted with the Hornets on Feb. 10 after being acquired in the trade that sent Gordon Hayward to the Hornets, and the Serbian guard has been a revelation off the bench for Charlotte. Even though he's not going to be a game-changing player and probably won't rack up stats left and right, he's proving to be an accomplished passer when given enough minutes. In six appearances with Charlotte, he's averaging 9.7 points and 6.0 assists per game.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Impressive at both ends Sunday

    Richards logged 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 33 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 victory over Portland.

    Richards was efficient from the field, but the big man also made his presence felt on the defensive end as well, grabbing double-digit boards and operating as a disruptive presence. Richards has now either scored double-digit points or grabbed double-digit rebounds in his last seven appearances, a span in which he's averaging 13.4 points and 9.6 boards per contest. He's also swatting 1.4 shots per game in that stretch.

  • Hornets' Cody Martin: Hands out 10 assists in win

    Martin recorded 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, 10 assists, one block and two steals in 31 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 win over Portland.

    Martin has been doing an excellent job since being promoted to a starting role in late January, but this was one of his best performances of the season by a sizable margin. Aside from the fact the 10 assists were a season-high mark for him, it was also his first double-double since the 2020-21 campaign. Martin should remain in a starting role when the Hornets take on the Bucks on Tuesday.

  • Hornets' Davis Bertans: Out Sunday

    Bertans (knee) won't play in Sunday's game against the Trail Blazers.

    Bertans will miss a second consecutive contest due to a left knee injury he suffered in Thursday's game against the Jazz. Bertans' absence will have a limited impact on the rotation as he is averaging just 10.8 minutes per game since joining the team. His minutes will likely be picked up by Miles Bridges or Grant Williams.

  • Hornets' Seth Curry: Late scratch Sunday

    Curry won't play Sunday versus Portland due to right hip soreness.

    Curry will miss his first game with the Hornets since being acquired at the Feb. 8 trade deadline. He's held a modest bench role thus far for Charlotte, averaging 9.2 points in 19.8 minutes across five appearances. Vasilije Micic and Bryce McGowens could see increased workloads with the second unit with Curry out on Sunday.

  • Hornets' LaMelo Ball: Remains out Sunday

    Ball (ankle) won't play Sunday against Portland.

    Ball returned to practice Wednesday, but he'll end up missing his 14th game in a row Sunday. Considering the Hornets' status as a non-contender in addition to Ball's history of ankle issues, the franchise may be inclined to take a cautious approach with easing him back into game action. Ball should be considered questionable -- at best -- for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

  • Hornets' Davis Bertans: Doubtful to play Sunday

    Bertans (knee) is doubtful to play Sunday against the Trail Blazers.

    Bertans suffered a left knee injury against the Jazz on Thursday and missed Friday's game against the Warriors, so his chances of playing Sunday don't look too promising. Even if he's available, Bertans shouldn't affect many fantasy decisions, as he's logging just 7.1 minutes per game this season.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Puts up double-double in loss

    Richards contributed 11 points (4-6 FG, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 29 minutes during Friday's 97-84 loss to the Warriors.

    Although Richards doesn't always record substantial shot volume, his prowess off the glass has been a bright spot for the Hornets. Richards has been an excellent fill-in for Mark Williams (back), and the Kentucky product is projected to hold onto the role until mid-March at the earliest.

  • Hornets' Miles Bridges: Leads team with 19 points in loss

    Bridges logged 19 points (8-18 FG, 3-7 3Pt), 11 rebounds, three assists, one block and two steals over 41 minutes during Friday's 97-84 loss to Golden State.

    Although the Hornets are slowly getting back to full health, Bridges has carried the load for the team frequently. He put up his second consecutive double-double in the win and should remain a high-profile fantasy option despite the poor fortunes of the squad. LaMelo Ball's (ankle) return is imminent, but Bridges' production may not be adversely affected.

  • Hornets' Davis Bertans: Ruled out Friday

    Bertans (knee) will not play in Friday's game against the Warriors.

    Bertans poured in nine points in just six minutes of action Thursday against the Jazz before leaving the game for good with a hyperextended left knee. His next chance to play will be Sunday against Portland.

  • Hornets' Davis Bertans: Unlikely to play Friday

    Bertans (knee) is listed as doubtful for Friday's game versus the Warriors.

    Bertans is expected to miss Friday's contest due to a hyperextended left knee he suffered against the Jazz on Thursday. The 30-year-old forward is averaging 6.0 points in 10.8 minutes across four appearances for Charlotte.

  • Hornets' LaMelo Ball: Remains out Friday

    Ball (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Warriors.

    Ball returned to practice Wednesday, but it's still unclear when he'll be able to suit up again. He'll miss a 13th straight game Friday, and his next chance to suit up will come Sunday in Portland. While Ball remains sidelined, Tre Mann should continue to play a significant role for the Hornets.
