Description: Hornets small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist came off the bench and led the Hornets with 15 points on Saturday.

Description: Hornets small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will return from his foot injury on Wednesday against the Celtics unless he suffers a setback.
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist missed 12 straight games due to a stress reaction. His return means Gerald Henderson and P.J. Hairston will become fantasy irrelevant. If for some reason Kidd-Gilchrist is available, he should be added in standard leagues.

Description: Hornets small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will not be a relevant fantasy player this season.
Insight: He averaged only 7.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg, and 0.8 apg last season. Kidd-Gilchrist simply does not provide enough production to be considered a suitable fantasy asset.

Description: Bobcats small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (back) will play Saturday, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hand) practiced again on Monday and it looks like he'll be able to return Tuesday against New York. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist broke his left (non-shooting) hand in early December and is being fitted with a protective glove for his hand. We're still waiting for him to blossom into a fantasy-worthy player. For now he's averaging 9.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 0.7 apg.
 
1/8/2014 2:48:00 PM

12/4/2013 5:14:00 PM
Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will miss 4-6 weeks with a non-displaced fracture of his left hand, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist is the fourth player in the last week to break his hand (J.J. Redick, Paul Pierce and Anthony Davis suffered the same injury). Jeff Taylor and Anthony Tolliver are expected to fill in at small forward, but fantasy owners can hold off on adding either of them.

Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist fractured his left hand during Tuesday night's loss at Dallas. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: This is getting ridiculous. Kidd-Gilchrist is the fourth player in the last week to break his hand (J.J. Redick, Paul Pierce and Anthony Davis suffered the same injury). He's going to be out at least a month. Jeff Taylor is likely to take over Kidd-Gilchrist's spot in the starting lineup.
 
12/1/2013 12:32:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (plantar fasciitis) expects to play Sunday against the Heat, according to Bobcats reporter Stephanie Ready.
Insight: MKG has scored under 10 points in each of his last seven games and should not be owned in most leagues.
 
11/30/2013 3:05:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was back at practice on Saturday. He should be able to play Sunday against Miami. SOURCE: Charlotte Observer
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist missed Friday night's game with plantar fasciitis. It's an injury that heals with time so it's a little surprising to see him back so soon. Even when healthy, the 20-year-old isn't a particularly appealing fantasy option.
 
11/29/2013 7:05:00 PM
Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist won't be available Friday night against Milwaukee. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: MKG is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He's been getting around in a walking boot, which suggests he might be out a while. Expect Jeff Taylor to fill the void at small forward.
 
11/22/2013 10:01:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has not had more than nine points in any of his last four games.
Insight: He scored 14 or more points in six of eight games from Nov. 1-15, but his offensive woes have returned. He only made 9-of-25 from the field his previous four games before attempting just two shots in 18 minutes Friday against Phoenix. He still had nine points because he made seven free throws, but his lack of scoring makes him a poor fantasy option.
 
11/11/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has scored in double figures in four straight games, including Monday against Atlanta when he had 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting (4-5 FT).
Insight: The 20-year-old is averaging 15 ppg during that span. If he can keep his scoring in double digits, he'll be a solid fantasy option due to his contributions in rebounds (6.1 rpg), blocks (1.4 bpg) and steals (0.7 spg).
