Hornets' LaMelo Ball: Still out Wednesday
Ball (ankle) remains out for Wednesday's game versus the Nets.
Ball doesn't have a clear timetable for his return to the floor, and there haven't been any indicators of his progress of late. With Dennis Smith (ankle) also out again, Terry Rozier and Theo Maledon should handle most of the point guard duties.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Dennis Smith: Out again Wednesday
Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's matchup against the Nets.

Hornets' Nick Richards: Double-double off bench
Richards accumulated 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds and two assists across 20 minutes during Monday's 119-117 loss to the Clippers.
The third-year center recorded his sixth double-double of the season, four of which have come in the last eight games. Richards is averaging 9.8 points, 8.9 boards and 0.8 blocks in 20 minutes a night over that stretch as he emerges as a solid second-unit player.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Terry Rozier: Strong showing in Monday's loss
Rozier had 22 points (8-22 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 37 minutes during Monday's 119-117 loss to the Clippers.
The 28-year-old guard scored at least 22 points for a fifth straight game, although he sat out one game during that stretch due to illness. Rozier has taken full advantage of the fact LaMelo Ball has missed most of the season due to an ankle injury, and he's on pace to set new career highs in scoring (21.3 points per game), assists (5.8 per game) and rebounds (4.8 per game)....

Hornets' P.J. Washington: Bounces back Monday
Washington recorded 26 points (11-21 FG, 4-10 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal in 34 minutes during Monday's 119-117 loss to the Clippers.
The fourth-year forward stumbled to zero points in 33 minutes on 0-for-13 shooting against the Bucks on Saturday, but Washington shook off that awful performance and scored 20-plus for the fourth time in the last nine games. Over that stretch, he's averaging 18.1 points, 5.0 boards, 3.1 assists, 2.7 threes and 1.0 steals as he takes on a bigger role for a Hornets squad that's seen little of LaMelo Ball (ankle) or Gordon Hayward (shoulder) this season....

Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Pops for 28 in Monday's loss
Oubre finished Monday's 119-117 loss to the Clippers with 28 points (10-23 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 4-6 FT), seven rebounds and two assists over 40 minutes.
The 26-year-old continues to shine for the undermanned Hornets, leading the team in scoring on the night as he delivered his fifth straight performance with 20 or more points and 10th in the last 14 games. Oubre is on pace for the best season of his career, and through 24 games, he's averaging better than 20 points a night, which would top the 18.7 points he averaged in 2019-20 for the Suns....

Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Clippers.

Hornets' Kelly Oubre: Fourth straight 20-point game
Oubre notched 20 points (4-14 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 11-12 FT), two rebounds and two steals across 39 minutes during Saturday's 105-96 loss to the Bucks.
Oubre had a first half to forget, going 1-of-7 from the field for five points as the Hornets struggled to keep pace with Milwaukee. He made only three of seven shot attempts in the second half but went 9-of-10 from the free-throw line to finish third on the team in scoring with 20 points. Oubre made a season-high 11 free throws in the contest and has now scored at least 20 points in four straight.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Jalen McDaniels: Another solid night from field
McDaniels racked up 21 points (8-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal over 33 minutes during Saturday's 105-96 loss to the Bucks.
After going just 3-of-9 from the field for eight points in the first half, McDaniels poured in another 13 on 5-of-6 shooting over the final two quarters to give him just his second 20-point game of the season. The Hornets forward hit two of the team's five three-pointers on the night and is 7-of-15 from beyond the arc over his last three contests. He's also grabbed at least five rebounds in three of his last four.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Mason Plumlee: Grabs game-high 11 boards
Plumlee supplied 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and two steals over 30 minutes during Saturday's 105-96 loss to the Bucks.
Plumlee's best production came in the second quarter where he collected five points on 2-of-3 shooting from the field, along with four rebounds and two steals. He added just four points in the second half but did collect another seven boards to give him a game-high 11 on the night as the Hornets fell to Milwaukee. Plumlee has now recorded a double-double in back-to-back games and has nine of them on the season. He also grabbed multiple steals Saturday for just the third time during the 2022-2023 campaign....

Hornets' Terry Rozier: Fourth straight 20-point game
Rozier ended Saturday's 105-96 loss to the Bucks with 26 points (10-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds and four assists over 36 minutes.
Rozier had a solid night shooting the ball, going 4-of-8 from the field for 13 points in the first half before adding another 13 in the second half, nine of which came in the fourth quarter. He was just 1-of-7 from three on the night but did hit all five of his free-throw attempts after going 7-of-7 from the foul line in the Hornets' previous game. The point guard has now hit the 20-point mark in four straight contests and is shooting 43.3 percent from the field over that stretch. Rozier figures to continue operating as a go-to playmaker for Charlotte as long as LaMelo Ball (ankle) remains sidelined.... See More ... See Less
Hornets' Nick Richards: Effective in limited action
Richards chipped in 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 FT) and nine rebounds across 13 minutes during Friday's 117-116 victory over Washington.
Richards continues to be a strong per-minute producer. It's challenging to roster him through the ups and downs in standard leagues, but those in deep formats can probably stream him effectively during four-game weeks. Over the past 10 games, he's averaging 9.4 points, 7.2 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 19.1 minutes.... See More ... See Less
