Top Hornets News

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Questionable for Tuesday

    Richards (foot) is questionable for Tuesday's game against the Magic, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Richards missed Sunday's loss to Toronto, which resulted in Grant Williams filling the void at center on his way to 40 minutes. If Richards is again forced to the sidelines, Williams should continue to get all the run he can handle as a small-ball five.

  • Hornets' Cody Martin: Out at least two weeks

    The Hornets announced Monday that Martin (ankle) will be evaluated in two weeks.

    Martin and Seth Curry (ankle) are slated to miss at least the next two weeks, so Vasilije Micic, Bryce McGowens and Nick Smith are candidates for increased roles. Health has been an issue for Martin all season long, as he's appeared in 42 of 63 games thus far.

  • Hornets' Seth Curry: Slated to miss at least two weeks

    The Hornets announced Monday that Curry (ankle) will be evaluated in two weeks.

    Curry and Cody Martin (ankle) are slated to miss at least the next two weeks, so Vasilije Micic, Bryce McGowens and Nick Smith are candidates for increased roles moving forward. Before missing Sunday's loss to Toronto, Curry had appeared in eight of nine games, averaging 9.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 19.8 minutes during that stretch.

  • Hornets' Nick Smith: Recalled to NBA

    The Hornets recalled Smith from the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Monday.

    Smith hasn't appeared in an NBA game since before the All-Star break. However, with Seth Curry (ankle) and Cody Martin (ankle) joining LaMelo Ball (ankle) on the sidelines recently, there may be depth minutes available for the rookie guard.

  • Hornets' Vasilije Micic: Solid numbers in first NBA start

    Micic totaled 12 points (5-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), two rebounds, six assists and two steals over 36 minutes during Sunday's 111-106 loss to Toronto.

    The 30-year-old rookie got his first career start in the NBA due to all the Hornets' backcourt injuries, and Micic was able to deliver decent production. He's seen a bigger workload over the last 10 games and held his own, scoring in double digits six times while averaging 8.7 points, 5.9 assists and 1.5 boards over 22.9 minutes a contest. Micic also has six steals in the last five games. If he continues to contribute defensively, he'll have some deep-league fantasy appeal.

  • Hornets' Aleksej Pokusevski: Recalled to Hornets

    Charlotte recalled Pokusevski from the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Monday.

    Pokusevski latched on with Charlotte after being waived by Oklahoma City at the end of February. He will likely get some opportunities to impress with the Hornets down the stretch, as they are dealing with a ton of injuries all over the roster.

  • Hornets' Miles Bridges: Hits for 20 in loss to Toronto

    Bridges notched 20 points (9-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 40 minutes during Sunday's 111-106 loss to the Raptors.

    The 25-year-old forward continues to make an impact on the glass for a Hornets team that's dealing with some frontcourt injuries. Over the last nine games, Bridges is averaging 19.9 points, 9.2 boards, 3.1 assists, 2.3 threes and 1.1 steals, racking up six double-doubles during that stretch.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Double-double in Sunday's start

    Williams produced 18 points (6-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists, one block and one steal across 40 minutes during Sunday's 111-106 loss to Toronto.

    Making his first start as a member of the Hornets, Williams delivered his second double-double of the season. The fifth-year big has looked good with his new club, averaging 14.2 points, 5.8 boards, 2.2 assists and 1.8 threes over the last 10 games, but Sunday's shift to the starting five could last only as long as Nick Richards (foot) is sidelined.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: First career double-double Sunday

    Miller finished with 26 points (11-21 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and one block over 37 minutes during Sunday's 111-106 loss to Toronto.

    It was the first career double-double for the second overall pick in the 2023 Draft. Miller has scored 20-plus points in seven of 14 games since the beginning of February, averaging 20.9 points, 4.9 boards, 2.9 threes, 2.5 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.8 blocks over that stretch and emerging as one of the centerpieces of the Hornets' offense.

  • Hornets' Grant Williams: Starting at center Sunday

    Williams (back) will start Sunday's game against the Raptors.

    With Nick Richards (foot) sidelined, Williams will make his first start with the Hornets. Williams has come off the bench in each of his first nine appearances with Charlotte, but he's scored in double figures eight times, averaging 13.8 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 28.0 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Vasilije Micic: Gets starting nod Sunday

    Micic will start Sunday's game against the Raptors.

    With LaMelo Ball (ankle), Seth Curry (ankle) and Cody Martin (ankle) sidelined, Micic will start next to Tre Mann in Charlotte's backcourt. It'll be Micic's first start of his NBA career, but he's been playing well of late, averaging 8.3 points and 5.9 assists in 21.4 minutes over his last nine appearances.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Sitting out Sunday

    Richards (foot) won't play Sunday against the Raptors.

    Richards will miss his first game since Jan. 22 due to plantar fascia discomfort in his right foot. Charlotte will be shorthanded at center in his absence, likely resorting to a combination of Grant Williams, Marques Bolden and JT Thor to fill minutes at the position.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Added to injury report

    Richards is questionable for Sunday's game against Toronto due to right foot discomfort.

    Richards is dealing with plantar fascia discomfort in his right foot, which can carry a risk of lingering flare-ups, so his status will need to be monitored. He has suited up in 19 consecutive games for the Hornets, although he's averaging just 11.3 points and 6.3 rebounds in 25.7 minutes across his last three contests.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Cleared to play Sunday

    Miller (back) is available for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

    As expected, Miller has been upgraded from probable to available and will suit up after missing Charlotte's previous contest due to a low-back injury. Over his last 15 appearances, the rookie has averaged 21.1 points, 4.5 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.6 steals in 35.1 minutes per game.

  • Hornets' Amari Bailey: Called up from G League

    The Hornets recalled Bailey from the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Saturday.

    Bailey has appeared in just three games this season, but he could be featured in head coach Steve Clifford's rotation Sunday versus the Raptors with all of LaMelo Ball (ankle), Seth Curry (ankle) and Cody Martin (ankle) ruled out for the contest.

  • Hornets' Leaky Black: Rejoins parent club

    Charlotte recalled Black from the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Saturday.

    The Hornets will be shorthanded Sunday versus Toronto, as Cody Martin (ankle) and Seth Curry (ankle) will be sidelined along with LaMelo Ball (ankle) and Mark Williams (back). Black could see some rare rotation minutes as a result.

  • Hornets' Cody Martin: Won't play Sunday

    Martin (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

    Martin and Seth Curry (ankle) are both out for at least one game after starting Friday's loss to the 76ers but leaving early. Brandon Miller (back) is expected to return following a one-game absence, but Vasilije Micic, Davis Bertans and Bryce McGowens are all candidates for a few extra minutes with Martin and Curry sidelined.

  • Hornets' Seth Curry: Ruled out for Sunday

    Curry (ankle) won't play in Sunday's game versus the Raptors.

    Curry suffered an ankle injury in Friday's loss to the 76ers while starting in place of Brandon Miller (back). In addition to Curry being out, the Hornets will also be without Cody Martin (ankle) on Sunday, but Miller is expected to suit up.
