Hornets coach Steve Clifford offered an explanation on why he's not deploying Malik Monk more often. "I know this: There are not coaches on this staff that don’t believe in the kid," Clifford said. "I think he’s done fine. But he’s playing behind some kids who are playing [better]: Jeremy Lamb’s summer changed things for Malik Monk. You can’t not play Jeremy; you can argue he’s been our third-best offensive player." Monk's biggest strength is supposed to be his shooting, but he's not hitting his shots and is also a liability on defense. The Hornets will eventually give him a look if they decide that a playoff run is out of the question, but he's off the radar in re-draft formats.

Malik Monk went for five points on 2-of-5 shooting across 12 minutes Saturday against the Thunder. Monk has played 12 minutes in two of the past three games sandwiched around a DNP-CD. He still has a ways to go before becoming a regular in the rotation, and a team-worst minus-11 rating in limited action isn't likely to precipitate a change to his role. He isn't worth owning in most fantasy leagues at this time.

The Hornets recalled Monk from the G League's Greensboro Swarm on Wednesday. Monk headed to the G League for a tune-up game Tuesday against the Wisconsin Herd with the Hornets in the midst of a four-day break in the schedule. He logged 41 minutes in the contest, finishing with 25 points, eight rebounds and four assists. Though he'll rejoin Charlotte ahead of Wednesday's home game against Boston, Monk remains on the fringe of head coach Steve Clifford's rotation and likely won't play more than a handful of minutes in the contest.

Monk has been assigned to the Greensboro Swarm of the G-League, NBA.com reports. The Hornets sent both Monk and Dwayne Bacon to the G-League on Monday, marking the first assignment of the season for both players. Monk began the season as a key piece in the rotation, but his playing time has gradually dwindled, and he was averaging just 9.6 minutes per game in the month of December. Monk's long-term potential as an instant-offense scorer remains intriguing, but he can be safely ignored in most season-long fantasy formats at this point.

Malik Monk has been sent down for a G-League stint. He's a negligible part of the rotation in Charlotte, so he'll get some much-needed experience in the G-League. He's not worth owning in most leagues.

Hornets acting coach Stephen Silas doesn't expect Malik Monk or Dwayne Bacon to play much in the near future. "We need some wins," Silas said. "It’s not time to develop or gift minutes right now. It’s about winning, and my rotations are going to be short for a while until we get this thing back on track." The Hornets have shortened their rotation recently, but Michael Carter-Williams has been pretty bad and it's hard to imagine him staying ahead of Monk for much longer.
