Michael Kidd-Gilchrist    F  Hornets

 

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had just five points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes on Wednesday, making 2-of-7 field goals and 1-of-2 free throws. MKG hasn't scored double-digit points this month, and he hasn't blocked a shot since Jan. 20. Games like this have become the norm, unfortunately, and he belongs on the wire in the majority of fantasy formats.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored six points with one rebound and two turnovers in 24 minutes against the Pacers on Friday. He lost a lot of run to Michael Carter-Williams, so that's not a good sign. MKG has been just OK in 2018, averaging 11.4 points, 3.8 boards, 1.1 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.7 turnovers in his January games. If you wanted to drop him for a higher-upside guy, it's not a bad idea.

Kidd-Gilchrist produced 19 points (8-14 FG, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 30 minutes during a 121-110 win over the Hawks on Friday. After a quiet game Wednesday in his return from a one-game absence, Kidd-Gilchrist picked it up Friday with a solid all-around line. The 19 points marked his third-best scoring output of the season. Kidd-Gilchrist has been shooting the ball well lately, at better than 57 percent over each of his last four games.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 19 points with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Friday. January has easily been his best offensive month with his best scoring average and efficiency. Kidd-Gilchrist also has seen more steals and blocks, so he may finally be trending up after a rocky start. The Hornets are reportedly trying to shop him and maybe this recent play helps them.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (arm) was back in action on Wednesday with seven points on 3-of-3 shooting, two rebounds and one steal in 23 minutes. MKG missed one game due to a right arm abscess, but fortunately it wasn't serious. He's shown signs of life over the past two weeks with 12.5 points on 50.9 percent shooting, but is adding just 3.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 0.3 blocks in that span. He's worth holding if there aren't more well-rounded options on your waiver wire.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (arm) is in the starting lineup against the Pelicans on Wednesday. He's back after missing one game due to his arm injury. Kidd-Gilchrist received some praise from coach Steve Clifford and he's having is best offensive month with 12.3 points per game in January. He's worth owning in standard leagues and his value could go up if players are dealt.

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) is no longer listed on the injury report for Wednesday's matchup with the Pelicans. Kidd-Gilchrist was a precautionary scratch from Monday's contest, but as expected, he'll rejoin the lineup ahead of Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. The Hornets aren't reporting any sort of restrictions at this point, so look for Kidd-Gilchrist to take on his typical spot in the starting lineup and see a full workload. With Kidd-Gilchrist back, Treveon Graham should head back to the bench, while Malik Monk is a candidate to see a few less minutes as well.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (abscess in right arm) was a full participant at shootaround and is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Pelicans. It looks like MKG will be back in action tonight following a one-game stint on the sidelines, which will queue Treveon Graham's return to the second unit and there also won't be as many minutes available for Jeremy Lamb and Malik Monk. Check back closer to tip-off for official confirmation on Kidd-Gilchrist's status.

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) went through morning shootaround and is expected to play Wednesday against the Pelicans, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports. Kidd-Gilchrist came into Wednesday with a probable designation, so this news isn't too surprising. That said, it has not yet been officially confirmed that he will take the floor. Assuming that happens, Treveon Graham would likely head back to the bench, with Malik Monk likely seeing fewer minutes as well.
