Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) will not play on Monday vs. the Bucks. MKG is back with the Hornets after spending nearly the past two weeks with his family following the loss of his grandmother. Coach Steve Clifford wants MKG to build his conditioning back up before activating him, but he should have a good chance of playing on Wednesday vs. the Nuggets. Jeremy Lamb will be the best Charlotte wing to deploy in fantasy on Monday, while Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk will continue to get a bump.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) practiced with the Hornets on Saturday. Kidd-Gilchrist had been away from the team for almost two weeks, as he dealt with an undisclosed, excused personal situation. Charlotte's next game is Monday vs. Milwaukee. It is unknown if MKG will be ready to suit up for that contest. Dwayne Bacon started each of the Hornets first two games, averaging 7.0 points and 6.5 rebounds in 20.0 minutes per game. Bacon will be bumped back to the bench once Kidd-Gilchrist is ready to play starter's minutes.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) is not with the team and will not play Friday vs. the Hawks. MKG did not play in the season opener either, as he has been away from the team for nearly two weeks now. The Hornets have not yet provided details as to the reason for Kidd-Gilchrist's absence or when he is expected to return. Dwayne Bacon drew the start on Wednesday, scoring eight points in 20 minutes. Malik Monk and Treveon Graham will likely see additional minutes again on Friday as well.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) has officially been ruled out for Wednesday's season opener against the Pistons. It'll either be Dwayne Bacon or Jeremy Lamb replacing MKG in the starting five for Wednesday night's game, but Steve Clifford won't be revealing his starters until we're closer to tipoff. The Hornets have not yet provided a timetable for Kidd-Cilchrist's return, and we still don't know exactly why he's away from the team, but hopefully he can sort out this personal issue relatively soon. Between Lamb and Bacon, Lamb is the more attractive fantasy option.

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer said that it's a "given" that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) won't play in Wednesday's season opener. He's still away from the team tending to a personal matter and it's unclear when he'll be back. With Nicolas Batum (elbow) out for a while, the Hornets will have to rely heavily on their two rookies in Malik Monk and Dwyane Bacon. Jeremy Lamb is the biggest winner in fantasy, though.
