Michael Kidd-Gilchrist    F  Hornets

 

 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist notched his first double-double of the season on Wednesday with 18 points and a season-high 11 rebounds in 29 minutes of action. MKG added two assists and one steal without any turnovers, and he shot 8-of-12 from the field and 2-of-2 from the line tonight. He did most of his damage at the rim, as usual, but also shot 3-of-6 on mid-range jumpers. Despite a conspicuous lack of 3-pointers and assists, MKG contributes in enough fantasy categories to be worth owning in most roto leagues.

Kidd-Gilchrist posted 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and a steal across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 108-96 loss to the Rockets. With both Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum struggling with their shots on Wednesday, Kidd-Gilchrist emerged as the second-best offensive option for the Hornets. Although most of his output occurred in garbage time when the game was out of reach, he still gave his best stat line of the year. From a fantasy perspective, Kidd-Gilchrist only warrants wide ownership in deeper leagues.

Kidd-Gilchrist totaled 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block in 34 minutes during Monday's 116-103 victory over the Thunder. Kidd-Gilchrist came to play Monday, chipping in across the board. He finished with season-high totals in both assists and steals, while adding a very efficient 17 points. He has been better of late, displaying some of the upside that we know he has. While he won't deliver big scoring numbers like this every night, he is worth an add in most leagues as a player who can contribute across the board.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist hit 8-of-9 shots for 17 points, four rebounds, four assists, four steals and a block on Monday, but also hit just 1-of-3 free throws in an easy win over the Thunder. His season high in scoring is 22, but this was his best game of the season. He's been playing well of late, averaging 11.6 points, 5.6 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 0.8 blocks on 53 percent shooting over his last five games, making him worth an add look in most leagues.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 12 points, one rebound and one assist in 28 minutes on Wednesday, making 4-of-8 field goals and 4-of-5 free throws in 28 minutes. The Hornets used a 19-2 run in the third quarter to cut into a big halftime deficit, but they ultimately fell in Toronto for their third straight loss. MKG didn't have any steals or blocks to fill out his line, and he's really struggling in reduced minutes over Charlotte's past two games. Despite lacking the sheer rest-of-season upside of some fantasy free agents, MKG is still a hold in most situations.

Kidd-Gilchrist managed just three points (1-8 FG, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 21 minutes in Saturday's 106-86 loss to the Spurs. One night after a solid 17-point effort against the Cavaliers, Kidd-Gilchrist could barely find the net Saturday. The 24-year-old's scoring total was his second lowest of the campaign, and his minutes were his fewest since Oct. 27. The six-year veteran continues to provide inconsistent offensive production but remains a steady source of rebounds, hauling in at least four boards in nine of his last 12 games.

Kidd-Gilchrist totaled 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-4 FT) and five rebounds across a season-high 37 minutes of action in a 100-99 loss to the Cleveland cavaliers on Friday. The 17 points marked MKG's second-highest total of the season, as he also set a season-high with 15 shots taken and 37 minutes played. The only issue is the lack of defensive statistics, as he's averaging just 4.4 rebounds and 0.5 steals per game for the season. That's simply too low from a player who specializes in defense, but he's due for some positive regression if he continues to see 30 minutes a game.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist hit 4-of-12 shots for eight points, three rebounds, one assist and two blocks in 32 minutes of Monday's 118-102 win over Minnesota. MKG played on Saturday and had seven points, four boards, a block and a steal, and is averaging 10.8 points, 4.4 rebounds, 0.6 steals and 1.2 blocks over his last five games. His defensive stats make him worth a look in all leagues, but a lack of offense and 3-pointers leaves something to be desired. He's not for everyone.

Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) has been cleared to play for Saturday's game against the Clippers. Kidd-Gilchrist was originally listed on the injury report as probable with a right ankle sprain, though apparently is feeling well enough to play after the team's morning shootaround. Over the past three contests, he's posted 13.0 points and 5.0 rebounds across 28.3 minutes per game.

Kidd-Gilchrist is probable for Saturday's game against the Clippers due to a right ankle sprain. Kidd-Gilchrist likely suffered the injury during Friday's game against the Bulls, though still played 27 minutes -- nothing unusually low for him. More word on his status should emerge closer to tipoff. On the off chance he misses the game, Jeremy Lamb and Dwayne Bacon would probably be the main beneficiaries.
