Injured Right foot stress reaction Open link
Coach Steve Clifford said Saturday that he's not expecting Kidd-Gilchrist back soon, with Dec. 3 mentioned as a possible return date. MKG is still not allowed to shoot, Clifford said, because the doctors don't want him jumping. The Hornets want to be as careful as possible with the stress reaction in his right foot, in the hopes to avoid the possibility of it developing into a stress fracture. "We're lucky that he said something (about feeling pain) because if he gets a stress fracture we're in deep trouble," said Clifford. "I think that is why they're being very careful." Lance Stephenson, Gerald Henderson, Gary Neal, and PJ Hairston (ankle) will handle the majority of the minutes on the wing for the Hornets for as long as MKG remains sidelined.

Out Right foot Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist has been ruled out for his fifth straight game on Friday as he continues to deal with a stress reaction in his right foot. It remains unclear as to how soon he'll be able to return to the active roster as he remains without a definitive timetable. The Hornets will continue to be short-handed Friday with PJ Hairston (ankle) also ruled out. Lance Stephenson, Gerald Henderson (ankle, probable), and Gary Neal (concussion, probable) will handle the majority of the minutes on the wing for the Hornets.

Out Right foot Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist has been ruled out in advance of Wednesday's contest vs. the Pacers as he continues to deal with a stress reaction in his right foot. Wednesday will mark his fourth straight game missed due the stress reaction in his right foot, and it remains unclear as to how soon he'll be able to return to the active roster. The Hornets will be extremely thin on the wing on Wednesday, with Gary Neal (concussion) also out and PJ Hairston (ankle) unlikely to play, meaning substantial run for both Lance Stephenson and Gerald Henderson.

Out Right foot Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist has been ruled out in advance of Monday's contest vs. the Mavs as he continues to deal with a stress reaction in his right foot. He remains without a timetable for a return, and appears highly unlikely to play on Wednesday either. Monday will mark the third straight game that Kidd-Gilchrist will miss due to the foot injury as he and the team take a cautious approach. "I'm going to take my time coming back and make sure everything is right again," Kidd-Gilchrist said of his recovery earlier. PJ Hairston will remain in the starting lineup at small forward for at least another game, with Gerald Henderson and Lance Stephenson also expected to see extended run on the wing for as long as MKG remains sidelined.

Injured Right foot Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist has been ruled out for at least two games due to a stress reaction in his right foot. He will be re-evaluated in Charlotte and a recovery timeline will be determined at that time. No further details were provided, but it sounds like the injury could certainly cost him more time beyond those two games. "I'm going to take my time coming back and make sure everything is right again," Kidd-Gilchrist said of his recovery. PJ Hairston will enter the starting lineup at small forward for at least the next two games, with Gerald Henderson and Gary Neal also expected to see extended run on the wing for as long as MKG remains sidelined.
11/7/2014 4:21 PM
Active Rib contusion Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist will return to the starting lineup for Friday's contest vs. the Hawks, according to coach Steve Clifford. He participated in all of shootaround this morning and was on track to play barring any setbacks. MKG has missed the past two games due to a rib contusion, an injury he suffered after taking a hard fall during Sunday's loss. His return will push Gerald Henderson back to the bench and cut into the minutes of Gary Neal on the wing.
11/7/2014 10:26 AM
Probable Rib contusion Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist participated in all of shootaround this morning, but is considered a game-time decision for Friday's contest according to coach Steve Clifford. He had previously been upgraded to probable, and though it appears more likely than not that he'll play, the team will take a more cautious approach here to make sure he's all the way recovered first. MKG has missed the past two games due to a rib contusion, an injury he suffered after taking a hard fall during Sunday's loss. His likely return will push Gerald Henderson back to the bench and cut into the minutes of Gary Neal on the wing.

Probable Rib contusion Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist has been upgraded to probable for Friday's contest vs. the Hawks. He has missed the past two games due to a rib contusion, an injury he suffered after taking a hard fall during Sunday's loss. MKG's return would push Gerald Henderson back to the bench and cut into the minutes of Gary Neal on the wing.
11/5/2014 4:19 PM
Out Rib contusion Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist has been ruled out of Wednesday's contest vs. the Heat, his second straight missed game due to a rib contusion. Gerald Henderson will draw another start at small forward in his place, with Gary Neal continuing to see heavy run off the bench.
11/5/2014 3:45 PM
Questionable Rib contusion Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist is listed as questionable for Wednesday's contest vs. the Heat and is most likely headed for a game-time decision. He tried participating in Tuesday morning's shootaround, but was unsuccessful and was later declared out for Tuesday's loss. "He tried, but he's hurting," said coach Steve Clifford. "So it would be better to rest him." Gerald Henderson would draw another start at small forward should MKG miss additional time, with Gary Neal to also see extended run on the wing.

Out Rib contusion Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist tried participating in morning shootaround but was unsuccessful and has been declared out for Tuesday's game vs. the Pelicans. "He tried, but he's hurting," said coach Steve Clifford. "So it would be better to rest him." We're also considering MKG doubtful for the second leg of the back-to-back on Wednesday, given today's update. Gerald Henderson has been named the starter at small forward in MKG's place, with Gary Neal to also see extended run on the wing in his absence.
11/3/2014 11:22 AM
Questionable Rib contusion Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist has officially been listed as questionable by the Hornets for Tuesday's game with a rib contusion. He took a hard fall during Sunday's loss and though he remained in the game and looked to be fine, eventually departed to the locker room to undergo testing. Gary Neal started in MKG's place in the second half, and would see extended run along with Gerald Henderson if he's forced to miss any time due to the rib injury.
11/2/2014 9:16 PM
Questionable Bruised ribs Open link
Kidd-Gilchrist had X-rays and a CT scan taken of his chest after his hard fall on Sunday, but he's been diagnosed with just bruised ribs and is considered day-to-day. MKG remained in the game after taking the fall, and appeared to be fine, but he eventually departed for the locker room and underwent the testing. Gary Neal started the second half of Sunday's game in MKG's place, and he and Gerald Henderson would see the surplus minutes on the wing if MKG isn't cleared to play on Tuesday vs. New Orleans.
