Top Hornets News

  • Hornets' Nick Smith: Returns to NBA

    The Hornets recalled Smith from the G League's Greesboro Swarm on Thursday.

    Smith will be available for Thursday's game versus the Bucks. The rookie guard is averaging 6.5 points, 1.5 assists and 1.0 rebounds in 16.4 minutes across his last 10 appearances for Charlotte.

  • Hornets' LaMelo Ball: Will remain out Thursday

    Ball (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Bucks.

    Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reported during the All-Star break that Ball was doing on-court work and increasing his workload daily, but the point guard is slated to miss a 16th straight game Thursday. Tre Mann should continue to start at point guard in Ball's absence, while the latter's next chance to suit up will come Friday in Philadelphia.

  • Hornets' Miles Bridges: Poor shooting display Tuesday

    Bridges produced 17 points (6-15 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and two steals over 37 minutes during Tuesday's 123-85 loss to Milwaukee.

    Bridges didn't have his best shooting performance Tuesday, and his shooting woes played a big role in the team's overall struggles, as the Hornets scored just 85 total points. Despite the subpar performance, Bridges remains a strong play in most formats as one of Charlotte's primary offensive weapons. Over his last 10 games, he's averaging 23.9 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.8 assists and 1.1 steals per contest.

  • Hornets' Brandon Miller: Scores 14 points with 14 shots

    Miller had 14 points (6-14 FG, 2-7 3Pt), two rebounds, two assists and one steal across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 123-85 loss to the Bucks.

    Miller has been struggling a bit from the field in recent weeks, though that was somewhat to be expected since he's a rookie who's enduring a huge workload on offense in a rebuilding team. Miller is averaging 16.8 points but shooting just 39.5 percent from the field over his last five contests.

  • Hornets' Tre Mann: Hits double-digit points

    Mann posted 16 points (6-12 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 2-5 FT), four rebounds, three assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 123-85 loss to the Bucks.

    Mann has been operating as the Hornets' starting point guard since joining the team from the Thunder before the deadline, and the returns have been encouraging. Mann has scored in double digits in five of his seven starts with Charlotte while also averaging 5.3 rebounds, 4.9 assists and 1.7 steals per game in that seven-game span.

  • Hornets' Davis Bertans: Available to play

    Bertans (knee) is available for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    Bertans missed the past two games for the Hornets, but there's no word of any restrictions. With the Hornets acquiring Aleksej Pokusevski on Tuesday, Bertans will have more competition for minutes down the stretch.

  • Hornets' Seth Curry: Good to go Tuesday

    Curry (hip) is available for Tuesday's game versus the Bucks.

    Curry has been upgraded from probable to available Tuesday after missing Charlotte's previous contest with right hip soreness. Curry has struggled with his outside this season, shooting a career-low 34.3 percent on 2.5 three-point attempts per contest.

  • Hornets' Aleksej Pokusevski: Signs with Charlotte

    Pokusevski agreed to a contract with Charlotte on Tuesday after being waived by Oklahoma City last week, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Pokusevski, the 17th overall pick of the 2020 NBA Draft, has dealt with myriad of injuries across three-plus seasons in Oklahoma City. However, the 22-year-old flashed potential in 34 appearances in 2022-23, averaging 8.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.3 blocks and 1.1 three-pointers in 20.6 minutes while shooting 39.5 percent from three-point range. A skinny frame likely precludes the seven-foot Serbian from evolving into a full-time center, but he will likely take priority over JT Thor for third-string minutes in the Hornets' frontcourt moving forward.

  • Hornets' Seth Curry: Probable for Tuesday

    Curry (hip) is probable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee.

    Curry was sidelined for Sunday's win over Portland due to right hip soreness, but he appears on track to return to action Tuesday. In five appearances for the Hornets since being acquired from the Mavericks at the trade deadline, Curry is averaging 9.2 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 three-pointers in 19.8 minutes per contest.

  • Hornets' LaMelo Ball: Won't play Tuesday

    Ball (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    Despite returning to practice last week, Ball will miss a 15th straight game. The Hornets aren't a contender this season, so they'll presumably take a cautious approach with their star point guard. Ball's next chance to suit up will come Thursday in a rematch against the Bucks in Charlotte, while Tre Mann should continue to start at point guard in Ball's absence.

  • Hornets' Davis Bertans: Questionable for Tuesday

    Bertans (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Milwaukee.

    Bertans has missed the past two games due to a left knee hyperextension, but it's somewhat encouraging that he's questionable for Tuesday's matchup after being deemed doubtful ahead of Charlotte's last two matchups. If Bertans sits once again, Grant Williams could see additional playing time.

  • Hornets' Vasilije Micic: Dishes out seven assists

    Micic posted 11 points (5-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), two rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 24 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Micic debuted with the Hornets on Feb. 10 after being acquired in the trade that sent Gordon Hayward to the Hornets, and the Serbian guard has been a revelation off the bench for Charlotte. Even though he's not going to be a game-changing player and probably won't rack up stats left and right, he's proving to be an accomplished passer when given enough minutes. In six appearances with Charlotte, he's averaging 9.7 points and 6.0 assists per game.

  • Hornets' Nick Richards: Impressive at both ends Sunday

    Richards logged 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks and two steals across 33 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 victory over Portland.

    Richards was efficient from the field, but the big man also made his presence felt on the defensive end as well, grabbing double-digit boards and operating as a disruptive presence. Richards has now either scored double-digit points or grabbed double-digit rebounds in his last seven appearances, a span in which he's averaging 13.4 points and 9.6 boards per contest. He's also swatting 1.4 shots per game in that stretch.
