Description: Bobcats small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (back) will play Saturday, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist had a hard fall Friday night and bruised his back, but the 20-year-old won't have to miss any time. MKG has averaged 24.5 minutes, 7.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.6 blocks this season.

Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist ended up missing six weeks. He'll return to averages of 9.1 ppg and 5.3 rpg. Somehow he's gone the entire season without recording a double-double.

Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist broke his left (non-shooting) hand in early December and is being fitted with a protective glove for his hand. We're still waiting for him to blossom into a fantasy-worthy player. For now he's averaging 9.1 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 0.7 apg.

Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hand) practiced Wednesday for the first time since breaking his hand more than a month ago, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. The team expects to have him back Jan. 14 against the Knicks.
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist broke his left (non-shooting) hand in early December and is being fitted with a protective glove for his hand. Bobcats coach Steve Clifford said Kidd-Gilchrist has been able to maintain his conditioning and will be able to return pretty quickly after a couple of practices.

Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could be back as soon as next week, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

12/4/2013 5:14:00 PM
Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will miss 4-6 weeks with a non-displaced fracture of his left hand, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist is the fourth player in the last week to break his hand (J.J. Redick, Paul Pierce and Anthony Davis suffered the same injury). Jeff Taylor and Anthony Tolliver are expected to fill in at small forward, but fantasy owners can hold off on adding either of them.

Insight: This is getting ridiculous. Kidd-Gilchrist is the fourth player in the last week to break his hand (J.J. Redick, Paul Pierce and Anthony Davis suffered the same injury). He's going to be out at least a month. Jeff Taylor is likely to take over Kidd-Gilchrist's spot in the starting lineup.
 
12/1/2013 12:32:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (plantar fasciitis) expects to play Sunday against the Heat, according to Bobcats reporter Stephanie Ready.
Insight: MKG has scored under 10 points in each of his last seven games and should not be owned in most leagues.

Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was back at practice on Saturday. He should be able to play Sunday against Miami. SOURCE: Charlotte Observer
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist missed Friday night's game with plantar fasciitis. It's an injury that heals with time so it's a little surprising to see him back so soon. Even when healthy, the 20-year-old isn't a particularly appealing fantasy option.

Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist won't be available Friday night against Milwaukee. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: MKG is dealing with plantar fasciitis in his right foot. He's been getting around in a walking boot, which suggests he might be out a while. Expect Jeff Taylor to fill the void at small forward.
 
11/22/2013 10:01:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has not had more than nine points in any of his last four games.
Insight: He scored 14 or more points in six of eight games from Nov. 1-15, but his offensive woes have returned. He only made 9-of-25 from the field his previous four games before attempting just two shots in 18 minutes Friday against Phoenix. He still had nine points because he made seven free throws, but his lack of scoring makes him a poor fantasy option.
 
11/11/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has scored in double figures in four straight games, including Monday against Atlanta when he had 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting (4-5 FT).
Insight: The 20-year-old is averaging 15 ppg during that span. If he can keep his scoring in double digits, he'll be a solid fantasy option due to his contributions in rebounds (6.1 rpg), blocks (1.4 bpg) and steals (0.7 spg).
 
11/6/2013 10:04:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist produced averages of 15 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in his last two games.
Insight: The 20-year-old still has a limited offensive game but he doesn't need to score a bunch to make him a decent fantasy option. He contributes positively in rebounds, blocks and steals.
 
10/28/2013 8:07:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (hamstring) practiced Monday, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer. He should be ready to go for Wednesday's season opener at Houston.
Insight: The 20-year-old Kidd-Gilchrist is still a raw talent offensively which will hold back his fantasy value. He averaged 9.0 points, 5.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.9 blocks in 78 games as a rookie. MGK made 281 field goals last season; 221 came 10 feet away from the basket or closer. He'll need to show improvement to hold off Jeff Taylor, who had a strong summer and preseason.

Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist strained his hamstring Thursday against the Cavs. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist finished with six points and three rebounds before leaving. It's not a serious injury and he should be ready to go for Wednesday's season opener at Houston.
 
4/3/2013 2:00:00 PM
Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is probable for Wednesday's game against Philadelphia.
Insight: He's a low-end fantasy value averaging 9.1 ppg and 5.6 rpg in his rookie season, but he has a bright future.
 
4/2/2013 10:35:00 AM
Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist didn't play on Monday night against the Bucks due to a family issue.
Insight: We're not sure what Kidd-Gilchrist's status is going forward but for now, we'll label him as questionable for Wednesday night's matchup against the Sixers. He's a low-end fantasy value averaging 9.1 ppg and 5.6 rpg in his rookie season, but he has a bright future.
 
4/1/2013 7:38:00 PM
Description: Charlotte small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist won't be on the court Monday night against the Bucks.
Insight: MKG has a family matter to attend to. We're not sure what Kidd-Gilchrist's status is going forward but for now, we'll label him as questionable for Wednesday night's matchup against the Sixers.
 
3/23/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 11 points, three rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 20 minutes Saturday against the Pistons.
Insight: Kidd-Gilchrist has just two double-digit scoring games in his last eight contests, and both have been for 11-point efforts. Fantasy owners should move on from the rookie until next year.
