F - CHA - OUT
Mason Plumlee has entered the NBA’s health and safety protocols.
The Hornets sent players and staff home after concerns related to positive Covid testing. In a subsequent move, they also placed LaMelo Ball, Jalen McDaniels, and Terry Rozier in the health and safety protocols.
Mason Plumlee (calf strain) has been ruled out ahead of the Hornet’s tilt on Wednesday against the Bucks.
It appears that Plumlee has not yet been able to recover from the calf strain that caused him to miss the Hornets last three games which will now be four games without an appearance. Calf strains can take weeks to heal so this could be a week-to-week situation but for now all that is known is his unavailability Wednesday.
Mason Plumlee (calf) will be out of the Hornets lineup on Sunday as they take on the Houston Rockets.
Plumlee has already been ruled out ahead of time for tomorrow’s tilt against the Rocket’s. P.J. Washington started at center last night when Plumlee was out and it will likely be the same again on Sunday.
Mason Plumlee totaled seven points (2-3 FG, 3-3 FT), grabbed eight rebounds, two assists, one block, and turned the ball over once in the Hornets’ 106-99 victory over the Magic on Wednesday.
Plumlee grabbed eight rebounds, seven points and blocked a shot in his 21 minutes on Wednesday. He is now averaging 6.8 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and one block per game. Plumlee is a decent streaming candidate as a source of rebounds in deeper leagues and averaging one block per game, although he does come with some risk.
Mason Plumlee totaled five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 FT), grabbed six rebounds, three assists, one steal, one block, and turned the ball over four times in the Hornets’ 121-118 win over the Pacers on Friday.
Plumlee played 25 minutes in the Hornet’s win on Friday, scoring only five points and turning the ball over four times. He started the season as a decent source of rebounds, although he has been volatile in that category as well. You can probably deal with the ups and downs in deeper leagues because he does deliver streamer-worthy rebound value but be prepared for unproductive nights.
