Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) ruled out Monday

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (illness) has been ruled out for Monday’s game against the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact

MKG was a healthy scratch the past three contests and has been ruled out for Monday’s game. The former second overall pick has no fantasy value and can be left on waivers. MKG’s next chance to return will be Wednesday against the Raptors.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist sports only five points against the Cavaliers

Charlotte's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3PT), grabbed two boards, dished out one assist, and had one block across 13 minutes of action in Wednesday's 100-98 loss to Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact

It's been four games in a row now since Kidd-Gilchrist put up deep fantasy league relevant numbers. He should be ignored completely in all fantasy leagues' free agent pools moving forward.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist ends up with points in the double figures

In Wednesday's 113-108 win over Brooklyn, Charlotte's Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-3 3PT, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, and one block in 20 minutes.

Fantasy Impact

It was nice to see Kidd-Gilchrist put up notable fantasy numbers again since it's been a while for him but it's unlikely to continue since his role off of the Hornets' bench doesn't give him an ample volume of minutes. He's best to leave in all fantasy leagues' free agent pools for the the time being.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist picks up player option for 2019-2020 season

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has opted into his $13 million player option for the 2019-20 season.

Fantasy Impact

Kidd-Gilchrist is recovering from groin surgery, but is expected to be ready for training camp. His role was reduced last season, as he averaged less than 25 minutes minutes per game for the first time in his seven-year career. Kidd-Gilchrist averaged 6.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 0.5 steal, and 0.5 block in 64 games last season. He is proven to be a solid defender, but is a non-factor in fantasy.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) out on Sunday

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will not play on Sunday versus the Detroit Pistons for personal reasons. Dwayne Bacon and Miles Bridges will pick up more minutes.

Fantasy Impact

With MKG out, Jeremy Lamb gets a boost and Bridges and Bacon are both at least DFS worthy on Sunday.
