The Charlotte Hornets have upgraded forward Miles Bridges (elbow) from probable to available for Wednesday's contest versus the Chicago Bulls. A left elbow contusion clouded Bridges' availability a bit on Wednesday, but Charlotte has officially given him the green light to suit up, and he hasn't sat out since Dec. 18. The 25-year-old playmaking forward is playing top-50 ball in nine-category fantasy leagues this year, averaging 20.9 points, 7.3 rebounds, 3.1 assists 2.3 threes, and 1.1 steals in 34 games for the Hornets. Although Wednesday's matchup carries the lowest implied point total (214.5) of the nine-game slate, Bridges belongs in all season-long lineups,.
Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges (elbow) is considered probable for a game against Chicago on Wednesday. The 25-year-old is dealing with a left elbow contusion, but the injury isn't expected to keep Bridges out of action. Bridges has put together a very strong stretch of games recently and will go for an eighth consecutive game with 20-plus points on Wednesday. He's also logged three double-doubles during his recent scoring surge.
Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges will become a free agent following the 2023-24 NBA season and is expected to be a prominent name in trade talks until the Feb. 8 deadline. Bridges missed all of last season and served a 10-game suspension to start this year due to a domestic-violence case, but he is currently among the 10 or more players on the Phoenix Suns' radar. If traded, Bridges would lose his bird rights, meaning teams cannot go over the salary cap to pay him, and he can also veto any trade. The Suns don't have the cap space to retain him in the offseason, but Bridges could provide a significant boost for their title run this season. He is currently averaging 20.8 points, 7.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 36 minutes per game.
Charlotte Hornets forward Miles Bridges was denied entry into Canada due to his current legal situation. The Hornets are going through the process of trying to get that decision reversed ahead of Monday's game against the Toronto Raptors. Bridges' availability on the court to begin with is a controversial topic among NBA fans, after the 25-year-old missed all of 2022-23 and 2023-24's first 10 games due to a 2022 domestic violence case. Bridges also has a court date scheduled on Feb. 20 for the alleged violation of a protection order related to the incident. Bridges is playing top-50 fantasy ball, though, averaging 19.6 points, 7.2 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.4 steals in 36.1 minutes across 14 games. Charlotte's rotation might be a mess on Monday, but Brandon Miller could get plenty of DFS attention and JT Thor would likely handle more playing time if Bridges can't get the go-ahead.
