Charlotte Hornets guard Terry Rozier (knee) won't play in Wednesday's preseason game against the Detroit Pistons. He's dealing with a left knee issue, but most likely is just a precautionary move. Devonte Graham and Dwayne Bacon should see more minutes without Rozier. He should be fine for the regular season and is worth targeting in the middle rounds of most standard drafts.
Charlotte Hornets forward Nicolas Batum (Achilles) suffered an injury on Wednesday and could be shut down for most of the preseason. He did some pre-game work on Friday, but continues to deal with the right Achilles issue. However, the Hornets are rebuilding, so a veteran like Batum doesn't have great value on that organization. He could be a risky option to draft even in 12-team standard leagues to begin the season.
Charlotte Hornets guard/forward Nicolas Batum (Achilles) has been ruled out for Friday's preseason contest against the Philadelphia 76ers. Batum exited early on Wednesday because of right Achilles soreness. There is no reason to believe that this is going to be a lingering injury for Batum. However, he's a veteran player on a rebuilding Hornets team. He's probably someone only worth looking at late in fantasy drafts. Malik Monk and Dwayne Bacon will see more minutes most likely without Batum on the floor during Friday's contest.
Charlotte Hornets guard Malik Monk (toe) will play during Wednesday's preseason matchup against the Miami Heat. Monk missed the summer league, but is ready to show that he improved since last season. This very well could be his last chance to prove he can be an impact player in the NBA. The Hornets are desperate for scorers, so Monk needs to prove his value. Monk is worth a look towards the end of most drafts because he does have some upside in Charlotte.
Power forward/center Frank Kaminsky has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal worth $10 million to join the Phoenix Suns, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Kaminsky spent his first four years in the league as a member of the Charlotte Hornets, averaging 9.8 points and 4.0 rebounds per game. After intermittent stints in the starting five, Kaminsky appeared in 47 games last season, all of which came as a reserve. The 26-year-old will have to battle with the also newly-acquired Dario Saric for room in Phoenix's frontcourt alongside Deandre Ayton, but his minutes per game average of 16.1 from last season figures to increase with his inclusion in the Suns' offense.
