Charlotte Hornets: West coast blues

The Charlotte Hornets have struggled against teams from the Western Conference in recent years and this season has been more of the same. Charlotte lost 17 of its 30 games against the West in 2013-2014, yet still made the playoffs in the East.  This season, the Hornets have a 1-6 record against teams from the West.  Fresh off a five game stretch against West teams (four being out in the Pacific time zone), the Hornets will gladly welcome some games closer to home.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Injury: Updates on Hornets Forward’s Foot and Return

Beating the Dallas Mavericks is hard enough as it is. The Charlotte Hornets will try to take down the Mavs on Monday without one of their best players.

Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reported that Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will be absent with a stress reaction in his right foot:

Through six games, Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 9.8 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.3 assists a night. His shooting has improved by leaps and bounds so far, with his percentage up nearly 150 points to 62.5.

Charlotte’s had a somewhat disappointing start to the season, and that’s unlikely to change as long as Kidd-Gilchrist is absent.
