Charlotte Hornets small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is no given to be ready to play in Wednesday’s NBA season opener against the Pistons in Detroit. Kidd-Gilchrist has been away from the Hornets for about a week, tending to an excused personal matter. Coach Steve Clifford said Sunday Kidd-Gilchrist might not be ready to start – or even play – in the team’s first regular-season game.
If Kidd-Gilchrist is unavailable, Clifford could move Marvin Williams from power forward to small forward, and start Frank Kaminsky at power forward. However, Clifford said Sunday he could also start Jeremy Lamb, back from a groin injury, at small forward and rookie Dwayne Bacon at shooting guard.
Peter Vecsey: “Harrison’s the kind of guy who will remember that forever,” said someone who knows him extremely well. “He still holds a grudge against the teams that didn’t draft him.” Especially the Charlotte Hornets! Michael Jordan’s team opted for Kentucky’s Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2 over Barnes, who played in state at the University of North Carolina.
