Michael Kidd-Gilchrist likely to miss season

Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will undergo shoulder surgery and likely miss the entire season, a league source told Yahoo Sports. Kidd-Gilchrist is expected to miss six months with the injury, which wouldn’t allow for a possible return until the final weeks of the season in April. It leaves little hope that Kidd-Gilchrist can return to the lineup this season. Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a separated right shoulder in Saturday’s preseason victory over Orlando, and an MRI on Monday in Charlotte revealed the need for surgery. Kidd-Gilchrist, 22, signed a four-year, $52 million contract extension in September.

Me: What is different about the offense that will benefit the personnel you have? Jimmy Butler: Spacing. I think offense is a lot about spacing. Last year, at times, our spacing was terrible. We might get a basket out of it, just because we’ve got really good players. Now, with the spacing we have, there’s going to be more driving gaps for people that drive the ball good. It’s all about that spacing. It’s going to make things easier for everybody. And, you’re going to know where everybody’s going to be on the floor. When you drive baseline, you know there’s going to be a guy over there in the drift spot. You know there’s going to be a guy over there in the slot. So if everybody pays attention and gets to the right spot, it’s almost like you can pass the ball without even looking.
