Good chance Marvin Williams plays Monday in Washington.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams (concussion) will not play tonight vs. Nuggets. P.J. Hairston (sprained ankle) likely will play.

Rick Bonnell

So Heat and Nets both lose in the race to see who can be vaporized by the Hawks first round.

Rick Bonnell

Burning NBA question: Did @KC Johnson actually get to Phoenix???

Rick Bonnell

The final score of Heat-Mavs is remarkable. Miami might as well have gone to the showers fourth quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Mavs are so dangerous offensively. Spread a 7-point lead to 15 so fast.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets were about to lose ground to both Nets and Heat and still might. But Heat down 7 and Nets in OT.

Rick Bonnell

I suspect the Hornets will play well Saturday. You could sense an energy at practice today.

Rick Bonnell

The 76ers sweep a season series the same night the Hawks have a legit sellout...The NBA, where amazing happens.

Rick Bonnell

It took a long time for Hassan Whiteside to get his act together. But, man, is he gonna get paid.

Rick Bonnell

Marvin Williams is such a gracious person. I waited 1/2 hour after practice to ask about his concussion. He was articulate and detailed.

I had an interesting chat with Marvin Williams today about his concussion. Turns out it was his third. Story posting later.

Rick Bonnell

Sounds like a good chance Marvin Williams (concussion) will be cleared to play Saturday vs. Nuggets.

Rick Bonnell

PJ Hairston sprained his left ankle at practice. Does not appear serious.

Rick Bonnell

Kings' DeMarcus Cousins gets the nod to replace Kobe Bryant in All-Star Game.

Bismack Biyombo

I'm always up for challenge.. That one thing that no one will ever take away from me!! #Godwill good night people

Rick Bonnell

I'm watching Bulls-Lakers on non-HD in Denver hotel. Feel like it's Boston-Phoenix with Rick Robey.

Rick Bonnell

Three or four East teams are trudging to the finish line for last 2 playoff spots. Hornets musts going forward: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/29/548…

Rick Bonnell

Oh, goodie: Another Lakers national telecast! @Baxter Holmes

Rick Bonnell

Eastern head coaches did right thing voting in Hawks' Horford, Teague and Millsap as All-Star reserves.

Gerald Henderson

#TBT this pic was probably from a couple Thursday's ago but s/o to my boy _kw15 aka "young bul" aka… instagram.com/p/ydO8D4RLSk/

Cody Zeller

I might've missed a couple notes but the effort was there!!!! My stomach hurts from laughing at this video! youtu.be/6rYW4SJ8RMY

Rick Bonnell

So based on Dwyane Wade's comments to South Florida media, he could be out nearly as long as Kemba Walker.

Gerald Henderson

Pulling for @TigerWoods this week in the PHX Open. Who's the favorite?

Rick Bonnell

A strong third quarter helped Hornets keep it close against the Spurs: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/28/547…

Bismack Biyombo

Tough game tonight! Learn and move on.. #ontothenextone #Godwill

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said Marvin Williams' headaches have abated, so he can start the concussion protocol as soon as tomorrow.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Spurs 95, Hornets 86

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson draws a T, his fifth this season.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson has matched his season high with 14 rebounds.

Rick Bonnell

Spurs get out in transition; a two-point lead expands to 12 with just under nine minutes left.

Rick Bonnell

Lance Stephenson is 0-of-5 from the field tonight.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Spurs 69, Hornets 64. Quite a quarter of defense for the Hornets to get back in the game.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts sure thought that was a flop by Patty Mills.

Rick Bonnell

Spurs lead down to two now on Al Jefferson's layup.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets have trimmed what was an 18-point deficit to six.

Rick Bonnell

That Brian Roberts bucket was the Hornets' first made 3 of the night, four minutes into the second half.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson playing quite well tonight. He's pushing the tempo and finding Al Jefferson in the post.

Rick Bonnell

Third foul on Big Al early in second half.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Spurs 55, Hornets 38. Hornets have taken three 3s, missed them all.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets certainly have no answer for Tony Parker, no matter who has guarded him.

Rick Bonnell

Two sloppy Hornets possessions set up back-to-back 3s from the Spurs, who lead 33-19 with 10:39 left in the half.

Rick Bonnell

Tony Parker already has nine points on 4-of-6 shooting. Spurs big men such good passers the guards get lots of layups off cutters.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston coming in next dead ball.

Rick Bonnell

Clifford said Hornets making a concerted effort to run more of their offense through Lance Stephenson in Kemba Walker's absence.

Rick Bonnell

Second foul on Al Jefferson. Here comes Jason Maxiell.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson not settling tonight for mid-range jumpers. Much more aggressive posting up.

Rick Bonnell

AT&T Center is pretty empty 12 minutes before tip-off. Guess the Hornets on a Wednesday night isn't much of a draw.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford said pre-game no team in the NBA is better than the Spurs at exploiting opponent mistakes.

Rick Bonnell

Veteran a group as the Spurs are, Pop might have a point regarding his own team.

Rick Bonnell

The Spurs didn't have shootaround this morning. Gregg Popovich said pre-game a lot of times shootarounds are a waste of time.

Rick Bonnell

How long has it been since Bobcats/Hornets won in San Antonio? Last victory Adam Morrison went off for 27 points in November of 2006.

Rick Bonnell

Spurs just signed former Charlotte Bobcat Reggie Williams to a 10-day contract. He'd been in the D-League of late.

Rick Bonnell

Shelby's Alvin Gentry, lead assistant for the Golden State Warriors, will coach the USA team in the rising stars game.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets' Kemba Walker has successful knee surgery, will miss at least 6 weeks: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Format for that game, involving rookies and second-year players, will be USA vs. the World this time.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets' Cody Zeller will play in the rising stars game at All-Star Weekend in New York.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets announce Kemba Walker had successful knee surgery. He'll be out a minimum of six weeks.

Kemba Walker

Thanks to Dr. Altchek and Dr. Williamson for a successful surgery. Special thanks to every1 at @hspecialsurgery @javonphillips and @excelsm

Rick Bonnell

I was told tonight David Lee is the solution to the Hornets' problems. Ummmm. He makes $15,4 million next season.

Rick Bonnell

I'm staying up to watch Chicago-Golden State despite a 9:17 flight to SA. This is terrific basketball.

Rick Bonnell

Here is what bothers me about @nbatv highlights: They talked about the Heat throughout. And, incidentally, the Bucks won.

Rick Bonnell

Interesting Kobe quote from @Michael Lee story about Jordan: "He obviously was a championship-or-bust man.”

Rick Bonnell

Papers having national NBA writers a quaint notion. Terrific story by @Michael Lee is why they still should exist: washingtonpost.com/sports/wizards…

Charlotte Hornets general manager Rich Cho: You can't squander the future for a quick fix today. charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/27/547…

Rick Bonnell

Fast Times at Ridgemont High and The Replacements both on tonight. Decisions, decisions.

Rick Bonnell

Dwyane Wade has left the Heat game with more hamstring troubles. You sense Heat, Hornets and Nets will stagger to finish line this season.

Rick Bonnell

Had a chat with Cho today. Story coming later on-line. Will send out a link.

Rick Bonnell

Rich Cho and Steve Clifford told me they'll see how things go (Pargo's recovery, Neal as the backup point) before any possible roster move.

Bismack Biyombo

Never go to @Boris Diaw house__ is on a serious diet , most important thing there is nothing.. Only water and coffee!! #thisishappening

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Hornets rookie Noah Vonleh inching closer to meaningful playing time? charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/27/547…

Rick Bonnell

I'm jumping on @ESPN730 at 1:45 to talk Hornets with Marty Hurney.

Rick Bonnell

Based on Clifford's comments, it sounds like Hornets won't immediately try to add a point guard.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Jannero Pargo is still at least a week away from playing.

Rick Bonnell

We used to have an expression for Superstorm Juno in Syracuse; May.

Rick Bonnell

I mean this kindly: I got many Seth Curry questions on Twitter today. Anyone who thinks Seth would help the Hornets short-term at PG...

Rick Bonnell

ICYMI; Brian Roberts -- right or wrong -- says he's ready for this. He's been through the drill: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Rick Bonnell

ICMYI: Kemba Walker will have knee surgery Wednesday. The news and the ramifications: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Bismack Biyombo

Just want to Thank each and everyone for your support.. It's tough to watch games on the other side! Thanks again #newChallenge #Godwill

Rick Bonnell

I keep getting asked about Seth Curry. If the Hornets make a roster move, I'd think it would be for a more experienced point guard.

Rick Bonnell

Jannero Pargo (sore back) has participated some in practice. Steve Clifford said Pargo will up his load this week, then be re-evaluated.

Rick Bonnell

One of what I'm sure will be numerous guards who'll be connected to the Hornets: A.J. Price.

Rick Bonnell

If Hornets add another point guard, they would have to cut another player unless the league gave them a 16th roster-spot exception.

Rick Bonnell

The Hornets have had a single game this season when all 15 players were available to be activated. This Kemba surgery is the latest hit.

Rick Bonnell

Brian Roberts says he's up to a long fill-in for Kemba Walker. He did just that for Jrue Holiday last season: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets coach Steve Clifford said this morning the team could add another point guard if Kemba Walker is out long.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets point guard Brian Roberts suddenly becomes the starter at his position. He knows the drill: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker to have knee surgery Wednesday. The news and the ramifications: charlotteobserver.com/2015/01/26/547…
