The workouts will be particularly helpful to two players, Kelly Oubre Jr. and Frank Kaminsky, who had their rehab processes halted. General manager James Jones described those players as “stuck” at a certain point in mid-April because of the team’s inability to work them through the recoveries first-hand.
Gina Mizell: James Jones said Kelly Oubre Jr. (meniscus surgery) and Frank Kaminsky (patella stress fracture) have both medically healed, but "kind of pressed the pause button" because they can't do full-blown sports rehab. If season resumes, Jones is optimistic they'd be able to play. #Suns
Phoenix Suns forward Frank Kaminsky III has been sidelined indefinitely with a right patella stress fracture, the team announced Saturday. Kaminsky has not played for the Suns since Dec. 28, missing three games.
Gina Mizell: #Suns announce reserve big man Frank Kaminsky has been diagnosed with a right patella stress fracture and is out indefinitely. He had missed the past two games (and had been on and off recent injury reports) with knee “soreness.” He’ll be re-evaluated in approximately four weeks. pic.twitter.com/FCUtWXyXMI
Rick Bonnell: Frank Kaminsky (sprained ankle) and Jeremy Lamb (shin contusion) available to play. With Batum out, I’d think Lamb starts, with Dwayne Bacon his backup.
Clay Bailey: Hornets have announced that Frank Kaminsky, who was questionable with illness, will play tonight vs. Grizz. Did not play vs. ORL on Sunday
A Charlotte Hornets public relations official told CBS Sports that Queen City Hoops’ report was inaccurate and Frank Kaminsky did not have an MRI on Monday. Queen City Hoops also tweeted an apology, reporting that Kaminsky could in fact be back in the lineup as early as this coming weekend. This is obviously fantastic news for the Hornets, who need the big man to be available as they try to get back in the playoff picture.
Managing Editor of Queen City Hoops, Spencer Percy, has learned from a source close to the team that Frank Kaminsky will “likely” miss the remainder of the season with what the Hornets have called a sprain to the AC joint in his left shoulder.
An MRI was performed today in Charlotte, and although it is unknown whether or not Kaminsky will need surgery to repair any significant damage in his left shoulder, it is expected for the team to eventually announce that he will be shut down for the rest of the ’16-’17 season.
Horners center/forward Frank Kaminsky, who sprained his shoulder in Phoenix last week, won’t play and is being examined Monday in Charlotte. Coach Steve Clifford said Saturday that he expects Kaminsky to be out 10 to 14 days.
Frank Kaminsky: Surgery was #Lit and I'm alive and stuff so that's pretty cool. Thank you to everyone for wishing me well.

Mirjam Swanson: Ty says Kawhi is a “little down” because he wanted to be there for his guys … adds that there’s no potential return, waiting for testing and “go from there.”
Ohm Youngmisuk: Told that people are counting the Clippers out now with Kawhi Leonard out, Ty Lue said, “I’ve been counted out my whole life… not really worried about the chatter. We were counted out in the first series as well.”
Andy Larsen: Mike Conley just wrapped up his pregame workout, which didn’t feature much movement at all… some light shooting and dribbling, but not much that would give Jazz fans optimism.
