Gary Neal SG CHA 8 Days

Neal (hamstring) returned from a two-game absence and scored nine points (4-11 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT) in 14 minutes in the overtime win against Pacers on Saturday.

The Hornets were without Kemba Walker (knee), so they needed Neal's offense off the bench. If Walker remains out, Neal could get more points to get on the fantasy radar.

Neal (hamstring) will play against the Pacers on Saturday.

Neal has been dealing with a hamstring injury of late but returned to practice Friday and will indeed come off the bench Saturday. With Kemba Walker (knee) already ruled out, Neal is expected to serve as the backup point guard behind Brian Roberts.

Neal (hamstring) returned to practice Friday.

Neal has been sidelined for the past two games but he seems to be in line for a comeback against the Pacers on Saturday. If he does in fact play, expect limited production as he's only averaging 22.9 minutes on the court over 32 games this season.

Neal (hamstring) will not play Wednesday against the Spurs, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Neal has been battling a hamstring strain for the past two weeks and will miss his second straight game after sitting Saturday against New York. His absence should free up more minutes for Jeff Taylor and P.J. Hairston off the bench. Consider Neal questionable to play Saturday when the Hornets face Indiana.

Neal (hamstring) scored 11 points (5-16 FG, 1-7 3Pt,) with three assists in 24 minutes in the loss to the Cavaliers on Friday.

Neal was a game-time decision with a tight hamstring. The injury didn't affect his ability to hoist shots, but he has been struggling from 3-point range (just 11.1 percent in his last five games). If Neal can start knocking down 3-pointers, he could have some fantasy value.

Neal (hamstring) will play Friday, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.

His minutes have been up and down of late, but he has only scored in double figures in two of the Hornets' last seven games, so there is definitely some volatility here.

Neal (hamstring) will be a game-time decision Friday against the Cavaliers, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

Neal, who was previously considered questionable for Monday's game against Milwaukee, was limited during Friday morning's shootaround. He ended up playing both Monday and Wednesday, but it seems that the hamstring strain is still lingering. If Neal can't play Friday night, his absence could lead to added minutes off the bench for Brian Roberts and P.J. Hairston.

Neal (hamstring) scored seven points (2-8 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) to go along with four rebounds in 15 minutes Monday against the Bucks.

Neal is capable of the occasional breakout performance, but largely has a limited role off the bench for the Hornets. He doesn't carry significant fantasy value at this time.

Neal (hamstring) is active for Monday's contest against the Bucks.

Despite a strained right hamstring, Neal will tough out the concern as a reserve, which may hinder his ability to log his normal run (24 minutes per game) on the season. However, the Hornets' wing remains without Lance Stephenson (pelvis), meaning Neal may be forced into action.

Neal is dealing with a right hamstring strain and is questionable for Monday's game, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.

He has failed to score in double figures in three straight games, shooting just 4-for-26 from the field over that span. However, if Neal plays, he should figure prominently in the Hornets' guard rotation.
