Michael Kidd-Gilchrist F CHA 5 Days

Kidd-Gilchrist scored 13 points (4-8 FG, 5-8 FT) with 11 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in Saturday's win against the Jazz.

Kidd-Gilchrist stuffed the stat sheet on Saturday and flashed the potential that Charlotte has been looking for since they drafted him No.2 overall in 2012. Still, he's likely the fourth option on offense most nights, and will need to earn consistent minutes and improve his jumper before becoming a reliable fantasy option. Consider him a deep league utility option for the time being.

Kidd-Gilchrist will return to the starting lineup Monday versus the Cavaliers, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist returned from a foot injury Wednesday against Boston but has come off the bench in his three games back, with coach Steve Clifford citing conditioning as the reason. After playing 28 minutes against Brooklyn on Saturday, Kidd-Gilchrist has been deemed ready to reclaim his starting spot, and he'll be tasked with guarding LeBron James. Gerald Henderson will likely return to the bench, as Lance Stephenson slides back to shooting guard.

Kidd-Gilchrist will continue coming off the bench at least through Saturday's game, as he is still working on regaining his game conditioning, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.

Coach Steve Clifford said Kidd-Gilchrist was gassed after playing 19 minutes in Wednesday's game, so for now owners should probably avoid using him in daily leagues. Look for Gerald Henderson to continue to start next to Lance Stephenson on the wing in the short term.

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) returned to the court Wednesday, scoring nine points (3-6 FG, 3-3 FT) with six rebounds in 19 minutes off the bench.

Gerald Henderson kept his spot in the starting lineup and played 26 minutes, but MKG was able to outproduce him despite less court time. Kidd-Gilchrist could remain on the bench in the short term, but eventually he should be able to move back into the starting five.

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) took part in Tuesday's practice and has a chance to play Wednesday, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist hasn't played in nearly a month while dealing with a stress reaction in his right foot. While his presence at Tuesday's session is very encouraging, a final decision on his status for Wednesday's matchup with the Celtics isn't likely to come until after morning shootaround. Prior to the injury, Kidd-Gilchrist averaged 9.8 points and 5.5 rebounds in 23.3 minutes per game, starting all six contests in which he appeared. If the Kentucky product doesn't play Wednesday, his next opportunity will come Friday against Memphis.

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) will not return until next Wednesday at the earliest, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.

We had been waiting for a timetable on MKG, and now we have one. Gerald Henderson and P.J. Hairston should continue to see plenty of run with Kidd-Gilchrist sidelined. Consider him questionable for next Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) will not play Wednesday against the Bulls, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist will miss his 11th straight game as he continues to battle a stress reaction in his right foot. He's without a concrete return timeline, so continue to evaluate his status on a game-to-game basis until the team releases a more detailed report. With Gary Neal (shoulder) and Marvin Williams (shoulder) both considered questionable, Gerald Henderson should be in line for major minutes Wednesday.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist F CHA 1 Month

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) could miss extended time, as team doctors are currently not allowing him to jump, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist has already missed four games with a stress reaction in his right foot, and it appears the team is being very cautious with his recovery. A return timetable has not been provided, but at this point it's difficult to imagine Kidd-Gilchrist returning any time in the immediate future. That means Gerald Henderson will likely continue to start at small forward, with Gary Neal seeing increased minutes off the bench.

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) won't play in Friday's game against the Magic, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Kidd-Gilchrist has been sidelined for three games already with a stress reaction in his foot, and Friday's game will make it four. Gary Neal (concussion), who is expected to return and Gerald Henderson (started Wednesday) would be the top candidates to start in his absence.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist F CHA 1 Month

Kidd-Gilchrist (foot) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.

It will be the third straight absence for Kidd-Gilchrist, who's dealing with a stress reaction in his right foot. Coach Steve Clifford started Gerald Henderson in Kidd-Gilchrist's place in Monday's blowout loss to Dallas, and that will likely be the case again Wednesday, as Gary Neal (concussion) has been ruled out, and P.J. Hairston (ankle) is doubtful.
