Kidd-Gilchrist totaled 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block in 34 minutes during Monday's 116-103 victory over the Thunder.

EDGE Analysis

Kidd-Gilchrist came to play Monday, chipping in across the board. He finished with season-high totals in both assists and steals, while adding a very efficient 17 points. He has been better of late, displaying some of the upside that we know he has. While he won't deliver big scoring numbers like this every night, he is worth an add in most leagues as a player who can contribute across the board.

Kidd-Gilchrist managed just three points (1-8 FG, 1-1 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 21 minutes in Saturday's 106-86 loss to the Spurs.

EDGE Analysis

One night after a solid 17-point effort against the Cavaliers, Kidd-Gilchrist could barely find the net Saturday. The 24-year-old's scoring total was his second lowest of the campaign, and his minutes allotment was his lowest since Oct. 27. The six-year veteran continues to provide inconsistent offensive production but remains a steady source of rebounds, hauling in at least four boards in nine of his last 12 games.

Kidd-Gilchrist totaled 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-4 FT) and five rebounds across a season-high 37 minutes of action in a 100-99 loss to the Cleveland cavaliers on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The 17 points marked MKG's second-highest total of the season, as he also set a season-high with 15 shots taken and 37 minutes played. The only issue is the lack of defensive statistics, as he's averaging just 4.4 rebounds and 0.5 steals per game for the season. That's simply too low from a player who specializes in defense, but he's due for some positive regression if he continues to see 30 minutes a game.

Kidd-Gilchrist (ankle) has been cleared to play for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

EDGE Analysis

Kidd-Gilchrist was originally listed on the injury report as probable with a right ankle sprain, though apparently is feeling well enough to play after the team's morning shootaround. Over the past three contests, he's posted 13.0 points and 5.0 rebounds across 28.3 minutes per game.

Kidd-Gilchrist is probable for Saturday's game against the Clippers due to a right ankle sprain.

EDGE Analysis

Kidd-Gilchrist likely suffered the injury during Friday's game against the Bulls, though still played 27 minutes -- nothing unusually low for him. More word on his status should emerge closer to tipoff. On the off chance he misses the game, Jeremy Lamb and Dwayne Bacon would probably be the main beneficiaries.

Kidd-Gilchrist contributed 22 points (10-14 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 115-107 loss to the Cavaliers.

EDGE Analysis

Kidd-Gilchrist was impressive on both ends of the court, and he continues to provide more efficient scoring this season than we've grown accustomed to seeing from him over the years. He managed season highs in scoring, steals, and made field goals, and Kidd-Gilchrist is easily the team's most versatile and capable defender. As a result, he's likely to see similar minutes moving forward despite the return of Nicolas Batum (elbow).

Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) posted eight points (4-6 FG) and five rebounds across 27 minutes in Friday's 90-87 loss to the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

MKG made his return after a three-game absence and checked in third on the first unit in scoring against a tough Celtics defense. The 24-year-old hasn't had a chance to get into a rhythm as of yet in the new season, as he's missed a total of six contests. If he can remain in the lineup for an extended stretch, he's capable of providing decent returns in the areas of scoring, rebounding and field-goal percentage.

Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) will play and start in Friday's game against the Celtics, but his minutes load is still yet to be determined, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kidd-Gilchrist has missed the last three games to attend a personal matter he's dealt with since the preseason, but he is set to return to the floor Friday in what will likely be a limited capacity. Dwayne Bacon is expected to return to the bench upon Kidd-Gilchrist being inserted back into the starting five, but he should still play a fairly significant role off the bench.

Head coach Steve Clifford said he intends to play Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) against the Celtics on Friday, Rick Bonnell of The Charlotte Observer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kidd-Gilchrist rejoined the Hornets on Wednesday after briefly stepping away from the team following the passing of his grandmother. It sounds like the 24-year-old is trending towards a return after missing the team's previous three games, though Clifford noted he'll wait until after Thursday's practice to make that determination.
