  • Hornets' Kobi Simmons: Sees limited time

    Simmons concluded his third season with averages of 1.0 points, 1.0 assists, 0.8 rebounds and 0.4 blocks in 5.6 minutes per game across five contests.

    After signing with the team March 29, Simmons appeared in very limited fashion over the last five games of the season. The 25-year-old was a steady contributor during his limited opportunities, but he struggled to find his shot, making just one of six attempts from the field on the year. Simmons has struggled to find his footing in the NBA since his rookie season back in 2017, and it will be challenging to find a spot with the Hornets, who have plenty of guard depth.

  • Hornets' Xavier Sneed: Plays only four games

    Sneed ended his second season with averages of 4.3 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 12.0 minutes per game across four contests.

    Sneed joined the roster March 28 and was featured in four of the team's final five games. The 26-year-old was solid in his limited role, making 50 percent of his shots from the floor, 50 percent of his three-pointers and knocking down all four of his free-throw attempts. It's difficult to project a spot on the roster for Snead moving forward with the wing depth the Hornets already have.

  • Hornets' Cody Martin: Showing good progress

    Martin said Monday that he doesn't have a timetable to return, but his knee is improving, Rod Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.

    Martin appeared in a total of seven games this season and had arthroscopic left knee surgery back on Nov. 11. Martin doesn't anticipate needing any more procedures during the offseason, so it doesn't sound like his status for training camp will be in jeopardy.

  • Hornets' Mark Williams: Ends season with career day

    Williams logged 22 points (9-10 FG, 4-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two blocks and one steal across 30 minutes during Sunday's 106-95 win over the Cavaliers.

    Due to ankle and thumb injuries, and the Hornets being well out of the playoff picture, Williams played in only six of the last 14 games of the season. However, he capped the year with one of his best performances. The 22-point game was his best of the season, coupled with 10 rebounds for his 11th double-double. The Hornets' center also blocked multiple shots in a game for the first time since Feb. 15. Williams ended his rookie year averaging 9.0 points, 7.1 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game, but he played in just 43 contests over the season.

  • Hornets' Bryce McGowens: Posts season-high 22 points

    McGowens accumulated 22 points (6-11 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 9-10 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 33 minutes during Sunday's 106-95 win over the Cavaliers.

    As the season came to an end, McGowens got plenty of opportunities. He started the final six games of the year while averaging 30 minutes. In those six contests, McGowens averaged 14.7 points on 48.3 percent shooting. The rookie cleared the 20-point plateau for the first time in his career, as he tied with Mark Williams for the team high Sunday. McGowens will have to fight for a bigger role next season in the Hornets' rotation.

  • Hornets' Theo Maledon: Finishes season strong

    Maledon totaled 18 points (7-13 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, six assists and one steal in 42 minutes during Sunday's 106-95 win over the Cavaliers.

    Maledon filled up the box score, as he tied for the team high in assists and posted the second-most rebounds Sunday. Maledon was a top-100 fantasy player in nine-category leagues over the last two weeks of the season. He started the final six games of the year and averaged 14.8 points, 9.5 assists and 5.2 rebounds. Maledon did drop below 30 percent from three for the season, limiting his value. However, if Maledon can find consistent minutes, he has shown he can produce in multiple categories.

  • Hornets' Dennis Smith: Won't play in regular-season finale

    Smith (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Cleveland.

    As expected, Smith will miss a sixth straight game to end the 2022-23 campaign. Across 54 appearances (15 starts), the sixth-year point guard averaged 8.8 points, 4.8 assists, 3.1 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 25.7 minutes per game during his first season with the Hornets.
