Kidd-Gilchrist reinjures right shoulder

VIDEO: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist injures shoulder against Pacers

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist of the Hornets dislocated his right shoulder after hitting the floor Wednesday night in Indiana — the same shoulder that cost him the first 46 games of the season.

There was no immediate word how long Kidd-Gilchrist would be out this time.

He had surgery in October to repair a torn labrum and was expected to miss most or all of the season, only to return Jan. 29. In his first six games back, the small forward known for his defense averaged 13.5 points and seven rebounds in 31 minutes a night while shooting 52.6 percent.




    From the video it looks as if MKG left shoulder should be the one injured. Hopefully it is nothing more than a shoulder strain. MKG was playing well and is needed. I am a firm believer players injured for more than 40 games should stay out the remainder of the season and continue to rehab. Statistics show players who rehab injuries for longer than expected come back free of re-injuring themselves.

    Man I feel sorry for MKG, he’s a good guy and really made a difference to the Hornets when he returned to court. Hope it’s not too bad and he gets back on court sooner than later.

  3. Tommi says:

    This is a shame. I was wondering when he got back that wasn’t he predicted to miss the whole season? And then of course he’s unfortunate to tear some ligaments again (guess). I feel sorry for him. But maybe this time, Hornets and MKG will rehab the shoulder longer. Because this is benefiting neither Hornets nor MKG. He’s a solid developing player that has a place in the NBA. Get well (soon but not that soon)!

  4. Thats what you get for rushing back to the court
