Update: Kidd-Gilchrist (shoulder) expects to be ready to go for the start of next season, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.
Analysis: Kidd-Gilchrist underwent the second of two surgeries to repair a torn labrum in February, after missing all but seven games during the 2015-16 campaign. He's progressed to the point in his rehab this summer where he's now able to do some shooting, lifting and running, so it appears Kidd-Gilchrist is well on his way to being ready for the start of next season. We'll likely hear more regarding his recovery when training camp nears, but look for him to jump right back into the Hornets' rotation in his first year of the four-year, $52 million contract extension he received back in August.
Kidd-Gilchrist could miss the remainder of the season after re-tearing the labrum in his right shoulder.
Kidd-Gilchrist, who missed the season's first four months recovering from a torn labrum in the same shoulder, suffered the injury Wednesday at Indiana. The Hornets have yet to determine whether he'll rehab the shoulder in hopes of returning later this season or if he'll undergo another surgery. Kidd-Gilchrist played in just seven games following his return, averaging 12.7 points and 6.4 rebounds.
