Hornets’ Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Suffers Tear in Shoulder
Charlotte Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is out again... after suffering torn labrum in his surgically repaired right shoulder, the team announced Thursday.
The tear was revealed in an MRI that was scheduled after the team's game on Wednesday, with what the team called a dislocated shoulder. Now, the Hornets will re-evaluate him after the All-Star break.
Kidd-Gilchrist has been limited to just seven games this season, since having surgery on the shoulder. He's averaging 12.7 points, 6.4 rebounds and 1.3 assists.
He had surgery for a torn labrum in his right shoulder on Oct. 6, just months after he signed a $55 million contract extension. It occurred in the team's first preseason game at Orlando on Oct. 3 when he landed awkwardly on the shoulder.
