Going to be really concerned if MKG is out again due to "personal reasons"

Why? It's freaking Friday the 13th and we lost him for pretty much an entire season due to a preseason injury once before. We're down Batum for at least two months already, we can't afford to lose him as well for a meaningless preseason game.

There's also the possibility that he has family or a friend in need. And if that's the case in addition to the above my advice if I was MJ, Cho, or Clifford would be "take all the time you need."

I’m fine with MKG saving himself for the season opener. Plus it’s the last preseason game. Need to figure out what young players will stick on the roster and who will be let go or sent to the Swarm. There are some promising players who might be able to help.

Plus let’s let Monk and Bacon get a little more burn. They’ll both be playing come next week, I am confident in that. Even Bacon.

Let's just make it out of this game with no more injuries. I don't care if the team plays no defense at all and shoots 3s all game. We can't afford to lose any players right now with Batum and MCW sidelined.

Looks like it. Let's hope he is ready for the season opener.

Apparently you can stream the game if you're within 75 miles of the arena: https://www.nba.com/amp/hornets/hornets-vs-mavericks-10/13/17

I tried setting up a VPN to position myself in Charlotte, but it still says I'm not in the area.

I know it worked because I can get local Charlotte channels on my phone (and I just tripped my home alarm because it thinks I'm no longer home), so I'm not sure what the issue is.

Thanks for that, and this just highlights how dumb the Hornets blackout rules are. Those of us more than 75 miles from Charlotte have been able to watch streams from Detroit and now Dallas but not one from within the state.

Monk seems to have pretty good vision for finding teammates, just that it's often second to finding his own shot.

Based on Twitter comments, this is apparently blocking out everyone. Saw Freedom Park, Ballantyne, and someone that said they're two blocks from the arena all saying they're not in range.

I would like to see a little of Isaiah Hicks. Winning is not the object here.

How does Monk end up guarding Dirk?
