They just announce today that he has been reinstated. Still no details on what he got popped for, other than 'drugs'. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/charlotte-hornets/article243362941.html
He would have been eligible to play if the Hornets were one of the 22 Disney World invitees. Sounds like he will be good to go for the start of next season.
Thats good to hear.
I imagine most fans on here are done with Monk, but I still think he has a shot at being a good player. Hes still only 22 and showed improvement in multiple areas this year. His 3pt% tanked this year despite noticeably better shot selection (ft% also noticeably dipped), which could be a concern, but given his good mechanics and history of being able to make shots when he isn't chucking up nonsense, I feel like there is a good chance his outside shooting rebounds and potentially rounds out his improving offensive game.
If he made 3 pointers and free throws this season at the same rate as his first two seasons his scoring numbers would be 10.95 ppg on 45.7/33.8/87(56.6 ts%) shooting splits. Hopefully the decline in 3pt% and ft% is a fluke, or the result of him adjusting to added bulk/strength, and not a long term issue.
