Lance Stephenson was a late scratch Monday night against the Hawks in preseason action because of more groin soreness.

Stephenson has been dealing with a variety of ailments this offseason but is expected still to be ready to go for the regular season. Fantasy Alarm's Mark Kaplan suggests targeting Stephenson (located in the third tier of shooting guards) in the fourth or fifth round, but before you do, keep a close eye on these injuries. It's very possible that he slips even further because people are nervous about his health.

Lance Stephenson and Marvin Williams will not play on Monday.

Teams are going to rest their starters before the start of the regular season. Stephenson is slated to open the season as the starting shooting guard for Charlotte while Williams is the projected starting power forward once he gets over a minor elbow contusion.

Kemba Walker (knee) will play on Friday.

Walker left Monday's game with a knee bruise and sat out of Wednesday's matchup as a precaution, but the issue is minor and he'll play on Friday. The Hornets may limit his playing time, but he looks to be behind the issue and good to go.

Lance Stephenson and Gerald Henderson are out for Friday night's exhibition against the Wizards.

Both players are dealing with hamstring issues. Stephenson hurt his during Thursday's practice and Henderson had a setback with his earlier in the week. Consider both players day-to-day as the lub tries to get them healthy for the start of the regular season.

Kemba Walker (knee contusion) is a game-time decision following Friday's warmups.

Walker is actually questionable for Friday's game and is likely to not play as the Hornets probably don't want to risk anything if they don't have to. He took part in warm-ups and the team just wants to see how his knee responds before throwing him into a game situation, but chances are, another game off would be more beneficial if there is concern.

Gerald Henderson (hamstring) had a setback this week and may not play Friday or Sunday.

It's best to work out those kinks now before the season begins. Henderson may rest through the weekend and look to return sometime next week. He averaged 14 points and 2.6 assists last season.

Kemba Walker will miss Wednesday's preseason game vs. Pistons due to left knee contusion suffered in Monday nights game.

Walker left Monday night's game against the Magic with a knee contusion and will now sit out Wednesday's game. The fourth-year pro is looking to build off of his solid 2013-14 season where he averaged 17.7 points and 6.1 assists per game.

Kemba Walker will not return to Monday night's preseason game vs the Magic due to a left knee contusion.

No reason for him to come back in a preseason game. He is the top man on the depth chart at point guard for the Hornets and they are going to need his presence in the regular season, not the preseason.
