  • Reax: Hornets shutdown Orlando at home; win 104-94

    By Staff on December 5, 2017
    The Charlotte Hornets entered Monday night’s game against the Orlando Magic at an interesting crossroads. The team, which had lost four in a row, was five games under .500, and near the middle of the pack in terms of both offensive and defensive efficiency. Making matter more intriguing, head man Steve Clifford was unable to coach tonight due to an […]

  • Nic Batum has torn UCL in left elbow

    By Staff on October 5, 2017
    Queen City Hoops’ own Spencer Percy broke the news this afternoon that Hornets starting guard Nicolas Batum tore his UCL. The injury means he will be out for a significant amount of time, but there are conflicting reports as to just how long that will be. Batum injured his left elbow one minute into Wednesday’s preseason game against the Detroit Pistons […]
  • Hornets Sloppy in Preseason Opener

    By Staff on October 3, 2017
    Game Summary First off, before we hit on the game, let’s take a moment to acknowledge: the NBA is back, and that’s so awesome.

  • ’17-’18 Player Forecast: Frank Kaminsky

    By Staff on September 22, 2017
    Position: Forward/Center Height: 7’0’’ Weight: 242 pounds Frank Kaminsky, the No. 9 pick back in 2015, enters his third season in the NBA on year three of his rookie deal, thanks to Charlotte exercising his third-year option last October. He will make around $2.85 million this season — not a bad price. Kaminsky isn’t an expensive player, and he does […]
  • ’17-’18 Player Forecast: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

    By Staff on September 13, 2017
    Player Forecast on Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Position: Small forward Height: 6-7 Weight: 232 Reasons for Optimism: I’m not sure there’s a more polarizing player on Charlotte’s roster than sixth-year forward Michael Kidd Gilchrist. Charlotte’s prize of the 2012 NBA Draft, MKG is both a source of pride for parts of the fanbase — a defensive-mind forwarded that’s plays his ass off […]

    By Staff on January 6, 2017
    A source close to the team has told Spencer Percy, Managing Editor of Queen City Hoops, that Nic Batum has “no structural damage” and “everything was clean” in his right knee. Batum is expected to be out 1-2 weeks. Batum injured his right knee during the third-quarter in Detroit last night when he and Roy Hibbert got their legs caught […]
  • Hornets end preseason with a thud in Minnesota, lose 109-74

    By Staff on October 23, 2016
    The Hornets faced the T-Wolves in their seventh and final preseason matchup tonight, and not much went right for the teal and purple. With a starting lineup missing Nic Batum (rest) and Marvin Williams (broken finger) the team looked out of sorts to start, clearly missing the two veteran’s play-making and movement. Marco Belinelli was aggressive on offense in his […]
  • Bright Spots Among Sloppy Play in Hornets Preseason Opener

    By Staff on October 4, 2016
    Coming into the 2016-17 NBA season, the Charlotte Hornets are an enthusiastic group and why not? They are coming off a season in which they won 48 games and pushed the Miami Heat to seven games before bowing out in the first round of the playoffs.

  • RECAP: Hornets Hang Around But Raptors Too Much

    By Staff on April 15, 2015
    I think we all knew how this one would go. It’s pretty valiant that the Hornets made the Rockets and the Raptors play four quarters to end the season. That’s pride and that’s something you can build off of in the offseason. Let’s have a look at how things ended in year one of the Hornets return. The Raptors started […]
