Hornets C Cody Zeller, G Lance Stephenson both ailing
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/22/14) Hornets center Cody Zeller skipped the contact portions of Wednesday practice while teammate and guard Lance Stephenson skipped the session altogether, leaving them uncertain for the Thursday preseason game against Indiana.
Zeller is dealing with a hand issue. Stephenson has a groin injury.
Hornets G Lance Stephenson a late scratch Monday
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(10/20/14) Hornets guard Lance Stephenson was a late scratch Monday night against the Hawks in preseason action because of more groin soreness, the Charlotte Observer reports. Stephenson returned from the injury Sunday, so it appears as if the team is taking a cautious approach with their newly-acquired shooting guard.
The Hornets will open the season Oct. 29 at home against Milwaukee.

SG Lance Stephenson added to list of sidelined Hornets
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/16/14) Hornets shooting guard Lance Stephenson sustained a groin strain in practice Thursday that added to the team's mounting injury list, the Charlotte Observer has reported.
Charlotte could be without three backcourt standouts Friday at Washington. Gerald Henderson (hamstring) and Kemba Walker (knee) are already down.
Hornets starting lineup shaping up as Stephenson, Williams assigned roles
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(10/1/14) Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Monday he plans to start Marvin Williams at power forward ahead of Cody Zeller and Lance Stephenson will start at either small forward or shooting guard, according to the Charlotte Observer.
With center Al Jefferson and point guard Kemba Walker also securing spots in the starting lineup, the final spot will come down to shooting guard Gerald Henderson or small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.
Clifford is really excited about the potential Stephenson brings to the lineup.
"I’ve been around Kobe (Bryant) and (Tracy) McGrady and (Latrell) Sprewell in his prime. Lance isn’t there yet," Clifford said. "Lance was 13 1/2 (ppg.) last year. He’s young and talented. His efficiency shooting the ball, getting his turnovers down (need to improve). For us to talk about him as a legitimate All-Star player who we can play through, that’s the jump he needs to make and he knows that."
|Picking up Lance Stephenson early in the year might have been one of the best free-agent decisions you could have made in Fantasy last season. His production peaked between Weeks 7 and 9, when he averaged 38 Fantasy points per game over that 21-day span. As the Pacers declined after the All-Star Break, so too did Stephenson's numbers, but he was still useful to the end. This year, he'll be on another slow, defensive-minded team in Charlotte, but there's a good chance he'll be even more of a focal point on offense. He'll replace Josh McRoberts as the Hornets' unorthodox distributor and won't have Paul George to concede shots to on the wing. Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson will still command touches, but, if anything, Stephenson has shown a knack for being useful even when the game plan has nothing to do with him. He's still a risk, but he'll be worth an early-to-mid round pick this year because of his upside and opportunity.
