Hornets G Lance Stephenson a late scratch Monday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) 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.


Hornets' Lance Stephenson ruled out Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) Hornets guard Lance Stephenson is not expected to play Friday.

Stephenson injured his groin Thursday and will need more time to recover. The team will also be without Gerald Henderson for the contest.


SG Lance Stephenson added to list of sidelined Hornets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) 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
(10/1/2014) 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."


Lance Stephenson set for bigger role in new setting


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/17/2014) Though there were fits and starts, Lance Stephenson finally began to live up to his considerable promise last season. Now in a new home in Charlotte, will Stephenson take another step forward in 2014-15?

By the end of last season, the Pacers were a mess, and Stephenson caught plenty of the blame for that. Still, he might have been arguably the team's most consistent player throughout the season, averaging between 25.8 and 29.7 Fantasy points per game from before and after the All-Star break as well as the playoffs. For as much of a mess as that team was, Stephenson emerged as something of a rock, at least for Fantasy purposes.

The Hornets are actually built in a somewhat similar way to the Pacers, so there wont' be much of a stylistic shift for Stephenson to get used to. Per MySynergySports.com, 11.8 percent of the then-Bobcats' possessions ended in post-ups, actually down from the 13.2 percent mark the Pacers' posted. Stephenson struggled at times with his post-entry passing, though his off-target feeds might find their mark more often when being lobbed in to the soft hands of Al Jefferson, as opposed to Roy Hibbert.

The Hornets might lean even more heavily on Stephenson than the Pacers did, since Indiana liked to spread the ball around with their starting five. The Hornets, on the other hand, look to be extremely top-heavy, and Stephenson will get plenty of chances to be the second or third option. We have him projected for 29.1 Fantasy points per game, and consider Stephenson a borderline top-50 Fantasy option for this season.  


Lance Stephenson inks three-year deal with Charlotte


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/16/2014) Looks like Lance Stephenson won't be heading back to Indiana, as the Charlotte Observer reported early Wednesday that the fifth-year guard agreed to a three-year, $27 million deal with the Hornets.

The third year of the contract is a team option. Charlotte watched Josh McRoberts leave for Miami and then got matched in pursuit of restricted free agent Gordon Hayward, leaving them to offer Stephenson to stay competitive.

He averaged 13.8 points, 7.2 rebounds and 4.6 assists per game in a breakout season last year. 


Report: Pacers, Lance Stephenson at a standoff in negotiations


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(7/2/2014) The Pacers went to great lengths to convince guard Lance Stephenson they wanted to re-sign him -- even renting out a movie theater to show him a custom film about why. But a report from ESPN early Wednesday suggests it wasn't enough.

Apparently Stephenson wants more than the five-year $44 million Indiana is offering and will see what other teams can do for him. The report lists the Lakers, Bulls and Hornets as other interested teams. 

It's not surprising that Stephenson wants better compensation considering he led the Pacers in both assists and rebounds last season on their way to the Eastern Conference Finals. He'll turn 24 years old before the start of next season.


Pacers resting three starters Wednesday


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Indiana starters Paul George, Lance Stephenson and David West will all take a seat Wednesday for the last game of the season, according to the team website.

The Pacers have locked up the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, so coach Frank Vogel has decided to give some of his guys the night off before the playoffs start.


Lance Stephenson posts fourth triple-double


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Pacers guard Lance Stephenson helped his team come one step closer to clinching the top seed in the East on Sunday, notching a triple-double in a 102-97 win over Oklahoma City.

Stephenson scored 17 points on 7 of 10 from the floor, including 2 of 5 from downtown, and 1 of 2 from the free throw line. He chipped in with 11 assists, 10 rebounds and one block while logging 41 minutes of game action. He has four triple-doubles this season. He is averaging 9.3 points, 5.5 boards and 4.5 assists over his last four games.

Rest over: Pacers starters back in action Friday


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(4/11/2014) Frank Vogel's plan to rest his starting five was short-lived, as ESPN reported Friday that Paul George, Roy Hibbert, David West, Lance Stephenson and George Hill will take the floor against Miami.

This doesn't come as a surprise with the Pacers now clinging to a one-game lead over the Heat atop the Eastern Conference standings.


Pacers resting all five starters Wednesday


by Joe Polito | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2014) The Pacers will go ahead with their plan to rest key players heading into the playoffs, as the Indianapolis Star reports that Roy Hibbert, David West, Paul George, Lance Stephenson and George Hill will all take a seat when what's left of the team plays Milwaukee Wednesday.

Coach Frank Vogel had said that Indiana would employ this tactic, but it will be interesting to see if the rest continues on Friday when the Pacers take on Miami, the team just inches ahead of Indiana for No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference. 


Lance Stephenson tossed with two technicals


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) Pacers guard Lance Stephenson let his emotions get the better of him Wednesday, as he earned an ejection following a pair of technical fouls against the Heat.  

Stephenson earned his second technical for taunting after hitting a tough layup in the fourth quarter, finishing his game after 33 minutes of work. He finished with 15 points on 6 of 12 shooting, while adding two rebounds and two assists in a game the Pacers went on to win, 84-83.

Stephenson has picked up 14 technical fouls on the season, leaving him two short of a mandatory one-suspension. That is about all he has done wrong in a career year that has seen him average career highs across the board. He is averaging 14.2 points, 7.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game heading into free agency.


Lance Stephenson carries Indiana past Philadelphia with 25 points


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) Pacers guard Lance Stephenson shouldered the load on Monday, scoring a team-high 25 points in a 99-90 win over Philadelphia.

Stephenson shot 8 of 16 from the floor, including 1 of 6 from downtown, and 8 of 9 from the free throw line. He also chipped in with five rebounds, one assist and one steal while logging 38 minutes of game action. He is averaging 16.2 points, 7.2 rebounds and 3.0 assists over his last five games.

Lance Stephenson gets on the boards


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Pacers guard Lance Stephenson has been hitting the boards extra hard recently, and he snagged nine rebounds in a 98-96 loss to the Warriors Tuesday.

Stephenson struggled with his shot, missing all four of his 3-pointers and shooting just 6 of 14 from the field en route to 12 points. He made up for that poor showing by grabbing nine rebounds and dishing out three assists, while also adding a block and two steals in 38 minutes.

 Stephenson continues to put together by far the best season of his career, right before he becomes a free agent for the first time. He is averaging 14.0 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game over the last five.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Stephenson struggled with his shot, but still filled up the box score nicely as usual. He ended up with 10 points on 5 of 15 shooting, but chipped in 10 rebounds and four assists in 37 minutes in the 104-91 loss.

Stephenson is putting together by far the best season of his career, and has remained remarkably inconsistent. He is averaging 13.3 points, 7.6 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game in eight February games.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2014) Pacers guard Lance Stephenson was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Hawks in the third quarter, after suffering a back injury on a scary-looking fall.
