    Happy 2018!

    The injury report currently shows Cody Zeller out for the Hornets, with Fox expected "to be out until Jan. 2" and Mason as a "game time decision." This could easily be updated tomorrow. Some reports, including an article linked in the Kings News Links, says Fox and Mason will both be out.
    Here's hoping the Kings start off 2018 with heart, hustle, energy and effort - and the ability to hit the water from the boat, something that seemed to be missing for most of the game against the Grizzlies.

    I sure hope Frank Mason didn't mess up his ankle/heel too badly.

    GO KINGS!

    since the Kings are down to one PG now, let's try Bogs at the PG experiment for a bit.

    We may not have much choice. I wouldn't be surprised to see WCS at the point-forward, to be honest. Desperate times call for desperate measures. ;)

    Oh good, Z-bo has his ball boy back!

    No word on Giles, I take it?

    Thanks, VF21! Bummer we have to wait longer for Giles.

    Anyways, he's my lin-nuetral prediction for the night:

    I think Joerger is going to bring Fox off the bench as he's coming back from injury. I also think we're going to see a return of "week 1" Fox, and he'll have a great game running with the reserves.

    I'm actually going to the game tonight. My cousin's driving down to see the G1C and is treating me.

    Hopefully they don't suck too bad. :p

    Looks like Fox is starting. Hopefully your prediction about "week 1" Fox will hold, though.

    After that Howard running hook, Skal yelled pretty angrily at Z-Bo, but I couldn't tell exactly what he said.

    Skal has two nice putbacks already.

    Was hill in the game or was he just doing his lackadaisical pass it on the perimeter thing?

    Damn, Fox's speed plays.

    Skal seems to be doing well. So, probably no minutes for him in the 2nd half.

    Carter-Williams shooting .259 from the field? How is he in the league getting steady run?

    Started at the FT line after a defensive breakdown. Buddy went up to ZBo and seemed to be the aggrieved party.

    Not sure if it was about defense or offense, but they were talking all the way back to the other side of the court.

    I am not sure what Charlotte is trying to do with this roster.

    Fox is special but i don’t know why he insists on passing up every shot

    Well, at the moment they're beating what Vlade slapped together.

    Hah, yeah that is true. Dwight posting with success and the Kings running the high post offense. Seems like we just entered 2008 watching this.

    But overall, they brought in Dwight to pair with Frank, Kemba, Batum, and Marvin Williams. Lamb off the bench. 13-23 and Malik Monk has a long way to go to seeing the court consistently it seems. Charlotte might win tonight, but I'm not sure I'd take their roster/situation over the Kings.

    Buddy with a couple threes, good look from Fox to get him the ball on that last one
