It was announced during the game. 

 

Bobcats lead Dallas by 3 late in the 4th quarter.... 

 

 

Edit: Wanted to add official sources.

Indication is MKG broke his hand driving to the rim in the third quarter. About six minutes into the second half.

 

#bobcats say MKG's fractured left hand will be re-evaluated tomorrow in Charlotte. I don't know when he was hurt.

 

 

Edit:  It's confirmed that he will miss between 4-6 weeks, so he'll be back sometime in early to mid January.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist became the latest former Kentucky star to be sidelined four to six weeks with a broken left hand.

The Bobcats announced Wednesday that Kidd-Gilchrist, the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NBA draft, suffered a non-displaced fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his left hand during Tuesday night's game at Dallas.

Yep, changes the complexion of the starting lineup a bunch. Especially defensively. 

 

as for the game... 

 

Bobcats loose a 12 point lead over the last two quarters and now trail by 5 with roughly 1 minute left in the game.

Probably out 4-6 weeks on the low side just like Anthony Davis.

I feel like we would have won if MKG was out there last night.

Sucks. Hopefully he'll come back aggressive and try to prove something. This offense is killing his future, IMO. He's not that bad of an offensive player but Clifford is telling him to just stand in the corner and stay out of the way.

So the next question is..does clifford play a hendo/taylor sg-sf combo or more gordon/hendo?  Regardless, we'll probably see more Gordon over the next 4-6 weeks.

    • maybe but I doubt it would be the same...given Putin actually hates Hillary.  So there could be some money junk worth looking into but not on the Trump scale and not. 
    • With the depth of this draft, I have no problems going after more picks.  I am of leery of moving up to get guys when you end up having to sell the farm.  I know Gettleman loves to say he'd rather have quarter than two dimes, so I think that's going to be a part of this draft. Then again, if we can get two impact players, a couple of contributors, can we call this a failure?  Only time will tell.  According to the draftniks like Mayock (who'se up for the Redskins job) say you can get a 2nd round pass rusher in prior years drafts in the 4th.  Seems to say to me that moving up may not have as much value as we think.
    • But Russians are the enemy, or at least 100 days ago. Why should that change so much?  Anything to undermine the President at the time. To bad racism can't be used as a defense.
