Charlotte Hornets wing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist has been sidelined by an injured hamstring since he came up limping after chasing down a loose ball in the Hornets’ game against the Philadelphia 76ers on Feb. 7. An MRI before the All-Star break revealed no permanent damage, and Charlotte has eagerly awaited MKG’s return since receiving the good news.

According to a tweet sent out today by the Charlotte Hornets, Kidd-Gilchrist will almost certainly be back in the lineup for this Saturday’s game against the OC Thunder!
