Bobcats' Kidd-Gilchrist, day-to-day with a foot injury, to miss Friday's game

November 29, 2013 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Bobcats Coach Steve Clifford said forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will sit out Friday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Clifford said Kidd-Gilchrist spent Thursday with his foot in a boot and that last year's No. 2 overall draft pick out of Kentucky wasn't able to participate in Friday morning's shoot around.

It's unclear how long Kidd-Gilchrist will be out. Clifford says he'll be evaluated on a day-to-day basis.

Clifford said Jeffery Taylor will get the start and the seldom-used Ben Gordon will also see action.

Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 9.5 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Taylor is averaging 8.8 points and 2.4 rebounds per game as a reserve.

Bucks Coach Larry Drew said former Kentucky standout Brandon Knight is healthy enough to start his second straight game. He re-injured his right hamstring in the team's season opener and has played sporadically since.
