Injury Update: Tests at hospital reveal a rib contusion for @hornets Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. He is day-to-day.— Charlotte Hornets PR (@HornetsPR) November 3, 2014
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist will miss the rest of tonight's game against the New York Knicks. He is off to get a CT Scan.
@hornets #MKG is out remainder of game. Leaving MSG to get CT scan— Stephanie Ready (@StephanieReady) November 3, 2014
This was a strange development throughout the game. After playing some great basketball, MKG took a hard fall battling for a loose ball. There was a very loud thump when he hit the ground, and he remained on the ground for a little while. After awhile, he stood up, and looked okay except for a mark on his arm/shoulder area. He even played effective, with some good offense, and even better defense. But then Kidd-Gilchrist came out of the game.

I've just been told MKG is getting a CT scan of his chest— Stephanie Ready (@StephanieReady) November 3, 2014
A CT scan of MKG's chest could be a multitude of things. Looking at his ribs, lungs, etc. I'm not sure what they're looking for, but I think I speak for everybody when I wish him a fast recovery of whatever may be ailing him.
