Good news comes is hard to come by these days, so finding out that your fractured thumb isn’t, in fact, fractured is news any of us would take.

And that’s just what Malik Monk found out today after further review revealed no fracture. Monk is now listed day-to-day, which dramatically moves up his recovery time.

There’s no word as to whether he will play again in Summer League, and my bet is on no for precautionary reasons, but Monk should be to fully practicing sooner than later.

The Hornets ended the preliminary rounds of the Las Vegas Summer League with a 100-80 loss to the Boston Celtics. They finished 2-1, and will find out their opponent later tonight. Their winning record should give them a higher seed, but how far they go in the tournament will likely depend on how much playing time the core players continue to get.
