Initially listed as questionable due to an ankle injury before Friday’s game against the Pistons, McGowens now appears more likely to play according to recent updates from the Hornets camp.
Previously, McGowens was considered doubtful and ultimately ruled out on Wednesday.
His upgraded status is a positive indicator of his potential availability for Friday’s game.
Should McGowens be able to take the court, the absence of Cody Martin, who is dealing with knee issues, may provide him with increased playing time.
Furthermore, for tonight’s matchup, Cody Martin (suffering from left knee soreness), James Bouknight (left knee), and Frank Ntilikina (dealing with a tibia fracture) have all been declared unavailable.
