Gary Neal was ejected for two technical fouls against the Pacers on Thursday night.
The Scoop:He was just 1-of-11 from the field for six points, three rebounds, six assists and two turnovers. Neal had a big start to his preseason, but he shot just 12-of-46 (26.1 percent) from the field in his last four. He'll be a low-upside guy off the bench this season.
Gary Neal came out of nowhere to put up 21 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in Monday's preseason game against the Hawks.
The Scoop:Neal has had a solid preseason but this is ridiculous. He hit 7-of-17 shots (2-of-4 from deep and 5-of-6 from the line) in his 36 minutes, and if fantasy owners in deep leagues want to bump him up their cheat sheets they can go for it. But expecting Neal to be a standard league producer when Gerald Henderson returns is still a bit optimistic.
In 21 minutes off the Hornets bench on Sunday, Gary Neal scored six points with seven rebounds, three assists and four turnovers.
The Scoop:Neal was red-hot in his first four preseason games but has since gone cold, and his reality as a fantasy option lies somewhere in between. As long as the Charlotte's starting backcourt is healthy, there's no reason to give him any thought him in typical formats.
Gary Neal finally cooled off with four points on just 2-of-12 shooting with three assists and six turnovers in a 31-minute start on Friday.
The Scoop:Neal wasn't breaking down any doors with his preseason surge but in deeper formats he has been well worth watching. He started tonight, but will come off the bench when the games start to count.
