Gary Neal scored eight points off the bench on Monday, hitting 3-of-10 shots (including a three) with two rebounds, six assists and one steal in 29 minutes.
The Scoop:Neal is somebody to watch with Lance Stephenson in trade rumors and the Hornets' lacking depth on the wing. He has had some trouble staying on the floor himself, but has been productive in spurts this season.
Gary Neal scored 25 points off the bench against the Grizzlies on Friday with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.
The Scoop:He played down the stretch and coach Steve Clifford seems to like using Neal when his team is behind. He played 30.0 minutes per game in his two games before an injury back on Nov. 24, so maybe Neal gets minutes in the low 20s. Of course, he's still not an option in most leagues until he strings together a few games.
The Scoop:We'll have an official word on Neal's status after his pregame workout, but it's looking like he'll give it a go. Neal can offer some scoring, solid free throw shooting, and 3-pointers for owners in deeper leagues. Stay tuned.
The Scoop:Head coach Steve Clifford said that he hopes Neal will be able to play his usual allotment of minutes, so deep league owners looking for some points and 3s should go ahead and grab him as he has a favorable matchup tonight vs. the Knicks.
