After five years under 0.500, the Hornets took an important step forward in the last NBA season. A major reason for this progress is absent now and the numbers will be for the foreseeable future – perhaps longer.

Miles Bridges faces a preliminary hearing in Los Angeles court Friday, after he was arrested June 29 on felony domestic violence charges. He pleaded not guilty on July 19 to assaulting his girlfriend in front of their two children. He is charged with one felony of harming the father of a child and two felony counts of child abuse under circumstances or conditions likely to cause significant bodily injury or death.

Regardless of the court case, Bridges could face a lengthy suspension from the league if there is evidence of abuse.

While this is a much more serious matter than basketball, the Hornets are trying to sort things out. Bridges led Charlotte in scoring and was second in recovery last season. The club, which notably includes two ex-Celtics, played the game and is hoping to go into a veritable streak of first-round and beyond this year – hope made even more difficult not to know when, or if, Bridges will have.

“He sure had a great year for us last year,” veteran Hornets striker Gordon Hayward told Heavy Sports. “It’s a big part of what we did last year.

“I think guys are still trying to figure out their own games and trying to figure out a way to move forward, whether he’s going to be with us or not. You just have to keep going. I think things like that happen, guys miss long periods of time, and you kind of have to move on.”

“None of us know exactly what’s going on with that. I hope whatever’s supposed to happen with that. I don’t know many details. I think a lot of us don’t know many details, so it’s kind of hard to comment on that.”

Terry Roosier still believes in the future of the Hornets

As for the idea that the Hornets were ready to make the leap this season, goalkeeper Terry Roser said, “We are still.”

shook his head.

“It’s part of the NBA, man,” Roser Heavy said. “You have to accept the things that happen. You have to live with the things. Sometimes you have to be without people, and that’s exactly what it is. It’s part of the NBA.”

“You know, this is my brother. We definitely miss him. We’re going to let this thing play. I don’t want to talk too much about it, but we wait for him when things are fine. Other than that, we don’t use that as a distraction. We have our team here, and that’s what we work on.” with him”.

According to Rozier, the club, which is now led prominently by the LaMelo Ball, still has some positives to build on.

Rozier: Boston always plays the right way

As for what would be better, he said, “I would definitely say they have more experience together, but we really want to create an identity now. We want to play the right way. We want to be a strong team, and that’s what we’re trying to do. We’re trying to build that now, so I think That this will be different from us this year, and our sense of urgency there.”

Kind of like his former team, the Celtics.

“Facts,” Rozier said. “Boston has always played the right way – since I was there and before that, and it’s building that even now. That’s why it’s a special organisation, a special team. That’s what we have to do, and we have to do it with the guys out there.”
