The Charlotte Hornets have played 25 games so far during the 2022-23 season and have a record of 7-18. The team has been incredibly unlucky with injuries this season, specifically with ankle sprains.
The players impacted by injuries include LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, Gordon Hayward, Cody Martin, and Dennis Smith Jr. The slow start could definitely be attributed to the team’s health and lack of player availability.
However, with just over a quarter of the season played, there is still time for this team to turn it around and get healthy. Even though the Hornets have only won seven games so far, there are some positives as well as some negatives for this team so far in 2022. There have been some players that have been nice surprises this season and some that have been letdowns so far.
