CHARLOTTE (KAIT) - A Lepanto native is back in The Association.

Charlotte Hornets guard Malik Monk returned to action over the weekend after missing a month with a severe ankle sprain. Monk had 11 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists, & a steal Saturday in a Hornets win over the Pistons.

He followed that with 11 points & 5 assists Sunday night but Charlotte fell to Miami. The Hornets (31-33) are 8th in the East with 8 games to go. The 7 through 10 seeds in each conference make the NBA Play-In Tournament.

Monk’s next game is Tuesday night at Detroit.
