News: Maxiell will have his contract guaranteed for the remainder of the season, Sportando reports.
Impact: Maxiell has been on a non-guaranteed contract this season, but the Hornets will make the call to fully guarantee his deal for the remainder of the season. The former Cincinnati standout has played valuable minutes of late with Al Jefferson (groin) out, logging at least 16 minutes in each of the team's last four games. While he's not much of an offensive threat, Maxiell is a solid rebounder and adequate interior defender, despite his lack of size.

News: Maxiell played a season-high 29 minutes and provided three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 FT) and eight rebounds in the win over the Magic on Saturday.
Impact: Maxiell had only played garbage minutes in December before Al Jefferson (groin) went down. He has averaged 22.3 minutes for 5.0 points and 5.3 rebounds in his last three games. The veteran power forward could be of use for rebounds in deeper leagues.
