News: Stephenson (groin) scored seven points (3-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2FT) with 13 rebounds and 8 assists in 40 minutes Wednesday. Impact: The groin injury that forced Stephenson to miss a couple preseason games appears to be a thing of the past, which was evident by the wing leading the team in minutes. His rebounding and assist totals are little higher than expected for the rest of the season since the game went to overtime, but his shooting numbers should improve going forward.(RotoWire, )

News: Stephenson (groin) took part in Tuesday's practice but remains questionable for Wednesday's opener against the Bucks, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports. Impact: The update on Stephenson's status comes courtesy of coach Steve Clifford, but the fact that he was able to practice in full Tuesday is certainly a positive indication heading into Wednesday's matchup. A decision likely won't come until Wednesday, so continue to check back for updates prior to game-time. If Stephenson can't go, expect to see a heavy dose of Gary Neal, who turned some heads in the preseason, in the Charlotte backcourt.(RotoWire, )
