2018 Fantasy Outlook
Touted as a scorer out of college, Monk didn't appear comfortable during his rookie campaign, shooting just 36.0 percent from the field and averaging 6.7 points across 13.6 minutes. He also didn't do well as a distributor, totaling 49 turnovers with only 91 assists. It wasn't all bad, however, as the Kentucky product racked up five games with at least 20 points, including a 26 point, eight-assist outburst against the Magic in early April. Heading into his age 20 season, Monk should continue to play a reserve role at point guard, though the addition of Tony Parker into the mix complicates Monk’s route to minutes. The continued presence of both Nicolas Batum and Jeremy Lamb at shooting guard will also make it difficult for Monk to garner run at that position. There’s still reason to be optimistic about Monk’s upside as a player, but this season may not be the best time to invest from a Fantasy perspective. Read Past Outlooks

Avoids fracture, considered day-to-day

Thumb
July 10, 2018
Updating a previous report, Monk has avoided a fracture of his right thumb and is now considered day-to-day with a sprain.
ANALYSIS
Monk was diagnosed with the fracture over the weekend and was handed a recovery timetable of 6-to-8 weeks. However, after being re-evaluated at some point over the last few days, tests revealed that he has actually avoided a significant injury. The Hornets haven't revealed an updated timetable and are instead listing him as day-to-day, which suggests a return may not be far off. Monk was playing with the Hornets' summer league team prior to suffering the injury, though even if he does get cleared in the near future, it seems unlikely Charlotte will risk his health further by letting him rejoin the action. Look for additional updates to be provided as Monk moves through the recovery process.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
One of the most exciting players in college basketball last season, Monk teamed with fellow-freshman De'Aaron Fox to lead Kentucky to the Elite Eight. While Monk fell out of the top 10 on draft night, he landed in a favorable spot in Charlotte, where he'll be relied upon for bench scoring as a rookie. Monk is still developing as an overall offensive player, but he's already an outstanding three-point shooter, equally comfortable pulling up off the dribble as he his shooting off the catch. With Jeremy Lamb ahead of him on the depth chart, Monk's role will likely be somewhat limited in Year 1, but he should be a fixture in the rotation and could be used on the ball, at times, particularly if offseason addition Michael Carter-Williams struggles out of the gate.
