ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) Hornets coach Steve Clifford said forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist was taken to the hospital for further evaluation Saturday night after injuring his right shoulder in Charlotte's 106-100 exhibition win over Orlando.

Kidd-Gilchrist was curling off a screen late in the second quarter when he tumbled to the ground after absorbing a foul by a Magic player. He stayed down for several seconds, and got up holding his shoulder. He was immediately helped to the locker room.

Clifford said that the injury put a damper on an otherwise productive preseason opener for the new-look Hornets, but didn't have an update on his status beyond him going to the hospital.
