ORLANDO, Fla. -- X-rays on Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist were negative but revealed a dislocation of his right shoulder after Kidd-Gilchrist left Saturday night's 106-100 exhibition win over the Orlando Magic, the team announced.
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.
Kidd-Gilchrist was taken from the arena to a hospital to undergo X-rays and other tests.
A member of Kentucky's 2011-12 national championship team, Kidd-Gilchrist will remain in Orlando and will not play in Sunday's game against the Miami Heat. He is scheduled to undergo further evaluation by the team's medical staff in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Monday, according to the team's Twitter account.
Hornets coach Steve Clifford said the injury put a damper on an otherwise productive preseason opener for the new-look Hornets.
Prior to his injury, the fourth-year forward was 2-for-4 from the field with four points and one assist.
Gilchrist signed a four-year, $52 million extension in August. He averaged a career-high 10.9 points, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game last season, although he was limited to 55 games due to injuries.
