3:00pm: The season hasn’t begun yet, but the Hornets are already likely without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, whom they just signed to an extension, for all of 2015/16, and both of last season’s Finals participants are without key figures.

That leaves others with unexpected opportunities and plenty of question marks about what happens next.
