Bonnell tweeted that he would be "mildly surprised" if the 7-footer will be ready to play in the Hornets' first game.

Kaminsky spent four seasons with the Wisconsin Badgers from 2011-15, so playing in Milwaukee usually nets him a warm welcome. The No. 9 overall pick in the 2015 draft helped lead the Badgers to back-to-back Final Four appearances and was named the National College Player of the Year for the 2015 season.

During his rookie season, the 23-year-old averaged 4.0 points, 3.0 rebounds and 20.5 minutes in two games at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee.
