Malik Monk is back on the Charlotte Hornets roster just two days after being sent to the G-League.

According to the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell, the Hornets sent Monk to their G-league affiliate the Greensboro Swarm to get more playing time. The Swarm had a home game on Tuesday, so instead of going through practice with the Hornets, the coaching staff wanted Monk to run freely before returning to Charlotte for tonight’s game vs. the Boston Celtics.

The "demotion" clearly let Monk play with a more aggressive approach than he has in Charlotte. Monk scored 25 points and grabbed eight rebounds in the 41 minutes he received.

Through 29 games with the Hornets, Monk is averaging 5.9 points, 1.5 assists and 1.1 rebounds in 14.5 minutes.
