When it rains it pours, and if you’re a fan of the Charlotte Hornets then it’s time to take out your umbrella. Kemba Walker will miss tonight’s game with a knee injury that’s being called a cyst on his left knee.
Walker has yet to miss a game this season, but obviously that changes tonight. He joins Al Jefferson on the bench in a suit, who has missed eight games and a return isn’t in the near future.
While the team works out a way to move Lance Stephenson or find a way for him to fit, they’ll struggle to stay in the playoff race without Walker and Jefferson.
The Hornets now turn to Brian Roberts, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer:
With Kemba Walker (sore knee) out tonight, Brian Roberts will become the only Hornet to have played in all 41 games 1st half of the season.
