Walker struggled to shoot for the third straight game, making just five of his 15 shots in a loss to the Pacers.
On Monday, Walker had just 11 points on 3-for-8 shooting against the Mavericks, and on Saturday, he made just three of his 14 shots for eight points. Still, Walker played almost the entire game Wednesday, appearing in a game-high 43 minutes. He was able to help owners elsewhere, though, picking up seven assists and recording two steals and three rebounds.

Walker finished with only eight points (3-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-5 FT) and five assists in 27 minutes against the Warriors Saturday.
Walker really struggled with his shot, as he converted on only 21 percent of his field goal attempts. Despite scoring well under his 15.1 point season average, he did continue to record right about his average for assists. He was dealing with a back injury that gave him a questionable status for the beginning of Saturday's game, but considering he played 27 minutes and didn't seem to run into any problems with it, he should most likely be over the back injury and ready for a full games worth of work again on Monday against the Dallas Mavericks.

Walker (back) will start Saturday night against the Warriors, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.
There was never any serious concern associated with the injury, and Walker will play through the discomfort Saturday night. Feel free to roll with him.

Walker is questionable for Saturday's game against the Warriors because of a back injury, Steve Martin of the Bobcats' official website reports.
There's no indication that Walker's injury is at all serious, but the situation will still be worth keeping an eye on as the opening tip-off approaches. If Walker were unable to play, Brian Roberts would likely get the start at point guard.

Walker scored 16 points (6-16 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), with four rebounds, three assists and two steals in 36 minutes during Tuesday's loss.
Walker has been up and down quite a bit in 2014, and he struggled with his shot in this game. He's still a strong option for fantasy leagues, but it seems that the "boom-or-bust" potential will be there, at least for the time being.

Walker scored 18 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3P, 6-6 FT) with seven assists, four rebounds and two steals in 34 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Heat.
The good-shooting Kemba showed up on Wednesday, which doesn't bode well for his owners on Friday given the Jeckyl-and-Hyde nature of his season so far. He's providing solid value, but he won't have the breakout season many expected until his shooting becomes more consistent.

Walker scored 11 points (4-13 FG, 3-8 3Pt), with three assists, two rebounds and one steal in 27 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans.
Walker has had an up and down season to this point in 2014, and has proven to be inconsistent for fantasy owners. It's not time to get overly concerned about Walker just yet though, as he should still be a strong source of points and assists throughout the year. He'll look to bounce back with two home games on the schedule this week.

Walker managed only five points (1-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, four assists and two steals in 31 minutes during the Hornets' 71-69 loss versus the Grizzlies on Saturday.
After a sensational showing in the season opener, Walker simply could not get anything going offensively on Saturday. Only a career 40 percent shooter, Walker has struggled mightily from the field through two games, shooting a meager 10-37 (27 percent). However, it's highly unlikely anyone drafted him hoping he'd help out their field-goal percentage. He and Lance Stephenson are the two primary playmakers off the dribble for the Hornets, and provided performances like this don't become the norm, Walker should again be a solid source of points and assists in 2014-15.

Walker (foot) scored the Hornets' final five points in regulation then hit the game-winner in overtime on Wednesday, finishing the night with 26 points (9-26 FG, 3-9 3P, 5-11 FT), six rebounds and five assists in 39 minutes.
It wasn't the most efficient performance for Walker, but he came through when it counted. He figures to be the focal point of the Hornets' offense this season, and could be poised for a career year.
