Walker scored 24 points (11-20 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) to go along with five rebounds, five assists and one steal in 35 minutes Monday against the Cavaliers.
Walker was the only Hornet to get much going offensively Monday and he has scored at least 24 points in two of his last three games. He's generally not going to shoot from a high percentage from the field, but he has the ability to contribute solid overall counting stats.

Walker went off for 28 points (11-21 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, seven assists and two steals in 48 minutes during the Hornets' 113-107 2OT loss versus the Grizzlies on Friday.
The 28 points were a season-high, and Walker is typically nowhere near this efficient, so fantasy owners have to be thrilled with this result. The Hornets are already back in action again on Saturday versus the Nets, so it will be interesting to see how Walker fares coming off of such a heavy load of minutes on Friday.

Walker scored 23 points (7-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 8-9 FT) with five rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal in 36 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Bulls.
This was a great all-round line for Walker, and only the second time he has passed the 20 point mark this season. His 36 field goal percentage is a drain for owners, so more games like this would ease the pain.

Walker (thigh) played in almost the entire game Friday against the Warriors, but made just four of his 16 shots for 13 points.
Walker did finish with a double-double by picking up 13 assists, but really struggled shooting, including going 2-for-7 from beyond the arc. He's struggled shooting this season, making just 37.8 percent of his shots on the year a season after shooting 39.3 percent. However, the minor thigh injury that Walker was dealing with doesn't seem to be a problem.

Walker has been dealing with a minor thigh injury but is still expected to play against the Warriors on Friday, the Charlotte Observer reports.
The thigh injury that Walker is dealing with has flown under the radar, although that's likely because it's minor in nature and never really posed any threats for Walker's availability. The point guard should be deployed in all formats as he'll more than likely assume his normal role against the Warriors.

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.
