Kemba Walker PG CHA 3 Months

Kemba Walker, who hit just 1-of-9 shots on Monday, said on Tuesday that his groin feels good.

Consider the injury to be behind him as the Bobcats prepare for Round 1 of the playoffs, where they'll likely face the Heat.

Kemba Walker (groin) returned to action in Monday's win over the Hawks, hitting just 1-of-9 shots (including a three) for five points, zero rebounds and seven assists in 24 minutes.

Clearly he's not at 100 percent but a chance at the No. 6 seed, which would avoid Miami, is still on the line and he's going to push through if he can. Gerald Henderson was just as bad but without an excuse, hitting an identical 1-of-9 shots for four points, five rebounds and three assists, and Al Jefferson went for 27 and 15 with one steal against the Hawks' depleted squad.

Kemba Walker (groin) will start against the Hawks on Monday.

He missed two games with a sore groin and must be feeling well. Walker can be placed back in all fantasy lineups while Luke Ridnour can be cut across the board.

Kemba Walker (groin injury) is expected to play vs. the Hawks on Monday.

Walker made it through shootaround without any setbacks so it seems like he's ready to start after missing the past two games. Charlotte is still one game behind the sixth-place Wizards, so depending upon the outcome of Monday's games they can still move up the rankings.

Kemba Walker (groin) will miss his second straight game vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

Luke Ridnour gets another start at PG in his absence, and Gary Neal should also take on a bigger role as Charlotte tries to knock off the lowly 76ers while gearing up for the playoffs. Walker remains day-to-day and his absence may be somewhat precautionary as the Bobcats have no incentive to push him with a playoff spot locked up.

Kemba Walker (groin) will not play against the Celtics on Friday night.

Kemba played 44 minutes on Wednesday and he may have suffered the injury late in that game. The team is hoping he'll be ready to go on Saturday and maybe the team is playing it safe considering they're already in the playoffs. Luke Ridnour will start and is possibility as a fantasy option. Walker owners will want to check back for his status on Saturday.

Kemba Walker (groin) is questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics.

This comes out of left field as Walker played 44 minutes in Wednesday's win at Washington. He apparently sustained the groin tweak late in that one. Beat writer Rick Bonnell does not expect Walker to play Friday night given the tricky nature of soft-tissue injuries and how close we are to the playoffs. Luke Ridnour, Gary Neal and Chris Douglas-Roberts all figure to get a boost in minutes until Walker returns. None are very exciting fantasy plug-n-plays.

Kemba Walker PG CHA 4 Months

Kemba Walker had just eight points and five assists in Wednesday's blowout of the Sixers.

It's a massive blow to owners who were hoping Walker would punish the Sixers' Swiss cheese defense. Instead, he battled foul trouble and then the Bobcats sat their starters for the majority of the second half. Walker projects to bounce back in a big way against the Magic on Friday night.

Kemba Walker scored 24 points on 8-of-25 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, eight assists and one steal in Friday's overtime loss.

Walker hit 6-of-7 free throws to try and balance out that crooked shooting line but that's still going to leave a mark. Al Jefferson was also cooking with 20 points, eight boards and four steals in the loss.

Kemba Walker hit just 8-of-21 shots and two 3-pointers, but was still able to finish with 20 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, a steal and two turnovers in Wednesday's overtime win against the Nets.

Walker's shot will leave him at times, but he's still one of the better point guard options in fantasy this season. He had 22 points in his previous game, and has scored 20 or more in five of his last six games.
