Kemba Walker PG CHA 20 Days
Kemba Walker shot 5-of-10 from the field for 11 points to go with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.
He entered tonight shooting 36.0 percent from the field, but he's been above that threshold in each of his last three games. Walker did not play in the fourth quarter with the Bobcats up 74-51 at the end of the third, so that explains his 28 minutes. His terrible start looks to be a thing of the past.

Kemba Walker turned in his second straight non-disastrous shooting night, hitting 7-of-18 shots (no threes) with five rebounds, six assists and one steal in the Bobcats' 98-91 home loss to the Suns on Friday.
Walker hit 12-of-20 shots on Wednesday after going 28-of-110 over the previous seven games, so hopefully he has turned the corner on whatever was ailing him. Gerald Henderson scored 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting with four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in the loss.

Kemba Walker finally broke out of a dreadful shooting slump in Wednesday's win over the Nets, hitting 12-of-20 shots and four 3-pointers on his way to a season-high 31 points along with five rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block.
Wow. Walker came in hitting just 28-of-110 shots over his previous seven games and may have been dropped in your league. He's not going to play this well every night, but there was also no way he was going to play that poorly for much longer. If you need a point guard, think about grabbing him as the slump may finally be over.

Kemba Walker continued to struggle since injuring his left (non-shooting) shoulder over a week ago, hitting just 3-of-14 shots for eight points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in Monday's loss to the Bulls.
Since injuring his shoulder, Walker has hit 28-of-110 (25.5%) shots in seven games. That high volume albatross of a stat is killing his value, and owners should be actively rooting for him to get rest.

Kemba Walker didn't appear to be bothered by his strained rib cage injury in Saturday's loss to the Heat with 22 points, three boards, two assists, one steal, one block and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.
Even though he had a heat back on his torso for a couple minutes, it doesn't appear this will be an issue for him. Walker's main issue this season has been shooting and he was just 7-of-18 from the field, which actually increased his field goal shooting of 33.3 percent before tonight. He has some buy-low appeal and maybe thing will get better once Al Jefferson comes back.

Kemba Walker shot 4-of-19 from the field for 12 points with five boards, seven assists, five steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes on Friday.
Well, Bad Kemba is back and over his last five games he's shooting just 23.1 percent. Worst yet, he's taking 15.6 shots per game in those outings. On the bright side, his numbers are up in the other areas over that span with averages of 4.6 boards, 4.8 assists, 2.0 steals and only 2.0 turnovers. Hopefully Walker starts getting his shot to fall soon.

Kemba Walker shot 1-of-13 from the field for three points against the Celtics on Wednesday, adding nine boards, two assists and three steals in 34 minutes.
He's into one of his patented cold spells over his last four, making only 23.7 percent from the field in that span. Walker was shooting the ball well in the preseason thanks to getting to the hoop, but he's went back to some bad rookie habits. Coach Steve Clifford will likely get on him for this putrid outing and perhaps he can get it turned around.

Kemba Walker has hit just 22-of-66 shots since suffering a bruised left shoulder back on November 5.
The 33 percent clip is not too far off his rookie year shooting percentage but it's bad enough for us to take notice. Keep an eye out for reports, but owners may want to ease back on using him in daily contests like FanDuel.
Kemba Walker PG CHA 1 Month
Kemba Walker hit just 2-of-13 shots for five points, four boards, seven assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer, and the Bobcats still managed to beat the Raptors, despite no Al Jefferson and this shooting line from Walker.
The Bobcats are now 3-2, which is encouraging when you consider Al Jefferson has been MIA for most of the season. As for Walker, he still salvaged a nice line and we're guessing he may not shoot it this poorly again this season. However, it is possible that the left shoulder injury he suffered in his last game had an impact on his shooting, but he should get it going again soon since the injury isn't considered to be serious.
