Kemba Walker PG CHA 15 Days

Walker (knee) scored six points (2-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 0-2 FT) with two assists and a block in 16 minutes off the bench Wednesday, his first action after missing 18 games.

While it wasn't the performance Walker owners would have liked, he did look good early before fading, and it may take another game or two for him to get his legs back under him. Don't be surprised if he's still in the second unit on Friday against the Bulls.

Walker (knee) will see limited minutes in Wednesday's game against the Kings, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

Walker will make his return after undergoing surgery in late-January to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.

At this point, it's unclear how long he'll play under a minutes restriction.

Walker (knee) said he's going to return to the court Wednesday against the Kings, the Hornet's official site reports.

Walker was forceful in the interview, saying that he will play Wednesday, but he then back pedaled a little and said he is hopeful to be out there Wednesday. He played three-on-three Tuesday and said everything went great, so it sounds like Walker is a near-lock to return Wednesday, though it remains unclear how many minutes he'll get and whether or not he'll start.

Walker (knee) is expected to return to the lineup in no less than two weeks, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Walker has been cleared to resume practicing and is targeting a return at some point during the Bobcats' West Coast road trip. The two-week timetable is far from solidified at this point, but the Bobcats should zero in on a target date for Walker's return after assessing his condition over the next few practices. Once he returns to the lineup, he'll find himself with a new running mate in the backcourt, as coach Steve Clifford relayed that he plans to keep the newly acquired Mo Williams in a starting role alongside Walker.

Walker (knee) has been cleared to resume basketball activities.

Walker, who underwent surgery in late-January to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, has been cleared to practice without restrictions, so it's only a matter of time before he's back on the court. The point guard is without a firm return date, but he should be considered day-to-day going forward until the team provides a timetable. Walker was averaging 18.8 points, 5.2 assists and 3.8 rebounds per game prior to the injury.

Walker (knee) will be reevaluated Wednesday, the Charlotte Observer reports.

Walker doesn't have a definite timetable for return but an announcement sometime after Wednesday's doctor visit is expected. In the meantime, Mo Williams has taken over duties at starting point guard and should be owned across all standard leagues until Walker returns to the court.

Kemba Walker PG CHA 1 Month

Walker (knee) is targeting Mar. 16 as the earliest possible return date, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.Walker was originally handed a recovery timetable of about six weeks, and this return date would fall in line with that prognosis. The point guard has already missed eight games, and assuming the Mar. 16 timeline holds up, he'd miss 12 additional contests. The Hornets have been starting Brian Roberts in his place, but recent acquisition Mo Williams will factor into the rotation and has a chance to supplant Roberts in the starting five.

Walker (knee) underwent successful surgery Wednesday to repair a torn left meniscus. He's expected to miss a minimum of six weeks.

As expected, Walker will miss at least a month-and-a-half of action, and he should be expected back in early-to-mid-March. Walker is the Hornets' leader in scoring, assists and steals and had scored 20 or more point sin 14 of his last 21 contests. Brian Roberts will step in as the interim starting point guard in Walker's absence, though the team could look to find an upgrade via trade.

Walker (knee) will undergo surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee, NBA.com reports.

Walker received a second opinion on his knee, which has been bothering him for nearly two weeks, Monday, and the torn meniscus diagnosis was confirmed. While the team is withholding a timeline until after the surgery is completed, Walker is expected to miss around six weeks. If that timetable is, indeed, accurate, Walker would be set to return in early-to-mid-March with roughly 20 or so games remaining in the regular season. Even without an official timetable from the team, expect Walker to miss significant time, which means Brian Roberts will step in as the starting point guard.

Walker (knee) is in New York on Monday getting a second opinion on his injury, the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell reports.

The Hornets do not play again until Wednesday in San Antonio, so in theory, Walker could rejoin the team and take part in that game. However, conventional wisdom would suggest he probably won't be available for that game. There is still nothing firm being announced here, but we should know more following the results of this second opinion.
