Walker provided 20 points (5-19 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 10-11 FT), 11 assists, five rebounds and one steal across 37 minutes in Friday's 90-87 loss to the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Walker's scoring total led the Hornets, but he scuffled badly with his shot throughout the night versus the Celtics' swarming backcourt defense. The All-Star point guard also turned the ball over on Charlotte's final inbounds pass of the night, as Jaylen Brown intercepted the ball and knocked it sufficiently down-court to make Walker's subsequent desperation heave fruitless. Walker has posted at least 20 points in three of his first five games of November, but he's also shot 33.3 percent or less in three contests during the month.

Walker accumulated 21 points (8-16 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven assists, five rebounds and one steal across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 118-113 loss to the Knicks.

EDGE Analysis

After a set of back-to-back disappointing efforts where he averaged 11.0 points on 29.6 percent shooting, Walker found his stroke Tuesday against the Knicks. So far, 2017-18 is shaping up to be another great season for the seventh-year player, however, as he's en route to average 20-plus points and five-plus assists for the third straight campaign.

Walker finished with 26 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three assists, two rebounds and one block across 34 minutes during Wednesday's 126-121 win over the Bucks.

EDGE Analysis

Walker has now scored at least 26 points in five of the team's first eight games, including a season-high of 34 points against the Magic (where he also handed out 10 assists). Despite Nicolas Batum (elbow) being sidelined, Walker hasn't missed a beat so far this year, upping his production from last season in points and assists.

Walker led all scorers with 27 points (7-15 FG, 12-13 FT), two rebounds and six assists in a 115-99 win over the Memphis Grizzlies on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Walker did that damage in just 29 minutes of action, as his minutes were limited due to the nature of the fourth quarter. He now has at least 26 points in three-straight games, as he's also averaging seven assists per game in that stretch as well. What's also been a nice surprise is the free-throw shooting for Walker, as he is now 52-of-57 from the free-throw line for the season.

Walker posted 34 points (15-25 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 10 assists, six rebounds, two steals and one block in 35 minutes during Sunday's 120-113 victory over the Magic.

EDGE Analysis

Walker torched the Magic defense on Sunday, collecting a season-high in points, rebounds, assists, and steals. This is the Kemba Walker owners were hoping for when drafting him. In lieu of the favorable matchup, with Elfrid Payton (hamstring) still unavailable, Walker was able to take total control of the game, guiding the Hornets to a solid victory. He will look to keep things rolling tomorrow night against the Grizzlies.

Walker totaled 26 points (8-22 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five assists, three rebounds, one steal and one block in 38 minutes during Friday's 109-93 loss to the Rockets.

EDGE Analysis

Walker has had a solid, but somewhat quiet start to the season. He has kept owners happy with contributions all over the court, and his slow start is likely part of the growing process as he learns to play alongside Dwight Howard. He also some has some added pressure without Nicolas Batum on the floor. His numbers should improve as the season moves forward, and the buy-low window is closing fast.

Walker finished with 26 points (6-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 10-12 FT), nine assists, four rebounds and one steal across 38 minutes during Friday's 109-91 win over the Hawks.

EDGE Analysis

Walker didn't record a game all season with 10 made free throws, but has made 21 shots from the charity stripe during the team's first two contests. That may be in large part due to the absence of Nicolas Batum (elbow), who is the team's secondary ballhandler. As a result, Walker is being tasked with handling the ball more and running pick-and-rolls with his new center, Dwight Howard.

Walker collected 24 points (6-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 11-13 FT), six rebounds and four assists across 35 minutes during Wednesday's 102-90 loss to the Pistons.

EDGE Analysis

Wednesday marked a relatively normal game for Walker, though that's impressive in and of itself due to the Hornets missing two starters, Nicolas Batum (elbow) and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal). Although, his 11 made free throws are somewhat of an outlier considering he registered just three games last season with that many made shots from the line.

Walker (face) will draw the start during Wednesday's contest against the Celtics.

EDGE Analysis

Walker took an elbow to the cheek during Monday's game against the Heat but has appeared to shake off the injury. With secondary ballhandler Nicolas Batum (elbow) out for a maximum of three months, Walker should see increased usage and take on a more traditional point guard role in the meantime.

Walker took an elbow to the cheek in Monday's preseason tilt against Heat and is listed as questionable to return.

EDGE Analysis

Walker tallied 11 points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3PT, 6-7 FT), two boards, and three assists across 16 minutes before exiting the contest. The Hornets are likely exercising caution given that it is just an exhibition game, but expect an update if it turns out the injury is cause for concern. Malik Monk figures to get some extra run in Walker's absence.
