Hornets lose guard Gerald Henderson 1-2 weeks with hamstring injury

1 Comment

Gerald Henderson is in a fight for a starting spot in Charlotte — Kemba Walker is the point guard and Lance Stephenson will play the two or the three, with Henderson or Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as the other starter.

So this news is a setback for him — Henderson will be out 1-2 weeks with a hamstring strain, reports Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

Henderson averaged 14 points a game starting 77 games for Charlotte last season. His a veteran and knows coach Steve Clifford’s system, but this gives MKG a chance to shine and get some more run to develop chemistry with Stephenson and the other starters.

Still, Henderson should be back for the last couple preseason games and will be good to go when the season tips off.
