Kemba Walker has played at a near All-Star level this season 20.2 points a game shooting 36 percent from three, plus dishing out five assists a night. He is having the best season of his career and is the catalyst for their offense.

They are going to miss him against the Cavaliers Wednesday.

He is out with a sore right knee, the team confirmed. This is the first game Walker has missed all season, but it’s one where the Hornets will certainly miss his playmaking.

Expect a lot more Jeremy Lin, plus Brian Roberts and Troy Daniels likely get a little extra run as well.

Nicolas Batum, Charlotte’s best defender and a guy having a breakout year, is questionable for this game as well due to a toe injury.
