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.
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.
