Charlotte, NC -
Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker is expected to miss 10-14 days, due to a second-degree ankle sprain, suffered in Saturday night's Bobcats loss to the Heat, at Time Warner Cable Arena.
Walker hurt the ankle while running a fast break in the third quarter. Walker knifed down the lane, but stepped on Chris Bosh's foot in the process. Walker turned his left ankle over, practically pinning his ankle bone to the floor.
Walker fell to the ground in pain, and needed to be helped off the floor by his teammates. An x-ray performed Saturday night revealed no break. The MRI conducted Sunday showed the second-degree sprain.
The Bobcats have seven games during the two week span Walker is expected to miss. If he were to return two weeks from Sunday, he would come back in the midst of a four-game West Coast road trip for Charlotte.
If the Bobcats were to wait until they return to Charlotte after that trip, Walker would miss nearly three full weeks, leading up to the Bobcats game against the San Antonio Spurs, on Saturday, February 8th.
