Kemba Walker (knee) started and logged 35 minutes in Monday’s loss to the Pacers, scoring 12 points on 4-of-16 shooting with two rebounds, five assists and two steals.
Walker wasn’t the only one that struggled as Nicolas Batum hit just 4-of-13 shots for 13 points, 10 boards, three assists and four treys, but everything begins and ends with Kemba in Charlotte so we’ll be watching for updates about his knee. The contusion he suffered to the same left knee he had surgery on, and it’s something we’ve kept in the back of our minds since draft day. Don’t do anything rash, but you might start to get ahead of this issue in any sort of even-money deal.
