Hornets guard Kemba Walker undergoes knee surgery
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

The Hornets announced Wednesday guard Kemba Walker underwent surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee.

The injury is expected to keep Walker out for a minimum of six weeks. Walker averaged 18.8 points and 5.2 assists before suffering the injury. Guard Brian Roberts is expected to start while Walker is sidelined.

Hornets' Brian Roberts ready to fill in for injured Kemba Walker
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

With Hornets guard Kemba Walker out indefinitely due to knee surgery, Brian Roberts is ready to step up in his absence. It's a role that is not unfamiliar to Roberts, who started 42 games last season for the Pelicans after Jrue Holiday suffered a tibia fracture.

“Here’s another opportunity for me to step up and help this team win games,” Roberts said Monday, per the Charlotte Observer. “It’s a challenge and everybody has to step up and take a little bit more ownership. Filling that void will be a group effort.”

Hornets coach Steve Clifford has praised Roberts for his play in limited action this season. He averages 6.8 points and 2.1 assists and 17.4 minutes. He also shoots 37 percent from 3-point range.

“Organize and score,” Clifford said of Roberts' strengths. “We play with a purpose when he’s in there. And with the pick-and-roll and the catch-and-shoot, he puts pressure on the defense.”

Brian Roberts not a Fantasy must-add
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Not all injuries are made equal. Some injuries, like the one Brandon Jennings suffered last weekend, creates a huge hole on a team that has had a player ready and capable of stepping into it and providing Fantasy value. In the case of Hornets' guard Kemba Walker, I'm not quite sure we can say the same thing.

Walker might go on the shelf for six weeks with a knee injury that could require surgery, and Fantasy owners are eyeing backup Brian Roberts as a potential winner if that goes down. Roberts has started three games for Walker in recent weeks, averaging 13.0 points and 4.0 assists per game, decent numbers, but nothing to run to the waiver wires over. And really, there is little reason to expect much more than that from Roberts, who averaging 11.9 points and 4.0 assists in 28.9 minutes per game as a starter last season, a sample that includes 42 games.

Roberts is a game-manager type, and the Hornets likely won't ask for too much more from him than they already have. Roberts won't hurt you, but he is a decidedly un-sexy Fantasy option. If Augustin is already gone in your league, Roberts is worth a look, though I'm not sure he's even worth adding over the likes of Langston Galloway, Dante Exum or Eric Gordon, all of whom are available in at least 17 percent of CBSSports.com leagues.

Hornets' Brian Roberts fills in nicely for Kemba Walker
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Hornets backup point guard Brian Roberts scored 17 points on 5 of 9 shooting in Charlotte 76-71 win over the Knicks Saturday. Roberts, starting in place of the injured Kemba Walker, was able to provide Charlotte the spark they needed to pick up the win.

"Just to know I can come in help a team win games, that is something you can't teach," Roberts said. "Just have experience that I was fortunate enough to have last year. And it looks like I'm going to have to do that a little bit here."

Roberts added three rebounds and dished out three assists on the night.

"One of the advantage of bringing him here was that he started so many games last year so he's comfortable in that role," Hornets coach Steve Clifford said.

Hornets' Kemba Walker able to participate in Tuesday's practice
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

After participating in Tuesday's practice, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said guard Kemba Walker will be available to play in Wednesday's against the Heat, if Walker does not suffer a setback during Wednesday's shootaround.

Walker has missed the last two games while dealing with a cyst in his left knee. Guard Brian Roberts started Monday in Walker's place and scored 16 points with five assists in a 105-80 victory over the Timberwolves.
