Walker provided 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt), five assists and two rebounds during the Hornets' 119-93 season finale win over the Pacers on Tuesday. After scoring 21 points back on Mar. 28, Walker wasn't much of an offensive threat to concluded the regular season, as he averaged just 11 points over the final six games. The former NCAA National Champion missed just two games this season, and averaged 22.1 points, 5.6 assists and 3.1 rebounds per contest. The 2018-19 season will be Walker's contract year where he is set to make $12 million.
Walker totaled just 12 points (4-9 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists and one rebound in 25 minutes during Sunday's 123-117 loss to Indiana. Walker continues to fade from the fantasy landscape as the Hornets move into off-season mode. A positive is that he has not rested any games but his production has left a lot to be desired. The Hornets travel to Indiana to face the Pacers again in the final regular season game. Let's hope Walker plays and decides to go out with a bang.
Walker scored 13 points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with four assists, one rebound and one seal across 23 minutes during Friday's 137-100 win over the Magic. Walker struggled from the floor in this one, but his team enjoyed a hefty lead for most of the night and were able to limit him to his lowest minutes total since Feb. 18. Circumstances in this one aside, Walker's production has slowed dramatically over the last four contests -- a stretch in which he's averaging just 9.8 points on 33 percent shooting to go along with 3.5 assists per game. He'll look to get back on track Sunday against the Pacers.
Walker scored nine points (4-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding four assists and a rebound in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 120-114 loss to the Bulls. Whether it's due to fatigue at the end of a grueling campaign, or a lack of drive now that the Hornets have been eliminated from the playoffs, Walker has basically vanished over the last three games, averaging 8.7 points, 3.3 assists, 2.0 boards and 1.0 three-pointers while shooting 33.3 percent from the floor and 17.6 percent from beyond the arc. Malik Monk has stepped up at the same time as Walker has faded, and coach Steve Clifford may well continue giving more minutes to the rookie at Walker's expense over the final three games of the season.
Walker had 10 points (2-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four assists, one rebound and one block in 25 minutes during Sunday's 119-102 loss to the 76ers. Walker took a back seat in this one, attempting just seven field-goals in his 25 minutes of playing time. The 76ers built a comfortable lead, sending Walker to the bench for much of the second half. That makes two bad games in a row for Walker and despite the team being out of the playoff hunt, he should be much better in a favorable matchup with the Bulls on Tuesday.
