Kemba Walker collected 24 points, (8-22 FG, 3-8 3PT, 5-6 FT), five rebounds and five assists in a 129-124 overtime win over the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.
After a 14-point dud in his most recent outing, Walker went back to his old form here. He now has at least 20 points in six of his last seven games, as he continues to run this offense, What makes Walker all the more intriguing is the status of Nicolas Batum, as he appeared to re-aggravate his elbow injury in this win. When Batum misses games, Walker becomes a usage monster, with his fantasy value rising exponentially.
Walker scored 26 points (8-17 FG, 6-9 3PT, 4-4 FT) to go along with two rebounds and six assists over 35 minutes in Saturday's 102-87 win over the Clippers.
Off to a career-high pace of 23.4 points per game entering Saturday, Walker further padded his scoring numbers by sinking a season-high six three-pointers against the Clippers. In addition, the Charlotte guard surpassed the 20 point mark for the fifth consecutive game. This level of consistent scoring has led Walker to become the focal point of the Hornets' offense at this early stage of the season. Also, the return of Nicolas Batum has not affected Walker as the guard has scored 20, 47, and 26 points in the three games since Batum's return.
Walker (wrist) has been cleared to play during Saturday's game against the Clippers with no restrictions, Stephanie Ready of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
Walker sprained his left wrist during the first end of a back-to-back set Friday against the Bulls. It seemingly didn't give him too much discomfort at the time, as he still managed to drop 47 points. It was apparently bothering him after Saturday's morning shootaround, but ultimately, he's been cleared to take the floor against the Clippers.
Walker (wrist) has been downgraded from probable to questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers.
Walker is dealing with a left wrist sprain, which he seemingly suffered on the first end of a back-to-back Friday against the Bulls, though he still managed to drop 47 points on 17-of-27 shooting. Apparently, morning shootaround didn't go as well as anticipated, however, as he's been downgraded from probable to questionable. If he's ultimately sidelined, Michael Carter-Williams and Malik Monk seem like the two candidates to play point guard. Nicolas Batum would probably see a significant share of the ballhandling duties as well.
Walker is probable for Saturday's game against the Clippers due to a left wrist sprain.
Walker probably suffered the injury during Friday's game against the Bulls, but still managed to drop 47 points on 17-of-27 shooting. Look for more word on his status as tipoff nears, though it's likely he'll play. Regardless, if he's ultimately held out, Michael Carter-Williams and Malik Monk would seemingly hold down the fort at the point guard slot.
