Ramon Sessions underwent successful surgery on Wednesday to repair his torn left meniscus, and his timetable has been set at 4-6 weeks.
Sessions was only averaging 16.2 minutes per game as Kemba Walker's primary backup this season, and most those minutes will now fall to Brian Roberts with 10-day contract signee Ray McCallum picking up the scraps. There isn't an add here in most settings. Feb 8 - 12:50 PM

Date:

Ramon Sessions (knee) will undergo surgery on his torn left meniscus and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

He was hoping to avoid surgery, so this is a tough break for Sessions and the Hornets. Based on this timetable, we won't see him back on the court until March at the earliest. Sessions didn't have much fantasy value as the backup PG behind Kemba Walker with averages of 6.2 points and 2.6 assists in 16.2 minutes per game. Brian Roberts will pick up Sessions' minutes, but Ray McCallum could be involved as well. There are no fantasy pickups here.
Feb 6 - 6:29 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) described his injury as a "small tear."

"It’s not automatic surgery," Sessions said. "From what the doctor in Utah saw, it wasn’t the worst tear. It was a little tear. Surgery or not, we don’t know. But it already feels better than it did the first night." Sessions has never had surgery in his 10-year NBA career, but he will learn his fate when the Hornets re-evaluate him on Sunday afternoon. If he misses time, Brian Roberts will pick up the backup minutes behind Kemba Walker.
Feb 5 - 9:17 AM

Ramon Sessions (knee) said it isn't automatic he will need surgery on his torn meniscus.

In other words, there's only an outside chance he won't need surgery. If he does get the surgery, previous instances have timetables of about 6-8 weeks for a lateral meniscus. We will see Brain Roberts and Ray McCallum compete for the backup PG minutes.
Feb 4 - 5:52 PM

Ramon Sessions (left knee) has a lateral meniscus tear and has no timetable to return.

He will be re-evaluated in Charlotte and the Hornets will update him after that. The degree of the tear isn't known, but Sessions is almost certainly out through the All-Star break. The recently-signed Ray McCallum should back up Kemba Walker (illness), who is also questionable for Saturday against the Jazz.

Feb 3 - 7:09 PM

Ramon Sessions (knee) is unlikely to play on Saturday against the Jazz.

He is dealing with some knee soreness right now, and the Hornets signing Ray McCallum to a 10-day deal doesn't bode well for Sessions. Kemba Walker (illness) is also questionable for this game, so McCallum could get big minutes.
Feb 3 - 4:55 PM

Ramon Sessions is dealing with a sore knee and is uncertain to play on Saturday in Utah.

The Hornets are in some trouble with Kemba Walker (illness) questionable to play. They did sign Ray McCallum to a 10-day, so that makes sense now with Sessions dealing with this injury. Sessions hasn't had a knee issue since 2014, so this is something new for him. Ray McCallum is only an add in super deep leagues.
Feb 3 - 2:33 PM

Ramon Sessions started at point guard in place of Kemba Walker (personal) on Friday vs. Boston, scoring 13 points with six assists, six rebounds and one triple in 32 minutes.

Sessions averaged 17.6 points, 9.6 assists, 3.2 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.2 triples as a fill-in starter for the Wizards last season, so he's shown that he can put up numbers. He finished just 5-of-16 from the field with only one turnover, so his DFS owners should be satisfied with his production at his bargain-bin price. Walker is expected to be back with the team for Saturday's game vs. Atlanta, so Sessions can be dropped to the wire in season-long leagues if you streamed him tonight.

Ramon Sessions will start at point guard in place of Kemba Walker (personal) Friday night vs. Boston.

Walker has an excused absence to tend to a personal matter. He is scheduled to rejoin the Hornets when they play in Atlanta on Saturday. Sessions will be backed up Friday by Brian Roberts. This will be Sessions first start this season, but his per-36 minute averages are encouraging: 13.2 points, 6.3 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.4 steals.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 10:08:00 AM

Ramon Sessions scored seven points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one triple in 18 minutes off the bench on Saturday vs. Cleveland.

He hit 2-of-6 shots from the field. Kemba Walker suffered a left knee contusion in the loss, and while he said he doesn't expect to miss time, Sessions is the next man up and should be on your radar just in case. In five starts for the Wizards last season, Sessions posted impressive averages of 17.6 points, 9.6 assists, 3.2 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 1.2 triples. Be on the lookout for news regarding Kemba.
Sat, Dec 10, 2016 11:41:00 PM

Ramon Sessions played a surprising 29 minutes in Saturday's preseason loss to the Celtics, finishing with nine points, five rebounds, two assists and two turnovers on 3-of-9 shooting.

Sessions was also 3-of-5 from the free throw line, so this was a pretty uninspiring performance. So long as Kemba Walker (knee surgery) remains healthy, Sessions is an afterthought in standard fantasy formats.
Sat, Oct 8, 2016 06:32:00 PM

Ramon Sessions, Nic Batum, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Marvin Williams and Roy Hibbert will start on Monday.

Kemba Walker (knee) and Brian Roberts (hamstring) will not play tonight, so there should be some big minutes for the new Hornet. We'll also get a good look at MKG during this game.
Mon, Oct 3, 2016 08:42:00 PM

Ramon Sessions has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $12.5 million deal with the Hornets.

The Hornets lost Jeremy Lin and Courtney Lee in free agency, so Sessions' arrival gives them some veteran depth to support Kemba Walker at PG. Milwaukee will likely add another guard to fill out the rotation, but as things stand Sessions get around 18-24 minutes in a reserve role for the Hornets. He's only worth owners' attention in deep fantasy leagues.

Ramon Sessions said that he'll be looking for a team that will give him the opportunity to start as an unrestricted free agent this season.

"In this league everybody wants to be a starter," Sessions said. "For me, my whole career’s kind of been that backup role, which I’ve been fine with. But at the end of the day, I do want to be a starter." Through five games as a starter during the 2015-16 season, Sessions compiled averages of 17.6 points, 9.6 assists, 1.2 triples, 1.0 steal and 2.8 turnovers per game on 55.0 percent shooting. While those numbers are impressive, given the current landscape of the NBA it's tough to see the 30-year-old landing a starting gig as a free agent this offseason.

Ramon Sessions scored 22 points with six assists, four boards, one steal and three 3-pointers in a 109-98 win vs. the Hawks on Wednesday.

John Wall (knee) missed the final five games of the season, opening the door for Sessions to prove his worth. He averaged an impressive 17.6 points, 9.6 assists, 3.2 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.2 3-pointers in that span, shooting 55.0 percent from the field. If you picked him for the finals of your fantasy league, you probably bought his jersey too. He will be a free agent this summer, so he likely earned himself a decent raise.
