Kemba Walker (wrist) shook off a wrist injury to play in Saturday's game against the Clippers, finishing with a game-high 26 points.
Walker's wrist didn't appear to be giving him any trouble, as the point guard was good for a 6-of-9 shooting night from behind the 3-point line while adding six assists and two rebounds across 36 minutes. It appears safe to get him back into the active fantasy lineup for the upcoming week if you reserved him as a precaution. Nov 18 - 10:00 PM

Kemba Walker (wrist) will play against the Clippers on Saturday.

He tweaked his non-shooting wrist on Friday in his 38-minute gem. Walker blew up with a 47-point game in a loss to the Bulls on Friday and he's scored at least 20 in four straight. With Pat Beverley (knee) doubtful to play, Walker could be in for another big night in front of the home crowd.

Kemba Walker (left wrist sprain) has been downgraded to questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

We didn't think much of it when Walker popped up on the injury report Saturday morning, as he was initially listed as probable. However, there is now cause for concern regarding Walker's availability for Saturday night's contest. If Kemba is unable to suit up, Michael Carter-Williams would likely draw the start at point guard. Malik Monk would also see an uptick in playing time off the bench. The Hornets don't have a shootaround today, so we'll have to wait for coach Steve Clifford to address the media this evening for an update.

Kemba Walker (left wrist sprain) is listed as probable for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

Walker must have dinged his wrist Friday; however, it certainly didn't slow him down as he poured in a season-high 47 points in a loss to the Bulls. Walker also added six rebounds, five assists and five triples. He should be ready to rock tonight but check back before tip-off on Saturday evening to confirm he is in the starting lineup.

Kemba Walker scored a season-high 47 points (five short of career-high) on Friday, but the Hornets still fell to the Bulls 123-120.

The Hornets are reeling with six straight losses, and coach Steve Clifford said the team has no identity right now -- the Bulls were dead last in offensive efficiency and still put up 123 points. As for Kemba, he was sensational en route to the second-highest point total of his career, hitting 17-of-27 shots with six rebounds, five assists and five triples. The All-Star PG will try to help the Hornets right the ship on Saturday against a Clippers team that has lost seven straight.
Nov 17 - 11:19 PM

Kemba Walker scored 20 points with 11 assists, five rebounds, one steal and three turnovers in a 90-87 loss to Boston on Friday.

The Hornets had a meltdown in the fourth quarter as they were outscored 26-11. Walker recorded his 29th career points/assists double-double, but couldn't buy a 3-pointer tonight -- he missed all six triples and finished 5-of-19 from the field. On the bright side, Kemba knocked down 10-of-11 FTs and is on pace to demolish his previous career-high in FTAs per game.
Nov 10 - 10:57 PM

Kemba Walker hit 8-of-16 shots and four 3-pointers for 21 points, five rebounds, seven assists and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Knicks.

He also had five turnovers, but after scoring just nine and 13 points in his previous two games (on 8-of-27 shooting), owners have to be thrilled for the bounce-back game, with or without the TOs. Unfortunately, he can't play against the Knicks every night.
Nov 7 - 10:27 PM

Kemba Walker was held to a season-low nine points vs. the Wolves on Sunday, hitting 4-of-15 shots (0-of-5 from deep) with nine assists, one steal and two rebounds.

This was especially disappointing since Minnesota has the league's third-worst defensive rating, ahead of only the Mavericks and Cavaliers, and no team has given up more fastbreak points. Kemba is a combined 8-of-27 from the field in his past two games, but he's a much improved shooter from his early years in the league, so this shouldn't be a prolonged issue.
Nov 5 - 11:16 PM

Kemba Walker scored a team-high 26 points (8-of-12 FGs, 7-of-7 FTs) with three assists, two rebounds, one block and three 3-pointers in a 126-121 win over the Bucks on Wednesday.

The Bucks have given up the fifth most fantasy points to point guards this season, so Walker predictably went off. He had 20 points by halftime, and he’s currently crushing his ADP by flirting with first-round value in 9-category leagues. He also made a bit of history by becoming the all-time franchise leader in games with 20+ points (193) and games with 25+ points (110).
Nov 1 - 9:53 PM

Kemba Walker ran wild vs. the Magic on Sunday, making 15-of-25 shots for a game-high 35 points with 10 assists, six rebounds, two steals, one block and a pair of 3-pointers.

In the process, Kemba notched his 191st career 20-point game, pulling within one game of the franchise record held by Larry Johnson. He abused Orlando in the pick-and-roll tonight, and has quickly developed chemistry with Dwight Howard (22 points, 10 boards, three assists). When asked where his team's defense broke down, Magic coach Frank Vogel replied, "Kemba Walker and Kemba Walker-related problems." He's cruising along as a top-20 fantasy value.
Oct 29 - 10:07 PM

Kemba Walker dropped 26 points in a 109-91 win over the Hawks on Friday, shooting 6-of-13 from the field.

Walker also hit 10-of-12 from the line and has now hit 10+ free throws in two straight games -- he never hit more than nine free throws in a game last season. He added nine assists, four rebounds, one steal and four triples and helped the Hornets battle back from a 20-point deficit in the first half. He's now scored a combined 50 points through his first two games and his left knee doesn't seem to be a concern despite having three surgeries in three years.
Oct 20 - 10:16 PM

Kemba Walker scored 18 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Mavs on Friday.

After playing 52 minutes in his last two preseason games and even playing before expected this summer, Walker looks to be 100 percent ready to roll. He's coming off a career-high 44.4 percent from the field while also burying 3.0 treys per game. If he can be even close to that efficiency while Nic Batum (elbow) is on the shelf, Walker should have another monster season at age 27.
Oct 13 - 8:47 PM

Kemba Walker had 11 points, two rebounds, three assists and a 3-pointer on 2-of-4 shooting in 16 minutes before leaving Monday's game after taking a shot to the face.

Reports out of Charlotte are that he's fine, but he didn't return to tonight's game. Walker's been an under appreciated fantasy point guard over the last three seasons and should be primed for another good one. He's going in the Round 3 in standard fantasy drafts.
Oct 9 - 11:10 PM

Kemba Walker (knee, illness) scored 12 points in Monday's preseason opener vs. the Celtics.

Walker had his third knee surgery in three years back in May, but he's been 100 percent for a couple months now. He struggled with his shot tonight (3-of-11 FGs), but he hit two triples with three rebounds, three assists and two turnovers in 24 minutes. Coming off his first All-Star season with a similar supporting cast, the 27-year-old Walker is a nice option in the third round of standard fantasy drafts.
Oct 2 - 10:31 PM

Kemba Walker (illness) practiced without limitations on Sunday.

This was never a concern and it sounds like he'll get in some reps vs. the Celtics on Monday, when Charlotte kicks off their preseason.
