The Hornets announced that Kemba Walker had successful left knee surgery in order to repair a torn meniscus.
Per the official press release, Walker is expected to resume basketball activities in early July, so he should be fine long before the thought of training camp arrives. Walker enjoyed a true breakout season in every sense of the term, and there is no reason to believe he'll last beyond the first 25 picks of your next fantasy draft. However, there is some new risk involved. This is the second left knee surgery Walker has been forced to undergo to address a meniscus issue since January 2015, and it's worth noting that he had a torn left meniscus while he was at UConn in 2010, as well.

Kemba Walker scored just nine points on 3-of-16 shooting in Sunday's 106-73 loss to the Heat in Game 7, adding six assists, two boards, one steal and one 3-pointer.

His nine points were the second fewest in a Game 7 by a player who averaged 25 points per game in the first six games of a series. As bad as Walker was on Sunday, he had a breakout campaign with averages of 20.9 points, 5.2 assists, 4.4 boards, 1.6 steals and 2.2 3-pointers during the regular season, returning top-20 value in standard 9-cat leagues. The 25-year-old guard will be a solid early-round pick in fantasy drafts next season.
May 1 - 3:47 PM

Kemba Walker scored a playoff career-high 37 points during a Game 6 97-90 loss to the Heat on Friday, adding three rebounds, five assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

He needed some help. Walker was 14-of-30 from the field for his 37 while the other six non-center Hornets scored a combined 23 points. Walker scored 14 points during his 11 minutes in the fourth quarter, but Dwyane Wade was just too strong. If the Hornets want to get a win, Walker will need to be the hero on Sunday in Game 7.
Apr 29 - 11:28 PM

Kemba Walker cooled off in 35 minutes on Wednesday, shooting 4-of-18 to finish with 14 points, three 3-pointers, five assists, five rebounds, one steal and one block.

"He's a handful in the pick-and-rolls and there is only so much you can do with that little guy," Dwyane Wade said after Game 4. Miami's defense did enough tonight, keeping the Hornets' leading scorer in check after a 34-point eruption in Game 4, but Charlotte still earned the critical road win. Expect a bounce-back effort from Walker at home on Friday.
Apr 27 - 10:52 PM

Kemba Walker scored a playoff career-high 34 points during a Game 4 89-85 win over the Heat on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist, three steals, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

The Hornets have tied this series 2-2 after the failed to win a playoff game since 2002 before Saturday. Walker has really focused on his scoring with just 3.0 assists per game in this series. The Hornets were pretty bad in Game 1 and 2 in Miami, so it won't be easy for them to get a win on the road.
Apr 25 - 10:36 PM

Kemba Walker fared better during Game 2 with 29 points, five rebounds, one steal and one assist, but it wasn't enough to avoid another loss to the Heat.

Walker did his damage in 42 minutes and was more impactful than he was in Game 1, but other than Al Jefferson he didn't get much help from his teammates. Nic Batum chipped in nine points and seven boards before getting hurt, Marvin Williams failed to score, Jeremy Lin shot 2-of-7 from the field, and the Hornets head back to Charlotte with more questions than answers.
Apr 20 - 9:59 PM

Kemba Walker was quiet during Charlotte's lopsided Game 1 defeat, posting 19 points with one rebound, one assist and a pair of 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He shot 6-of-13 from the field and 5-of-5 from the free throw line with two turnovers in the blowout road loss. The Hornets had three assists as a team in the first half and Walker didn't have any dimes until mid-way through the third quarter, part of the reason Miami dominated nearly every facet of the game. Charlotte will go back to the drawing board for Wednesday's Game 2.
Apr 17 - 8:20 PM

Kemba Walker scored 16 points on 4-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with three rebounds, seven assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block and two turnovers in 33 minutes.

Walker seemed passive for much of the game, and his lackadaisical approach partnered with limited contributions from the rest of the Hornets' starters resulted in a loss for Charlotte despite Washington missing both John Wall (knee) and Bradley Beal (pelvis, exited at the half). Courtney Lee went 2-of-11 from the field on his way to eight points, three boards, two steals, two triples, one block and one turnover, and Cody Zeller put up six points, six boards and one assist in 17 minutes.
Apr 10 - 2:59 PM

Kemba Walker scored 22 points in a 113-99 win over the Nets on Friday, adding four rebounds, four assists, one steal and three blocks in 30 minutes.

He didn't turn the ball over and he has been pretty solid in that regard this year at 2.1 turnovers per game on the season. Walker has been a top-20 for basically the entire season in a mini-breakout campaign. The Hornets are tied with the Heat, but they lose the tiebreaker to put them at No. 6 in the standings.
Apr 8 - 10:16 PM

The Hornets snapped a two-game losing streak with a win in New York on Wednesday, led by Kemba Walker's 34 points on 11-of-18 shooting, including a 7-of-10 mark from downtown.

The Hornets boast the league's 11th most efficient offense, thanks largely because of a philosophical shift toward 3-point shooting -- they used to struggle at the perimeter, but this season they're averaging 10.5 triples (fourth in the league) on 36.0 percent shooting (eighth in the league). Kemba's offense is a major part of that success, and he even rounded out tonight's line with five boards, two assists and two steals.
Apr 6 - 11:09 PM

Kemba Walker could not get going offensively during Tuesday's loss to the Raptors, going 4-of-16 from the field on his way to 11 points, four assists, two boards, one 3-pointer, one steal, one block and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Walker started this one out ice cold, scoring just one point on a technical foul through the entire first half, and he didn’t even convert on one of his attempts until the closing seconds of the third quarter. Owners can expect a bounce-back performance on Wednesday with a much more favorable matchup against the Knicks.
Apr 5 - 10:54 PM

Kemba Walker stuffed the boxscore vs. the Cavaliers with 29 points (9-of-19 FGs, 10-of-11 FTs), six rebounds, seven assists, four steals, one block and one 3-pointer.

The 112-103 defeat leaves Charlotte one game behind the Hawks in the Southeast division, and Walker is eager to make up the difference. "I've been through a lot in the last couple of years with this team," he said. "I think it would be really cool if we could win the division." Even if they don't, his efforts have ensured that their season won't end on April 13.
Apr 3 - 6:16 PM

Kemba Walker scored a game-high 27 points during a 100-91 win over the 76ers on Friday, adding 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

He was one of the biggest letdowns on Tuesday with just a 5-of-19 shooting line against the 76ers on Tuesday, but easily bounced back tonight. Walker's bad game on Tuesday capped a stat-stuffing March, averaging 22.5 points, 4.5 boards, 5.6 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.1 treys. He's held steady as a top-20 player for basically the entire season in standard leagues.
Apr 1 - 9:41 PM

Kemba Walker was hot early during a 112-105 loss to the Pistons on Friday, finishing with 29 points, two rebounds, five assists and six 3-pointers.

He made his six 3-pointers in the first half with 25 points. The Hornets were still down 72-56 at half due to their awful defense, which hasn't been a problem. They're still in the mix for a 3-6 spot in the postseason and have several easy games on the schedule (76ers twice, Knicks and Nets). Walker should be a top-20 player and there is no talk of him getting rest.
Mar 25 - 10:50 PM

Kemba Walker hit just 4-of-14 shots and one 3-pointer for 14 points, four assists and two steals in Tuesday's win.

Walker hit just 2-of-11 shots on Monday and 6-of-18 in his previous game, and is in a funk. He's hit just 32.5 percent of his shots over his last five games and should be ready to break out of the slump sooner than later.
