Kemba Walker scored 18 points with three assists, two rebounds, one steal and two 3-pointers in Saturday’s 85-102 loss to the Spurs.

He snapped a six-game streak of scoring at least 20 points in a game, but a subpar night against a team like the Spurs is to be expected. Walker will get two days of rest before heading to Houston to take on the Rockets. This is a tough matchup against Patrick Beverley who has been playing some good defense. Walker owners should temper their expectation in his next game.
Jan 8 - 12:27 AM

Kemba Walker hit 12-of-24 shots for 32 points with five assists, seven rebounds and four 3-pointers in Thursday’s loss to the Pistons.

It was a valiant effort from Walker, but not enough to get the victory for the Hornets. This was his third time in the last four games that he has scored more than 30 points. He is playing like an All-Star, averaging a career-high 22.9 points and 2.7 3-pointers made per game.
Jan 5 - 11:10 PM

Kemba Walker stayed hot on Monday, hitting 13-of-19 shots, 6-of-8 3-pointers and 2-of-2 free throws for 34 points, 11 rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in 38 minutes on Monday.

Walker scored 37 points on Saturday and the 11 boards are a season high for the high-scoring shooting guard. The unconventional double-double was his fifth of the season and his second that included points and rebounds. He's especially hot right now, averaging 25.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, 4.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 3.2 3-pointers on 53 percent shooting over his last five games.
Jan 2 - 11:54 PM

Kemba Walker scored a game-high 37 points with five assists, five rebounds and three 3-pointers in Saturday’s loss to the Cavs.

This was his 23rd game with 20+ points this season and is fifth in the East. It was a valiant effort for Walker, but still not enough to get a victory.

Kemba Walker scored 22 points in a 91-82 win over the Heat on Thursday, adding seven rebounds, four assists, one steal and four 3-pointers.

As great as Kemba has been right now, he's going to be an internet meme for a long time. Much like Nick Young, Walker launched a three and started to celebrate just before it rimmed out (video in link below). As for his shooting trends, Walker has slightly cooled off from his 48.3 percent from the field in November to just 43.2 percent in December. He'll likely be closer to December going forward, but Walker is still a stud.

Kemba Walker scored 21 points in Wednesday's 120-101 win over the Magic, hitting 8-of-12 shots in just 25 minutes.

"He makes me shake my head because I haven't had an answer for him the last few times we've played him," Magic coach Frank Vogel said. Walker averaged 26.7 points per game against Vogel's Pacers last season, so that's what he's referring to. Walker added five assists, three rebounds and two triples, and he should be well rested for Thursday's game vs. the Heat after sitting out the entire fourth quarter Wednesday. It would be a huge upset if he didn't make the All-Star team.

Kemba Walker hit 11-of-26 shots and four 3-pointers for 28 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists, just missing a triple-double in Tuesday's thrilling comeback win over the Lakers.

The Hornets dug themselves out of a 19-point hole in the third quarter and Walker had a key late rebound with the game on the line. He's hit 10 assists just three times this season, but after doing so way back on Nov. 7, he's also done it in back-to-back games in the past three days.

Kemba Walker scored 18 points with six rebounds, 10 assists and four 3-pointers in 34 minutes against the Hawks during a 107-99 win on Saturday.

The Hornets needed a win tonight and were able to snap their four-game losing streak. As for Walker, he's not shooting the ball quite as well as he did in November. In his last seven games, he's actually seen an increase to the percentage of his points in the paint, but he's been unassisted on a whopping 77.6 percent of his makes. Walker is a stud regardless.

Kemba Walker (personal) will start against the Hawks on Saturday.

He missed Friday's game in Boston for personal reasons and was always expected to be back. While Walker does struggle on the road, he gets an awesome matchup against the weak perimeter defense of the Hawks.
Sat, Dec 17, 2016 06:41:00 PM

Kemba Walker (personal) will not play against the Celtics on Friday night and will rejoin the team for Saturday against the Hawks.

Hopefully everything is OK with Walker and his family. The Hornets will obviously miss the No. 16 scorer in the NBA, and Walker is also tied for sixth in the NBA for actual time of possession of the ball. With him out, Ramon Sessions should get heavy run in the first unit with Brian Roberts backing him up. Expect Nicolas Batum to handle the ball a lot more, as well.
Thu, Dec 15, 2016 02:47:00 PM

Kemba Walker (knee) scored 12 points on 4-of-16 shooting in Monday's loss to the Pacers.

He was moving around well and simply had an off night, adding five assists, two rebounds, two steals, one triple and three turnovers in 35 minutes. His knee is fine and Walker should bounce back on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 10:52:00 PM

Steve Clifford said that he doesn't expect Kemba Walker's bruised left knee being an issue Monday night vs. the Pacers.

Clifford said that Walker "moved perfectly normal" during shootaround, so owners can deploy him with confidence for tonight's game.

Kemba Walker (left knee contusion) is fully expected to play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

He was a full participant in the morning shootaround and was listed as probable, and he previously said that he was going to play. We'll have official confirmation prior to tip-off, but Walker can be penciled into active lineups.
Mon, Dec 12, 2016 12:23:00 PM

Kemba Walker (left knee contusion) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Pacers.

This is awesome news for the Hornets and it confirms that his injury is relatively minor. Walker said after Saturday's game that he would play Monday, so this isn't a huge surprise. If you picked up Ramon Sessions as insurance, it's probably safe to cut him back to the wire.
