Kemba Walker led the NBA this season in touches per game at 100.3.
He ranked fourth in total time of possession and has quickly become a facilitator with a career-high 6.1 assists per game. Walker also brought his turnovers down to 2.3 per game this season, but his shooting percentage did drop down to 39.3 percent due to struggling a bit around the rim. He and the Bobcats will have their hands full with the Heat in the first round. Apr 17 - 4:36 PM

Date:

Kemba Walker hit just 6-of-16 shots and missed all six of this 3-point attempts, but he still finished with 22 points, seven rebounds, eight assists, a steal and a block in a tough win over the Bulls.

The Bobcats needed this win to possibly move up to No. 6, but it looks like the Wizards are going to win, setting up a Bobcats vs. Heat first-round playoff matchup.
Apr 16 - 9:51 PM

Kemba Walker, who hit just 1-of-9 shots on Monday, said on Tuesday that his groin feels good.

Consider the injury to be behind him as the Bobcats prepare for Round 1 of the playoffs, where they'll likely face the Heat.
Apr 15 - 1:46 PM

Kemba Walker (groin) returned to action in Monday's win over the Hawks, hitting just 1-of-9 shots (including a three) for five points, zero rebounds and seven assists in 24 minutes.

Clearly he's not at 100 percent but a chance at the No. 6 seed, which would avoid Miami, is still on the line and he's going to push through if he can. Gerald Henderson was just as bad but without an excuse, hitting an identical 1-of-9 shots for four points, five rebounds and three assists, and Al Jefferson went for 27 and 15 with one steal against the Hawks' depleted squad.
Apr 14 - 10:45 PM

Kemba Walker (groin) will start against the Hawks on Monday.

He missed two games with a sore groin and must be feeling well. Walker can be placed back in all fantasy lineups while Luke Ridnour can be cut across the board.
Apr 14 - 6:54 PM

Kemba Walker (groin injury) is expected to play vs. the Hawks on Monday.

Walker made it through shootaround without any setbacks so it seems like he's ready to start after missing the past two games. Charlotte is still one game behind the sixth-place Wizards, so depending upon the outcome of Monday's games they can still move up the rankings.
Apr 14 - 12:06 PM

Kemba Walker (groin) will miss his second straight game vs. the 76ers on Saturday.

Luke Ridnour gets another start at PG in his absence, and Gary Neal should also take on a bigger role as Charlotte tries to knock off the lowly 76ers while gearing up for the playoffs. Walker remains day-to-day and his absence may be somewhat precautionary as the Bobcats have no incentive to push him with a playoff spot locked up.
Apr 12 - 5:30 PM

Kemba Walker (groin) will not play against the Celtics on Friday night.

Kemba played 44 minutes on Wednesday and he may have suffered the injury late in that game. The team is hoping he'll be ready to go on Saturday and maybe the team is playing it safe considering they're already in the playoffs. Luke Ridnour will start and is possibility as a fantasy option. Walker owners will want to check back for his status on Saturday.
Apr 11 - 6:05 PM

Kemba Walker (groin) is questionable for Friday's game against the Celtics.

This comes out of left field as Walker played 44 minutes in Wednesday's win at Washington. He apparently sustained the groin tweak late in that one. Beat writer Rick Bonnell does not expect Walker to play Friday night given the tricky nature of soft-tissue injuries and how close we are to the playoffs. Luke Ridnour, Gary Neal and Chris Douglas-Roberts all figure to get a boost in minutes until Walker returns. None are very exciting fantasy plug-n-plays.

Kemba Walker turned in his first triple-double of the season during a 91-80 win over the Magic on Friday, scoring 13 points with 10 boards, 10 assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

It's the fourth triple-double in franchise history and Kemba's first trip-dub since Jan. 28, 2012. Walker also turned his ankle in the first quarter, but it looked to be very minor and we highly doubt it will cost him time for Saturday's game. He gets a great matchup against Kyrie Irving and should be in all lineups for that one.
Apr 4 - 9:53 PM

Kemba Walker suffered an apparent ankle sprain against the Magic on Friday and went to the locker room, but he will return.

He was escorted by a trainer, but did not need any assistance. Walker just needed to get re-taped and he sounds like he should be ready to go. For what it's worth, it looked like a very minor sprain and we wouldn't expect this to affect his status for Saturday either.
Apr 4 - 7:25 PM

Kemba Walker had just eight points and five assists in Wednesday's blowout of the Sixers.

It's a massive blow to owners who were hoping Walker would punish the Sixers' Swiss cheese defense. Instead, he battled foul trouble and then the Bobcats sat their starters for the majority of the second half. Walker projects to bounce back in a big way against the Magic on Friday night.
Apr 2 - 10:04 PM

Kemba Walker scored 24 points on 8-of-25 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, eight assists and one steal in Friday's overtime loss.

Walker hit 6-of-7 free throws to try and balance out that crooked shooting line but that's still going to leave a mark. Al Jefferson was also cooking with 20 points, eight boards and four steals in the loss.
Mar 28 - 9:58 PM

Kemba Walker hit just 8-of-21 shots and two 3-pointers, but was still able to finish with 20 points, five rebounds, 12 assists, a steal and two turnovers in Wednesday's overtime win against the Nets.

Walker's shot will leave him at times, but he's still one of the better point guard options in fantasy this season. He had 22 points in his previous game, and has scored 20 or more in five of his last six games.
Mar 26 - 9:58 PM

Kemba Walker scored a team-high 22 points vs. the Rockets during a 100-89 loss on Monday, adding four boards, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's topped 20 points in four of his last five and is taking more shots. Walker has shot a respectable 43.4 percent from the field in that span, averaging 19.2 points, 3.2 boards, 6.2 dimes, 0.6 steals, 0.6 blocks and 2.6 triples. He's had a mixture of good and bad matchups in that span and his slump from a month ago seems like a distant memory.
