Charlotte Hornets Guard Kemba Walker Nearing Return From Injury

News Observer—February 28, 2015

The lean guard running the court Wednesday at Chicago’s United Center looked familiar, although his trademark hesitation moves and crossover dribble were absent. He just ran and shot, ran and shot, avoiding even the suggestion of pressure on his left knee.

Although his work was limited, Charlotte Hornet fans probably would have cheered.

The run and shoot session was Kemba Walker’s first since Jan. 28, when he underwent surgery on his left knee.

Walker, who is among the Hornets’ leaders in scoring, assists and steals, was unquestionably their best player before he suffered a torn meniscus. Dr. David Altchek performed the surgery at New York’s Hospital for Special Surgery, and Walker will meet with him in New York Wednesday.
