Bobcats head coach Steve Clifford made it clear Monday's home game against the Toronto Raptors will be the first one missed in Walker's 190-game NBA career.
As we previously reported, X-Rays came back negative and Walker is likely to have an MRI on Sunday, but Clifford has already decided that Walker will not play in their next game on Monday, which upgrades Ramon Sessions' value for however long Walker is out.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Cecil Shorts might be ready to play against Jacksonville in Week 6.
Both Shorts and Nate Washington missed Thursday's game, making way for Jaelen Strong and Keith Mumphery. While strong caught two TDs, Mumphery was a non-factor. Strong earned himself more playing time in the coming weeks, possibly coming at Shorts' expense, though it could come at Washington's as coach Bill O'Brien said that Shorts had a better chance of playing against Jacksonville than Washington does.
