Kemba Walker left Tuesday's game late in the fourth quarter with a leg cramp and did not return as the game was well out of reach. The Bobcats went on to defeat the Warriors in ORACLE Arena 91-75.
Walker struggled from the field in his first game back after missing the last seven due to an ankle injury as he finished with just seven points on 3 of 11 shooting from the field, including 1-for-4 from three point range, to go with six boards, seven assists, a steal, three turnovers but did finish with a positive 15 +/- rating.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
