The Hornets released a press release Wednesday morning saying that Kemba Walkerhad undergone a second surgery on that same knee he tore his meniscus in last season. Via Hornets.com:
The Charlotte Hornets announced today that guard Kemba Walker underwent a successful minor arthroscopic procedure on his left knee. Typical recovery time for Walker’s procedure is approximately six weeks.
The six-week timeline for his recovery will put him back on the court sometime in July, which is pretty routine for this type of injury.
In May 2016, Walker had surgery to repair a torn meniscus in the left knee.
There was some initial consternation from Hornets fans when the team gave Walked a four-year, $48 million extension in October 2014.
The six-year NBA veteran appeared in 79 games for the Hornets last season for the Hornets, averaging a career-high 23.2 points, 5.5 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 34.7 minutes per game.
He was named to the Eastern Conference All-Star team for the first time in his career.
