Hornets´ Walker undergoes third surgery on left knee

17 May 2017 23:34

Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker underwent his third left knee surgery in as many years, the NBA team announced on Wednesday.

The procedure, a successful minor arthroscopic surgery, usually comes with a six-week recovery period, but Walker's left knee is starting to become a concern.

He appeared in 79 games last season — his sixth with Charlotte — averaging a career-high 23.2 points, 5.5 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.1 steals.

Walker, the ninth overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, made his first All-Star appearance in 2016-17.

While Walker is expected to be healthy well before next season, it will be worth monitoring his oft-repaired left knee moving forward.
