Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker will not play tonight against the Toronto Raptors due to a bruised left shoulder.
Walker suffered the injury after colliding with San Antonio Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge during the second half of Saturday’s home loss. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Michael Carter-Williams.
With Kemba (left shoulder bruise) OUT, Michael Carter-Williams starts at point guard for the @hornets. Malik Monk backup. Also, Julyan Stone listed as probable.
