Charlotte Hornets point guard Kemba Walker, who has been held out of the previous two games with a bruised left shoulder, is on track to play Monday against the Orlando Magic.
Walker initially suffered the injury after colliding with San Antonio Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge.
Kemba Walker fully participated in practice Sunday. Barring a setback, he’s a go for Magic game Monday.

"I'm good. Just get back out there and do what I do. Be aggressive, be a leader, do what I can do to help my team win. I hate missing games… I just want to get back to competing." – @KembaWalker pic.twitter.com/9cq2iEnjOM
