Hornets: Kemba Walker to miss 6 weeks after knee surgery

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) The Charlotte Hornets expect point guard Kemba Walker will miss a minimum of six weeks after undergoing surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee.

Walker had surgery on Wednesday in New York, the team said.

If Walker returns in six weeks, he'd be back on the court March 11. That's more than a month before the NBA playoffs start on April 18.
