Charlotte Hornets All-Star guard Kemba Walker is out for Wednesday night’s game at the Air Canada Centre because of a bruised left shoulder. Michael Carter-Williams will start in Walker’s place against the Raptors.
Walker was injured in a third-quarter collision with San Antonio’s LaMarcus Aldridge in Saturday’s home loss to the Spurs. He went down in pain after colliding with Aldridge and headed to the locker room, before returning to the court later in the quarter.
