Give us all of your ping pong balls. Wow it's not like this team can spare anyone with talent.

The Bobcats announced starting guard Gerald Henderson could miss approximately 2-4 weeks with a sprained left foot.

Henderson, Charlotte's leading scorer last season, injured the foot during Saturday night's loss to the Dallas Mavericks. The team initially didn't think the injury was going to be a problem, but further medical tests revealed Henderson sprained the mid-foot area and will miss more time than expected.
Henderson, however, told the Charlotte Observer that he feared he had a torn ligament so the diagnosis of a sprain was welcome news.
"It had potential to be worse where the injury was," Henderson told the newspaper. "It's pretty painful to walk on. It could have been broken. ... It could have been a higher degree of tear of ligaments; I could have had surgery. Not anything like that. So I was happy to hear what he said."
Through two games, Henderson is averaging 12.5 points, three steals, 2.5 assists and two rebounds in 28 minutes. He had 18 points in Charlotte's season-opening win against Indiana last Friday night.

Huge loss for the Cats. He may not be better than a role-playing starter on a good team, but he's very likely Charlotte's best player. I suppose the silver lining is that they aren't really playing for anything this year anyway, so losing him for a bit doesn't hurt them in the long run in any way.

It sounds like at least another week before Charlotte Bobcats captain Gerald Henderson will be well enough to play again.

In an exclusive interview Tuesday with the Observer, Henderson said his sprained left foot is still sore and he hasn’t been cleared for full activity on the basketball court.

“I’d say around a week. I’d have to be able to run and jump first and get a couple of practices in to get myself in decent enough shape because I’ve missed some time,” he said after a session of shooting and ball-handling.
