An MRI revealed that Charlotte guard Ramon Sessions will miss two to four weeks with a second-degree knee sprain, according to the team. The meniscus and ligaments in the Bobcats point guard's knee are intact and the injury diagnosed as an MCL sprain won't require surgery.
Sessions injured his knee on Wednesday during a 99-78 loss to the Brooklyn Nets. He played 20 minutes and recorded nine points, two assists and three rebounds for the 13-48 Bobcats.
Averaging a career-high 14.4 points and 3.8 assists on the season, Sessions' minutes have dropped of late. He's averaged 27 minutes per game for the year, but in four games in March he's only played 20 minutes per night as head coach Mike Dunlap has gone deep into the bench as Charlotte's struggles have continued.
The Bobcats have lost eight in a row, and things don't get easier with a meeting with the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday.
Sessions has backed up the younger Kemba Walker most of this season. He is signed through next year with a $5 million per year deal.
