CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- 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.
Through two games Henderson is averaging 12.5 points, 3 steals, 2.5 assists and 2 rebounds in 28 minutes. He had 18 points in Charlotte's season-opening win against Indiana last Friday night.
Either Ramon Sessions or Ben Gordon will take Henderson's spot in the starting lineup when the Bobcats (1-1) host the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday night.
