DALLAS (AP) -- Charlotte guard Michael Kidd-Gilchrist fractured his left hand in a loss to Dallas and coach Steve Clifford isn't sure when the second-year player will be back.
Kidd-Gilchrist said he didn't know he was injured Tuesday night until he looked down and his left ring finger "was messed up." He was replaced with 4:35 remaining in the third quarter of the Mavericks' 89-82 win over the Bobcats.
Clifford called the loss of Kidd-Gilchrist "a big hit." The coach said he might have a timetable on Wednesday for Kidd-Gilchrist's return.
The 6-foot-7 Kidd-Gilchrist is averaging 9.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game.
