ANALYSIS: Most expected Ball to miss the remainder of the season with the injury. While Charania does not offer a clear expectation, even the possibility of a return brings hope to the Hornets and Ball's Rookie of the Year candidacy. The No. 3 overall pick was averaging 15.9 points, 6.1 assists and 5.9 rebounds per game with Charlotte.
