Bobcats hopeful for Walker's return against Warriors tomorrow:

Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker has been sidelined with a second-degree sprain in his left ankle since January 18, an injury he suffered in an 104-96 overtime loss to the Miami Heat.

Walker has been eager to rejoin his teammates on the floor during the latest four game road trip and it appears that he may get his wish when the Bobcats lock horns with the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night in Oakland.

The Bobcats hoped to get Walker back last week, but during a shootaround before the Los Angeles Lakers game on Friday he still felt considerable soreness in the ankle, prompting the team to shelve him for both that game and the loss to the Suns the following night.

Walker was a full participant in the Bobcats practice session at a health club in San Francisco on Monday and all signs lead to him taking the floor opposite Stephen Curry in a rematch from a game that saw both players combine for 74 points in 115-111 win for Charlotte on December 9.

The Bobcats (21-28) are also looking to finish the road trip at 3-1 with a victory over the Warriors, which would also be the team's 22nd win of the year eclipsing their total number of victories just a year ago.
