Charlotte Bobcats forward Jeff Taylor is done for the remainder of the season, having ruptured his right Achilles tendon. Per the Charlotte Observer:
Taylor, in his second NBA season, was averaging 8.3 points and 2.4 rebounds. He became a starter eight games ago after teammate Michael Kidd-Gilchrist suffered a broken left hand in a Dec. 3 road loss to the Dallas Mavericks.
Kidd-Gilchrist isn’t expected back until sometime in January. Coach Steve Clifford said recently Kidd-Gilchrist will remain in a cast at least until Dec. 26, when he’ll be re-evaluated medically. Kidd-Gilchrist’s fracture is at the base of his left ring finger.
