Jeff Taylor Out for the Season With Ruptured Achilles

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.

    Well, Jonas Jerebko made it back, so I don’t think Taylor is necessarily finnish.
