Every Hornets fans' worst fear has come true.

It turns out that Kemba Walker not only had a cyst on his left knee, but he also suffered a torn lateral meniscus as well.

A timetable for Walker's return will not be announced until after the surgery, but expect Walker to be out four to six weeks at minimum. Among the notable players who have recently suffered meniscus injuries: Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook and J.R. Smith.

Walker currently ranks sixth in the NBA in assist/turnover ratio and leads the team in minutes, points and assists.

I believe I speak on behalf of all of At The Hive when I say get well soon, Kemba. You will sorely be missed.
