Top Injuries in Franchise History

Back in 2005, Baron Davis was in Charlotte with them still being the Hornets, the original Hornets. Davis had some Achilles issues that hindered him that season. Davis is one of the forgotten studs from those Charlotte days. Back when Chris Paul was a member of of the Hornets, he had a few injuries, but a big one was in 2006 when he tore a ligament in his right thumb. After returning, he went right back to the bench with a sprained ankle. He eventually had to have surgery on his ankle to get a screw to repair a stress fracture. Later in 2010, Paul had surgery on his left knee for a torn meniscus. Paul has had some bad luck in his career, but nothing more so than his days in New Orleans. This was not it for Paul, as he had a torn ligament later on in 2010. After Paul’s departure to Los Angeles, he left the Hornets injury report a little thin from there on out.

Jarrett Jack did suffer a stress fracture in his right foot, which had him miss the rest of the 2012 season. Kemba Walker had to have surgery on his knee back in 2015, but has made full recovery moving forward. Walker has not had major injuries outside of this one, but it limited the Hornets offense without him on the court. Nicolas Batum has battled some injuries in his career, dealing with major sprains, but also some pretty bad elbow injuries that had an effect on his shooting during his time in Charlotte. He tore a ligament in his elbow, which he eventually came back from later on in the 2017 season.
