Hornets big men Zeller, Kaminsky battling injuries

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Hornets reserve center Cody Zeller will be out indefinitely with a torn medial meniscus in his left knee.

The injury occurred in the third quarter of Charlotte’s loss against Golden State on Wednesday night. The team said Zeller will be exploring treatment options and updates on his status will be provided when available.

Zeller has appeared in 19 games and is averaging 7.2 points and 5.5 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per game. He started the last two seasons, but moved to a reserve role when Dwight Howard joined the team.

Also, Hornets backup forward Frank Kaminsky suffered a sprained right ankle in the game against Golden State in the second quarter and will miss Friday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls. He left the arena with his foot in a boot.
