by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Walker underwent surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee on Jan. 28, and was cleared Wednesday to resume basketball activities. Charlotte traded for Mo Williams before the deadline to fill in for Walker. Now Walker is looking forward to playing with Williams once he's back from injury.

"He makes so many plays," Walker said. "He's so smart; he knows when to shoot and when to pass. You can see it in his numbers; he's had some huge assist games."


Hornets' Clifford on Stephenson: Expectations were out of whack
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:38 am ET) When asked about guard Lance Stephenson's recent struggles, Hornets coach Steve Clifford said that Stephenson is a victim of unrealistic expectations, per Chris Mannix of Sports Illustrated.

"A lot of this is totally off base among basketball people," Clifford said. "He's [24] years old. He'd played for one coach in one offense. This is Lance's first time playing with new guys. His attitude has been fine. The expectations were a little out of whack."

Stephenson signed a three-year, $27 million deal to play for the Hornets in the offseason, after a breakout campaign with the Pacers. Since joining Charlotte, his scoring(8.6 points per game) field goal percentage (36.6 percent) and three-point percentage (14.8 percent) have all taken a hit in his new role with the second unit.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9:13 am ET) Knicks point guard Alexey Shved told reporters he plans to play in the NBA next season, according to the New York Post.

"I don't know who said this," Shved said, when asked about his hopes of playing in Europe. "But I've never said this. I'm not thinking about that. I want to stay here.

"I'm not thinking about [free agency]," Shved said. "I still have this season. The next year I'm going to be a free agent, and that's my agent's job. I just want to finish this season in great shape and win a couple more games."

Shved was acquired from the Rockets along with two second-round picks in the deadline-day deal that sent Pablo Prigioni to Houston. The 26-year-old has scored in double figures in four of his last five games. He is averaging 12.0 points while shooting 36.4 percent from the field over that span, and contributing with 4.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists per contest.
