Hornets hope to have Jeff Taylor ready before summer league


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Hornets forward Jeff Taylor is still recovering from a ruptured Achilles and head coach Steve Clifford remains hopeful of having him ready to practice with the summer-league team in July, the Charlotte Observer reports. However, he does want him to take a cautious approach in his recovery so that he doesn't risk re-injuring his Achilles.

"He wants to do everything today, and it's not that kind of injury," Clifford said. "The doctor said they're happy with where he's at. He needs to keep going at the rate they want him to."
