Hornets' Brian Roberts ready to fill in for injured Kemba Walker


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2015) With Hornets guard Kemba Walker out indefinitely due to knee surgery, Brian Roberts is ready to step up in his absence. It's a role that is not unfamiliar to Roberts, who started 42 games last season for the Pelicans after Jrue Holiday suffered a tibia fracture.

“Here’s another opportunity for me to step up and help this team win games,” Roberts said Monday, per the Charlotte Observer. “It’s a challenge and everybody has to step up and take a little bit more ownership. Filling that void will be a group effort.”

Hornets coach Steve Clifford has praised Roberts for his play in limited action this season. He averages 6.8 points and 2.1 assists and 17.4 minutes. He also shoots 37 percent from 3-point range.

“Organize and score,” Clifford said of Roberts' strengths. “We play with a purpose when he’s in there. And with the pick-and-roll and the catch-and-shoot, he puts pressure on the defense.”

"Just to know I can come in help a team win games, that is something you can't teach," Roberts said. "Just have experience that I was fortunate enough to have last year. And it looks like I'm going to have to do that a little bit here."

Roberts added three rebounds and dished out three assists on the night.

"One of the advantage of bringing him here was that he started so many games last year so he's comfortable in that role," Hornets coach Steve Clifford said.
