The Hornets announced Monday that Kemba Walker will undergo surgery to repair a torn lateral meniscus in his left knee. Walker, 24, flew to New York to have a second opinion on his knee. The Hornets say that Dr. David Altchek confirmed team orthopedic physician Marcus Cook's previous diagnosis, although the team previously only listed Walker as having a cyst on the knee. It's possible the surgery could end Walker's season.

His dress shirt unbuttoned at the neck, Jason Kidd looks relaxed and calm on the sideline while coaching the Milwaukee Bucks. At 22-22, the Bucks are enjoying success while sticking with their rebuilding blueprint during Kidd's first year in Milwaukee. Expectations outside of Milwaukee were understandably low then. Milwaukee started a surprising 12-12 before Parker was lost for the year on Dec. 15 after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.

Kobe Bryant will have surgery Wednesday on his torn right rotator cuff, likely ending his 19th season with the Los Angeles Lakers. The team announced Bryant's surgery Monday. The Lakers will announce a timetable for Bryant's recovery after surgery, but coach Byron Scott anticipates losing the third-leading scorer in NBA history for the rest of the year. His famously resilient body has finally worn down from the accumulated grind of 19 seasons and several lengthy postseasons with the Lakers, including five NBA title runs.

LeBron James sat in his corner cubicle with a towel wrapped around his waist and a look of satisfaction on his face that had been missing for weeks. So has his team after two trades improving Cleveland at both ends of the floor. ''We've played some great basketball as of late.'' Not surprisingly, James is at the heart of Cleveland's turnaround. On Monday, he was named the Eastern Conference's player of the week after averaging 27.8 points, 6.3 rebounds, 6.8 assists and 2.3 steals in leading the Cavs to a 4-0 record since Jan. 19.

Detroit Pistons guard Brandon Jennings will miss the rest of the season after he ruptured his left Achilles tendon. Jennings was injured in the third quarter of Saturday night's 101-86 loss at Milwaukee. ''It's definitely a tough loss for us,'' Pistons forward Greg Monroe said before Sunday night's game at Toronto. ''He's a huge part of the success we've had recently.'' Coming into the day, Detroit had won 12 of 16 to climb back into the Eastern Conference playoff race after a terrible start.

Ty Lawson picked apart the Washington Wizards most of the night. Lawson scored 31 point and dished out 12 assists in his return to the Nuggets lineup but missed a tying jumper in the waning seconds of overtime in a 117-115 loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday. ''I think he thought the time was running out and he shot a fadeaway,'' Washington's John Wall said. ''I was like, 'Thank you.' I thought it was still going to go in because he was making just about everything he put up tonight.'' Wall scored six of his 19 points in overtime and had 16 assists and Kris Humphries had a season-high 21 points and 14 rebounds to help Washington stop a two-game skid.

Golden State coach Steve Kerr figured his team was due for an off night after four consecutive blowout wins. Fortunately for the Warriors, it happened at Oracle Arena, where they haven't lost in more than two months. Stephen Curry had 22 points and 11 assists, Klay Thompson scored 31 points and Golden State beat the Boston Celtics 114-111 on Sunday night. It was a night where everybody had to fight through.'' The Warriors have won 19 consecutive home games for the longest active home streak in the NBA.
