DeSagana Diop out 1-2 weeks

The Charlotte Bobcats announced today that center DeSagana Diop will miss approximately 1-2 weeks due to a sprained medial collateral ligament in his right knee. Diop suffered the injury, which was initially diagnosed as a right knee bruise, in the third quarter of Tuesday’s game against New Jersey. Diop was re-examined on Wednesday by team physician Dr. Glenn Perry, who diagnosed the injury as an MCL sprain and ordered an MRI to confirm the diagnosis.

The Charlotte Bobcats, who became the NBA’s 30th franchise when they joined the league in 2004-05, return to action Friday when they host the Cleveland Cavaliers at 7:00 pm ET.  The game can be seen on SportSouth and heard on WFNZ 610 AM.
