Update on Jeff Taylor
Q: How is small forward Jeff Taylorís readiness for training camp after missing most of last season with a ruptured Achilles tendon?
Hornets coach Steve Clifford: "Unfortunately, Jeff has a family situation in Sweden (keeping him away from Charlotte). Nothing can be done about that and you know heís an exceptional worker, but heís had to miss our five optional workouts. So itís hard to get a feel for where heís at. He did a couple of summer-league practices. Medically heís fine. So itís just a matter of having more continuity, so that when he plants and cuts and jumps heís confident (in his recovery.)"
