Charlotte Hornets reserve point guard Michael Carter-Williams might require season-ending left-shoulder surgery after spraining his shoulder in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Toronto Raptors, according to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Rookie Malik Monk, who has had his share of rough stretches through his first season in the league, will take his spot as a backup point guard tonight against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The Hornets are now without a versatile asset in Williams, who can be a different matchup for most opposing point guards at a tall 6-foot-7 — presenting a problem in the post, as well as a lengthier defender that can contest shots and get on passing lanes.
