It's been a rough week for the Charlotte Hornets.

The Charlotte Hornets have lost center Cody Zeller for the foreseeable future after he was diagnosed with a torn medial meniscus in his left knee, stemming from Wednesday night's game against the Golden State Warriors. First, coach Steve Clifford had to take a leave of absence from the team for personal health reasons. The injury occurred with 49 seconds left in the third quarter of the Hornets game against Golden State on December 6. Zeller will be listed as out indefinitely as he explores treatment options and updates on his status will be provided when available.

The team will also be without another big man in Frank Kaminsky against the Chicago Bulls tonight, still nursing a sprained ankle.

Zeller went down in the third quarter after scoring six points and grabbing eight rebounds in 16 minutes.

This injury will mean more minutes for starter Dwight Howard and Johnny O'Bryant III, who can crack the rotation if Kaminsky is to miss more time with his ankle.

All of this is another blow for a 9-14 Hornets team that is fighting to get back into the playoff picture in the East.
