The Hornets will be without power forward Carl Landru for the next couple weeks as the team announced Sunday that Landry will miss 3-4 weeks with an MCL sprain.
The injury occured Saturday against the Pistons after a collision with Jason Maxiell in the third quarter.
Obviously in response to losing Landry, the Hornets signed forward Lance Thomas for 10 days. Thomas, a 6-8 second-year pro out of Duke, was in training camp with New Orleans and saw brief playing time in two of the Hornets' first three regular season games before being waived on Dec. 31. He spent his first pro season in the D-League.
Not a massive blow to the Hornets as the team is just 4-20 and has lost five straight. They've been without Eric Gordon for pretty much the entire season as well as center Chris Kaman who was being shopped in trade talks. Kaman has returned, but the team isn't built to win right now, which isn't the goal. It's a rebuild for the Hornets and though obviously Monty Williams and the team wish they could have Landry out there, losing him for a couple weeks isn't the end of the world.
