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.

hopefully now mr. Kaman will get some run. win or lose rebuilding or not the hornets owe it to their fans to put the best team on the court. the fans are the ones who pay the fans no revenue. so if the hornets are trying to tank the season and get the 1st pick in the lottery they should not be so obvious about it. if Mr. Kaman refused to play or play at 100% effert the coach and gm would black ball him. but just as life the ones with the power makes and breaks the rules. the young players need an experienced player(s) to lead them. u just cant throw the youngins in the water without supervision, or can u?
        anywho hears to all the teams run by the league. ( stern) go figure. <<<B 4 REAL>>>
