(Reuters) - The struggling Charlotte Bobcats were dealt a blow as leading scorer Gerald Henderson is expected to be sidelined for two-to-four weeks with a strained hamstring, the National Basketball Association team said on Thursday.
The guard suffered the injury to his right leg in the third quarter of Wednesday's 112-68 loss to the Portland Trailblazers and had an MRI scan on Thursday.
Henderson, 24, is averaging a team-high 15 points to go along with 4.4 rebounds in 21 games this season.
The struggling Bobcats, whose 3-20 record is the league's worst this season, have lost their last 10 games.
