Sessions has been diagnosed with a second degree MCL sprain in his left knee. The team also announced that he will not need surgery as his meniscus and ligaments are all in place.

Sessions did play on Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets. The Bobcats lost the game 99-78 after dominating the first half, but giving up in the second half.

After complaining of pain after the game, Sessions had an MRI done on Thursday in which his injuries were determined.

The Bobcats acquired Sessions as a free agent. This season he is has an average of 14.4 points per game, 3.8 assists per game, and 2.8 rebounds per game. His career average is 11.6 points per game, 4.8 assists per game, and 3.1 rebounds per game.

He left the Los Angeles Lakers last season and signed a deal with the Bobcats. He remains a reserve player for Charlotte.

Many expect Sessions to return after two weeks, but the injury could take longer to heal and keep him out for the next month.

The Bobcats have lost eight in a row, but hope to turn things around by upsetting the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight.
