Byron Mullens, who is expected to return from his sprained ankle on Monday against the Heat, will only play 11-15 minutes in his first game back.
In other words, fantasy owners should expect to exercise patience with Mullens. The team won't rush him back with how much time he's missed, and the Bobcats will rightfully work him in at a gradual pace. "I wouldn't say I'm 100 percent, but at a point where I can go," Mullens said. While he's had no trouble running and cutting, Mullens is still having issues jumping off of his left foot. The risk for Mullens to re-injure himself is high if he returns at less than full strength.
