Description: Charlotte G/F Jeff Taylor will miss the rest of the season after he ruptured his right Achilles tendon Friday, according to the Charlotte Observer.
Insight: Taylor had been starting at small forward since Michael Kidd-Gilchrist broke his hand. The team will now have to give more minutes to Anthony Tolliver and Chris Douglas-Roberts.

Description: Charlotte G/F Jeff Taylor suffered a right Achilles injury during Friday's game and is questionable for Saturday's game against Utah.
Insight: The swingman has started seven of Charlotte's eight games since Michael Kidd-Gilchrist broke his hand (Taylor missed a game with a left heel contusion during that timeframe), but he hasn't scored in double figures in his last six.

Insight: He only had to sit out one game. Taylor has averaged just over 24 minutes per game this season but he should see more time while Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is out with a broken hand.

Description: Charlotte coach Steve Clifford said G/F Jeff Taylor (heel) "should be good to go" Wednesday against the Magic, according to nba.com/bobcats.

12/9/2013 10:42:00 AM
Description: Charlotte G/F Jeff Taylor is questionable for Monday's game against Golden State due to a heel injury.
Insight: Taylor (8.6 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 0.8 apg) has been starting at small forward in place of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. If he can't go, the Bobcats may be forced to use Gerald Henderson or James Southerland at the three.

Description: Charlotte G/F Jeff Taylor was barely able to practice on Sunday. He might not play Monday against Golden State. SOURCE: Rick Bonnell, Charlotte Observer
Insight: Apparently it's a heel injury. Taylor has been starting at small forward in place of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. If he can't go, the Bobcats may be forced to use Gerald Henderson or Syracuse rookie James Southerland at the three.
 
12/6/2013 9:46:00 PM
Description: Jeff Taylor led the Bobcats to a win Friday against Philadelphia with a team-high 20 points, eight rebounds, two threes, one steal and one block.
Insight: Taylor has taken over for Michael Kidd-Gilchrist as the starting small forward after Gilchrist suffered a fractured hand on Tuesday.
 
4/3/2013 6:17:00 PM
Description: Charlotte swingman Jeff Taylor won't be in action Wednesday against Philadelphia.
Insight: Taylor (6.1 ppg) has been dealing with soreness in his right foot. Former UConn stars Ben Gordon (11.7 ppg) and Jeff Adrien (4.1 ppg) should both see a decent amount of playing time in Taylor's absence.
 
12/13/2012 10:19:00 PM
Description: Bobcats rookie G/F Jeffery Taylor scored 12 points on 3-of-6 shooting Thursday, his highest point total in seven games this month.
Insight: Taylor has held onto his starting job so far despite Gerald Henderson returning but he's been ineffective, shooting just 31 percent from the field and .067 from 3-point range in the six games prior to Thursday. We expect Henderson to assume the starting role at some point, rendering Taylor useless in fantasy circles.
 
11/30/2012 9:28:00 PM
Description: Bobcats rookie G/F Jeff Taylor had 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting Friday against Philadelphia.
Insight: Taylor has started 13 straight games in place of the injured Gerald Henderson. While he has scored in double figures in six of his last seven games, Henderson is nearing a return and will likely send Taylor back to obscurity.
 
11/24/2012 10:37:00 PM
Description: Bobcats rookie G/F Jeff Taylor has scored at least 10 points in four straight games.
Insight: Taylor has started the last 10 games for Charlotte in place of injured SG Gerald Henderson. The 6-foot-7 Vanderbilt product has made 7-of-13 from 3-point land in his last four contests.
