Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap says Gerald Henderson will return to the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Orlando Magic in place of rookie Jeffery Taylor.
The Bobcats are looking to snap a 10-game losing streak.
Henderson began the season as a starter but played only two games before suffering a foot injury. Henderson eventually returned, but has been playing in a reserve role ever since.
Henderson is averaging 12.9 points per game and Taylor 7.9.
For Orlando, Al Harrington (right knee rehab) and Hedo Turkoglu (broken left hand) are both out.

Although it feels like he was playing in the league yesterday, Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan is nearly 50 years old.Back on Wednesday, Michael decided to help out some of the young Bobcats players at practice and showed that despite being at his advanced age, he can still get it done:
The Charlotte Bobcats changed their uniforms, colors and font entering this year. I am sure part of it was to distance themselves from the previous season when the team won only seven games and establish a new identity.
It did not matter much to Jameer Nelson, a player that likely haunts Bobcats fans' dreams. It was still the Bobcats to him.
Nelson closed the game with...
In their coverage of the latest grim Bobcats loss to the Orlando Magic, the Observer pointed out that slow starts have been a problem, as has defensive rebounding. It’s true: the Bobcats are second-to-last in average 1st quarter scoring margin (-4.5). And their defensive rebounding rate, which I’ve documented with the regularity of a gallon [...]

As the Endless Winter of our Discontent reaches the halfway mark, it is time for the Bobcats to host the Orlando Magic in the latest chapter of “The Rivalry That Never Was.” There was a lot of talk about the birth of a nasty rivalry after the Cats were swept in their very first and thus far only playoffs appearance. But the Bobcats fall from mediocrity happened so quickly that...
