Byron Mullens could return for the Charlotte Bobcats' upcoming five-game road trip, according to Bobcats beat writer Rick Bonnell. The road trip begins Monday at Chicago, so it's conceivable he could be activated for that game.
Mullens has been sidelined since December 22 with an ankle sprain. In 27 games, Mullens averaged a respectable 11.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, 1.37 3-pointers, 1.5 assists, .8 steals and .8 blocks in 31 minutes. The threes are a big bonus from the big man.
His weakness is shooting (37.1 FG%, 70.9 FT%). He's 16-percent owned in Yahoo. Keep an eye on his return.
