Before Thursday's game against the Sixers, Bobcats forward Tyrus Thomas was a last-minute scratch due to swelling in his knee.
The team sent Thomas for an MRI and the results aren't good.
Thomas, who has a torn meniscus, will miss up to the next eight weeks with the injury.
On the season, Thomas was averaging 11.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this season.
With the injury to Thomas, both Kwame Brown and Nazr Mohammed should see their minutes expand.
