Due to a knee injury, Hornets center Emeka Okafor missed 39 games in a season that saw the Hornets have the second highest rate of games missed due to injury or illness by its' players.  Over the course of the next two years, Okafor will be owed $28 million but the Hornets could make Okafor a casualty of the amnesty clause to create cap space if his health doesn't improve.

"He’s in a situation where we got to see where he is as far as his knee,’’ Williams said.``He’s going to play with our young guys this summer, which is pretty good for us. We’ll find out more about Emeka this summer so we can get him back healthy again.’’
