Updated: December 21, 2013

Charlotte, NC ( – Charlotte Bobcats forward Jeff Taylor
will miss the remainder of the season with a ruptured Achilles in his right
leg, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Taylor suffered the injury just 30 seconds into Friday’s 116-106 win over
Detroit after attempting to drive past Josh Smith.

The second-year pro out of Vanderbilt fell to the floor grasping his leg in
pain and was immediately helped into the locker room.

Taylor is averaging 8.0 points and 2.3 rebounds in 26 games this season and
has started the last eight contests in place of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who is
out with a broken hand.
