CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) _ The Charlotte Hornets waived Tim James and placed three others, including newly acquired forward George Lynch, on the injured list Monday.
Lynch, traded to Charlotte last week in the deal that sent Derrick Coleman to Philadelphia, will have surgery Tuesday on his left foot. He was injured in May and has yet to fully heal. The Hornets expect him to be out 2-3 months.
Also placed on the injured list were Jerome Moiso, another forward sent over in the Philadelphia trade, with tendinitis in his left knee, and first-round draft pick Kirk Haston, who has back spasms.
