OAKLAND, Calif. -- Charlotte Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker is back in the starting lineup against the Golden State Warriors after missing the last seven games with a sprained left ankle.

Walker's return Tuesday night pushed Ramon Sessions back into a reserve role. Walker hadn't played since he was injured in a loss to Miami on Jan. 18 when he stepped on Chris Bosh's foot on a fast-break layup.

The injury ended Walker's streak of 190 straight games played, the second longest in team history. Walker entered the game against the Warriors averaging team highs of 18.7 points, five assists and 1.4 steals this season.
