Brendan Haywood has stress reaction
The 7-foot Haywood missed three of the team's past four games because of left ankle soreness.
He had an MRI on Wednesday, and a CT scan ordered by foot specialist Dr. Bob Anderson confirmed the stress reaction.
Haywood will be in a walking boot for the next four weeks.
He has appeared in 61 games for the Bobcats this season and has averaged 3.5 points and 4.8 rebounds in 19 minutes per game.
