Charlotte Bobcats small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist could miss tonight’s home game against the Milwaukee Bucks after being diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in his right foot.

Bobcats coach Steve Clifford told the Observer at morning shootaround that Kidd-Gilchrist was “highly questionable” to play tonight.

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the mid-foot that can be very painful.

The obvious alternative at small forward is Jeff Taylor. Other possibilities are Gerald Henderson and Anthony Tolliver.
