Charlotte Hornets center Frank Kaminsky will miss Saturday’s game at Denver after he sprained his left shoulder Thursday against the Phoenix Suns.

Kaminsky suffered an AC joint sprain with 7 minutes, 38 seconds remaining in the Hornets’ 120-103 defeat against the Suns on Sunday. He will be re-evaluated when the team returns to Charlotte after the Denver game.

Kaminsky has been a bright spot during a tough stretch for the Hornets. He’s scored 20-plus points in each of the past 10 games that he has started in place of Cody Zeller. He has averaged 14.9 points and 6.4 rebounds as a starter. Since Feb. 1, he’s averaged 17.9 points, third highest among second-year players in the NBA.
