Charlotte rookie May sits out with sore knee
May has soreness in his right knee and is day to day.
May, the 13th overall pick in the June draft, had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Sept. 13 and missed a portion of the preseason, playing in just one exhibition game.
But May had played in all 13 games in the regular season, including 15 minutes on Friday night in a 90-89 loss at Boston. He had four points and two rebounds.
May is averaging 9.2 points and 5.3 rebounds and is Charlotte's leading scorer off the bench.
He helped lead North Carolina to the national championship last spring.
