CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats could be without reserve forward Dominic McGuire for up to six weeks because of a stress fracture in his left shin.

McGuire first experienced pain following a scrimmage early in training camp. He appeared in three exhibition games and averaged 1.3 points before an MRI revealed the extent of the injury.

The Bobcats announced McGuire's status Saturday night after their preseason game against the Detroit Pistons.

They signed McGuire to a one-year, $900,000 free-agent deal in July after he played with Washington last season.

McGuire joins guard Shaun Livingston, center Kwame Brown and forward Eduardo Najera in being sidelined with injuries for Charlotte in the preseason.
