Landry was averaging 11.5 points and 4.4 rebounds per game for the Hornets, splitting time at the power forward position with Jason Smith. He injured the MCL during last night's loss to the Detroit Pistons.

In related news, the AP reports that Lance Thomas will sign a 10-day contract with the Hornets on Monday.
