CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Charlotte Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson is expected to undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left hip.

Team spokesman B.J. Evans said Tuesday the injury was discovered by a specialist in Colorado who was examining Henderson’s left knee. Henderson was plagued by knee pain for much of last season.

The recovery time following surgery wasn’t immediately known.

The 12th pick in the 2009 draft out of Duke, Henderson struggled for playing time under former coach Larry Brown. But Henderson was put in the rotation when Paul Silas replaced Brown in December and made a starter after Gerald Wallace was traded to Portland in February.

Henderson scored in double figures in 22 of the final 28 games, including a 32-point outing against Orlando.
