DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - The assault and battery case involving Charlotte Hornets rookie guard P.J. Hairston has been rescheduled for Nov. 14.

Hairston was originally due to appear in Durham County court Friday on a misdemeanor charge of assault and battery following an altercation with a high school basketball player during a pickup basketball game in July. Police had issued a summons for Hairston but did not arrest him.

Kentrell Barkley, a senior at Northern Durham High School, said in court documents Hairston “punched him twice in the head” during a heated basketball game at the Durham YMCA.

The case was first scheduled for court Aug. 8 before pushed back to Friday and now to November.
