Tyrus Thomas — who has given the Bobcats some pretty mediocre minutes off the bench so far this young season — is now out for two months due to a calf injury, reports Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer.

Charlotte Bobcats power forward Tyrus Thomas is expected to miss two months after a magnetic resonance imaging revealed a tear of the plantaris muscle in his left leg….

The injury does not require surgery, but has a relatively long recovery period.

If you have Hakim Warrick on your fantasy team… well, if you do you’re doing fantasy all wrong. But Warrick — who recently came to the Bobcats from New Orleans in a trade that sent Matt Carroll back — will get a much bigger role off the bench now. Warrick had five points and four boards in his Bobcats debut against Memphis over the weekend.

Thomas remains one of the NBA’s bigger wastes of potential. If you want to know what I mean, understand that losing the former No. 4 overall pick for two months really isn’t going to hurt the lowly Bobcats much.

    With the lowest IQ in the history of the NBA, this isnt really a surprise. I doubt if Thomas could even spell NBA.

    The ‘Cats are actually playing better this year – they might match their 2011-2012 win total by month-end.

    It’s just a flesh wound! Tyrus will resume his routine of getting overpaid whilst contributing nothing. I’m getting excited about our Bobcats; Kemba seems to be making a huge leap, MKG is non-stop hustle, and the coach has them playing mediocre (big improvement) defense. Best of all, they are actually fun to watch.
