CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Bobcats small forward Jeffery Taylor is hoping a spot in the starting lineup will help shake his recent shooting slump.

Taylor takes over Friday night against the Philadelphia 76ers after the team's regular starter Michael Kidd-Gilchrist broke his left hand in Tuesday night's loss to the Dallas Mavericks.

Taylor, the team's second-round draft pick in 2012, has scored just 15 points in his last four games on 7 of 21 shooting. He averaged 10 points per game in his first 15 games this season.

Taylor played a season-low three minutes in Charlotte's loss to the Mavericks.

Taylor says, "I've struggled a little bit. I had a stretch where I was playing well and now I haven't played so well. I just need to stay at it."
