CHARLOTTE, N.C. The Charlotte Bobcats waived center Jameel Watkins and guard C.J. Watson, reducing their roster to the regular-season limit of 15 on Wednesday.
Both players signed as free agents before training camp.
The Bobcats will enter the regular season with only 13 healthy players. Forward Sean May and swingman Adam Morrison are out for the season with knee injuries.
May had microfracture surgery on his right knee earlier this month, and Morrison tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee Saturday in an exhibition game. He's scheduled to have surgery within the month.
May and Morrison will still count on the 15-player roster throughout the season unless the Bobcats get a special exemption to sign another player.
