CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Charlotte forward Eduardo Najera didn't suffer any brain trauma after taking an inadvertent elbow to the head from Milwaukee's John Brockman during Friday night's 95-90 loss.

Najera had a CT scan at a hospital that showed Najera suffered a fractured frontal bone. He accompanied his teammates on a flight back to Charlotte on Saturday morning after leaving the hospital, according to team spokesman B.J. Evans.

Brockman visited Najera at the hospital. After the game, Bobcats coach Paul Silas called the injury "bad, real bad."

Najera is not expected to play when the Bobcats host the Atlanta Hawks on Saturday night.
