The Bobcats notebook …

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte Bobcats guards Adam Morrison and Raymond Felton were selected Wednesday to play in the rookie-sophomore game during the league’s All-Star weekend.

Morrison, the NBA’s second-leading rookie scorer at 13.4 points per game, will play against Felton, a second-year player who is averaging 14.1 points and 7.5 assists, on Feb. 16 in Las Vegas.

The teams, which include nine players each, were selected by NBA assistant coaches.

Morrison will be joined on the rookie team by Toronto’s Andrea Bargnani and Portland’s Brandon Roy.

Felton’s teammates include Utah’s Andrew Bogut and Chris Paul of New Orleans.

MAY SHUT DOWN

The Bobcats plan to shut down forward Sean May for about a week after he initially tried to play through a bone bruise in his surgically repaired right knee.

The former University of North Carolina star and 2005 first-round pick is averaging 11.5 points and 6.5 rebounds.

HARRINGTON OUT

CHARLOTTE — Charlotte Bobcats reserve center Othella Harrington will undergo surgery Thursday to repair torn cartilage in his left knee and will miss 3-6 weeks.
