Byron Mullens expected to return tonight against Miami

After more than a month-long absence following an ankle injury, the Bobcats 7-footer could be ready to make his highly-anticipated return to the court.

Byron Mullens is likely to make his 2013 debut tonight against the Miami Heat, he said via his Twitter account.

I wouldn't expect too much of him tonight in his return from a serious ankle sprain he suffered in December. Maybe 10-15 minutes coming off the bench, I'd wager. So don't expect him to supplant Jeff Adrien in the starting lineup just yet.

For more on the impact of his return, I'll direct you to our piece from a few days ago on the impact his return could have on lineups and how the team plays.
