The Hornets take on the Bulls in Illinois tonight. Come chat with other Hornets fans about the game!

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

There are only three games left in the Charlotte Hornets' preseason. The team's had some time to experiment with new sets and lineups. It's around now that they should be looking to iron out the rotation and fine-tune their sets, and who better to do that against than the pastiche that is the Chicago Bulls.

Here's what you need to know about tonight's game:

What: Hornets at Bulls
When: Oct. 17, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
Where: United Center, Chicago, IL
TV: NBATV
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM

Projected Starters
Hornets Position Bulls
Kemba Walker PG Rajon Rondo
Nicolas Batum SG Dwyane Wade
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Jimmy Butler
Marvin Williams PF Taj Gibson
Roy Hibbert C Robin Lopez

The Bulls are very talented, but there are concerns the team lacks the stylistic chemistry needed to compete. With Rondo, Wade, and Butler all being incredibly high usage players, it's difficult to project how the Bulls' season will play out. It's likely Wade takes a step back and focusing on opportunistic scoring -- which will help -- but the recent acquisition of Michael Carter-Williams is puzzling, as he's relatively similar to Rondo and nearly as ball dominant.

For the Hornets, expect to see Cody Zeller take the floor tonight.
