Charlotte Hornets at Memphis Grizzlies gamethread

New, comments

It's the second and final game of the season for these two. Charlotte will be hoping this one goes a little bit more in their favor.

The Charlotte Hornets take on the Memphis Grizzlies tonight in a game they're hoping will go much better than their last matchup did. The first time these two teams took each other on the Hornets didn't fare well being soundly defeated in a game that was never all that close. With tonight's contest on the road and Charlotte suffering from a handful of injuries it's possible this one won't go that much better.

Here's what you need to know to tune in:

What: Hornets at Grizzlies
When: Nov. 28, 2016 at 8:00 p.m.
Where: FedEx Fourm
TV: Fox Sports Southeast
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM

Marvin Williams will likely miss tonight's contest as he's still recovering from a hyper extended knee injury. Marco Bellinelli is also questionable for tonight with tigthness in his right hamstring. On the positive side, Nicolas Batum will be back in the starting lineup after missing one game.

Here are tonight's projected starting lineups:

Hornets Position Grizzlies
Kemba Walker PG Mike Conley
Nicolas Batum SG Tony Allen
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Troy Williams
Frank Kaminsky PF JaMychal Green
Cody Zeller C Marc Gasol

The Hornets just can't seem to outrun the injury bug. Everytime they get away the bug crashes through a brick wall and bites yet another Hornets player this time potentially claiming Marco Bellinelli. Lucky for Charlotte, the Grizzlies are also not fully healthy themselves so this one may come down just to who isn't dead at the finish line.
