The Hornets have lost four straight games and play the streaking Hawks tonight, who've won three of their last four but lost seven of their last 10. Chat with other Hornets fans about the game in the comments below.

The Charlotte Hornets (14-13) are up in Georgia taking on the Atlanta Hawks (13-13) tonight. Kemba Walker is back with the team and is expected to start, and the Hornets have sorely needed him. They're in the middle of a four-game losing streak and are drifting ever closer to .500. Not great for a team that was on pace for its best season ever, by far, earlier this year.

Thankfully, the Hawks have their own problems. They've lost seven of their last 10, though they've won three of their last four.

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

What: Hornets at Hawks
When: Dec. 17, 2016 at 7:30 p.m.
Where: Philips Arena, Atlanta, GA
TV: Fox Sports Southeast, NBA League Pass
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM

Sounds like Kemba's back with the Hornets. Jeremy Lamb (ribs), however, is questionable for tonight. As far as I know, everyone else is healthy and good to go. Tiago Splitter (calf) and Malcolm Delaney (ankle) are out for the Hawks.

Here are tonight's projected starters.

Hornets Position Hawks
Kemba Walker PG Dennis Schroder
Nicolas Batum SG Tim Hardaway Jr.
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Thabo Sefolosha
Marvin Williams PF Paul Millsap
Cody Zeller C Dwight Howard
