The Charlotte Hornets (17-14) are in Florida taking on the Orlando Magic (15-18) tonight. The Hornets are playing some tumultuous basketball right now, with the team's inconsistent play leading to a record of 5-5 over their last 10 games. Many of those losses came against bad teams. Many of the wins came against good teams. The team hopes to right the ship tonight against the Magic, whom are without Evan Fournier.

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

What: Hornets vs Magic
When: Dec. 28, 2016 at 7 p.m.
Where: Amway Arena, Orlando, FL
TV: Fox Sports Southeast, NBA League Pass
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM

Only Marco Belinelli is out for the Hornets. This will be his second missed game due to an ankle injury. He's been a reliable scorer off of the bench all season, so they second unit will suffer a bit. Evan Fournier is out for the Magic.

Here are tonight's projected starters.

Hornets Position Magic
Kemba Walker PG D.J. Augustin
Nicolas Batum SG Jodie Meeks
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Aaron Gordon
Marvin Williams PF Serge Ibaka
