Charlotte Hornets vs Miami Heat GameThread

The Hornets are back at it tonight against the Heat. Everyone but Jefferson is healthy! Chat with us about the game in the comments.

The Charlotte Hornets are back at home taking on the Miami Heat tonight, and for the first time in what feels like forever, every Hornet but Al Jefferson is available.

That's great news for a team that's played most games without a starter or two and a decimated bench. When mostly healthy early in the season, the Hornets looked very, very good — and that was without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Now that Kidd-Gilchrist is part of the equation, we can finally get a look at what this team's all about. Convenient timing with the trade deadline just weeks away.

The Heat are mostly healthy too, with only Chris Andersen and Tyler Johnson out tonight.

The Hornets got a great win against the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday. Let's hope they can start their home stand with a 2-0 record. It won't get any easier. They play the Washington Wizards tomorrow before taking on the Chicago Bulls on Monday.

Grab your snacks and get to a TV. It's time for Hornets basketball!
