We've got good news.

MKG is back! He's on a minutes restriction, but he will be starting for the Charlotte Hornets against the Denver Nuggets tonight. This'll be a good one, I promise.

As usual, you can watch tonight's game live on Fox Sports Southeast or League Pass and listen live with WFNZ 610 AM or WFNZ 102.5 FM. You can read Hunter Kuffel's preview of tonight's game here.

Here are tonight's projected starters.

Hornets Position Nuggets
Kemba Walker PG Jamal Murray
Jeremy Lamb SG Gary Harris
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Wilson Chandler
Marvin Williams PF Paul Millsap
Dwight Howard C Nikola Jokic

As previously mentioned, MKG's back for the Hornets. Head coach Steve Clifford is also moving Jeremy Lamb into the starting lineup, sending rookie Malik Monk back to the bench. I presume he'll be primarily backing up Kemba tonight, but we'll see how Cliff uses him. Nicolas Batum, Cody Zeller, Michael Carter-Williams, and Julyan Stone are still out, however. For the Nuggets, Juan Hernangomez is out with mono for the next month or so.

Tip-off's at 7 p.m. and you can chat with other fans in the comments below!
