Hornets vs. Bulls GameThread

Come chat as the Hornets take on the Bulls at home!

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Hornets take on the Chicago Bulls at home tonight. It is the third of four straight home games for the Hornets, and they will hope to avoid losing to Chicago (who enters with the league's worst record) for the second straight game.

But doing so will be tough. The Hornets lost both Cody Zeller and Frank Kaminsky to injuries on Wednesday, leaving them short-handed. Still, they should win, but I feel like I've said that a lot this season.

The game is on Fox Sports Southeast and NBA League Pass. Here are the projected starters:

Hornets Position Bulls
Kemba Walker PG Kris Dunn
Nicolas Batum SG Justin Holiday
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Denzel Valentine
Marvin Williams PF Lauri Markkanen
Dwight Howard C Robin Lopez

Aside from Zeller and Kaminsky the Hornets are healthy. Point guard Julyan Stone won't be with the team having been sent down to the Greensboro Swarm. However, two-way player Mangok Mathiang was called up, and is available if needed. Tip off is just after 7:00 p.m.
