The Charlotte Losers (24-31) are up in Canada taking on the Toronto Losers (32-24) tonight. Sorry, the Charlotte Hornets are taking on the Toronto Raptors. Freudian slip.

The Hornets are 5-17 since Dec. 31 and the Raptors are 8-14 since that same day. Both are sliding down the Eastern Conference standings and clawing to hold on. The Raptors traded for Serge Ibaka yesterday in an attempt to solidify their roster. We'll see if it works out.

By the way, check in on our Facebook page after the game for a live broadcast with Steve Forrest. He'll be recapping the game over there and taking your questions.

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

What: Hornets @ Raptors
When: Feb. 15, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Where: Air Canada Centre, Toronto, ON
TV: Fox Sports Southeast, NBA League Pass
Radio: WFNZ 610 AM, WFNZ 102.5 FM

So, some bad news. Cody Zeller, Miles Plumlee, and Ramon Sessions are all out tonight. Hornets head coach Steve Clifford might actually have to play Christian Wood, Mike Tobey, and Ray McCallum out of necessity. But rumors are floating around that he might just play Marvin and maybe even MKG at center instead. Yeesh.

For the Raptors, only Patrick Patterson is out. Ibaka will not suit up for the Raptors tonight.

Here are tonight's projected starters:

Hornets Position Raptors
Kemba Walker PG Kyle Lowry
Nicolas Batum SG DeMar DeRozan
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF DeMarre Carroll
Marvin Williams PF Jared Sullinger
Frank Kaminsky C Jonas Valanciunas
