Disclaimer: This GameThread was put together long before the trade deadline. Much of the info in this article could be inaccurate if the Charlotte Hornets and/or Detroit Pistons make a trade.

The Hornets (24-32) are up in Michigan taking on the Pistons (27-30) tonight just five hours after the NBA trade deadline. The Pistons sit in the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference, so a win tonight could help the Hornets regain some of the ground they've lost over the last couple of months.

By the way, check in on our Facebook page before the game for a live broadcast with Steve Forrest. He'll be recapping the trade deadline and previewing tonight's game. Ask him questions!

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

What: Hornets @ Pistons
When: Feb. 23, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
Where: Palace of Auburn Hills, Detroit, MI
TV: Fox Sports Southeast, NBA League Pass

Cody Zeller, Miles Plumlee, and Ramon Sessions are out for the Hornets tonight. For the Pistons, Beno Udrih and Aron Baynes are out.

Here are tonight's projected starters, assuming Rich Cho doesn't trade everyone:

Hornets Position Pistons
Kemba Walker PG Reggie Jackson

Frank Kaminsky C Andre Drummond
