I say this before every game, but the Charlotte Hornets need a win tonight, y'all. They're only four games out of the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference and were they to start winning just a bit more they'd be able to aim even higher.

That means taking care of the Indiana Pacers tonight, at home no less.

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.

Here are this evening's projected starters:

Hornets Position Pacers
Kemba Walker PG Darren Collison
Nicolas Batum SG Victor Oladipo
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Bojan Bogdanovic
Frank Kaminsky PF Thaddeus Young
Dwight Howard C Myles Turner

So we've got some good news and some bad news. The bad news is that Marvin Williams is out once again, leaving Frank Kaminsky as his replacement in the starting lineup. The good news is that Cody Zeller is expected to play tonight! Dude's been gone for what feels like forever. For the Pacers, Glenn Robinson III is out.

Tip-off's at 7 p.m. EST.
