It might be Super Bowl Sunday but there's still basketball to be watched.

The Charlotte Hornets begin a four-game road trip against the Phoenix Suns in Arizona this afternoon before heading to Colorado tonight for a game against the Denver Nuggets tomorrow. The Suns aren't particularly good--especially with all of the injuries holding them back right now--but they're a wiley team and one the Hornets should respect lest they waltz into a loss this afternoon.

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 today's projected starters:

Hornets Position Suns
Kemba Walker PG Tyler Ullis
Nicolas Batum SG Devin Booker
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF T.J. Warren
Frank Kaminsky PF Dragan Bender
Dwight Howard C Tyson Chandler

No Marvin Williams against the Suns this afternoon. He doesn't have a return date in mind, but his ankle injury doesn't sound especially serious so I'd expect him back sooner than later. The Suns, on the other hand, are missing a plethora of players: Isaiah Canaan, Brandon Knight, Marquese Chriss, Alex Len, and Alan Williams are all out. Yikes.

Tip-off's at 3 p.m. EST.
