The Hornets play their third-to-last game of the season tonight against the Orlando Magic. Both teams enter with banged up rosters and not much to play for. Chat with other Hornets fans in the comments below!

There are only three games left in the regular season and one of them is tonight. Man, time flies.

Yep, the Charlotte Hornets play the Orlando Magic tonight down in Florida before finishing the year with a home-and-home against the Indiana Pacers. Much like the Hornets' last game against the Chicago Bulls, neither team is all that interested in winning tonight and instead will probably use these last few games to evaluate their own respective talent.

So if you liked Malik Monk dropping 21 on the Bulls, this is probably a game for you.

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 Magic
Kemba Walker PG D.J. Augustin
Nicolas Batum SG Wesley Uwundu
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist SF Jamel Artis
Marvin Williams PF Mario Hezonja
Dwight Howard C Bismack Biyombo

Treveon Graham and Dwayne Bacon will join Cody Zeller and Michael Carter-Williams on the bench once again. For the Magic, a plethora of players are out: Jonathan Simmons, Nikola Vucevic, Evan Fournier, Aaron Gordon, Jonathan Isaac, and Terrence Ross. On the bright side, we get to see what former Hornets D.J. Augustin and Biz are up to.

Tip-off's at 7:00 p.m. EST.
