The Hornets will be down two starters tonight

Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller join Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on the inactive list.

According to Rick Bonnell, both Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller will sit out tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets.

As Bonnell notes, the Charlotte Hornets are already without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, who suffered a strained knee in Friday night’s win over the Wizards. He was originally listed as probable for tonight’s game, but was downgraded to doubtful earlier today.

No word yet on who will start in their absences. If I had to guess, Jeremy Lamb will probably be elevated back into the starting lineup. Frank Kaminsky has probably earned the starting center spot, but I wouldn’t be surprised if James Borrego decides to keep him with the second unit so they have some added scoring punch.
