According to Rick Bonnell, both Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller will sit out tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets.
As if @hornets weren’t challenged enough tonight in Houston: No Zeller (knee soreness), no Williams (illness) and MKG doubtful (knee strain).— Rick Bonnell (@rick_bonnell) March 11, 2019
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.
