• Hornets’ coach Steve Clifford said that Kemba Walker, Jeremy Lamb, Marvin Williams and Dwight Howard will start against the Pistons tonight, per Rick Bonnell.

    Clifford refused to name the remaining fifth starter claiming that “NBA players can’t perform best until they know when and how much they will play.” Nicolas Batum (shoulder) is out for at least the next month and a half, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (personal) is still not with the team and Michael Carter-Williams (knee) is not ready for game action yet. The Hornets’ head coach knows that he will have to count on rookies Dwayne Bacon and Malik Monk for major rotation minutes and he is probably trying to keep them ready and motivated. Jeremy Lamb is expected to have his role expanded and should be in all lineups tonight.
