Dwight Howard will play on Wednesday night while Cody Zeller has been ruled out with left knee soreness.
Howard missed a good chunk of the first half with an apparent back problem, and the team has since specified the diagnosis to a “right rhomboid spasm.” He was able to score 24 points, so it doesn’t look like a serious issue but it’s worth monitoring to see if he suffers any re-aggravations. Zeller has dealt with knee injuries already this season and there’s currently no timeframe for his return, though the team isn’t treating it as overly serious just yet. Frank Kaminsky will get extra time off the bench and the Hornets could opt to give Willy Hernangomez some minutes as well. He only played four last night despite both Zeller and Howard leaving the game, but fantasy owners can dream.
