Despite a pair of questionable tags, Kemba Walker (head contusion) and Dwight Howard (dislocated finger) will warm up ahead of Saturday’s game with the intent to play.
If Howard were to sit it’d mean more production for Frank Kaminsky and Johnny O’Bryant, while Walker’s absence would let Michael Carter-Williams run the show. The replacements are tough to use tonight since there won’t be word about anyone’s status until shortly before tip off. The reeling Hornets might be wise to give their two stars an extended break with Christmas coming up, but we’ll see if they get out there tonight.
