Matchup to Watch
Cody Zeller vs. Nikola Jokic: The Hornets’ depth at center is thin with Frank Kaminsky and Miles Plumlee injured; Jokick leads the Nuggets in rebounding and blocks.
▪ Kaminsky (shoulder), center Miles Plumlee (calf) and guard Ramon Sessions (knee) are out for the Hornets. Nuggets forward Kenneth Faried (back) also won’t play.
▪ Kaminsky’s sprained left shoulder will be evaluated when the Hornets return to Charlotte from this seven-game road trip that spanned the All-Star break.
▪ Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had a career-high six steals against the Suns.
▪ Center Roy Hibbert, traded from the Hornets to Milwaukee earlier this season, is now with the Nuggets.
