Nikola Vucevic vs. Al Jefferson: Jefferson is coming off a double-double against the Boston Celtics in his first start since November. Vucevic has the size and bulk to hinder Jefferson getting to his preferred spots in the low post.
▪ This is the regular-season finale before the Hornets start playoffs over the weekend. Hornets coach Steve Clifford said Monday he doesn’t intend to sit any players who aren’t injured. But the starters will likely play reduced minutes.
▪ The Hornets played the Celtics without center Cody Zeller (bruised sternum) and lost small forward Nic Batum to an ankle sprain. It’s unclear whether either of those players will be available Wednesday.
▪ This game will be televised on Fox Sports Southeast after ESPN dropped the game to televise Miami Heat-Celtics instead.
▪ The Magic closed out its home schedule Monday with a victory over the Milwaukee Bucks.
