About to tip off in Charlotte tonight. Hornets vs. Rockets.
Nelly has owned a small percentage of the Hornets for several years and occasionally attends games at Time Warner Cable Arena.
NBA spokesman: League aware Hornets minority owner Nelly was arrested over the weekend. NBA monitoring the situation.
After playing 28 minutes tonight, Dwight Howard will not play tomorrow night against the Hornets, staying consistent w his usage plan.
I'm told it's it's highly unlikely P.J Hairston or Lance Stephenson will play in either of the Hornets' remaining games.
Hornets finish with Rockets and Raptors, so likelihood of them winning out is minimal.
Only way Heat could get lottery seed better than No. 10 would be lose twice and Hornets win twice to force random draw for Nos. 9-10 seeds.
