Yet another Charlotte Hornets injury, and this one is a starter: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Long view of the last man on the #Hornets practice court: Noah Vonleh. http://t.co/rU1tPDXS9i

Mark Deeks

From Sunday, @MatthewHochberg looks at how Lance Stephenson betters the Hornets guards...if they can fit them all in. bit.ly/1t5x6hi

Rick Bonnell

Reading through old Hornets stories for @theobserver special section. That Tim Kempton once fit a Whopper in his mouth still makes me laugh.

Rick Bonnell

If you're a @SiriusXMNBA subscriber, Malik Rose and @Frank Isola taped a Hornets preview show that runs 7-10 a.m. tomorrow.

Rick Bonnell

Researching a story for special section on what made original Hornets charming. Been a while since I pulled this out. http://t.co/12OPaYWdv0

Rick Bonnell

Your PM Hornets report: Injuries still piling up a week out from regular-season opener. charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/22/525…

Sean Deveney

In 13-14, @Portland Trail Blazers @Phoenix Suns @Charlotte Hornets made 20-W leaps. Over 20 years, only 6 of 18 teams got better after 20-W jump sportingnews.com/nba/story/2014…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets injury-ridden. Stephenson (groin) not at practice. Zeller (hand) and Vonleh (ankle) both sat out contact drills.

Rick Bonnell

Per @Adrian Wojnarowski the Hornets voted against changing lottery system. Looks like mostly small-market teams nixed the idea.

Barry Jackson

In NBA.com's annual poll of all NBA GMs, 59.3% said Wizards will win Southeast Division.29.6% said Heat;7.4 Hawks;3.7 Bobcats

Rick Bonnell

Um, yeah. Yet the single biggest push-back I heard about my pre-camp predictions was the Heat still finishing ahead of the Hornets.

Rick Bonnell

Frankly, first thing Hornets should do in that regard is put Bobby Phills' jersey in the rafters, simply as a nod to Pelicans' accommodation

Rick Bonnell

If you want to chat Hornets, I'll be at the Observer booth at Buzzfest Friday at 7 p.m.. and Saturday at 3 p.m. Unless, you know, Powerball.

Rick Bonnell

This is no big surprise, but Hornets intend to wear their alternative teal uniforms opening night.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets' Steve Clifford on Cody Zeller's fouls, wing rotation, if Noah Vonleh should play in D-League and much more: charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/21/525…

Optimum link to download @theobserver Hornets app (if you have trouble, I'm a techie klutz so I'd be of no help). charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/21/525…

Rick Bonnell

At least two wing players will sit for the Hornets because, as Clifford put it, "intramural substitutions" don't work in the NBA.

Tim Bontemps

From yesterday, the consequences of Lance Stephenson's move to Charlotte for him, the Pacers and Hornets: nypost.com/2014/10/20/lan…

Rick Bonnell

Hornets injuries gave Cody Zeller and rookies P.J. Hairston and Noah Vonleh some extra run last night. charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/20/525…

Rick Bonnell

Gary Neal has clearly been Hornets' best player this preseason. ICYMI, you could see the signs at training camp: charlotteobserver.com/2014/10/02/521…

Dennis Scott

More work! Preview shows Bobcats oops Hornets and Magic..#Nbatv Smitty and Jared! instagram.com/p/uatQyHABp0/

Five observations from Hawks' 117-114 overtime win over Hornets. atlantahawks.blog.ajc.com/2014/10/20/fiv… #ATLHawks

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Henderson (hamstring) tells me he did some running and shooting today. He hopes to play in Hornets' final exhibition.

Rick Bonnell

P.J. Hairston missed a 3 at the buzzer. Hornets lose 117-114 in OT.

Chris Vivlamore

Final: Hawks 117, Hornets 114 OT. #ATLHawks

Jaryd Wilson

Game 1 with Charlotte last year: OT win (Pero's one-legged three) Game 2 with Charlotte last year: Bobcats win at buzzer. #AlwaysDrama

Rick Bonnell

Hornets hit the shot-clock hat trick.

Rick Bonnell

Gary Neal has obviously had the Hornets' best preseason. Second is MKG. Cody Zeller has been up-and-down but showing progress.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks 82, Hornets 77 at end of third quarter. #ATLHawks

Jaryd Wilson

The Hornets have erased a 17 point third quarter deficit on the strength of their defense. New game at 77-77.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets delay-of-game warning.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Hawks 58, Hornets 43

Chris Vivlamore

At the half, Hawks 58, Hornets 43. #ATLHawks

Sean Highkin

One could even say he's having a "Kirk Hinrich against the Hornets" type game.

Rick Bonnell

Hornets second unit right now can be described as the very young meets the very old.

Chris Vivlamore

Hawks-Hornets tied at 24 after one quarter. #ATLHawks

Rick Bonnell

Hairston 3-pointer gives the Hornets a 19-17 lead with 3:28 left in first quarter.
