Rozier sprained his right ankle at the end of the first half and missed the rest of the game. That gave Ball the second-half start, something many Hornets fans have been demanding for weeks. Rozier laid on the court for some time at the end of the half before being walking off the court with assistance from teammate Miles Bridges. The Hornets declared him out for the rest of the game, but there’s no indication how long he might be out. Rozier has been a starter all season and is the Hornets’ second-leading scorer at 18.9 points per game.
