Charlotte Hornets PR: INJURY UPDATE: @Charlotte Hornets vs IND 10/20 Miles Bridges (R Knee Discomfort) probable Terry Rozier (L Ankle Sprain) probable #AllFly
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.

There is also rising buzz in coaching circles about the pressure mounting on Frank Vogel given the Lakers’ worrisome 10-10 start … given L.A.’s lack of flexibility to make roster changes.
Iman Shumpert might’ve been focusing on mirror balls more than basketballs recently, but the NBA champ says he’s NOT done hooping … telling TMZ Sports he’s got a lot left in his tank. We caught up with the 31-year-old fresh off winning the 30th season of “Dancing With the Stars” this week … and we asked with all the moves he displayed on the dancefloor, is he going to take his talents back to the basketball court?? “Tryna see what we can get done,” Shumpert said, “I love basketball. I never stopped playing.”
Haralabos Voulgaris: I tried to get (Alex Caruso) the year he was a free agent three years ago. Could not convince people that he was even an NBA basketball player and one of our guys in our front office is like, ‘I think if he didn’t look like the like Jim Carrey from the Cable Guy when when he plays a pickup basketball game, I think he would be taken a lot more seriously.’
Harrison Faigen: LeBron, on if the team is really patient, or if they’re just putting on a brave face when they preach patience: “We’re all disgusted at our losses. But at the same time, you’ve got to stay even-keeled throughout the process… I feel like I played a horrible game individually.”
Harrison Faigen: LeBron James says he saw Isaiah Stewart’s comments today saying he doesn’t think LeBron hit him on accident. LeBron maintains that the hit to his face was accidental, he was just trying to push Stewart off of him.
