Charlotte Hornets Rumors
The Charlotte Hornets will be without starting center P.J. Washington and could also be without leading scorer Terry Rozier for Tuesday’s home game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Washington was downgraded from probable to out with a sprained ankle. Rozier is doubtful with left knee tendinitis.
Sarah K. Spencer: Hawks were down 10 with 7:16 left in the fourth but come back to beat the Hornets, 105-101. They move to 29-25. Huge performances by Goodwin (17 pts, 8 ast), Bogdanovic (career-high 8 3’s, 32 pts) and Capela (20 pts, 15 reb). Clutch final minutes from Lou Williams.
Rod Boone: James Borrego said he estimates #Hornets have lost about 50 percent of their scoring and about 70 percent of their playmaking with injuries to LaMelo, Gordon Hayward and Malik Monk. Still, no excuses. “We’ll move forward and find ways to improve over the next couple of games.”
