Happy Peyton Manning is a Bronco day! Here's some Hornets links after the jump, two days before the homecoming of one Christopher Paul.

- The Hornets have claimed former LSU forward Chris Johnson off waivers. Will wrote on Twitter that Johnson's the skinniest player he's ever seen, something Google Images backs up.

- Xavier Henry is also back with the team after spending a single game with the D-League's Iowa Energy.

- Eric Gordon will resume practicing with the team next week.

- Couple interesting developments for tomorrow's game against Golden State - Samuel L. Jackson will announce the starting lineups, and Carl Landry, after a long injury layoff, may be in line to make an appearance.

- Finally, here's my piece for Hoopspeak today on why Chris Paul's future with the Clippers may be shorter lived than many anticipated.
