After missing last night’s game in Atlanta, Devonte’ Graham is a go against his former team, the Charlotte Hornets.

Brandon Ingram, as expected, will miss his eighth consecutive game due to right hamstring soreness.

With Graham back, Willie Green will start Graham, CJ McCollum, Herb Jones, Jaxson Hayes and Jonas Valanciunas, pushing Naji Marshall back to the bench.

Hornets head coach James Borrego will counter with LaMelo Ball, Terry Rozier, Miles Bridges, PJ Washington and Mason Plumlee.

The Pelicans are 5.5-point underdogs before tip-off. Can they overcome the odds to finish the road trip a perfect 3-0? For more on tonight’s matchup, please give our preview a read.
