Jeremy Lin and Mo Williams figure to get minutes tonight

The Charlotte Hornets didn't need any more bad news today regarding injuries, but they got it anyway. With the streaking Cleveland Cavaliers coming to town they will be without the services of Kemba Walker. Walker has been playing at a near-All Star level all season, and helps an offense-starved team function. The Hornets are also without Al Jefferson and Nic Batum. Cody Zeller has been injured.

With Walker out, Jeremy Lin is likely to start at point guard, and reserve guard Brian Roberts will see more time as well. Troy Daniels will play at the two some, and he can shoot from the outside. The Hornets will be low on healthy bodies though, and tonight figures to be challenging for them.

The Cavs have been largely healthy for awhile, but it seems as though Matthew Dellavedova has been dealing with a hamstring issue for awhile and will take the night off. He hopes to play Friday
