The Pacers return to action at home on Friday night when they host the Charlotte Hornets.

Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Pacers and Hornets face off on Friday night in the second of three games between the teams this season. On Feb. 10, the Hornets out-everythinged the Pacers at the Fieldhouse, handing the Pacers a 117-95 loss -- certainly one of the worst L's of the season.


Charlotte has made a strong surge into playoff contention after a slow start to the season. While Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum have made the Hornets go, they are now getting some help from new faces with the addition of former Pike star Courtney Lee and Al Jefferson (old face, new role) pitching in off the bench while returning from injury. Former Indiana Mr. Basketball, Cody Zeller continues to start for Jefferson.


As for injuries, Rodney Stuckey's status changed to 'probable' earlier in the day so he should be good for at least a few minutes. C.J. Miles is out with a lingering calf strain.
