The Hornets could be without some key pieces tonight, especially Zeller in the paint. He would be a good presence to have on defense against Westbrook, who attacks and attacks and attacks. Westbrook should be able to get the looks he wants now. If Belinelli is out, that is just one less scoring option for the Hornets to combat against Westbrook and the Thunder.
