Injury Report: Wizards forward Markieff Morris has a sprained ankle and is questionable for tonight's game. Sheldon Mac is out for the season with a torn Achilles. For the Hornets, Frank Kaminsky is questionable after leaving the last game with a sprained ankle. Cody Zeller is targeting a late January return as he recovers from a torn meniscus.

Who the Trends Like: Washington is 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings. The under is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Charlotte and 6-2 in the last eight meetings overall.

Who We Like: The last meeting between these two squads saw the Hornets eke out a 129-124 overtime victory on Nov. 22, a game that was also in Charlotte. Look for the Wizards to get their revenge here. While the Hornets are a much better home team, they still come in at 11-12 when playing in their own arena. Meanwhile, the Wizards are 10-10 in road games. After a five-game homestand, expect John Wall and Washington to get a victory here on the road.
