KEY INJURY TO WATCH

Joel Embiid (knee) is probable to play for the 76ers but Markelle Fultz remains out with a shoulder injury that he suffered all the way back in October.

BETTING STRATEGY

The 76ers have struggled to cover on the road of late, going just 1-7-1 at the betting window in their last nine games away from their home court. Meanwhile, the Hornets have covered the spread in five of their last six home games, are 5-2 against the number in their last seven games overall, and are a perfect 5-0 against the spread in their last five home games when facing a team that owns a losing road record.
