Via Twitter, Rick Bonnell reports that Cody Zeller (Sternum contusion) is questionable to play tonight versus the Magic while Nicolas Batum (ankle) has been ruled out. With the playoffs starting soon, there's no reason for Charlotte to push any of its banged-up players, especially when the Hornets can't improve their playoff standing.

The Magic are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games in Charlotte while the road team is an impressive 23-8 against the number in the last 31 meetings between these two teams. The underdog has also cashed in six of the last seven meetings as well.
