Hornets host another team missing its stars when Lakers visit

Field Level Media

The Charlotte Hornets have experienced the pluses and minuses of facing undermanned teams.

They probably learned a lesson while playing their past two opponents, who had severe roster limitations because of injuries. That will be the case once again when the Los Angeles Lakers visit for Tuesday night's game in Charlotte, N.C.

The Hornets won Friday night at the Milwaukee Bucks, who were without Giannis Antetokounmpo, and then they returned home and lost Sunday to the Atlanta Hawks, who were minus Trae Young.

Now, for the third straight matchup, Charlotte will not have to face a couple of NBA stars.
