Want to watch LaMelo Ball and the Hornets this season? Most cord-cutters are out of luck

The Charlotte debuts of first-round draft pick LaMelo Ball and free-agent signing Gordon Hayward Preseason are set for Dec. 12 when the Hornets host the Raptors, and if you’re excited to watch, you may have a hard time doing so.

The Hornets are unable to host fans at Spectrum Center to start the NBA season (and preseason) due to state restrictions to help curb the spread of COVID-19, and for most cord-cutters, that means not being able to watch the Hornets, period.

The Fox Regional Sports Networks that broadcast games for the Hornets and the NHL’s Carolina Hurricanes are no longer available on popular streaming services FuboTV, Hulu, SlingTV or YouTube TV.
