quote: The Hornets (3-6) are hoping for a turnaround when they face the Indiana Pacers (5-7) Wednesday night at Banker’s Life Fieldhouse. After the Pacers, the Hornets play the Phoenix Suns on Friday before facing Denver Nuggets on Sunday and Los Angeles Clippers this upcoming Monday.
The Hornets will likely have to play without having rookie forward Anthony Davis for the second consecutive game Wednesday night. He suffered a stress reaction in his left ankle during Monday’s practice. Davis said after last Saturday’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks that he tweaked his left ankle in the game and experienced the same problem a night earlier against the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first quarter.
