Game On: Hornets @ Grizzlies

Published: October 18, 2010

The Hornets take on Memphis tonight at the FedEx Forum and are likely to be without David West yet again. The good news, however, is that it looks like newly acquired point guard Curtis Jerrells will be in uniform and available. In addition, the bench will be a little shorter as both Mustafa Shakur and Darryl Watkins were released today.

For those of you counting, that leaves 16 guys on the current roster and most believe that the Hornets will keep at least 14 guys (and possibly 15). Guys like Pops, Alexander, Strawberry, and possibly even Mbenga are fighting for those last 2-3 spots, so you would assume they would go all out in this game.

In addition, expect big minutes again for Q-Pon. It is likely that Monty is trying to assess whether Pondexter should start the season off on the 12 man roster, or if he would be better served in the D-League. Tip off is at 7:00 PM CST.
