Hornets vs. Magic: Lineups, injury reports and broadcast info for Friday

·1 min read

With a string of results going against them – including their own – on Thursday, the Hornets (32-34) now face a nearly must-win scenario against the Magic (21-45), and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

Much has changed in the over three months since these two sides last had a back-to-back. On those nights, Gordon Hayward’s game-winner in the final seconds gave the Hornets a win before the Magic bounced back the following night in late January. Now, eight of the players that featured between the two teams in that game will either not be available or have been traded.

Devonte’ Graham missed Thursday’s game for Charlotte while Gordon Hayward, Cody Martin and Miles Bridges remain out. Orlando will be without Wendell Carter Jr., Michael Carter-Williams, James Ennis III, Chuma Okeke, Otto Porter Jr. and Terrence Ross on top of Markelle Fultz and Jonathan Isaac.

Here’s when you should tune in to see the game:

  • Date: Friday, May 7

  • Time: 8 p.m. ET
