Lance Stephenson did not travel with the team to Philadelphia due to a pelvis sprain.

This isn't a good sign as Stephenson wasn't even able to make the trip to Philadelphia for Friday's game against the 76ers. He will be reevaluated on Friday and we should have a further update on his status at that time.

Lance Stephenson (groin) did not practice Thursday and is highly doubtful for next two games.

18 Dec, 12:17 PMSource

Lance Stephenson scored seven points (3-8 FGA/ 1-1 FTA) with four rebounds and two assists in the Hornets 111-106 loss to the Suns.

Stephenson injured his groin during Wednesday's game and tried to play through it before exiting the game for good in the fourth quarter. It has been a disastrous first season for Stephenson in Charlotte to the point that the Hornets are already looking to deal with their prized off-season signing. Stephenson is likely considered questionable for Friday's game against the 76ers and will likely be a game time decision.

Kemba Walker scored 27 points (9-20 FGA/ 5-6 FTA) going 4-for-8 from three-point range with two rebounds, seven assists and one steal in the Hornets 111-106 loss to the Suns on Wednesday.

Kemba is really doing all he can for the struggling Hornets team, averaging a season best 20.3 points, 5.2 assists and 4.0 rebounds in the month of December. Walker has exceed the 20 point plateau in four of the seven games this month and should have no problem continuing his recent success on Friday against the 76ers who boast the NBA's worst record.

Al Jefferson scored 28 points (13-22 FGA/ 2-2 FTA) with 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in the Hornets 111-106 loss to the Suns on Wednesday.

A big game was expected from Big Al on Wednesday as the Suns had nobody that could match up with him and he did not disappoint has he registered his eight double-double of the season. After starting off slow in the rebound department this season Jefferson has been hitting the glass hard in the month of December, averaging 9.3 rebounds per game which has risen his season total to 8.0 rebounds per game. Expect Jefferson's rebounding numbers to continue to climb as he looks to repeat last years averages of 21.8 points and 10.8 rebounds per game.

Jeff Taylor (back from suspension) and Noah Vonleh will be inactive Wednesday for the Hornets.

This comes as no surprise. Vonleh has been inactive for all but three games this year and Taylor is likely going to be eased back into action after serving a suspension.

Cody Zeller (broken nose) is warming up without a protective face mask.

Zeller suffered a broken nose on Monday, but it isn't going to keep him out of action. Though he's foregoing a protective mask during warmups, it seems likely that he'll be wearing one once the game starts. Face mask or not, Zeller will be in the starting lineup for Charlotte on Wednesday night.
