Bobby Jackson is questionable for Fridays game against the Bulls after a rib injury he acquired in the game against the Raptors. I hate to be pessimistic but I don't think the Hornets will win many games with this current unhealthy roster. It's sad because these guys were fun to watch at the beginning of the season.
Scott says Paul will return probably early Feb. He also said Paul wanted to play in January and he hasn't ruled that out.
As far as getting a high lottery pick it looks like that's not going to happen. They still have a shot of playoffs but if not they will end up 9th or 10th.
I'm in the minority who thinks they are going to playoffs. With Chandler and Butler and Pargo playing so well towards the end of all the mess and West and Paul back I think they still have a pretty good chance.
