Cody Zeller (knee) ruled out again for Hornets versus Heat
Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (sore left knee) will not play on Sunday afternoon versus the Miami Heat.
Hornets head coach James Borrego said Zeller is still dealing with swelling in his hand, so he will sit out a third consecutive game. Bismack Biyombo will make a second straight start and Willy Hernangomez could see some work against Miami's taller frontcourt.
Zeller is averaging 25.1 FanDuel points through 49 games (47 starts) this season, with 10.1 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.8 blocks per contest.
