Cody Zeller (personal) ruled out for Hornets Friday

Charlotte Hornets forward/center Cody Zeller (personal) has been ruled out for Friday's game versus the Minnesota Timberwolves.

What It Means:

It's not clear if Zeller is dealing with something that will cause multiple absences, but his absence leaves an opening in the Hornets' starting lineup. Willy Hernangomez, Bismack Biyombo, and rookie PJ Washington should all see more minutes. Zeller scored 15 points (6-of-11 field goals, 3-of-4 free throws) with 12 rebounds in 35.1 minutes in the Hornets' opener.

numberFire's models project Zeller for 10.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.1 blocks per contest over the rest of the season.
