Vernon Carey starting for Hornets Friday night; Bismack Biyombo to bench

Charlotte Hornets catcher Vernon Carey is in the lineup Friday in the team's game against the Brooklyn Nets.

What It Means:

Carey has been coming off the bench as of late, but that's changing on Friday. The rookie will now start down low, and veteran big Bismack Biyombo will revert to a bench role.

In 10 games this season, Carey has averaged 1.0 rebounds and 2.5 FanDuel points.
