The Charlotte Hornets look to pick up a big road W this Wednesday, as they take on the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Charlotte is only 1 game back in the Southeast Division which really is impressive for a team that most did not think much of during the preseason with many fans being surprised that this team has maintained a record over .500 well into April.
The Hornets probably cannot go very far here in 2021, and it is not totally because of their play on the court, but mostly based on their injuries, as they have gotten bit by the injury bug in a big way.
The loss of LaMelo Ball was a big loss, as he was making a big time difference on this offense and things did not get any worse recently, as they also lost their big preseason signing Gordon Hayward who looks to be out for a minimum of 4 weeks.
The Hornets felt those injuries in their last game, as they were routed by the Boston Celtics by 30 points in a game that never really felt all that competitive outside of the first quarter.
Oklahoma City Thunder
It has not been pretty in OKC recently, as the Thunder have only managed to win one of their last 7 and are coming off getting blown out by a pretty poor Pistons team with a final score of 132-108.
The OKC Thunder have also been completely wiped out by injuries this year with their injury list currently containing around 10 names with guys like SGA, Horford, Dort, Bazley and Williams all effected by various injuries.
With the current situation the Thunder find themselves in, the coaching staff has decided to use these opportunities down the stretch to take a look at a few of their guys who occupy more ”down the bench spots” or guys who usually don’t play as auditions for next year and therefore you are unlikely to see most of these guys eclipse 30 minutes of floor time.

Free Charlotte Hornets vs. Oklahoma City Thunder NBA Prediction:
The OKC Thunder are a bit of an overly glorified G-League team at the moment and that is the main reason I am rolling with the Hornets here.
The Hornets on the road as -4.5 point favorites without Ball or Hayward really does not sound like a great proposition for most people and that is a reasonable stance to take, but this OKC team is going to be an absolute mess down the stretch and the Hornets still have all the motivation to pick up this win which I think they do.
