The Wizards (2-15) are seeking their first road win in New Orleans, where Coach Randy Wittman has been forced to install his sixth different starting lineup against the Hornets. Jordan Crawford will get the nod at starting point guard with A.J. Price going down with a broken hand in the Wizards’ 101-97 loss to the Golden State Warriors.
Shaun Livingston will also get more minutes, as the only pure point guard remaining on the roster.
The Hornets (5-14) have lost three in a row, but they will welcome back No. 1 overall pick Anthony Davis, who has missed the past 11 games with a stress reaction in his left ankle. Davis also missed time because of a concussion and is averaging 16 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.2 blocks in six games this season. He will come off the bench.
