Darius Miller will be making his first career start in his first nationally televised NBA game tonight when the Hornets host the Sixers. The game is at 8:00 ET and will be televised on ESPN.
Miller will start in place of the injured Austin Rivers. Rivers sprained his finger while not passing the ball in Tuesday’s practice.
The Hornets will also be without Anthony Davis, unfortunately. Davis suffered a concussion on Friday night when he took an elbow to the head from Rivers. The replay shows Rivers’ elbow catch Davis while Rivers was attempting to play defense, something he’s not accustomed to doing. When asked about the collision after the game, Rivers took a 30 ft. contested shot and bricked it.
Good luck to Darius. Make us proud.
