The Orlando bench players benefited from their minutes in both games, totaling 64 points on Monday, with Moritz Wagner scoring a season-high 18 points in 24 minutes, RJ Hampton contributing 14 points and eight rebounds, and Robin Lopez scoring 13 points in 6 vs. 11. Shooting.

Charlotte BJ Washington (elbow) was listed as questionable on Wednesday. On Sunday, the Hornets called up the 2021 James Bucknight-picked lottery and Kay Jones’s pick in the 2021 first round of the Greensboro Swarm in the J-League and assign Vernon Curry Jr. to Greensboro.
