I hope I didn't step on anyone's toes by starting the first game thread...but I had a few minutes to put it together so I thought I would.
Here's to Jefferson playing without ankle concerns and hopefully a Horncats win!
**NOTE: Most media outlets outside of Charlotte list Zeller as the starter not McRoberts, while the Observer is projecting McRoberts to the starter. Regardless, look for Bismack and whoever doesn't start between McBob and Cody to get plenty of minutes against a physical tandem of Osik and Howard. Also, Jefferson stated earlier in the week he think he will go though the team lists him as questionable.
