The Hornets want to find a backup point guard who'll be ready to play in the team's game scheduled for 7:00pm Central Time tonight against the Lakers, reports Jim Eichenhofer of Hornets.com. The team announced earlier today that starter Jarrett Jack will miss the rest of the season with a stress fracture in his right foot. Greivis Vasquez is the only other point guard on the roster, and coach Monty Williams suggested the team may have to go with point guard by committee at times tonight.
Lester Hudson, who's scored 23 and 26 points in his last two games with the Cavs, is a free agent after his 10-day contract with the Cavs expired last night, so the Hornets could look to sign him if Cleveland doesn't beat them to it. Another option could be Jeremy Wise, who led the D-League in assists this year and was in training camp with the Heat.
