>After a 15-game absence due to a back injury, Hornets forward Peja Stojakovic will make his return to the floor tonight at Golden State (9:30 p.m.). Hornets coach Byron Scott told the media in Oakland today that Stojakovic will come off the bench and is expected to play between 20 and 25 minutes.
New Orleans (47-27) has gone 10-5 over that 15-game stretch, but that includes several narrow victories that were decided in the final minutes. The Hornets' offense has sputtered at times without its first-string 3, failing to tally 100 points or more in nine straight games from March 13-27.
