More of the same in preseason for the Hornets, who routed the Wizards by 22 to improve to 5-0. New Orleans starters Tyson Chandler and David West were rested and did not play today, while Julian Wright (sprained right ankle) was out and is listed as week-to-week. Five Hornets reached double figures, headed by Melvin Ely (19 points) in a starting role.

The team will fly back to New Orleans tonight. The Hornets' next preseason game is Tuesday at 7 p.m. Central time vs. Indiana. You can visit during the game to discuss the Hornets with other fans in our Courtside Live chat.
