Charlotte Hornets forward Gordon Hayward (a sore left hamstring) has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday night’s away game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Kelly Oubre Jr. (left hand surgery) is also absent indefinitely.

Oubre is expected to be absent for 4-6 weeks after surgery to repair a torn ligament in his left hand. As today’s conference showdown begins, Charlotte has stumbled in three games and lost seven of her last ten games.

In terms of some NBA betting sites, the Hornets have the fifth lowest odds of winning the championship. However, sports betting gives Milwaukee the second-best odds among the Boston Celtics.
