Hornets-Nuggets Preview

(AP) -- With Al Jefferson back and Gerald Henderson contributing more, the Charlotte Hornets are trying to extend a positive stretch despite losing their top playmaker.

As they forge ahead without Kemba Walker, the Hornets look to avoid dropping back-to-back games for the first time in 2015 Saturday night when they visit the Denver Nuggets.

Charlotte (19-27) had won nine of 11 - including a 3-0 mark without Walker - before Wednesday's 95-86 loss at San Antonio in the opener of a unusual three-game road swing that concludes Monday in the nation's capital.
