Ariza sits out for Hornets because of foot injury
New Orleans forward Trevor Ariza is sitting out the Hornets’
game against the Atlanta Hawks because of an ailing right
Hornets coach Monty Williams says Ariza has been dealing with
tendinitis for ”a while,” and the team decided to give him Friday
night off and see how he’s feeling Saturday.
Williams won’t speculate on how long Ariza might be out until he
gets more information from the medical staff.
Ariza is the Hornets’ third-leading scorer at 10.8 points per
game. He’s been replaced in the lineup by Quincy Pondexter.
