Stojakovic excused from Hornets game
Team spokesman Dennis Rogers says the Hornets' swingman had to attend to family matters and was out for Sunday night's game against the Kings. It was not immediately clear whether Stojakovic will be able to join New Orleans for Tuesday night's game at the Lakers.
Stojakovic has started nine of the Hornets '16 games this season, averaging 11.6 points and 3.9 rebounds. He has made 39 percent of his 3-point attempts and has been a key contributor as New Orleans won four of five games.
