The reason that Rozier missed the game against the Heat was because of an illness. While we do not know if he was experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, Rozier seems to be doing well now (he’s been active on Twitter).
While the NBA has been awaiting its minimum 30-day suspension to end, Hornets players have been expressing their thoughts of boredom on Twitter. Some players are playing NBA2K, while others learn new skills.
With the minimum suspension ending in three weeks, the NBA should provide more news about the hiatus soon. As of now, it’s unknown if the Hornets will get to finish the rest of their regular-season schedule.
