Hornets' Cody Zeller: Won't play Monday

Zeller (knee) has been ruled out for Monday's preseason contest against the Bulls.

Zeller was able to resume practicing with contact last week, but with three more preseason games on the schedule, the Hornets aren't in a rush to get the big man back in action. If he's able to avoid any further setbacks to his knee before the regular season starts, Zeller looks poised to split the minutes at center with Roy Hibbert.
