NEW ORLEANS — Greivis Vasquez will play for the Hornets tonight against Dallas after missing New Orleans’ Friday night game with an ankle injury.

The third-year point guard has missed three games with the Hornets and this season has put his name squarely in the running for most-improved player.

His season average of 13.9 points per game is nearly five points than his career average and his 9.1 assists are nearly four more per game than his previous best season.
