NEW ORLEANS - Rookie first round picks Anthony Davis and Austin Rivers will both start in Friday night's game against the Charlotte Bobcats, the team announced at a morning shootaround.

Davis missed the past two games after suffering a concussion in last Friday's game against Utah. The Hornets split those two contests.

Rivers missed the last game with an sprained index finger.

The team is still missing Eric Gordon, who the team said would be in Los Angeles rehabbing his injured right knee for the next few weeks.

Without those three players the team scored a franchise-low 62 points Wednesday in a loss to Philadelphia.
