NEW ORLEANS Greivis Vasquez will miss just his second game as a Hornet tonight when he sits out New Orleans' penultimate home game of the season with an ankle injury.
Brian Roberts will start in his place.
Vasquez is second in the NBA, averaging 9.1 assists per game. His 701 assists are nearly 80 more than the next closest player.
He has 25 double-doubles this season and one triple-double.
In addition to Vasquez, New Orleans will be without forward Anthony Davis, who injured his left knee in the Hornets' loss to Sacramento on Wednesday.
