New Orleans rookie forward Anthony Davis and Orlando guard Jameer Nelson both are returning to their respective lineups for Monday night's game between the Hornets and Magic.
Hornets coach Monty Williams says Davis is ready to return with no playing time restrictions after missing two games with a left shoulder sprain.
Magic coach Jacque Vaughn says Nelson also is without playing time limitations and will start after missing six games because of a left patella contusion and strain of his left knee.
Nelson has averaged 14.5 points and 7.4 assists in 43 games this season.
Davis has averaged 12.5 points and 7.4 rebounds in 45 games.
