Parker is expected to receive a day of rest and will not be available for Saturday's game versus the Kings.
Grab the value with the Hornets with the points Friday against the red-hot Portland Trailblazers.
The Blazers have been a great bet at home over the past few seasons.
They are 31-15 ATS in their last 46 home games. And this is a pretty
low number here against a Hornets team that is just 1-5 ATS in their
last six road games.
Damian Lillard (elbow) being listed as questionable is somewhat
worrisome, but this is a great spot for the Blazers. They are 17-7 at
home while the Hornets are just 5-13 on the road.
