CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Phoenix Suns coach Jeff Hornacek says guard Goran Dragic will return to the starting lineup against the Charlotte Hornets after missing the last two games with a strained back.

Dragic is averaging 16.1 points, 4.0 assists and 3.4 per assists for the Suns (12-14), who are looking to break a six-game losing streak Wednesday night against the Hornets.

The Hornets (6-18) have lost three consecutive games.

Hornets forward Jeffery Taylor's 24-game suspension is over, but Charlotte coach Steve Clifford says he is inactive against the Suns.
