CHICAGO (AP) Center Cody Zeller has been ruled out for Charlotte's game at Chicago due to a sore right shoulder.

Zeller sprained his shoulder on March 9 against Washington, and then missed the next four games. He played 19 minutes in Friday's 101-91 loss at Sacramento, and was held out of Sunday's game in Minnesota.

The 7-foot Zeller is averaging 7.6 points per game. He scored in double figures in six consecutive games before the injury against the Wizards.

The Hornets had dropped five of seven heading into Monday night's game against the Bulls.
