Peja Stojakovic Hoping To Return

Hornets starting guard Peja Stojakovic, who hasn’t played since Nov. 24, hopes to return this season following back surgery. “I’m hoping — I don’t want to predict anything,” said Stojakovic, a former All-Star who is averaging 17.8 points this season. “Hopefully we can keep on winning and secure the playoff spot.”
