Insight: Horton aggravated a lower body injury in Tuesday night's win over Phoenix. Wednesday's matchup is a continuation of a game that was postponed when Stars center Rich Peverely had a cardiac event. Horton scored in that contest, so he could be the game's high scorer even without playing on Wednesday.
