Cunningham will draw the start at power forward for Tuesday's preseason game against the Hawks, Pelicans radio play-by-play announcer Sean Kelley reports.

With Anthony Davis out with an ankle injury and Terrence Jones coming off the bench in his first game back from a knee injury, Cunningham is the next man up and will get some run with the top unit. However, once the regular season begins on Oct. 26, Cunningham will likely struggle to see significant minutes and is only slated to bee a deeper reserve in the frontcourt.
