Moore (heel) will not play in Tuesday's game against Atlanta, Pelicans studio host Daniel Sallerson reports.

Moore sustained a bruised right heel during the Pelicans' last preseason game Wednesday, but it's somewhat surprising that he's been ruled out Tuesday considering he was able to return to practice over the weekend. The Pelicans are likely just exercising caution with the Purdue product, who is in competition with rookie Buddy Hield to open the season as the starting shooting guard.
