Moore registered 18 points (8-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), one rebound and one assist across 35 minutes during a 120-112 loss to the Heat on Wednesday. Moore's 18 points marked his highest total since Jan. 25 when he also scored 18 points against the Thunder. He's not lighting up the stat sheet every game, but Moore continues to be a steady scorer off the bench, as he's scored in double figures in five of the last six outings. Moore doesn't provide much else other than points.
Moore tallied 13 points (5-9 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block over 31 minutes in Sunday's 105-97 win over the Lakers. The sixth-year guard hit double digits in the scoring column for the third time in the last four games, with Moore turning in his best shooting night since Feb. 13 in the process. He's been particularly effective from long distance since the All-Star break, shooting 70 percent (7-for-10) from behind the arc over the last four contests. Although he's moved to the bench, Moore appears to be taking to his role on the second unit, keeping him as a viable option in deeper formats and a cost-effective play in daily leagues.
Moore submitted six points (2-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five assists, four rebounds and one block across 37 minutes in a 101-98 overtime loss to the Spurs on Friday. After missing a game last week to tend to a personal matter, Moore has suited up in each of the Pelicans' last three contests, but has since surrendered the starting role at shooting guard to Hollis Thompson. Fortunately for Moore, the team's lack of backcourt depth hasn't resulted in him losing out on much playing time, and his 37 minutes Friday were a season high. Since he's no better than the Pelicans' fourth offensive option behind high-usage stars Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins and point guard Jrue Holiday, Moore's daily upside is fairly limited, but he could still deliver value in deeper leagues. He's averaging 9.0 points, 2.7 assists, 2.0 rebounds, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.3 steals over his last three contests.
Moore (personal) isn't listed on the injury report for Sunday's game against the Thunder, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports. Moore missed Saturday's game against the Mavericks with a personal matter, but as expected, it won't keep him off the court for long. He'll be back for Sunday's tilt with the Thunder and will likely reclaim a role in the starting lineup as the team's top shooting guard. If that's the case, look for Hollis Thompson to head back to the bench in the corresponding move and see a decreased role.
Moore (personal) will not play Saturday against the Mavericks, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports. Moore is away from the team due to a personal issue, so the Pelicans will be forced to replace him in the lineup at shooting guard. Following the DeMarcus Cousins trade, the Pelicans are relatively light on backcourt depth, so Hollis Thompson, who signed a 10-day deal Friday, may be the top candidate to get the start. Consider Moore questionable to play Sunday against the Thunder in Oklahoma City.
