Sacre was waived by the Pelicans Friday. Sacre had been battling a foot injury through training camp, and his inability to get on the court ultimately cost him a chance at making the team. Sacre has been unable to be a legitimate contributor in the NBA and will likely find a better opportunity for playing time in the D-League or overseas.
Sacre (foot) sat out Thursday's 114-111 preseason loss to the Magic. Sacre, who had been battling a sore foot for much of the preseason, was listed as probable heading into the game, but didn't end up playing in what was a coach's decision. While that's an indication Sacre is reasonably healthy, it also shows that he's not under serious consideration for a roster spot. Look for him to get cut after the Pelicans wrap up their preseason schedule Friday against the Timberwolves.
Sacre (foot) is listed as probable for Thursday's preseason finale versus the Magic. Sacre has seen action in just one preseason game thus far, but will have one last chance to make an impression on the coaching staff Thursday with roster cuts for the regular season looming. Barring a spectacular conclusion to the preseason schedule, Sacre will likely start the 2016-17 campaign in the D-League or overseas.
Sacre (foot) will not play in Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Hawks, Pelicans studio host Daniel Sallerson reports. It will be the fourth straight absence for Sacre, who continues to battle a right foot injury. The former Gonzaga standout faced an uphill battle to crack the Pelicans' roster out of camp, and the injury has mostly prevented him from helping his cause. His final chance to take the floor will come in Thursday's preseason finale against the Magic.
Sacre (foot) has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Rockets, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports. Sacre will now officially miss his fourth preseason game, which has significantly lowered his chances of making the Pelican's final roster come the start of the regular season. Even if Sacre is healthy enough to play towards the end of the preseason, his time in New Orleans will likely be coming to an end in two weeks when final roster cuts need to be made.
