    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Will miss regular season finale Wednesday

    Ajinca (shoulder) will miss Wednesday's regular season finale against the Timberwolves. Ajinca was questionable coming into the day, and with the Pelicans eliminated from playoff contention, there was really no reason to rush the 7-2 big man into action for Wednesday's matchup in Minnesota. The 27 year-old center will finish the season with a line of 6.0 points and 4.6 rebounds per game, but the stats don't show how good of a job he did producing during this past month, during which practically the entire Pelicans team has been ravaged by injuries. Expect Omer Asik and Kendrick Perkins to pick up minutes in Ajinca's absence.

    Ajinca (shoulder) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against Minnesota.

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Questionable for Wednesday

    Ajinca (shoulder) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports. Ajinca missed Monday's game against the Bulls due to an unspecified shoulder injury suffered on Saturday against the Suns, and he's been listed as questionable after originally being taken off the team's injury report. With the Pelicans eliminated from the playoffs they have nothing to gain by forcing Ajinca back if he isn't totally healthy. If he plays expect him to not be at all limited, if he's held out look for Luke Babbitt and Dante Cunningham to see some extra time on the court.

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Decides to sit Monday

    Ajinca (shoulder) will not play in Monday's game against the Bulls, despite being taken off the injury report earlier in the day. There was a hint of optimism that Ajinca wouldn't need to rest after sustaining a right shoulder injury Saturday against the Suns, although he will indeed sit after playing in 12 consecutive games for a battered New Orleans squad. In his absence, expect Dante Cunningham and Luke Babbitt to cover Ajinca's role at power forward. His next opportunity to play will be in the regular season finale against Minnesota on Wednesday.

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Not listed on injury report

    Ajinca is not listed on the injury report in advance of Monday's matchup with the Bulls, Justin Verrier of ESPN reports. Ajinca departed Saturday's game against the Suns with an apparent shoulder injury, finishing with four points and four boards in 23 minutes. It doesn't look to be anything serious, however, and Ajinca should be considered healthy Monday night. He'll likely be back in his starting role alongside Omer Asik in the frontcourt.

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Leaves Saturday's game with shoulder injury

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Career night in Friday's win

    Ajinca scored a team-high 28 points (12-17 FG, 4-4 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in 37 minutes during Friday's win over the Lakers. The points and boards were both career highs for Ajinca, who's now averaging 15.0 points, 8.3 boards and 1.0 blocks over his last nine games. Given the injury-riddled nature of the Pelican's frontcourt, expect Ajinca to continue playing big minutes and producing solid numbers to close out the regular season.

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Starting Tuesday

    Ajinca will get the start Tuesday against the 76ers, Pelicans radio voice Sean Kelley reports. Omer Asik got the starting nod in the Pelicans' last game against Brooklyn, but coach Alvin Gentry will go with Ajinca on Tuesday. Ajinca played 29 minutes, compared to Asik's four, against the Nets, though the Pels' rotation has been rather volatile for much of the last few weeks.

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Coming off the bench on Thursday

    Ajinca will come off the bench for Thursday's matchup with the Nuggets, John Reid of the Times-Picayune reports. Ajinca has been in and out of the starting lineup for the injury ravaged Pelicans. He'll be moving to a bench role for the time being due to Luke Babbitt getting the starting nod. It's unclear if he'll come off the bench for the rest of the season or return to the starting lineup, but he figures to see a slight minutes reduction while coming off of the bench.

    Pelicans' Alexis Ajinca: Carries the Offense with 18 Points

    Ajinca scored 18 points to go along with nine rebounds in the Pelicans' loss to the Spurs Wednesday. Ajinca has every opportunity to emerge as a go-to scorer for the Pelicans in wake of the litany of injuries in New Orleans. Over his last four games he's averaged 15.3 points and seven rebounds per game. With little to no competition for minutes, Ajinca should be able to keep up his recent performance through the end of the season.
