      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Returning Friday

      Asik (illness) will return to action Friday against the Spurs. Anthony Davis will also play Friday, so the Pelicans will have most of their frontcourt strength available for the challenge against the Spurs.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Remains questionable Friday

      Asik (illness) is questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs. The Pelicans continue to deal with a rash of injuries, and both Asik and Anthony Davis (shoulder) are in jeopardy of missing Friday's game. Asik has already missed the Pels' last two games, forcing Alvin Gentry to turn to Alexis Ajinca, Ryan Anderson and Dante Cunningham for big minutes in the frontcourt.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Out versus Thunder Wednesday

      Asik (illness) is out for the Pelican's matchup versus Oklahoma City Wednesday. This will be the second consecutive game missed for Asik due to a stomach virus. With Anthony Davis and Kendrick Perkins out as well, New Orleans will be faced with a shallow frontcourt. That should result in more minutes for Ryan Anderson and Alexis Ajinca. The Pelican's next game is Friday versus San Antonio, it remains to be seen if Asik will be healthy enough to go.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Doubtful for Wednesday's contest

      Asik (illness) is unlikely to play Wednesday against Oklahoma City, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Asik missed Tuesday's matchup with Denver due to a stomach virus and has now been listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game after his health didn't improve. Though originally listed as the probably starter that now appears unlikely, and Alexis Ajinca will likely start at center and get a majority of minutes at the position.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Questionable for Wednesday

      Asik (illness) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Thunder, Brett Dawson of the New Orleans Advocate reports. Despite the questionable tag, Asik is listed as a probable starter at center for Wednesday's game, perhaps suggesting the Pelicans are counting on him to be available after the stomach virus prevented him from playing Tuesday against the Nuggets. After averaging nearly 10 boards per game a season ago, Asik has been a nuisance for fantasy owners in 2015-16, as he's suited up for just five of the team's 11 games to date while dealing with a calf strain and now the stomach virus. Moreover, the calf injury appears to have deflated his playing time when he has been able to take the court, as Asik has cleared 20 minutes on just two of the occasions he's played. If both Asik and Anthony Davis end up sitting out Wednesday, the Pelicans would likely have to go with a patchwork frontcourt that could include Ryan Anderson and Alexis Ajinca as starters.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Will sit out Tuesday due to illness

      Asik (illness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Nuggets due to a stomach virus, Jim Eichenhofer of reports. This is the first we've heard of the sickness, but it will force Asik to sit out Tuesday. Look for Dante Cunningham to take his spot in the starting lineup. Although it's only a stomach virus, Asik should be considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Thunder as well.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Struggles in lineup return

      Asik contributed two points (1-2 FG), five rebounds, and a blocked shot over 16 minutes in his return to the starting lineup Tuesday against the Mavericks. Asik was listed as questionable heading into the contest before receiving the green light to play, but the Pelicans held down his minutes in what marked just his second appearance of the season. With Anthony Davis suffering a right ankle sprain in the contest that will likely keep him out of Wednesday's game against the Hawks, the Pelicans may count on Asik to handle a larger workload in the second contest of the team's back-to-back set. It would hardly represent an ideal development, but with injuries up and down the New Orleans roster, coach Alvin Gentry might not have a choice but to give Asik 20 minutes of court time Wednesday.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Starting Tuesday

      Asik (calf) will start Tuesday's game against the Mavericks, Jim Eichenhofer of reports. Asik is dealing with a strained calf, but made it through shootaround without any issues and will return to the starting lineup Tuesday. This marks just his second regular season game this season, after notching only 10 minutes against Golden State on Oct. 31. It's still unclear whether or not he'll be on any sort of minutes restriction, though, so that's something to take into consideration as well.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Questionable Tuesday

      Asik (calf) remains questionable for Tuesday's game in Dallas. Asik is battling a strained calf, and the team will wait until after shootaround Tuesday to give him a final reevaluation. He's played in only one game this season, logging 10 minutes on Oct. 31 against Golden State.

      Pelicans' Omer Asik: Not in starting lineup Saturday

      Asik is not in the starting lineup Saturday against the Rockets, Sean Kelley radio voice of the New Orleans Pelicans reports. Asik is still trying to rebound from a calf injury that has plagued him for well over a month, but his return to the lineup won't come Saturday. With the Pelicans only suiting up nine players for their game against the Mavericks, Alexi Ajinca could be the main beneficiary from Asik's absence.
