    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Struggles in 14 minutes as starter Wednesday

    Asik had two points (0-2 FG, 2-2 FT) and four rebounds in 14 minutes during the Pelicans' 104-97 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday. After being a healthy scratch on Tuesday, Asik received the start on Wednesday. Still, he struggled badly, committing three turnovers and three fouls. Asik has mostly been a huge disappointment this season, and there's little reason to trust him in fantasy over the final four games.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Starting on Wednesday

    Asik will start in Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports reports. Asik has been in and out of the starting lineup as head coach Alvin Gentry has sought to salvage what he can from the injury ravaged roster. Whether or not Asik remains in the lineup is likely up to how the team perform on Wednesday. He should be expected to see a minutes increase while he's in the starting lineup.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Dominates boards in loss Thursday

    Asik scored two points (1-4 FG, 0-2 FT) to go with 15 rebounds over 24 minutes in a 92-84 loss to the Pacers on Thursday. Asik was unable to generate much offense against Myles Turner and the Pacers, but recorded a new season-high in rebounds. After missing a five-game stretch with an ankle injury, Asik has endured lackluster production thus far in March. Asik, who entered Thursday's contest having averaged just 3.8 points with 5.2 rebounds over his previous nine games, will continue receiving steady minutes as he looks to salvage an otherwise lost season.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Double-double in Sunday's win

    Asik scored 15 points (6-9 FG, 3-5 FT) while adding 14 rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes during Sunday's win over the Clippers. The points were a season high for Asik, while the boards tied his previous best on the season. With Anthony Davis (knee/shoulder) out for the remainder of the season, expect Asik's minutes and production to continue trending up as he takes on a lead role in the Pelicans' frontcourt rotation.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Will start in Wednesday's tilt

    Asik will start at center on Wednesday against the Kings, James Ham of CSN Bay Area reports. Asik has not seen consistent minutes this season. After playing just six minutes on Saturday and not playing on Monday he'll be getting the starting nod. In his last start he played 25 minutes, scored four points, and grabbed six rebounds. Look for him to see a similar minutes load once again.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Goes scoreless in six minutes during Saturday's loss

    Asik went scoreless on one field goal attempt and grabbed just three rebounds over minutes in Saturday's loss. Asik barely saw the floor and was invisible in his minutes of action. He now hasn't scored in any of his previous four contests and just 4.5 rebounds. He has essentially zero fantasy value until his minutes pick up substantially.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Plays 25 minutes in return

    Asik (ankle) played 25 minutes and posted four points (1-2 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, one assist, and one block in Saturday's 106-94 loss to the Jazz. The Pelicans were missing Alexis Ajinca due to a bruised sternum, but fortunately, Asik's return from a five-game absence helped give the team some stability at the center spot. Asik should continue to start at center even once Ajinca returns to active duty, but the 29-year-old has been far from a top-tier fantasy asset at his position this season. He typically doesn't play much more than 25 minutes, and rarely ranks as a top priority on the offensive end, as evidenced by his low shot total Saturday.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Will start Saturday

    Asik (ankle) will start Saturday against the Jazz, John Reid of the Times-Picayune reports. Asik sprained his ankle Feb. 21. against the Pistons, and subsequently missed the next five games for the Pelicans. Not only will he make his return Saturday against the Jazz, but he will draw the start as well. Given his relatively short absence from the team, expect him to take on his normal workload Saturday.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Upgraded to questionable Saturday

    Asik (ankle) has been upgraded to questionable for Saturday's matchup versus the Jazz. Asik was expected to miss up to two weeks after spraining his ankle on Feb. 21. His questionable status seems to be right on status with that time-frame, so he will likely be a true game-time decision depending on how he his feeling prior to tip-off. Expect an update on his status closer to game-time.

    Pelicans' Omer Asik: Expected to miss two weeks

    Asik (ankle) is expected to miss up to two weeks with a sprained right ankle, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Asik sprained the ankle during Sunday's win over the Pistons, and he underwent further tests, including an MRI, on Monday. The big man appears to have avoided anything more severe than a sprain, but he's still set to miss a handful of games. Assuming he were to sit out two full weeks, Asik would miss six contests, including matchups with the Thunder, Rockets and Spurs.
