    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Doesn't play in third straight game

    Babbitt (coach's decision) didn't play in Monday's 101-99 loss to the Grizzlies. Babbitt hasn't played in any of the Pelicans' last three games and has made only two appearances since Christmas Day. He'll need an injury to either Dante Cunningham or Alonzo Gee before earning a spot in the Pelicans' rotation.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Has appeared in only two of last eight games

    Babbitt (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Friday's 94-88 overtime loss to the Heat. Babbitt has only appeared in two of the Pelicans' last eight games, seeing a total of 10 minutes during that time. He ranks behind Alonzo Gee and Dante Cunningham on the depth chart at small forward, and will see his playing time plunge further when Quincy Pondexter (knee) returns from injury, likely at some point in January.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Looks to be out of rotation

    Babbitt (coach's decision) hasn't seen the floor in either of the Pelicans' last two games. Babbitt picked up a few starts at small forward earlier this season when the Pelicans were decimated by injuries, but he quickly fell behind Alonzo Gee and Dante Cunningham in the pecking order. With Norris Cole (ankle) and Tyreke Evans (knee) returning to action for their season debuts in Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies, the Pelicans are as healthy as they've been all season, which means Babbitt's chances of cracking the rotation will become even more difficult.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Continues to start at small forward

    Babbitt is averaging 6.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers, and an assist in his four games since joining the Pelicans' starting lineup last week. Babbitt began the season on the injured list with a hamstring ailment, but with the Pelicans dealing with a vast amount of long-term injuries, the small forward has been forced to handle big minutes right away. He's averaging 25 minutes per contest since displacing Dante Cunningham from the starting role, but aside from knocking down three-pointers at a steady clip, he hasn't delivered much overall fantasy appeal.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Starts at small forward Tuesday

    Babbitt will start at small forward Tuesday against the Magic, broadcaster Sean Kelley reports. Babbitt will be getting his first start of the season Tuesday as Dante Cunningham moves to a role off the bench. It's entirely possible for both players to swap roles as the season progresses, so Babbitt could only have short-term value despite getting the start against Orlando.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Returns Saturday

    Babbitt (hamstring) will be available for Saturday's game against the Warriors. Babbitt was unable to play in the first two games of the season with a left hamstring strain. Although, those issues seem to be fading away as he'll be in line for reserve minutes behind Dante Cunningham on Saturday.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Questionable going into Saturday

    Babbitt (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Warriors. Babbitt has yet to make his 2015-16 season debut, but is finally nearing a return after dealing with a hamstring injury all October. He's only expected to be a minor rotation player for the Pelicans this year, but with so many current injuries, he could see an increase in his normal allotment of minutes if he's able to play.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Out Wednesday night versus Portland

    Babbitt (hamstring) is out Wednesday night versus Portland, John Reid of reports. Babbitt missed the season opener as well. Returning from hamstring injuries can be tricky to predict, but hopefully this won't linger on too long. Look for Alonzo Gee to receive some more minutes as a result of this.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Doubtful for Wednesday's game

    Babbitt (hamstring) is doubtful for the Pelican's tilt Wednesday against Portland, Brett Dawson of the New Orleans Advocate reports. Babbitt missed the opener along with a portion of the preseason with his hamstring strain. Look for Alonzo Gee, Ryan Anderson, and Dante Cunningham to play a bit more to fill in for Babbitt if he is held out Wednesday.

    Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Will not play Tuesday due to hamstring injury

    Babbitt (hamstring) is officially listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors. Babbitt was questionable with a hamstring injury coming in, but has now officially been ruled out. He had to sit out of the final three games of the preseason with the injury as well, so it's not all too surprising he won't take the court. With so many injuries derailing the Pelicans to start the season, Babbitt could have a shot at minutes in the mid-teens if he's able to come back and play in Wednesday's matchup with the Trail Blazers. For now, consider him questionable for that outing.
