      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: 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.

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.

      Pelicans' Luke Babbitt: Questionable for opener

      Babbitt (hamstring) is questionable to play in Tuesday's season opener against the Warriors, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Babbitt's only a minor rotation player off the bench for the Pelicans, but considering how banged up the team is heading into the opener, his potential return would be quite a welcome development. Though he doesn't figure to see much more than mid-teens minutes if he plays Wednesday, Babbitt's solid stroke from the outside -- he led the league last season with a 51.3 percent shooting rate from three-point range -- would provide the Pelicans with some more floor spacing. Expect an announcement on his status to come down before Tuesday's contest tips off.
