Asik may see a drop in the number of games he starts during the upcoming season, John Reid of NOLA.com reports.

Asik started 64 of the 68 games he played this past season, but it appears he could see a drop in those numbers. Coach Alvin Gentry indicated that he could move over Anthony Davis, Terrence Jones, or use backup Alexis Ajinca at different points in the year. It sounds as if the team's starter could change on a matchup basis, depending on whether the Pelicans want to use a quicker, small-ball lineup or go with a traditional center look with a guy like Asik. Asik was a big disappointment last season despite starting the majority of the games he played and averaged just 17.3 minutes per game, to go along with 4.0 points and 6.1 rebounds. While he'll be looking for a bounce-back campaign, from the sounds of coach Alvin Gentry's plans for the upcoming season, Asik may have a tough time doing that with additional competition at the five spot.

Davis is fully healthy as camp gets underway, but the Pelicans will monitor his workload throughout the preseason, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Davis underwent surgery in March to fix a stress reaction in his left kneecap and spent much of the offseason recovering from a torn labrum in his left shoulder. GM Dell Demps noted that Davis is not under any medical restrictions, but the goal is for him to open the regular season at "1,000 percent." As such, Davis will likely be held out of certain parts of practice -- he did not participate in Tuesday's scrimmage -- and could also be rested for some preseason contests. The former No. 1 overall pick is coming off of another stellar season, in which he averaged 24.3 points, 10.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game, but his young career has already been marred by a number of injuries, causing him to miss at least 14 games in each of his first four seasons.

Coach Alvin Gentry indicated Jones could play some center for the Pelicans this season, Justin Verrier of ESPN.com reports.

Jones expected to join the Pelicans as a depth option at both forward spots, with his main duties being the direct backup to the oft injured Anthony Davis at power forward. However, it appears he'll also spend time at center, which gives him a little boost in his overall value. The 24-year-old should offer the team plenty of versatility in the frontcourt, considering his ability to play all three spots, so there's a chance he can increase his usage rate from a year ago. Jones has only played a combined 83 games over the last two seasons, though, so he'll also need to figure out a way to stay healthy and on the court during the upcoming campaign.

Though Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry hasn't decided who will open the season as the starting point guard in place of Jrue Holiday (personal), Frazier is believed to be a leading candidate, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

With both Holiday and Tyreke Evans (knee) likely to miss extended action, Frazier, E'Twaun Moore and Langston Galloway are in line to assume the bulk of the minutes at point guard, but it's not certain how exactly the playing time distribution will shake out. There's reason to believe, however, that Frazier may open camp as the favorite to start, given his greater familiarity with Gentry than Moore or Galloway, both of whom were offseason pickups. In addition, Moore profiles as a better option at shooting guard due to his aptitude from three-point range, whereas Frazier looked the part of a pure point guard while picking up extra time in place of an injured Holiday late in 2015-16. In seven April contests, Frazier averaged an impressive 13.3 points, 10.4 assists, 4.9 rebounds and 2.0 steals in 33.3 minutes per game. While it's unlikely he'll approach playing time on that level again, Frazier's strong per-minute production makes him a worthy late-round flier in deeper leagues in the event things break right for him in training camp.
