Okafor (ankle) will play and start in Friday's matchup with the Raptors, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

Anthony Davis (back) is a late scratch for the contest, so Okafor will get the starting nod. He has averaged 14.3 points and 7.7 boards across 26.0 minutes in 15 starts this season.
