Ball (knee) didn't practice Saturday, with head coach Stan Van Gundy noting afterward that the point guard will likely be out "days or a week," Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.

According to Marc J. Spears of, Ball will miss his third straight game Sunday against the Kings, but the 23-year-old could have a chance to return for Tuesday's contest against the Jazz. While Ball has been out the past two games, Nickeil Alexander-Walker has drawn a pair of starts, averaging 24.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 26.5 minutes. Eric Bledsoe also should see an expanded role in Ball's stead, though he came off the bench Friday against the Lakers in his return from an eye injury and posted only seven points, two assists, one rebound and one block in 20 minutes.
