  • Valanciunas finished Wednesday's preseason win over Orlando with 13 points (5-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds and two blocks. Making his Pelicans debut after sitting out Monday's opener, Valanciunas looked right at home, narrowly missing a double-double in 20 minutes of action. The veteran big man is a virtual lock to begin the season as the starting center with the hope that his floor-spacing ability helps open up things up for Zion Williamson (foot).

  • Valanciunas will start in Wednesday's game against the Magic, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. Valanciunas will make his first start of the preseason after he was held out of Monday's opener due to a right thumb strain. Willy Hernangomez will shift to the bench with Valanciunas back in the lineup.

  • Valanciunas (thumb) is considered probable for Wednesday's contest against the Magic, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

  • Valanciunas (thumb) will not play Monday against the Timberwolves, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. The big man was doubtful coming into the day due to a strained right thumb, so his absence doesn't come as much of a surprise. With Zion Williamson (foot) also out, Jaxson Hayes could be set for extended minutes up front.
