  • Okafor (coach's decision) went unused Tuesday in the Pelicans' 120-108 loss to the Bucks. Aside from a three-minute cameo Jan. 24 against the Nuggets, Okafor hasn't played in any of the Pelicans' other nine games since his 25-point, 14-rebound blowup outing versus the Pistons three weeks ago. He remains firmly behind Derrick Favors and Jaxson Hayes on the depth chart at center.

  • Okafor (coach's decision) didn't see the floor during Wednesday's 121-117 loss to the Spurs. Okafor had been listed as probable due to a back injury and was ultimately cleared to play. However, with Derrick Favors (back) returning from a one-game absence, Zion Williamson (knee) making his debut and Jaxson Hayes receiving 16 minutes, there wasn't any playing time left over for Okafor. As such, on nights when the front court is fully healthy Okafor will likely be an afterthought in coach Alvin Gentry's rotation.

  • Okafor (back) is available to play Wednesday against the Spurs. The 24-year-old was considered probable with the back issue after missing the last three games, so it's not a major surprise he's back in action Wednesday. Okafor should return to his bench role with Derrick Favors (back) also retaking the court.

  • Okafor (back) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. Okafor is on track to return Wednesday after missing the past three games with a back injury. While Okafor tallied 25 points, 14 rebounds, five assists and three blocks across 34 minutes in his last appearance, his playing time could be limited Wednesday with Derrick Favors (back) also expected back.

  • Okafor (back) is questionable for Wednesday's game against San Antonio, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. Okafor has missed the last three games with a back injury, and he's once again being considered questionable. Expect an update on the big man's availability as tipoff nears.
