  • Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Will start Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Okafor will get the start Wednesday against the Lakers, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports. After being initially reported he would return to the bench, Okafor will start his second consecutive game for the Pelicans. Okafor was productive in his last start, providing eight points and seven rebounds in 14 minutes, however Nikola Mirotic saw the bulk of the minutes, playing 29. This will likely be the case once again, limiting Okafor's fantasy value.

  • Okafor will come off the bench as Nikola Mirotic returns to the starting lineup, Scott Kushner of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports. Okafor's move to the starting lineup lasted just one game, as he returns the bench Wednesday. His move to the bench shouldn't be seen as a demotion, as his move into the starting lineup was a matchup-based decision. In his three games with the Pelicans, Okafor is averaging 5.0 points and 5.7 rebounds in 14.3 minutes.

  • Okafor totaled eight points (4-10 FG), seven rebounds and one block across 14 minutes in Monday's 118-103 win over the Pistons. Okafor earned his first start in nearly five years as the Pelicans tried to quell the Pistons' big men tandem. He flirted with a double-double with light usage, but mainly served the purposed of slowing Andre Drummond on the offensive end and getting the Pelicans a victory. Expect Okafor to head back to the bench with Nikola Mirotic playing well.

  • Okafor could make his Pelicans debut Saturday against the Timberwolves, Scott Kushner of the New Orleans Advocate reports. Okafor and the Pelicans finalized a 10-day deal earlier Saturday, and it's possible that the veteran big man could see some minutes off the bench for what's been an injury-depleted roster. For what it's worth, Okafor is not listed on the team's injury report, so at this time it appears he'll likely be available in some capacity.

  • Emeka Okafor: Let go by 76ers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Okafor's NBA comeback attempt has hit a snag, as the 76ers opted to waive the veteran big man Saturday, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports. The distant cousin of now former teammate Jahlil Okafor had not appeared in an NBA game since the 2012-13 seaason. The 34-year-old Okafor figured to have a long shot at landing on the team's final roster, but it offered a feel-good story for training camp. He recorded 17 points and 16 rebounds in six exhibition games. While he is unlikely to find a new landing spot, he could be called upon if a team is looking for veteran big man leadership.
