  • Pelicans' Matt Ryan: Upgraded to standard deal

    The Pelicans signed Ryan to a standard NBA contract Saturday. Since the Pelicans claimed him off waivers from the Timberwolves in October, Ryan has spent the entire 2023-24 campaign as one of New Orleans' three two-way players. Heading into Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Lakers, Ryan has appeared in 27 games (one start) while averaging 5.6 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 three-pointers in 14.4 minutes per contest. While Ryan isn't expected to be part of New Orleans' rotation during the team's upcoming playoff run, his conversion from a two-way deal to a standard NBA contract at least ensures that he'll be eligible to play during the postseason.

  • Pelicans' Matt Ryan: Dealing with mild calf strain

    The Pelicans announced Monday that Ryan will be sidelined for approximately 10-to-14 days due to a mild right calf strain. Ryan is averaging 23.0 minutes per game this season, so his absence will open up significant playing time, especially if CJ McCollum (lung) and Trey Murphy (knee) remain sidelined. Jordan Hawkins has the most comparable skill set to Ryan among New Orleans' reserves, so he's an obvious choice to take most of Ryan's minutes, but Jose Alvarado, Dyson Daniels and Naji Marshall could also see slightly larger roles until Ryan is cleared to return.

  • Pelicans' Matt Ryan: Questionable for Monday
