The Clippers needed to clear some roster spots, so they sent Johnson to Pelicans and proceeded to cut Ajinca, as well as reserve point guard Jawun Evans to trim the roster to 15 players. Ajinca appeared in 39 games for the Pelicans last season, averaging 5.3 points and 4.5 rebounds in 15.0 minutes per game. The Frenchman will now enter the free agency pool and look to latch on with another franchise.
Ajinca (quad) has been ruled out for Thursday's preseason finale against the Raptors.
Ajinca will finish the preseason without seeing the court once and is now in danger of missing the start of the regular season as he continues to work his way back from a right quadriceps strain. He'll have just under a week to get ready for Wednesday's regular-season opener, so look for the big man to potentially try and up his activity in the coming few days.
Ajinca (quadriceps) won't play in Wednesday's preseason game against Miami.
Ajinca hasn't managed to take the court in the preseason because of a right quadriceps strain, but he's been trending in the right direction. With only one exhibition remaining before the regular season begins, the Pelicans would certainly like to see Ajinca play some minutes in Thursday's finale.
Ajinca (quadriceps) is out for Friday's preseason contest against the Knicks.
Ajinca has been battling a right quadriceps strain, but was able to get some shots up Thursday. He's still not feeling well enough to take the floor in a game, however.
Ajinca (quad) was seen getting shots up during Thursday's practice, Andrew Lopez of the Times-Picayune reports.
Ajinca has missed the first two games of the preseason because of a right quadriceps strain, but appears to be nearing the latter stages of his recovery. He was able to get some shots up at Thursday's practice and it seems as if he's slowly upping his activity. Still, Ajinca will likely miss at least one more preseason game considering the Pelicans matchup with the Knicks on Friday. At this point, Ajinca has a chance to be ready for the regular season, though he's not expected to be a fantasy contributor.
