Randle (rest) will not play Tuesday against the Warriors, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Randle has played his final game of the season -- his first with the Pelicans. He set a career high in scoring, averaging 21.4 points per game, doing so on 52.4 percent shooting. He also chipped in 8.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists across 30.6 minutes.
Randle will only play in an emergency situation in Sunday's game against the Kings, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports New Orleans reports.
This will essentially be a night off to rest for Randle, who has taken on huge workloads in the second half of the season. Christian Wood will get the start at power forward in Randle's likely absence Sunday.
Randle was the leading scorer for the Pels in the high-scoring affair, as he enjoyed extra responsibility on the offensive end with Anthony Davis (back) sitting out the contest. Randle has been stellar all season while shuttling between the first unit and bench, and he's now scored over 30 points in three of his past four games on the strength of 55.3 percent shooting.
Randle finished with 34 points (12-19 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 7-8 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists, two steals, and one block in 34 minutes during Wednesday's 115-109 loss to the Hornets.
Randle played through his finger injury Wednesday, scoring a game-high 34 points to go with 11 rebounds and a full line. The Pelicans are well and truly done for the season but Randle continues to put up big numbers on a nightly basis. His playing time has been a little up and down over the past couple of weeks, however, that is to be expected given their desire to lose as many games as possible. As long as he is healthy, it appears as though he should remain on the court and could be a major factor down the stretch in those leagues that are still active.
Randle (finger) is not on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's contest against the Hornets.
Randle left Sunday's game due to a finger injury, playing just 23 minutes. While he couldn't finish the game out, he'll be fine to participate in Wednesday's matchup.
