Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Will start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will start in Thursday's contest against the Trail Blazers.

With Anthony Davis (elbow) out once again, Okafor will slide into the starting center role. Okafor started in Monday's loss to the Nuggets, recording nine points (4-9 FG, 1-1 FT) and three rebounds across 18 minutes. He could see even more action Wednesday considering Julius Randle is also dealing with a foot injury.

Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Solid in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor entered the starting line for Anthony Davis (elbow) in Monday's 116-111 loss to the Nuggets and managed nine points (4-9 FG, 1-1 FT) and three rebounds across 18 minutes.

While he wasn't in there long, Okafor was solid with his modest allotment of playing time. The 2015 third overall pick has been productive over his last two games overall, the first pair of contests this season in which he's seen double-digit minutes. Okafor is averaging 10.0 points and 3.0 rebounds across 16.0 minutes during that stretch, lending credence to the notion that he could serve as a viable frontcourt rotation option alongside Julius Randle as the season unfolds.

Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Slated to start Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will transition into the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Nuggets, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

Okafor saw just two minutes of action in his team's last contest, but he's in for a big uptick in minutes after shifting into the starting five. With Okafor taking on a new role and Anthony Davis (elbow) ruled out, Julius Randle will move back to the bench for the time being.

Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Plays two minutes in Wednesday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor saw two minutes in Wednesday's 131-112 win over the Rockets.

Okafor committed two turnovers, otherwise he didn't record a stat. With that being said, he was able to shake off an ankle injury to play in this one. The Rockets represent a terrible matchup for Okafor, but it's possible he'll earn a few more minutes against teams that feature bigger frontcourts.

Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Available to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (ankle) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's season opener against the Rockets, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

This was the expected course of action all along after Okafor was given a probable designation earlier this week. He'll slot in as depth at center, likely battling Cheick Diallo for rights to the backup center job to Anthony Davis.
