Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Probable for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (ankle) is listed as probable for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Rockets.

Okafor missed a chunk of the preseason with a sprained right ankle, but is nearing full strength ahead of the opener. Barring a surprise uptick in discomfort, look for Okafor to take the floor Wednesday and he should slot in as depth in the frontcourt behind Anthony Davis. Fantasy owners will likely want to take a wait-and-see approach with Okafor until he shows he's worthy of consideration in leagues.

Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Will not play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (ankle) will not play Thursday against the Raptors, Jake Madison of LockedOn Pelicans reports.

Okafor was questionable coming in with a sprained right ankle, and the Pelicans will play it safe and hold him out of the preseason finale. Prior to the injury, Okafor looked to be in much better shape than previous seasons, and the hope is that the Pelicans will eventually get some quality reserve center minutes out of the former top-five pick. However, until he proves capable of sticking in an NBA rotation, Okafor isn't a fantasy consideration in most formats.

Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Upgraded to questionable Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (ankle) has been upgraded from out to questionable for Wednesday's preseason matchup against the Heat.

Wednesday and Thursday mark the Pelicans' final two preseason contests, and it appears Okafor wants to try to play in both of them after suffering a sprained ankle during the exhibition opener. More information on his status should arrive as the team ramps up activity prior to game time.
