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.
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.
Okafor (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's preseason finale against the Raptors.
Okafor has been sidelined since suffering a sprained ankle in the preseason opener. He's a 50/50 shot to get some run in before the regular season kicks off Wednesday against the Rockets.
Okafor's availability had been going back and forth, but Okafor informed media members following Wednesday's morning shootaround that he will not play Wednesday. He'll look to take part in the team's final preseason contest Thursday against the Raptors.
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.
