Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Will come off bench Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will shift back to a bench role for Wednesday's matchup with the Grizzlies, Grizzlies radio play-by-play announcer Eric Hasseltine reports.

Okafor has logged 15 minutes or less in four straight games, so he was already essentially off the fantasy radar despite previously working with the starters. His demotion to the bench certainly doesn't help things and he'll likely struggle to hit double-digit minutes. This does appear to be a matchup-based decision, however, so Okafor could be back in the starting five as soon as Friday's game against the Suns.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Grabs nine boards in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor posted six points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT) and nine rebounds in 15 minutes during Tuesday's 107-103 loss to the Pelicans.

While Okafor drew the start, it's Chieck Diallo who's been reaping the most benefits while Nikola Mirotic (hip) eases back into play. Once Mirotic is 100 percent, both Okafor and Diallo's production should take a big hit.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Will rejoin starting five Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will rejoin the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Trail Blazers.

The Pelicans opted to start Darius Miller instead of Okafor during Saturday's contest, though it appears that was just a one-game experiment. As a result, Okafor will reclaim a starting role Tuesday, but considering he's seen single-digit minutes in three of his last four games, he likely shouldn't be relied upon for those in either season-long leagues or playing DFS contests Tuesday.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Coming off bench Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

Anthony Davis is starting at center for the contest, with Darius Miller taking over at power forward. The Pelicans will be without Nikola Mirotic (hip) for the contest, so Okafor should still receive a sizable workload off the bench.

Pelicans' Emeka Okafor: Reclaims starting role Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor will re-enter the starting five for Saturday's game against the Rockets.

Okafor came off the bench in favor of Nikola Mirotic Thursday, though it appears that was simply for a matchup reasons. Look for Okafor to rejoin the starting five Saturday, which should mean an uptick in minutes from the 12 he logged Thursday.
