Pelicans' E'Twaun Moore: Out Wednesday
Moore (lower leg) is out Wednesday against the Thunder, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Pelicans will be thin Wednesday with Moore, Nikola Mirotic (ankle) and Elfrid Payton (finger) all sidelined. Solomon Hill and Darius Miller figure to see extra run while Moore is absent.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Back from G League
Jackson has been recalled from the G League.
Jackson has spent time in both the NBA and the G League. In three games with the Texas Legends, he's averaged 29.0 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.7 assists. In 15 games for the Pelicans, he's averaging 4.3 points across 12.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' E'Twaun Moore: Questionable Wednesday
Moore (lower leg) is questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Thunder.
Moore missed Monday's game against the Celtics due to a lower leg injury. In his stead, Soloman Hill started and played 20 minutes while Darius Miller garnered 27 minutes off the bench. Those two players would likely stand to benefit again if Moore misses Wednesday's matchup.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Ruled out Wednesday
Mirotic (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Thunder.
Mirotic re-injured his right ankle during Monday's loss to Boston, so his absences isn't overly surprising, but it's not the most encouraging sign that he's been ruled out more than 24 hours in advance. On a more positive note, the Pelicans have three days off following Wednesday's contest, so Mirotic will have almost a full week to rest before Sunday's home matchup with the Heat.... See More ...

Pelicans' Ian Clark: Scoreless in 17 minutes
Clark finished with zero points (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), two rebounds, and two assists in 17 minutes during Monday's 113-100 loss to the Celtics.
Clark hadn't played in three of the last four games, the exception being a four-minute stint during garbage time in last Wednesday's matchup with the Mavericks. Clark averaged 15.8 minutes during November, but prior to Monday the last time he saw at least 15 minutes was back on Nov. 23. E'Twaun Moore (lower leg) missed Monday's loss after previously being listed as probable, and if Moore is able to rejoin the lineup for Wednesday's meeting with the Thunder there's no guarantee Clark will even see the court....

Pelicans' Tim Frazier: Nears double-double in loss
Frazier totaled eight points (3-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 10 assists, one rebound, and one steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 113-100 loss to the Celtics.
Frazier reached double figures in dimes for the second time this season, and he's averaging 8.1 assists per game since entering the starting lineup back on Nov. 28. Frazier seems likely to hold down the fort as the starting point guard through the month of December, but he'll be pushed back into a reserve role once Elfrid Payton (finger) returns to the lineup....

Pelicans' Julius Randle: Posts 20 points, 11 boards in loss
Randle accumulated 20 points (7-13 FG, 6-8 FT), 11 rebounds, and four assists in 28 minutes during Monday's 113-100 loss to the Celtics.
Randle finished with more turnovers (five) than assists, but otherwise it was another stellar showing for the microwave big man. Randle has contributed a double-double in three of the last four games, and so long as he can avoid foul trouble, he figures to keep earning fairly heavy minutes, especially with Nikola Mirotic (ankle) re-injuring himself during this one....

Pelicans' Anthony Davis: Scores 41 points in Monday's loss
Davis recorded 41 points (17-34 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 7-9 FT), seven rebounds, four steals, and two assists in 38 minutes during Monday's 113-100 loss to the Celtics.
Davis saw a full load of minutes and exploded offensively despite being listed as questionable with a hip injury, which he suffered in Sunday's win over the Pistons. Davis has appeared in 26 of 29 games this season, and with Nikola Mirotic sidelined by a lingering ankle injury, Davis could be in line to see heavy minutes once again during Wednesday's matchup with the Thunder....

Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Could miss some time
Mirotic (ankle) will be sidelined until he's fully healthy, Scott Kushner of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Mirotic reinjured his ankle during Monday's contest, and head coach Alvin Gentry stated after the game that he's going to hold Mirotic out until his ankle has healed considerably. The 27-year-old has reportedly been playing through a lingering ankle injury, so he may be in line to miss a game or two while on the mend.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Ruled out with ankle injury
Mirotic won't return to Monday's game against Boston after suffering a right ankle injury.
Mirotic scored three points and snagged a rebound over seven minutes prior to exiting the contest. The severity of the injury has yet to be revealed, but his availability moving forward should get cleared up following further evaluation.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' E'Twaun Moore: Officially out Monday
Moore (lower leg) won't play in Monday's game against the Celtics, Scott Souza of The Providence Journal reports.
Although listed as probable earlier in the day, Moore has been ruled out of Monday's game with a lower-leg issue. Darius Miller and Solomon Hill are candidates for additional run in Moore's absence.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Anthony Davis: Good to go Monday
Davis (hip) will play in Monday's game against the Celtics, Adam Himmelsbach of The Boston Globe reports.
Davis is good to go after initially being listed as questionable on the injury report with a hip injury he suffered in Sunday's tilt with Detroit. It doesn't look like there will be any minutes restriction for Davis, so owners can expect him to have a full workload.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' E'Twaun Moore: Probable for Monday
Moore (lower leg) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Celtics.
Moore was able to play through the issue Sunday against the Pistons -- tallying four points and two rebounds in 16 minutes -- and looks poised to do so again Monday.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Anthony Davis: Listed as questionable Monday
Davis (hip) is listed as questionablev for Monday's game against the Celtics.
Davis suffered a hip injury during Sunday's win over the Pistons after colliding with Blake Griffin. While he was able to return, the big man wasn't his usual self, finishing with six points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt), nine rebounds, four assists and five blocks in 26 minutes. Look for his status to clear up closer to tipoff.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Julius Randle: Drops 28 in win
Randle had 28 points (11-19 FG, 0-2 3PT, 6-7 FT), six rebounds and five assists in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Randle continues to roll along in the month of December, and he's now averaging 29.5 points, 11.3 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game over his last four contests. He's played at least 34 minutes in each of those games and looks to have taken over as the starter over Nikola Mirotic for the time being.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Huge game in win over Detroit
Holiday had 37 points (14-22 FG, 6-10 3PT, 3-3 FT), five assists, five rebounds and three assists in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Holiday had one of his best all-around efforts of the season, hitting six three-pointers and finishing as a plus-17 in 40 minutes of action. However, he was responsible for half of the Pelicans' 18 turnovers, breaking a streak of six games in which he'd committed three or fewer.... See More ... See Less
