  • Pelicans' E.J. Liddell: Undergoes surgery on ACL

    Liddell (knee) underwent surgery on his torn right ACL on Monday, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Liddell remains without a timetable to rejoin the action, but he's likely destined to miss most, if not all, of the 2022-23 campaign. He suffered the injury during Summer League action after being selected 41st overall by New Orleans in the 2022 NBA Draft.

  • Pelicans' Daeqwon Plowden: Gets camp deal with Pels

    Plowden agreed Tuesday with the Pelicans on an Exhibit 10 contract, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Though Plowden is unlikely to win a spot on the Pelicans' season-opening roster, he'll join the club for training camp and will likely report to the organization's G League affiliate, the Birmingham Squadron, if he gets cut. Plowden, an undrafted rookie wing out of Bowling Green, earned the Exhibit 10 deal after participating in the Las Vegas Summer League with the Pelicans earlier this month. Over three games in Las Vegas, Plowden averaged 11.3 points and 4.0 assists in 16.1 minutes while shooting 64.7 percent from the field, 50 percent from three-point range and 88.9 percent from the free-throw line.

  • Pelicans' E.J. Liddell: Diagnosed with torn ACL

    Liddell (knee) was diagnosed with a torn ACL on Monday night and will be out indefinitely.

    The rookie suffered the injury during the third quarter of Monday's Summer League game against the Hawks. Liddell was selected with the 41st overall pick in last month's draft. It's possible, if not likely, that he'll miss all of the upcoming season.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Goes off for 30 in LVSL victory

    Murphy finished Monday's Las Vegas Summer League game against Atlanta with 30 points (10-18 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.

    As a second-year player who played a meaningful role for New Orleans last season, Murphy is the clear alpha dog on this Pelicans summer roster, and that was explicitly clear Monday night. The Virginia product knocked down three three-pointers and worked his way to the line nine times in a game the Pels eventually won by 28 points. Murphy will likely step into a slightly larger role in the rotation next season, but the Pelicans are bringing back most of their major pieces on the wing, so he'll still play behind Herbert Jones and Brandon Ingram.

  • Pelicans' E.J. Liddell: Exits without return

    Liddell exited Monday's Summer League contest against the Hawks with a knee injury and did not return, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    The rookie forward was helped off the court after an apparent knee injury in the third quarter and did not return to the game. The extent of the injury is still unknown.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Resting after heavy workload

    Alvarado won't take the floor during Tuesday's Summer League contest versus Atlanta, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Alvarado played a lot recently with the Puerto Rican National Team, and the Pelicans don't want to overload him during the summer session. Per Will Guillory of The Athletic, Alvarado is likely done for the remainder of Summer League and will instead presumably shift his focus to training camp in the fall. The second-year guard is fresh off signing a multi-year contract with the Pelicans and should log plenty of minutes off the bench again in 2022-23.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Likely done for Summer League

    Daniels is unlikely to return to Summer League due to an ankle injury, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Daniels' injury isn't considered serious, so he should be ready by the time training camp rolls around. The team will take precautions with the No. 8 overall pick, who finishes Summer League with just one point over eight minutes in his lone appearance for the Pelicans.
