  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Limited in loss Tuesday

    Ingram chipped in 11 points (4-12 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and four assists over 25 minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game loss to the Lakers.

    Ingram was noticeably absent during the fourth quarter, an indication that he is still bothered by a knee injury that cost him the final three weeks of the regular season. New Orleans will now have to win Friday's game against the winner of the Sacramento and Golden State matchup, should they hope to advance to the postseason. While it is likely Ingram will get the starting nod, there is a chance he remains limited based on what we saw Tuesday.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Plays significant role in loss

    Alvarado logged 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds and seven assists over 25 minutes during Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game loss to the Lakers.

    Alvarado closed the game Tuesday, providing the Pelicans with plenty of energy off the bench. He served as the primary ball handler down the stretch, making several key plays, particularly on the offensive end. He did appear to suffer two separate ankle injuries during the second half, something that the medical staff will be monitoring ahead of Friday's must-win matchup against either the Warriors or the Kings.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Passive performance Tuesday

    Jones finished Tuesday's 110-106 Play-In Game loss to the Lakers with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt) and two steals across 35 minutes.

    Jones failed to have a significant impact in the loss, delivering serviceable contributions on both ends of the floor. Tuesday's loss will now see the Pelicans having to suit up Friday, where they will face either the Kings or the Warriors. Although Jones is a key piece for New Orleans, his production is something that typically fluctuates in both fantasy and reality.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Will undergo testing

    Coach Will Green said Tuesday that Williamson is dealing with left leg soreness and will undergo testing Wednesday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Williamson mysteriously left Tuesday's Play-In Tournament game against the Lakers with 3:13 remaining in the fourth quarter after scoring a layup over Anthony Davis. Williamson was still able to tally 40 points (17-27 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-9 FT), 11 rebounds, five assists, one steal and one block in 36 minutes before exiting. The 23-year-old forward's status for Friday's matchup with the winner of the Warriors versus the Kings is uncertain.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Heads to locker room

    Williamson went to the locker room with 3:13 remaining in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's game versus the Lakers, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Williamson came up grimacing after scoring a layup over Anthony Davis and was forced to head to the locker room. If Williamson is unable to return, he will end the contest with a dominant performance of 40 points, 11 rebounds, five assists one steal and one block in 36 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Limited impact in loss Sunday

    Williamson chipped in 12 points (4-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists and two steals over 34 minutes during Sunday's 124-108 loss to the Lakers.

    The fact that Williamson finished with more field goal attempts than points scored tells you all you need to know about his performance Sunday. This was his worst outing since March 22, but the star forward doesn't have a lot of time to reflect on this appearance, as the Pelicans need him at his best to face the Lakers again on Tuesday, this time in the Play-In Tournament. One bad outing is not going to ruin a stellar season, however, as Williamson scored 25 or more points in 32 different appearances during the regular season while also racking up 12 double-doubles across 70 contests.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Scores 13 points in return

    Ingram (knee) closed with 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and five rebounds over 23 minutes during Sunday's 124-108 loss to the Lakers.

    Playing for the first time since March 21 in his return from a left knee bone contusion, Ingram took back his spot in the starting five from Trey Murphy but unsurprisingly had his minutes managed. Though he shot efficiently from the field in his return, Ingram was a team-worst minus-28 during his time on the court and handled a meager 20.3 percent usage rate, narrowly eking out Herbert Jones (20 percent) for the lowest among the Pelicans' five starters. The Pelicans were likely just happy to have one of their top players back in the fold before the end of the regular season, and assuming Ingram avoided any setbacks in his return, he should be ready to take on a bigger workload in the rematch with the Lakers on Tuesday in the Western Conference Play-In Tournament.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Scores 25 points in loss to Lakers

    McCollum recorded 25 points (9-19 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds and seven assists across 34 minutes during Sunday's 124-108 loss to the Lakers.

    McCollum's touches on offense might decrease once Brandon Ingram is back at full speed, but that wasn't the case Sunday, and the veteran guard responded by extending his streak of games with 25 or more points to seven appearances. Plus, McCollum has scored at least 20 points in all but one of his outings dating back to March 22, so there's no question he figures to have a prominent role when the Pelicans take on the Lakers in the Play-In Tournament on Tuesday.
