Pelicans' Omer Asik: Intends to play at some point this year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Alvin Gentry said he intends to get Asik (illness) on the court at some point this year, Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune reports.

Asik has yet to see the floor this year, as he was diagnosed with Crohn's disease prior to the season. It definitely doesn't sound like Asik is nearing a return, but coach Gentry does still plan to have him available at some point this year. For now, Asik can still be considered out indefinitely and even when he does return, he likely won't become a fantasy contributor behind the likes of DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis.

Pelicans' Tony Allen: Plays 18 minutes in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Allen (knee) finished Monday's 114-107 victory over the Thunder with six points (3-4 FG, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, one assist, one steal and one turnover across 18 minutes.

Allen had missed the previous four contests with inflammation in his knee, though came back to play 18 minutes Monday, which surpassed his season average of 13.9 minutes. Allen has been providing relief at both wing spots, but for the most part, has been working behind the likes of Jrue Holiday, E'Twaun Moore and Dante Cunningham. That restricts his fantasy value a bit and he's really only a potential target for those in deeper leagues. Allen is not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Ejected in tough victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins finished with 18 points (7-17 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 26 minutes during Monday's 114-107 victory over the Thunder.

Cousins was ejected after 26 minutes of playing time, still finishing with a full stat line. He was removed from the game after an elbow to the head of Russell Westbrook. It didn't appear too serious, and he should be fine to go for the next game. Cousins has been amazing this season, but has seen his production dip slightly over the last two weeks. This was to be expected after his ridiculous first fortnight.

Pelicans' Anthony Davis: Dominates in tough victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis collected 36 points (9-19 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 18-22 FT), 15 rebounds, three assists and two blocks in 44 minutes during Monday's 114-107 victory over the Thunder.

Davis was everywhere for the Pelicans, leading his team to a tough victory. DeMarcus Cousins was ejected after 26 minutes of action, leaving Davis to put the team on his back. He didn't disappoint, as they held off the Thunder in the final quarter to get the win. He has been in a bit of a slump over his last three games, but was able to get things going in a classic performance. His number will be up and down depending on who has the hot hand, but should still be viewed as a top-five player, barring any injury setbacks.

Pelicans' Dante Cunningham: Shifting to bench role Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cunningham will come off the bench for Monday's game against the Thunder, Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune reports.

Cunningham has started all 16 games he's played in this season, but hasn't necessarily been the most effective player, averaging 5.4 points and 3.6 rebounds across 25.3 minutes. That prompted the Pelicans to move E'Twaun Moore into the top unit at small forward, with Cunningham coming off the bench. Either way, Cunningham shouldn't be on the radar in the majority of fantasy leagues due to his low production across the board.
