Pelicans' Solomon Hill: Set for further tests
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pelicans head coach Alvin Gentry said Thursday that Hill (hamstring) will undergo further tests later this week, after which the team should have an update on the forward's recovery timeline, Scott Kushner of The Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

After being away from the team the week prior to the All-Star break to continue rehabbing on his own, Hill reported back to New Orleans' practice facility Wednesday for further treatment. Though Hill had previously said he was hopeful to make his season debut at some point in February, that now looks like a pipe dream, given that he has yet to be cleared for full-contact practices. If Hill receives good news from the tests, however, an early-March return could become realistic, though he would probably require at least a week of practice time in such a scenario in order to build his conditioning back up. The Pelicans aren't ripe with quality options at small forward, so Hill could crack the rotation once healthy, though he offers minimal fantasy upside. In 80 appearances last season, Hill contributed meager averages of 7.0 points (on 38.3 percent shooting from the field), 3.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.2 treys and 0.9 steals in 29.7 minutes per contest.

Pelicans' Walter Lemon Jr.: Signs 10-day contract with Pelicans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lemon signed a 10-day contract with the Pelicans on Tuesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.

Lemon has had a wildly impressive G-League campaign with Fort Wayne this season, averaging 22.7 points, 4.6 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 2.1 steals across 37 minutes per game. The 25-year-old will now finally get his call up to the big leagues, and with the Pelicans fairly light on backcourt depth, Lemon has a legitimate chance to be featured in the rotation during his tenure in New Orleans.

Pelicans' Anthony Davis: Scores 12 points in All-Star victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Davis produced 12 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 16 minutes during Sunday's 148-145 victory over Team Stephen in the All-Star game.

Davis saw limited court-time in Monday's All-Star clash, finishing with just 12 points. It was a far cry from his 52 point effort in last years matchup, but this game was played at a much higher intensity, limiting individual performances. Davis appeared fully healthy and only saw reduced run due to the matchups. He looks ready to go as the Pelicans try to hang onto one of the final playoff spots and barring any injury setbacks, should make a push for the number one overall rank come seasons end.

Pelicans' Darius Miller: Scores 19 points in 31 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Miller registered 19 points (6-8 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 31 minutes Wednesday in New Orleans' win over Los Angeles.

Miller's three-point shooting keeps him in the rotation with the Pelicans, a team that has been in dire need of players who can space the floor. He will likely never be a premier fantasy option across all formats, but his shooting ability raises the floor of his value.

Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Scores 16 points in 30 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic registered 16 points (7-17 FG, 2-8 3Pt), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals, and two blocks across 30 minutes Wednesday in New Orleans' win over Los Angeles.

When Mirotic was traded to the Pelicans, who could have foreseen that Emeka Okafor would be starting over him? It's no reason to worry, the big man might be in a bench-role but he continues to get starters minutes and produces like a starter. Mirotic could become a double-double machine playing alongside Anthony Davis, and his ability to knock down the three makes him one of the most intriguing fantasy options on the Pelicans. Mirotic's fantasy value saw one of the larger spikes amongst players moved at the deadline.
