New Orleans Pelicans vs Washington Wizards Game Thread

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Ryan Anderson will miss the game due to a stomach virus. Relax folks, we have on good authority that he's actually ill so put those imminent trade rumors aside for the time being.

On the other hand, Kendrick Perkins is expected to play. Alvin Gentry stated in his pre-game comments that he may see a few minutes at the most since the Washington Wizards will likely play small for much of the game.

These roster announcements could potentially open up minutes for a seldom used player off the bench. Particularly, I'm looking at Luke Babbitt. Theoretically, he could cover for some of the missing perimeter firepower lost due to a sidelined Anderson.
