The whole band is nearly back together!

According to head coach Alvin Gentry in the last hour, Nikola Mirotic should return tonight for the New Orleans Pelicans, who are welcoming the Cleveland Cavaliers. Mirotic will be capped to about 20 minutes of action and come off the bench as Julius Randle will remain in the starting lineup.

Mirotic last appeared in a game on December 10 against the Boston Celtics, but he hasn’t looked like the same player we saw come out of the gates since early November — before all of the ankle issues began.

E’Twaun Moore remains out, but considering he relayed to the media yesterday after practice that he thought he would play, we can expect to see him against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday.
