More reinforcements!

NBA: Golden State Warriors at New Orleans Pelicans Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Pelicans will welcome Lonzo Ball back to action tonight as the team continues to get healthier and healthier.

However, Ball is expected to come off the bench against the Phoenix Suns so head coach Alvin Gentry will likely stick with the same starting lineup of Jrue Holiday, JJ Redick, Brandon Ingram, Kenrich Williams and Jaxson Hayes.

Josh Hart, Derrick Favors, Darius Miller, Zion Williamson, and Jahlil Okafor all remain out.

Already without Deandre Ayton, the Suns will be without starting center Aron Baynes and starting point guard Ricky Rubio. Phoenix has lost three of four, but don’t expect them to roll over. Without Baynes and only 16 minutes from Rubio, the Suns nearly beat the Kings on Sacramento’s home floor a few nights ago, falling 120-116.

Geaux Pels!
