The New Orleans Pelicans announced minutes before their tip against the Brooklyn Nets that Brandon Ingram is back in the starting lineup after leaving the game early against the OKC Thunder with a head injury and Derrick Favors is available to play.

While Alvin Gentry will start Jahlil Okafor at center, it’s good news nonetheless to have Favors back in the fold. The Pelicans defense has oft struggled mightily so having a rim protector of Favors caliber could provide immediate dividends — that’s of course if he’s healthier than when we last saw him.
