Alvin Gentry’s answer in response to his first question regarding his keys to the Pelicans vs Suns matchup in pregame media included a bit of necessary humor: “To try to get to the end of the game and have at least five guys that we can play.”

Seven New Orleans players will miss tonight’s contest as Stanley Johnson is the latest to join the team’s walking wounded.

In all, Johnson, Anthony Davis, Jrue Holiday, E’Twaun Moore, Darius Miller, Frank Jackson and Trevon Bluiett will not play for New Orleans.

Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton headline the Suns injury list. For a full rundown of all the Phoenix players out, have a look at the full preview here.
