With Josh Hart unavailable for Friday’s game against the Chicago Bulls, Herbert Jones will be in the New Orleans Pelicans starting lineup, alongside Devonte’ Graham, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Brandon Ingram and Jonas Valanciunas.
Jones has quickly become a fan favorite for the effort he displays on the court. Teammates quickly coined the term, “Not on Herb,” during informal September workouts in Nashville.
The rookie forward out of Alabama should be of great assistance in trying to slow down the Bulls attack as Chicago’s starting lineup is filled with potent scorers on the wing in Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan.
Herb Jones gets the start - Willie Green said pregame that defense would be taken into mind when picking tonight’s starter and there it is. https://t.co/CO7g5kdXmx— Andrew Lopez (@_Andrew_Lopez) October 22, 2021
