As announced earlier in the day, Brandon Ingram will miss tonight’s game, tending to very minor soreness after bumping knees in the contest against the Timberwolves. Replacing him in the lineup will be Nickeil Alexander-Walker, New Orleans’ high-scoring leader in Minnesota.
In addition, Jonas Valanciunas will make his debut in a Pelicans’ uniform, moving Willy Hernangomez to the bench.
