The New Orleans Pelicans are welcoming back one of their players from injury. After missing the last three games, Herbert Jones (left ankle soreness) will appear in tonight’s matchup against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

While Brandon Ingram (right hip contusion) and Zion Williamson (right foot surgery) remain out — and Naji Marshall just joined the walking wounded in the last few minutes, Jones should provide a spark. He possesses a team-best +4.1 plus minus — the only positive mark currently on the Pelicans.

NAW vs SGA. Jones vs Dort. Tons of young guys trying to make a name for themselves. Two rosters that would love nothing more than to add a W to the win column. My gut tells me we’re going to be treated to a fun ballgame.
