The New Orleans Pelicans will be without Steven Adams (toe) and James Johnson (abductor) tonight against the Los Angeles Clippers, per Stan Van Gundy in pregame.

Willy Hernangomez is expected to replace Adams in the starting lineup.

The Pelicans remain without the services of Josh Hart (thumb) and Nickeil Alexander-Walker (ankle).

The Clippers will be without Kawhi Leonard (foot), Serge Ibaka (back), Patrick Beverley (hand) and Luke Kennard (rest). Rajon Rondo is questionable to play due to a wrist injury.

However, in a bit of good news, DeMarcus Cousins has permanently latched on with the Clippers, signing on for the remainder of this season.
