Jonas Valanciunas (non-COVID 19 illness) and Brandon Ingram (right ankle sprain) were ruled out by Willie Green in pregame media.
Josh Hart (left ankle sprain) remains a game-time decision, as his status will be determined after going through his normal pregame workout.
If you may recall, the 2019-20 Pelicans were without their starting frontcourt in an early season matchup against a fully healthy Nuggets squad. However, Jahlil Okafor (26 points) and Frank Jackson (21 points) came through in a big way, leading New Orleans to the surprise 122-107 victory.
So, who steps up for the Pels tonight? Willy Hernangomez and/or Nickeil Alexander-Walker? Both are coming off big games in the loss to the 76ers. What about Jose Alvarado? Hey, for good juju, Antonio Daniels is sporting the rookie point guard’s jersey for this one!
