The New Orleans Pelicans are getting their phenom back for their matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Zion Williamson, who has missed the last two games for New Orleans after a nasty fall against the Jazz, is returning to the starting lineup.

Herb Jones and Brandon Ingram remain missing from the usual group, but according to BI’s Instagram account, he shouldn’t be out for much longer.

Along with Naji Marshall in for Jones, Trey Murphy will make his third consecutive start in Ingram’s stead. We know about his long-range shooting. And we’ve been wowed by the addition of a dribble-drive game to his repertoire this season. But did you know he’s also become one of the best defenders on the team?
