Willie Green did go on to say in pregame media that Murphy’s right foot is progressing from a contusion suffered in the Boston Celtics game, but some soreness remains.
CJ McCollum (Non-Covid Illnesss) is out for tonight’s game at San Antonio— New Orleans Pelicans (@PelicansNBA) November 23, 2022
The bigger story, though, is that McCollum will sit this contest out as well, dealing with a non-COVID illness.
Although they are on the road and a little short-handed, the Pelicans are listed as 7-point favorites. The thought process is understandable.
The Spurs have fallen off a cliff after a 5-2 start, posting a 1-10 record since. Overall, their offense ranks 26th, and their defense, 30th.
