The New Orleans Pelicans will be without a number of key personnel against the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight inside the Smoothie King Center.

CJ McCollum (health and safety protocols), Brandon Ingram (left great toe contusion), Naji Marshall (non-COVID illness) and Larry Nance Jr. (right shoulder soreness) have all been ruled out.

Shai Gilgeous-Alexander has set the world on fire, posting more 30-point scoring games than anyone else in the league.

Thank goodness that Jose Alvarado, Herb Jones and Dyson Daniels are at least available, right?

There’s a decent chance that we may see Kira Lewis Jr and Dereon Seabron too, both of whom were recalled from the Birmingham Squadron in anticipation of a number of Pelicans being sidelined against the Thunder.

For more on tonight’s matchup and specifically how the Pelicans defense of the 3-point shot could be in jeopardy, please give our preview a read.
