CJ McCollum, Naji Marshall available for Pelicans in matchup against very short-handed Spurs

It’s mildly surprising that New Orleans is listed only as a 7-point favorite

The New Orleans Pelicans will receive a couple of reinforcements for their matchup against the San Antonio Spurs.

CJ McCollum (health and safety protocols) and Naji Marshall (non-COVID illness) will be available after overcoming illnesses and bringing conditioning levels up to par, per Bally Sports New Orleans’ Jen Hale.

The Pelicans beat the Spurs handily in their first matchup of the season, a 129-110 victory that saw Zion Williamson dominate the the tune of 32 points on just 18 field goal attempts.

The Spurs will be without multiple players from that meeting, including Jakob Poeltl, Jeremy Sochan and Doug McDermott. They’ll also be missing Josh Richardson.
