Game thread: Graham, Alvarado available for important matchup against Spurs

There’s also news that Brandon Ingram could miss entire Pelicans 3-game road trip

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Utah Jazz Jeffrey Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Pelicans injury report grew larger yesterday, but Jose Alvarado and Devonte’ Graham, who both were listed as questionable about 24 hours ago, are expected to play against the San Antonio Spurs.

Brandon Ingram remains out and there’s a strong possibility that we won’t see him at all on this 3-game road trip. He stayed behind in New Orleans due to contracting a non-Covid illness but is still sidelined with hamstring soreness, per Willie Green in pregame.

The Pelicans will start Graham, CJ McCollum, Herb Jones, Jaxson Hayes and Jonas Valanciunas.

The Spurs are expected to counter with a starting lineup of Dejounte Murray, Lonnie Walker, Devin Vassell, Keldon Johnson and Jacob Poetl.
