Brandon Ingram will miss a second consecutive contest when the New Orleans Pelicans battle the Grizzlies in Memphis. After reaggravating his right hamstring a few games ago, this will mark his 12th contest on the sidelines in the last 17 games due to the same injury.

Devonte’ Graham will draw the start in Ingram’s place.

Ja Morant, who’s missed nine straight games due to a sore right knee, is back in the lineup for the Grizzlies. Memphis won seven consecutive games before dropping the last two without their superstar.
