Larry Nance Jr., who had missed the previous four games with neck spasms/left shoulder soreness, is returning to active duty for Willie Green.
“I feel good,” Nance said after the shootaround. “When it rains, it pours. I was beat up there for a good little bit, but I feel better.”
Nance also indicated this morning that he would go through his pregame workout before making a determination on his availability.
Everything apparently checked out in the last hour because the Pelicans announced he’ll be in uniform against a very hot Nets team.
Willy Hernangomez, who suffered a left ankle sprain in the win over the Rockets, is available too.
Zion Williamson (right hamstring strain) and Brandon Ingram (left great toe contusion) are out.
