Cheick Diallo played 31 minutes for the injury-riddled Pelicans on Saturday, scoring 19 points and grabbing 10 rebounds.
Who? Diallo was promoted from the D-League on Wednesday and came out of nowhere to record a double-double in significant minutes off the bench. Before we get too excited about the rookie forward, it should be pointed out that the Pelicans were playing a lot of garbage minutes in this blowout, and Anthony Davis was out for rest. Keep an eye on the next game, but don’t run to the waiver wire just yet.
