• Elfrid Payton
    G, New Orleans Pelicans

    According to Marc J. Spears, Elfrid Payton (ankle) could return to action vs. the Blazers on Thursday.

    Payton has missed the last couple of games with a sprained ankle. Assuming the injury is behind him, he should resume his duty of running the show in the Pelicans' backcourt. He's averaging 6.4 assists per game for the season.
