Elfrid Payton (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Nuggets.
Payton was also forced to sit out on Tuesday. It's his second ankle injury of the season and leaves the Pelicans incredibly shorthanded in the backcourt. Frank Jackson started in his place last night (10 points, seven boards in 23 minutes) while Kenrich Williams was the other winner among the guards, as he got loose for a career-high 16 rebounds. Tim Frazier also rejoined the rotation and put up 10-4-10 in only 20 minutes off the bench. They're all options again tonight with the Pelicans needing all the help they can get.
