Coach Alvin Gentry “anticipates” Elfrid Payton (ankle) will play on Friday despite his official questionable label.
Payton has missed the last nine games with the ankle sprain but it’s looking like he might be ready to test it tonight. Nobody off the New Orleans bench has really stepped it up though Jrue Holiday might take a slight hit when Elf gets back on the court. As for Payton, he’s just barely in standard-league territory as he has very little value outside of assists and a few steals.
