Julius Randle is on the injury report with a back strain and left hip contusion and is doubtful to play on Friday.
The Pelicans have been taking it easy on Randle in practice since he left Monday's game with a hard fall and will continue to do so. Randle was hoping to play on Friday but there's no need to push him. He's fighting for the starting power forward spot with Nikola Mirotic, who is slated to return to action on Friday. We have yet to see them active for the same game so that will be something to watch for when both return to full health.
