Julius Randle (right ankle sprain) will not play on Thursday night.
Randle wasn't on the team's earlier injury report so perhaps he got hurt during pregame activity. The Pelicans will be without Randle, Anthony Davis and Nikola Mirotic tonight, so it's going to be a slog against the streaking Thunder. Jrue Holiday is going to have monstrous usage while Elfrid Payton should also pick up the slack. Fantasy owners of either should just hope that the game stays close. Up front it'll be Jahlil Okafor, Darius Miller and Solmon Hill doing the heavy lifting, with Cheick Diallo and Wesley Johnson potentially re-entering the rotation. There's only stream appeal here outside of Holiday and Payton, but with so many minutes now wide open in New Orleans it wouldn't take much to make a compelling deep-league case for anyone listed here.
