Julius Randle (sprained right ankle) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Rockets.
With news that Randle, who can opt out of his contract and hit free agency this summer, is on the trade block, the Pelicans have little reason to risk injury. New Orleans is now down three of its top four players, so while Jrue Holiday is going to get all the usage he can handle we'll see more minutes for Darius Miller, Solomon Hill and maybe Cheick Diallo. Outside of Holiday, Elfrid Payton and Jahlil Okafor, there's only deep-league appeal from the Pelicans.
