Nikola Mirotic (right ankle) has been ruled out ahead of Saturday's game.
The Pelicans haven't said much about Mirotic aside from a vague "nearing a return" update on Monday. He's been great whenever he's been on the floor this season and owners have had to just sit tight and wait this one out. Julius Randle is likely to hold onto the starting power forward job, at least for the foreseeable future, even after Mirotic returns. Both will be must-start options but the ceilings and floors will shift somewhat.
