Nikola Mirotic will start at PF in Wednesday's opener against the Rockets.
Mirotic will join Elfrid Payton, Jrue Holiday, E'Twaun Moore and Anthony Davis on the starting lineup. Julius Randle owners need not worry because he will still split time with Mirotic at PF and can play backup center as well so it's possible he actually plays more minutes than Mirotic anyway. The Pelicans' pace of play will allow for both players to thrive so start them both with confidence.
