The Pelicans are hopeful that Elfrid Payton (ankle) can play in one of their two home games this week: Wednesday against the Bulls or Saturday against the Suns.
Earlier today Payton said that he's making progress and aiming to return within a week, so this lines up. The Pels have moved Jrue Holiday over to point guard lately, though Tim Frazier did start the first few games he was out. Wesley Johnson drew the start in New Orleans' last game. It doesn't sound like Payton will be out much longer and owners can tentatively plan on having him available next week.
