Norris Cole started in the Pelicans’ 115-99 win over the Pistons on Thursday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-11 shooting with eight rebounds and seven assists over 31 minutes.
This will be the Norris Cole experience in a high usage role. He did not have any money counting stats (3PTs, STLs, BLKs) and those aren’t his strong point. But he can put up the popcorn stats and the carnage in New Orleans is why we had him in the top-175 for the full season even with the high ankle injury. He should be owned in standard formats at least while Eric Gordon is out for the next 4-6 weeks with his broken finger.
