Doc Rivers said that he does not expect J.J. Redick (hamstring) or Chris Paul (hamstring) to play in Wednesday’s game against the Pelicans.
They’re both game-time decisions, nonetheless, and we’re wondering if the middle of next week’s four-game set is a natural spot to deploy them with a two-week slate after that to smooth things out. Either way, Raymond Felton and Jamal Crawford are must-start players even on a busy night tonight and Austin Rivers is worth a look. Marreese Speights should also have a late-round night. DeAndre Jordan was spotted with his left arm bandaged at shootaround but he said he’s playing and owners can plan for that unless the news changes, of course.
