Emeka Okafor is questionable for Sunday’s game against the Mavs because of a right ankle sprain.
Okafor was listed as probable yesterday, so this isn’t a great sign. While he’s grabbed hold of the starting center role, he doesn’t play a ton and is only worth using in deep leagues if you need some blocks and rebounds. If he were to sit, it seems likely that the Pelicans would reinsert Nikola Mirotic into the starting five. He was starting at power forward before the Pelicans plugged Okafor in against Detroit and then decided to keep rolling with it. He’d get a slight value bump but it’s not like you were sticking him on your bench anyway.
