Jameer Nelson (right calf strain) and Will Barton (left foot soreness) will not play against the Pelicans on Friday.
Nelson will miss his third game in the last four and Barton will miss his fifth straight. Expect Jamal Murray and Gary Harris to continue getting big minutes and Emmanuel Mudiay to get his share as well. Mudiay played 30.5 minutes with 16.0 points and 8.0 assists in the two games Jameer Nelson missed earlier this week but is still a risky play. Harris has played 37.1 minutes in the four games that Barton missed and should be locked into all lineups.
