Nikola Mirotic (hip flexor) has been ruled out of Saturday's game with the Rockets.
Perhaps this hip injury has been the cause of Mirotic's shooting slump. Either way, the Pelicans will need him at full strength for their mad dash to the finish line. He's been a bit of a letdown for fantasy owners over the past few weeks following a tremendous start to his Pelicans career but should still finish the season with top-50 value. There's not much choice but to stick him on benches and hope for a turnaround now, and hopefully the day off will do him some good. Cheick Diallo and Darius Miller will see extra time tonight, with Diallo the guy for boards and blocks and Miller the choice for threes.
