Norris Cole (back) is listed as questionable for Friday’s game against the Grizzlies.
Cole’s timing for this back injury is regrettable but owners should be rooting for him to get right for the stretch run. Toney Douglas will have a pretty predictable shot at late-round value if Cole cannot go, but he needs even more minutes and touches than Cole does to get up to that level. Given that Cole is one of four competent offensive players for the Pelicans, he will need to be held going forward.
