Tyreke Evans (rest) will not play and both Solomon Hill (personal) and Tim Frazier (wrist) showed up as questionable for Friday’s game against the Rockets.
Evans will be bench material for the next week or so but we like him as a must-own player in 8-cat leagues for his upside. Frazier showing up could be more of New Orleans’ weirdness on the injury reporting, because he’s supposed to be out for about 6-9 days. The Pelicans’ remaining rotation players could all have late-round floors in a high scoring game.
Update: Frazier is playing. He can be used as a better than coin flip’s chance at late-round value.
Tim Frazier will play tonight, per Gentry

Solomon Hill not with team because his wife is in labor, Alvin Gentry tells reporters.
