    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Frank Jackson chipped in 12 points and three 3-pointers to lead the Pelicans bench in production on Wednesday.

    It was Jackson, not Josh Hart (two points, four rebounds, two assists in 13 minutes) or E'Twaun Moore (four points, one steal, one block in 16 minutes) who absorbed JJ Redick's vacated minutes tonight. Hart's still the best bet for production but it's not enough of a slam dunk to make him an obvious pickup while Redick is out.

  • Nicolo Melli
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nicolo Melli had a career-high nine rebounds in addition to 10 points on 4-of-10 shooting, three assists, one block and two 3-pointers on Tuesday in a win over the Blazers.

    Melli benefitted from Brandon Ingram (right ankle sprain) sitting out this game. However, Melli's value has been trending up lately anyway, as he's hit at least two triples in six out of the last seven games and his minutes have been on the rise. Frank Jackson also made the most of his increased minutes tonight, putting up 13 points, two boards, five dimes and three triples in 23 minutes.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday will miss Thursday's game against the Jazz as he continues to deal with a left elbow tricep strain.

    Holiday will miss his sixth consecutive contest on Thursday. With this news, expect Lonzo Ball to play as many minutes as he can handle while Frank Jackson should see more time off the bench. Jrue has been providing 3rd/4th round per-game value on the season and could see an increase in his value as the team gets back to full strength. This could be an interesting time to target Holiday as a potential buy-low candidate due to this recent ailment.

    Frank Jackson played 33 minutes off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Celtics, scoring 22 points to go along with two assists and a block.

    After averaging just four minutes per game in the month of January, Jackson took advantage of an early blowout and injuries to the Pelicans' backcourt, playing 33 minutes in this game. He made half of his shots (9-of-18) but missed his only two FTs. Nevertheless, even with the injuries, Jackson is not worth owning in standard leagues until he can establish a permanent role off the bench.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball is questionable for Wednesday's game due to illness.

    Frank Jackson would be in line for more minutes if Ball is unavailable. He has already been battling injuries this year, and missing another game would be a frustrating development.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball is questionable for Thursday's game vs. the Suns due to a right adductor strain.

    If Ball is ruled out, look for Frank Jackson and Nickeil Alexander-Walker to see a boost in minutes off the bench. The starters will also be leaned on more heavily if Ball is unable to suit up.

    Frank Jackson (left neck contusion) returned after missing one game to score nine points (2-of-4 FGs, 3-of-4 FTs), grab two boards and hit two treys in 19 minutes vs. the Blazers on Tuesday.

    Jackson isn't worth rostering in standard leagues, but he is getting regular rotation minutes while the Pelicans are missing quite a few players. He's a deep-league option capable of having a big game here and there. Nickeil Alexander-Walker cooled off in this one with just 3 points, four rebounds, an assist and a three while missing his other five shots in 16 minutes.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) is being listed as out for Tuesday's matchup with the Blazers.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been red-hot the last two games and stands to benefit, along with a returning Frank Jackson.

    Frank Jackson (left neck contusion) is being listed as available to play against the blazers on Tuesday.

    Jackson should get a nice chunk of time with so many injuries in the Pelicans back court rotation. He is a punt option in DFS.

    Frank Jackson has a left neck contusion and is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Jackson was injured on Saturday and was unable to suit up on Sunday. E'Twaun Moore played 40 minutes on Saturday and should be in line for plenty of playing time if Jackson remains out.

    Frank Jackson (neck contusion) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Warriors.

    J.J. Redick is expected to play, but the Pelicans will still be extremely thin. Nikeil Alexander-Walker and E'Twuan Moore see extended run and become viable streaming and DFS options.

    Frank Jackson (neck contusion) is being listed as questionable for Sunday's game versus the Warriors.

    Jackson left last night's game after only playing five minutes. Jackson would have more than likely been ruled out already if the Pelicans weren't desperate for healthy players. Jackson was primed for a bigger load and if he sits out we may see Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Nicolo Melli take on meaningful minutes again.

    Frank Jackson suffered a neck injury and did not return to the game on Saturday after playing five minutes.

    Jackson started and missed all three of his shots before leaving the game early. Nickeil Alexander-Walker stepped up and scored 27 points in 30 minutes on Saturday. Alexander-Walker and E'Twaun Moore benefit the most if Jackson misses time. Nicolo Melli should also see more minutes.

    Frank Jackson went to the locker room on Saturday against the Heat.

    Jackson took a hit from a moving screen and was holding his neck. If he is unable to return, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Nicolo Melli and E'Twaun Moore will get more playing time.
