    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 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 (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 expected to be a gametime decision on Sunday versus the Warriors.

    The Pelicans will be extremely thin and if Jackson sits Nickeil Alexander-Walker will be in line more some extended run.

    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.

    Frank Jackson was red-hot off the bench on Thursday, scoring 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting with five boards, two assists and four triples in only 23 minutes of action.

    Jackson was the beneficiary of the Pelicans not having enough healthy bodies tonight and his line was nice because of the strong shooting. He drilled open triples, which is his job, but outside of that there isn't much to love about his fantasy prospects.

    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) is listed out against the Hornets on Saturday.

    Ball played 23 minutes in Friday's game with the injury so maybe this is just a rest day on back-to-back instead of a re-aggravation. This will be his first missed game of the season for the 1-7 Pelicans as he has put up top-80 value with 11.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 6.1 assists, 2.3 triples and 1.6 steals. His overall value would be higher if it wasn't for his shooting percentages, per usual. Josh Hart and Frank Jackson should see increased run on Saturday.

    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker contributed 13 points (4-for-8 shooting), four assists, three 3-pointers and two rebounds across 16 minutes off the bench on Friday.

    NAW rode a hot three-point shooting night to a serviceable line, but he isn't getting enough minutes to consistently produce. Same can be said for Frank Jackson, who had 13 points, two rebounds, two 3-pointers, one assist and a steal.

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) is probable to play on Friday against the Raptors.

    Ball had to leave Monday's game in the fourth quarter due to cramps which most likely is the reason that he has popped up on the injury report. The probable tag is encouraging in regards to his chances to play. If he can't go for some reason, expect Frank Jackson and Nickeil Alexander-Walker to take over the point guard responsibilities alongside veteran Jrue Holiday.
