    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.

  • Lonzo Ball
    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.

  • Nickeil Alexander-Walker
    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
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    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.

    Frank Jackson went off against the Nuggets on Thursday with 21 points on 8-of-10 shooting with three rebounds, a steal and four 3-pointers.

    Jackson only missed two of his field goals tonight and was the definition of the hot hand. With Jrue Holiday (knee) and Lonzo Ball healthy there's just not enough room for us to believe in Jackson staying this hot.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday (left knee sprain) is probable to face the Nuggets on Thursday.

    Holiday missed Monday's game against the Warriors but has a good chance of returning to the starting lineup on Thursday. With Holiday's return, expect either Josh Hart of JJ Redick to come off the bench while Frank Jackson will lose a good portion of his minutes. Hart came off the bench in the games in which Holiday was healthy, but has impressed early in the season. Redick, on the other hand, has struggled through the first four games. Holiday should be locked and loaded in your season-long lineup if he plays.

    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Coach Alvin Gentry said that Jrue Holiday (left knee sprain) practiced on Tuesday and is a game-time decision for Thursday's tilt with the Nuggets.

    The Pelicans can sure use Holiday back in the lineup as they sit without a win after their first four games. Holiday's return would impact the minutes of Josh Hart, Frank Jackson and Nickeil Alexander-Walker. Hart would go back to being the first guard off the bench.

  • Jrue Holiday
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jrue Holiday, who is dealing with a left knee sprain, will miss Monday's game with the Warriors.

    Holiday had already been listed as questionable. It's a big loss for the Pelicans, but good news for Josh Hart's fantasy owners. Frank Jackson and Nickeil Alexander-Walker could also benefit.

    Frank Jackson will not play vs. the Wizards in Summer League action on Saturday.

    Jackson exploded for 30 points in Friday's suspended game (earthquake) and at this point the Pelicans' staff already know what he brings to the table. Tonight we should get a better glimpse of some of their less highlighted talent.
