  • Zion Williamson
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Zion Williamson was added to the injury report with a right toe sprain ahead of Thursday's matchup vs. the Bulls.

    Williamson is in jeopardy of missing his first game since his return to the court after he was sidelined for the first three months with a right knee injury. The good news is that the injury doesn't appear to be a re-aggravation of any kind. Derrick Favors and Jaxson Hayes will be in line for more opportunity if Zion sits out on Thursday.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors double-doubled on Wednesday night, ending with 11 points, 10 rebounds and a single steal.

    Favors was able to make an impact in the game despite Zion Williamson entering the fray. The biggest loser here is Jaxson Hayes who saw 16 minutes and only put up nine points and three rebounds with a block.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (lower back soreness) is available on Wednesday vs. the Spurs.

    Okafor is returning from injury on Wednesday along with teammates Derrick Favors and Zion Williamson. The Pelicans' front court just got crowded and Jaxson Hayes, Nicolo Melli and Okafor will struggle to have standard-league value with everyone healthy. Hayes is a luxury stash and the other two players can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors will return and start on Wednesday after missing one game with lower back soreness.

    Favors has been producing mid-round value while he's on the court. His injuries have been the only thing holding him back. Favors will likely take a slight hit with Zion Williamson returning on Wednesday, but he should continue to start on keep standard-league value. His return combined with Zion returning is a big blow to Jaxson Hayes' value and Hayes moves to being a luxury stash only in standard-leagues.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) is listed as probable for Wednesday's game.

    Favors and teammate Jahlil Okafor have both been upgraded to probable. This news should push Jaxson Hayes and Nicolo Melli back to lesser roles.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) will be a game-time decision ahead of Wednesday's game.

    Jaxson Hayes should see more minutes if Favors doesn't play. Favors can strung together two straight games with at least 21 points and 11 rebounds, so the Pelicans are hoping he'll be available.

  • Jaxson Hayes
    PF-C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jaxson Hayes started for Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) on Monday but was quiet in his 19 minutes on the floor, chipping in just five points, six rebounds and one block in a winning effort over the Grizzlies.

    Hayes has been up and down all season, but should see better days as long as Favors remains sidelined. He's worth an add for a boost in boards and blocks.

  • Jahlil Okafor
    C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jahlil Okafor (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Derrick Favors has also been ruled out, making Jaxson Hayes a valuable short-term play. Okafor has now missed a week of action, so this seems to be a nagging issue for him.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) will not play on Monday.

    Favors is coming off two strong games but is unable to play. Jaxson Hayes will fill in for the big man. He's a solid play in daily leagues considering that Jahlil Okafor is also out.

  • Derrick Favors
    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (lower back soreness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Monday.

    Favors returned to the lineup after battling a hamstring strain to produce 22 points and 11 rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Clippers. If Favors sits this one out, Jaxson Hayes and Jahlil Okafor (questionable) would see extra minutes.

  • Jaxson Hayes
    PF-C, New Orleans Pelicans

    Jaxson Hayes handed out a career-high four assists to go along with 14 points, five rebounds and one block in only 15 minutes in Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    Hayes finished the game 3-of-3 from the field and 8-of-12 from the free-throw line, in what was an extremely productive per-minute game against a good defense. As nice as this production was, as long as Derrick Favors is healthy and Hayes is seeing minutes in the teens, he can be left on the waiver wire.

    PF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Derrick Favors (right hamstring strain) has been officially ruled in for Thursday’s tilt vs. the Jazz.

    The return of Favors will likely make Jaxson Hayes and Jahlil Okafor a drop in standard leagues. However, it wouldn’t be foolish to hold onto Hayes for the next couple games to see how the situation develops.

    Derrick Favors (right hamstring strain) has been upgraded to probable for Thursday's matchup vs. the Jazz.

    If Favors does return to action on Thursday, Jahlil Okafor and Jaxson Hayes will see their values diminish dramatically. It is safe to drop either for someone who has a clearer path to opportunity down the stretch.

  • Brandon Ingram
    SF, New Orleans Pelicans

    Brandon Ingram (right knee soreness) is questionable to play on Thursday.

    Ingram and Derrick Favors are "day-to-day" according to Alvin Gentry. Jaxson Hayes will have some appeal if they cannot play. Ingram has scored 25.1 points per game while shooting 40.7 percent from behind the arc.

    Derrick Favors (right hamstring strain) will miss Monday's game.

    After being listed as questionable, the Pelicans will hold Favors out of action. Jaxson Hayes is someone to target in DFS leagues.
