How will New Orleans fit a lot of players into limited minutes?

Alvin Gentry said that Brandon Ingram (right knee soreness) is "day-to-day" after his MRI came back clean on Tuesday.
This is excellent news for the Pelicans and Ingram's fantasy owners after the injury came out of nowhere. The Pelicans may err on the side of caution with their budding star wing, but it doesn't seem like he'll be out too long, if at all. Kenrich Williams would benefit with additional minutes should Ingram miss games.

Kenrich Williams scored eight points on 3-of-8 shooting to go with 11 rebounds, two assists and two triples on Monday against the Rockets.
Williams put up some big rebounding numbers again with the Pelicans ailing, but Brandon Ingram should return soon and kill any value Williams has.

Kenrich Williams started on Saturday and scored 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting while adding five rebounds, three assists, three 3-pointers and two steals in 28 minutes.
Williams contributed across the board on Saturday and has shown ability to contribute in multiple categories when given the minutes. Williams is a deep-league player for now and is someone to stream when he is starting.

Kenrich Williams is being listed as the starting power forward for Sunday's game versus the Hornets.
Williams makes for a solid streaming and DFS option for tonight's set of games. J.J. Redick will join Williams in the starting lineup in place for Lonzo Ball.

Brandon Ingram is a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Nets after suffering a head injury on Saturday.
Ingram was not diagnosed with a concussion, but the Pelicans will wait to see how he looks in warmups. Ingram has taken advantage of the move to New Orleans so far and has even made 50 percent of his 3-pointers in the early going. While the coaching staff thinks Ingram can play, Kenrich Williams should receive more minutes if Ingram is unavailable.

Kenrich Williams thrived in a bit of garbage time on Monday, allowing him to produce 16 points on 6-of-10 shooting with six rebounds, three steals, three 3s, two assists and one block.
Williams, as mentioned, was the beneficiary of garbage time in the fourth quarter. He's more of a deep-league guy right now.

In only 12 minutes off the bench, Nickeil Alexander-Walker launched 10 shots, including seven 3-pointers, but he provided just three points, four rebounds, two assists, two steals and one triple on Tuesday vs. the Raptors.
Alexander-Walker looks like he'll be the second unit's lead scorer, and his shot will be falling again soon, no doubt. It may be a while before he gets enough minutes to start on a regular basis, but there's certainly hope that he gets to that point in short order. Kenrich Williams was also quite involved off the bench tonight with three points, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks in 18 minutes.

Kenrich Williams logged a team-high 30 minutes for the Pelicans on Sunday, scoring 10 points (5-of-14 shooting) with 11 rebounds, two dimes, three steals and one blocked shot.
Williams has played well in Summer League. His high-energy presence on the floor and his defensive tenacity will keep his spot in the rotation locked up. His outlook took a bit of a hit given the talent that the Pelicans added over the summer, but he should still be a good source of rebounds, steals and some 3s in deep leagues.

Kenrich "Kenny Hustle" Williams was a force on the glass for the Pelicans on Monday, grabbing 13 boards in 21 minutes.
He added eight points, three assists, one 3-pointer and two steals to the box score on the night. Williams emerged as a deep-league pickup late last season and emerged as an intriguing source of rebounds, threes and steals. Unfortunately for him (and his outlook), the Pelicans stockpiled a bunch of young talent for 2019-20. He'll need to earn his minutes, but given his hustle mentality, that shouldn't be too monumental a task.

Kenrich Williams swiped five steals to go with eight points, seven rebounds, six assists and two threes in Tuesday's finale.
Williams had a late-blooming rookie campaign. He was just outside the top-200 in per-game value for the season. However, once AD started sitting, Williams provided pretty consistent late-round value. His best category for the season, like tonight, was steals, where he settled in around 1.6 per game (while also hitting 1.4 threes). Over that relevant stretch though, Williams only averaged about seven points, six rebounds and under three assists despite getting about 30 minutes per game. He's already 24, so don't expect any meteoric rise even on a Pelicans team looking to go young next season.

Stanley Johnson (left ankle contusion) will miss Friday’s game vs. the Suns.
There aren’t many healthy bodies left in New Orleans and with Johnson missing Friday’s game, it’ll be Kenrich Williams, Ian Clark and Dairis Bertans left to compete for usage.

Darius Miller will miss 1-2 weeks of action with a Grade 1 left adductor strain.
That leaves Kenrich Williams in the starting lineup as the Pelicans’ top 3-and-D option.

Kenrich Williams (laceration above eye) didn't need stitches and has returned to the court against the Kings on Thursday.
