    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has a hairline fracture in his right wrist and will be out indefinitely.

    NAW has not been a prominent part of the Pelicans' rotation to make this news swing his value pointer in either direction. He's just a dynasty stash at this point.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker did not practice on Saturday as he had a cast on his wrist.

    The report said that Alexander-Walker got injured in the G League but no specifics were given. After going off in the preseason and summer league, he has underwhelmed in regular season and has been out of the rotation for several weeks now so there are no fantasy implications here but he should be considered questionable for now.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been assigned to the Erie Bayhawks of the G League on Wednesday.

    Alexander-Walker hasn't been in the rotation for the Pelicans of late, so he's an afterthought in fantasy circles.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Thursday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Alexander-Walker has only averaged 12.7 minutes per game so far this season across 39 contests. He doesn't provide enough to be relevant in fantasy circles this season but is a name to watch as he continues to work on his craft.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker (illness) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Bucks.

    Alexander-Walker isn't part of the rotation, while the team is mostly healthy, so this won't have an impact on the rotation. NAW is an interesting name to watch should the Pelicans choose to become sellers at the deadline.

  • Jrue Holiday

    Jrue Holiday (left elbow tricep strain) will not take the floor against the Knicks on Friday.

    Josh Hart, J.J. Redick and Lonzo Ball will all see additional minutes with Holiday ruled out for the third consecutive time. Nickeil Alexander-Walker could also see additional minutes off the bench but is not worth a look in fantasy leagues at this time.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball is a game-time decision for Wednesday's contest vs. the Wolves as he nurses a bruised right hip.

    If Ball ends up missing this contest, there will be more opportunity for Josh Hart, Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Nicolò Melli. Hart has the best opportunity to be valuable for the rest of the season in standard leagues as he has produced top 110/98 per-game value in 8/9-cat leagues.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    JJ Redick (left groin soreness) will take the floor on Wednesday against the Wolves.

    Redick will return on Wednesday after a one-game absence. Josh Hart will see his minutes decrease from the 40-minute mark he saw in the last game while Nicolò Melli and Nickeil Alexander-Walker could see their minutes evaporate.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left groin soreness) is probable for Wednesday's game.

    Redick has made 45.7 percent of his triples this season. Even as trade rumors swirl, he has remained a consistent scorer. Nickeil Alexander-Walker played 23 minutes when Redick missed Tuesday's game, but may be in line for less time on Wednesday.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left groin soreness) will not play on Tuesday.

    Redick has averaged 16.1 points and made 45.7 percent of his 3-pointers so far. Nickeil Alexander-Walker should see some more time on the court while he is out.

  • Lonzo Ball
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (illness) is uncertain to play against the Lakers on Wednesday after being sent home from practice with a stomach bug on Tuesday.

    We'd have to assume Ball will do whatever he can do try to play against his former team, but he'll have to get over the illness. If Ball can't play, Josh Hart and Nickeil Alexander-Walker would pick up extra minutes.

    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Lonzo Ball (right adductor strain) will be active off the bench against the Suns on Thursday.

    Ball has missed the last six games with this injury so he will naturally be limited in his first game back. This will likely mute the excitement for Nickeil Alexander-Walker going forward if Ball can get back on the 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
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    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.
