Nickeil Alexander-Walker

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lonzo Ball is questionable to play on Tuesday due to a right adductor strain.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker has thrived in Ball's absence and is an excellent play if he continues to miss time. However, Ball seems to be getting closer to a return.

  • Nickeil Alexander-Walker
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker put up 19 points on 7-of-18 shooting with five rebounds and four assists in a win over the Warriors on Sunday.

    Alexander-Walker played 35 minutes and shined on the offensive end of the floor in this one. He knocked down five triples and showed that he is not afraid to shoot the ball. He is worth streaming when he is in line for big minutes due to injuries like he was tonight.

  • Frank Jackson
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    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.

    Nickeil Alexander-Walker shined on Saturday scoring 27 points (10-of-18 from the floor) with four rebounds, three assists and six threes (6-of-9 from deep) in 30 minutes.

    Alexander-Walker stepped up with Frank Jackson (neck) going down early and not returning. NAW has intriguing upside but his inconsistent minutes keep him out of consideration in most leagues.

  • Frank Jackson
    PG, New Orleans Pelicans

    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.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    J.J. Redick (left great toe sprain) is out for Saturday's game against the Heat.

    Redick has been hot over the last three games with 21.7 points and 5.0 triples as the Pelicans are dealing with a plethora of injuries but has otherwise been a late-round value in standard leagues. With Josh Hart already ruled out and Lonzo Ball questionable, E'Twaun Moore should draw another start while it may be the Nickeil Alexander-Walker show if he can get his shot to fall.

    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.

  • JJ Redick
    SG, New Orleans Pelicans

    JJ Redick is questionable to face the Raptors on Friday as he is dealing with a left knee bruise.

    Redick started off the season sluggish for his new team but has scored in double figures in his last two games while hitting four and three trifectas respectively. Redick has sustained value within the top-100 in the last two seasons and there is no reason why he wouldn't be able to get close to that as the season rolls along. However, if he is unable to play on Friday, rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker might get more opportunity while E'Twaun Moore might also see a bump in minutes.

    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.
