Top Pelicans News

  • Pelicans' Willy Hernangomez: Sets season high in scoring

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Shooting woes continue in win

    McCollum notched seven points (3-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three rebounds and six assists over 34 minutes during Sunday's 121-106 victory over the Nuggets.

    McCollum struggled from the field for a second consecutive game, finishing with a single-digit scoring total for only the fifth time this season. The veteran missed four games at the end of November due to COVID-19 protocols and looks like he'll need a bit of a ramp-up period before he's back up to speed. Over the last two games, McCollum is a combined 5-of-22 from the field.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Another 20-point performance

    Williamson posted 25 points (9-17 FG, 7-11 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal over 36 minutes during Sunday's 121-106 win over the Nuggets.

    Williamson posted his fourth straight 20-point performance, finishing second on the team in scoring and shots made. Williamson has scored 20 or more points in 13 games this season, including in seven of the last 10 contests.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Enjoys career game off bench

    Alvarado logged a career-high 38 points (12-19 FG, 8-11 3Pt, 6-7 FT) to go with three rebounds, two assists and one steal across 27 minutes during Sunday's 121-106 victory over the Nuggets.

    Fresh off tying his season high in scoring with 15 points as he moved back to the bench in CJ McCollum's return to the lineup during Friday's win over the Spurs, Alvarado took his game to a previously unforeseen level Sunday. Though much of his offense came on unsustainably hot shooting from deep, Alvarado's breakout performance might be enough to make him worth at least a cursory look in leagues where he's available on the waiver wire. While logging 20-plus minutes in each of the Pelicans' last six games, Alvarado is averaging 14.0 points, 4.5 assists, 2.7 rebounds, 2.7 triples and 1.8 steals while shooting 45.2 percent from the field and 92.3 percent from the charity stripe.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Scores season high off bench

    Alvarado provided 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, five assists and two steals in 24 minutes during Friday's 117-99 win over the Spurs.

    Alvarado provided a scoring punch off the bench for the Pelicans on Friday. Alvarado also dished out five dimes without turning the ball over. The second-year guard is averaging 8.7 points, 3.4 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals in 20.9 minutes across 22 games this season.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Still sidelined Sunday

    Ingram (toe) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Nuggets, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Ingram will miss his fourth straight game Sunday after missing Saturday's practice. Ingram will have plenty of time to rest his toe injury for Wednesday's game against the Pistons. Trey Murphy has started all three games in the star forward's absence.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Out Sunday

    Jones (ankle) is out Sunday against the Nuggets, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Jones and Brandon Ingram (toe) remain sidelined Sunday, so Trey Murphy and Dyson Daniels figure to start again. Jones' next chance to play arrives Wednesday against the Pistons.

  • Pelicans' Jonas Valanciunas: Feasts in win

    Valanciunas contributed 21 points (8-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one block across 26 minutes during Friday's 117-99 win over the Spurs.

    Valanciunas was a matchup nightmare for San Antonio, scoring at ease over the Spurs' undersized lineups. Valanciunas still possesses volatility, but when he's incorporated, the center remains on nightly double-double watch.

  • Pelicans' Zion Williamson: Another dominant performance

    Williamson logged 30 points (9-14 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 12-13 FT), 15 rebounds, eight assists, one block and two steals across 34 minutes during Friday's 117-99 victory over San Antonio.

    Williamson stuffed the box score, flirting with his first-career triple-double while leading an easy victory. The Pelicans are riding a three-game winning streak on the back of excellent performances from Williamson. The 22-year-old is averaging 28.7 points, 11.0 rebounds, 7.0 assists, 2.3 steals and 2.0 blocks per game over that span.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Good volume

    Murphy posted 17 points (6-15 FG, 5-12 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals over 33 minutes during Friday's 117-99 win over the Spurs.

    Murphy continues to play a large role on the shorthanded Pelicans. Murphy is averaging 15.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 10 games as a starter this season. Notably, across his last three contests, Murphy is connecting on 41.9 percent of 10.3 three-point attempts per game.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Struggles in return

    McCollum (conditioning) notched five points (2-11 FG, 1-5 3Pt), four rebounds and four assists over 32 minutes during Friday's 117-99 win over the Spurs.

    After a four-game absence while he was in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols, McCollum looked rusty in his return. Despite reclaiming his typical workload, McCollum produced little to show for it. He's a bounce-back candidate with a high-profile matchup coming up against Denver on Sunday.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Returns to bench

    Alvarado will come off the bench during Friday's matchup against the Spurs.

    CJ McCollum's return to the starting lineup following a four-game absence due to COVID-19 protocols will shift Alvarado back to his usual bench role. Across 15 games as a reserve, Alvarado has averaged 7.9 points, 2.9 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 18.1 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Dyson Daniels: Gets first career start

    Daniels will start Friday's game against the Spurs.

    With Brandon Ingram (toe) and Herbert Jones (ankle) out, Daniels will draw his first career start. Over his past five games, the rookie has averaged 9.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.2 steals in 25.2 minutes, including a 14-point, nine-assist and eight-rebound performance his last time out.

  • Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Good to go

    Marshall (illness) is available for Friday's matchup with the Spurs, Jennifer Hale of Bally Sports New Orleans reports

    No surprise here, as Marshall was considered probable heading into the game. He is battling an illness, but it isn't severe enough to keep him sidelined.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Will play against Spurs

    McCollum (conditioning) will return to the starting lineup Friday against the Spurs, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    McCollum has missed the past four games due to health and safety protocols. McCollum's return to the starting lineup likely means that Jose Alvarado will move back to his usual bench role.
