Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Racks up two steals
Lewis recorded five points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and two steals across 10 minutes during Wednesday's 110-106 victory over the Thunder.
Lewis tallied 11 points during Monday's blowout loss to the Warriors, his first double-digit scoring total of the season. While he was unable to replicate that production Wednesday, he logged his first two steals of the year. The 22-year-old hasn't had a very fantasy-relevant role early in the 2023-24 campaign, averaging just 4.5 points in 11.8 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Up-and-down season
Lewis concluded his third season averaging 4.6 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.9 assists in 9.4 minutes per game across 25 appearances.
Lewis started the season in the G League as he made his way back from a knee injury that ended his second season, and he bounced between the G League and New Orleans' main roster throughout the season. The third-year pro had a solid stretch of games in February and March, where he was featured in 18 out of 25 games before falling out of the rotation once again to close the season. Despite flashing some upside, Lewis remains on the fringe of the rotation, and it's hard to see him making his way into a significant role without major changes to the roster.... See More ...

Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Garbage time run Tuesday
Lewis finished Tuesday's 121-103 loss to Sacramento with two points (2-2 FT) over three minutes.
Lewis played three minutes of garbage time in the loss, continuing what has been yet another frustrating fantasy season. Despite some very clear potential, Lewis remains on the fringe of the rotation. He has played more than 10 minutes on only nine occasions this season, utilized sporadically at best. Barring a change in scenery, it is hard to see him getting to the point where he can even be considered in fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Looks good in limited run
Lewis totaled eight points (3-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt), one rebound and one assist over 10 minutes during Friday's 118-107 loss to the Cavaliers.
Lewis is at the edge of the rotation but has been making the most of his limited minutes lately. However, the arrival of Josh Richardson further complicates things in the backcourt, so Lewis' path to minutes still isn't great.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Provides ample support from bench
Lewis amassed 15 points (7-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt), six rebounds, three assists and one block across 27 minutes during Sunday's 135-110 loss to the Bucks.
With CJ McCollum (thumb) and Brandon Ingram (toe) sidelined, Lewis was ushered back into the rotation for one of the few times all season and made the most of his opportunity. Though the 21-year-old is healthy again after having most of his 2021-22 wiped out by a torn ACL, Lewis may find a regular role off the New Orleans bench hard to come by if both McCollum and Ingram are back in action for Tuesday's game in Denver....

Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Recalled by Pelicans
Lewis was recalled by the Pelicans from the team's G League affiliate Friday.
Lewis has accumulated 15.5 points, 3.4 assists and 2.3 rebounds over 26.5 minutes per game in his 11 appearances with the Squadron, but he'll be back with the Pelicans and available to provide depth in the backcourt Saturday. That said, most of New Orleans' backcourt options are healthy, so he may not see much action.... See More ... See Less

Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Scores team-high 19 points
Lewis notched 19 points (7-16 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, an assist and a steal across 31 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Gold.
Lewis made his NBA debut with the Pelicans a few days ago, but he's going to see most of his time in the G League, where he's already showing glimpses of his quality. He's made just nine appearances for Birmingham, but he's averaging 16.1 points per game in that span.... See More ... See Less

Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Back to G League
The Pelicans assigned Lewis to the G League's Birmingham Squadron on Monday, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Lewis made his NBA season debut Dec. 13, totaling four points and one rebound in six minutes during a loss to the Jazz, but he didn't appear in either of the Pelicans' past two contests.

Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Makes 2022-23 NBA debut
Lewis played six minutes off the bench Tuesday in the Pelicans' 121-100 loss to the Jazz, finishing with four points (1-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one rebound.
After tearing his ACL and suffering a Grade 2 MCL sprain to his right knee just over a year ago, Lewis was finally able to make his return to action for the Pelicans. The third-year guard has been healthy for quite some time, as he made seven appearances at the G League level with the Birmingham Squadron before rejoining the Pelicans. Even with Brandon Ingram (toe) out for at least the next week, the Pelicans may not have a rotation spot available for Lewis, who could head back to the G League in the near future for more consistent playing time....

Pelicans' Kira Lewis: Scores 19 in 22 minutes
Lewis scored 19 points (7-17 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) while adding three rebounds and an assist across 22 minutes in Saturday's loss to Austin.
Lewis was rehabbing from a knee injury at the start of the season and has been playing for the Squadron in an effort to regain his conditioning. While that is the primary goal, Lewis' numbers will ultimately decide whether he's ready to move into the NBA or not. Three games is a small sample size, and the lack of consistency hasn't helped, as he's posted at least 18 points in two games but had a four-point dud sandwiched in between.... See More ... See Less
