Top Pelicans News

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Gets hot from deep

    McCollum amassed 23 points (8-15 FG, 6-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and three assists across 38 minutes during Thursday's 107-88 win over the Nuggets.

    McCollum made at least six three-pointers for the seventh time this season en route to his ninth March appearance with at least 20 points. However, the point guard failed to make significant contributions in other categories, limiting his overall value. With Brandon Ingram handling more playmaking duties recently, McCollum may be relegated to a score-first guard over the final weeks of the regular season.

  • Pelicans' Jonas Valanciunas: Double-doubles in win

    Valanciunas totaled 15 points (5-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-5 FT), 12 rebounds, four assists and one block over 25 minutes during Thursday's 107-88 victory over the Nuggets.

    Valanciunas posted his eighth double-double over his past 10 appearances, making Thursday's effort par for the course of late. During the 10-game stretch, he's averaged 15.6 points, 13.6 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.3 blocks while shooting 57.4 percent from the field, and the Pelicans are 7-3 as they aim for a spot outside the Play-In Tournament.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Posts another triple-double

    Ingram closed Thursday's 107-88 win over the Nuggets with 31 points (13-22 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds and 10 assists across 37 minutes.

    After notching his first career triple-double a week ago, Ingram was back at it Thursday and posted another one. Over his past eight appearances, the veteran forward has averaged 29.6 points, 8.3 assists and 6.3 rebounds with 51/48/92 shooting splits and is single-handedly keeping the Pelicans in the playoff picture with Zion Williamson's (hamstring) potential return looming.

  • Pelicans' Herbert Jones: Bounces back in steals column

    Jones recorded 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-5 3Pt), six rebounds, four rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes in Tuesday's 120-109 loss to the Warriors.

    Jones is rostered in fantasy leagues primarily for his contributions in the steals department, and after coming up empty in the category in Monday's blowout win over Portland, he was able to get back on track in the second leg of the back-to-back set. The second-year forward supplemented the steals total with solid production in the rebounds, assists and three-pointers, but he can't be relied upon to produce in all of those areas on a regular basis. He had turned in more modest averages of 3.0 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 0.3 treys in his prior six contests.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Shot goes cold in loss

    McCollum recorded 15 points (6-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt), one rebound and three assists in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 120-109 loss to the Warriors.

    Although McCollum mustered three deep balls, he converted only 35.2 percent of his shots in the loss and was also an ineffective floor general, collecting just three assists. McCollum is typically much more productive, and the subpar performance shouldn't deter fantasy managers from utilizing him, especially as the Pelicans make their playoff push.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Regains stroke in loss

    Murphy produced 21 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 120-109 loss to Golden State.

    After draining 10 threes last Saturday, Murphy suffered a huge regression Monday night, nailing only one deep ball in seven attempts. He was back on track during Tuesday's loss, going 4-of-6 from long range to record his seventh-best scoring total of the season. With Zion Williamson's (hamstring) playoff outlook in doubt, Murphy's role in the starting lineup should remain safe for now.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Paces team with 26 points

    Ingram notched 26 points (9-22 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 7-7 FT), eight rebounds, seven assists and one block across 38 minutes during Tuesday's 120-109 loss to Golden State.

    The Pelicans ran a nine-man rotation, giving Ingram maximum time on the floor in the loss. He played a big part in pushing his team out to a huge lead, scoring 18 points in the first half. Though he continued to produce nicely in the final two quarters and approached a triple-double, Ingram couldn't offset a horrible defensive performance from his team in the second half as the Warriors claimed a comeback win.

  • Pelicans' CJ McCollum: Makes rare impact on defensive end

    McCollum finished with 17 points (7-15 FG, 3-7 3Pt), eight assists, two steals, two blocks and one rebound across 25 minutes in Monday's 124-90 win over Portland.

    McCollum is averaging just 0.9 steals and 0.5 blocks per game on the season, so fantasy managers should always take it as a bonus whenever he produces in the defensive categories like he did Monday. His scoring output likely left managers wanting more, however, and that's become a familiar refrain of late. McCollum has been held under 20 points in four of the Pelicans' last seven contests and is shooting 43.6 percent from the field and 70.6 percent from the free-throw line during that stretch.

  • Pelicans' Larry Nance: On outskirts of rotation

    Nance posted two points (1-1 FG) and three rebounds in 11 minutes during Monday's 124-90 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Nance played his fewest minutes since his return from a six-game injury absence in mid-March and played 15 or fewer minutes for a fifth straight game. It's unclear if the Pelicans are slowly getting the versatile big man back up to speed or if Nance is simply not playing well enough to carve out the role he had earlier in the campaign. Either way, fantasy managers can safely ignore Nance while he's operating in his current role.
