Jonas Valanciunas News
New Orleans Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas posted a sturdy double-double in the team's Game 4 win over the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. He racked up 26 points and 15 rebounds in the game. He shot 9-for-15 from the field and 7-for-11 from the free throw line. He connected on his only three-point attempt in the game and also had four assists. This was a great bounce-back game for the nine-year veteran, who struggled in Game 3, shooting just 1-for-5 while scoring only six points. He's been a beast on the boards this series, averaging 16.0 rebounds per game. He'll look to continue his rebounding dominance in Game 5 on Tuesday.
New Orleans Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas enjoyed a field day on the glass during Sunday's defeat to the Suns. Valanciunas grabbed a staggering 25 rebounds in total, tying his career high. The last time that Valanciunas pulled down that many boards came Feb. 28, 2020, while the 13 offensive rebounds that he secured set a new career best for the regular season or playoffs. Many of those boards came on the back of his own misses, as he finished 7-for-21 from the floor during his double-double, which saw him finish with 18 points. It's hard to imagine that the Pelicans out-rebound the Suns by 20 boards in Game 2, but it's clear that the 29-year-old is having his way on the interior.
New Orleans Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) is set to suit up for Thursday night's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Valanciunas sat out Tuesday's game due to a sore right ankle. Willy Hernangomez filled his spot in the starting five for the contest and wound up racking up 12 points and 12 boards over 26 minutes. Hernangomez will shift back to having a minimal bench role upon Valanciunas's return. Over 72 games on the year, Valanciunas is averaging 17.9 points and 11.6 rebounds per game while sporting a sturdy 54.3% field goal percentage.
New Orleans Pelicans center Jonas Valanciunas (ankle) has been deemed questionable to suit up for Thursday's game vs. Portland due to a sore right ankle. Willy Hernangomez stepped into the starting five Tuesday in place of Valanciunas and logged a double-double, while Jaxson Hayes tied for the team lead with 23 points; an absence from Valanciunas would likely thrust the duo back into significant roles. The 29-year-old has been a beacon of consistency for New Orleans this year, snatching double-digit rebounds in 52 of his 72 outings. The Blazers' interior defense has been lax since their new-look frontcourt took over, so Valanciunas could be in line for some sizable DFS appeal if he ultimately receives the green light.
