Kira Lewis Jr. News
New Orleans Pelicans small/power forward Brandon Ingram (toe) and point/shooting guard Kira Lewis Jr. (calf) have both been given the thumbs up to get back into action Friday against Philadelphia. Ingram has missed the past five outings due to toe irritation, while Lewis has been out for three contests. Averaging the same scoring total as last season (23.8 PPG), Ingram has proven to be integral not only for New Orleans, but as a staple for season-long fantasy managers as well. Lewis has become a vital member of the Pelicans' bench unit over the last month, and he stands to be a strong DFS play Friday with Lonzo Ball (hip) and Nickeil Alexander-Walker (ankle) unavailable.
New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram (foot) and guard Kira Lewis Jr. (calf) are both questionable to play Friday against the Philadelphia 76ers. Both Ingram and Lewis have been out for the past week, give or take, and have been closer to game-time decisions for most of that time. Ingram seems closer to returning of the two and head coach Stan Van Gundy is hopeful he will return sometime this weekend. If Ingram is out again, James Johnson should get another spot start. If Lewis remains out, Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe should be in line for a ton of minutes, especially with Lonzo Ball (hip) still banged up.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Kira Lewis Jr. (calf) and forward Brandon Ingram (foot) are both out Wednesday against the Brooklyn Nets. Ingram appears closer to making a return, but will miss his fifth-straight game while Lewis will miss his second straight. The Pelicans have lost three of the past four games without Ingram and are likely not willing to rush him back. James Johnson has been starting for Ingram and putting up big defensive numbers with his ability to contribute across the board. With Lewis out, Isaiah Thomas was able to play decent minutes in his Pelicans debut while starters Eric Bledsoe and Lonzo Ball have picked up some extra run as well.
New Orleans Pelicans small/power forward Brandon Ingram (toe) and point/shooting guard Kira Lewis Jr. (calf) have both been ruled out for Tuesday's contest against Atlanta. Ingram's absence due to a toe ailment will now stretch to a fourth game, while Lewis is out of the mix for a second straight outing due to a strained calf. Zion Williamson, Eric Bledsoe and Lonzo Ball stand to key the offense in the injured duo's absence, with Isaiah Thomas likely to crack the rotation in the backcourt. The next chance that Ingram/Lewis will have to suit up comes Wednesday versus the Nets.
