Nickeil Alexander-Walker News
New Orleans Pelicans point guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker draws the start in his team's opening game of the season against the 76ers. Alexander-Walker steps into quite the opportunity with Lonzo Ball now in Chicago- and should be expected to handle the point guard duties for the Pelicans- with Devonte' Graham playing off the ball. It could be a lucrative opportunity for Alexander-Walker, who has averaged 19.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 3.3 assists per game in his career as a starter. Look for him to get off to a good start in what could be a high-scoring game against Philadelphia.
New Orleans Pelicans point guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker has been given the green light to suit up for Sunday's game against Charlotte. Alexander-Walker last took the floor April 4, meaning that he'll be acclimated to the mix with a minutes restriction. Lonzo Ball still stands to see sizable upside with Zion Williamson (finger) and Brandon Ingram (ankle) sidelined, even as the backcourt gains some much-needed depth. Prior to being injured, Alexander-Walker had a seven-game stretch as a starter in which he averaged 18.9 PPG while knocking down 3.6 made triples on a nightly basis. He faces a tough path to reclaiming that role over the final week, but fantasy managers will want to check back for the latest updates on information concerning his minutes allotment.
New Orleans Pelicans center Steven Adams (toe) and point guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker (ankle) have both been deemed unavailable for Friday's contest against the 76ers. Adams continues to push his back onto the floor, having returned Tuesday, but he was ultimately held to just 24 minutes and one point; Alexander-Walker has not suited up since April 4 with an ankle ailment. The constant frontcourt shuffling pushes intrigue in the direction of Willy Hernangomez and Jaxson Hayes, who have drawn sizable DFS interest when Adams has been down. Alexander-Walker's absence opens up Eric Bledsoe and Lonzo Ball for all of the shot attempts that they can handle, especially in light of Zion Williamson (finger) and Brandon Ingram (ankle) being out indefinitely.
New Orleans Pelicans guard Nickeil Alexander-Walker (ankle) is questionable for Friday night's matchup against the Philadelphia 76ers. The 22-year-old has missed over a month after suffering a high ankle sprain at the beginning of April. If he did suit up, he would likely face a minutes restriction. However, his presence would still have an impact on Eric Bledsoe and Naji Marshall's minutes.
