The Pelicans are coming off a 119-108 victory over the Houston Rockets. They looked great on offense, and they will need to stay efficient in this one if they want to compete with the Nets at home.
Larry Nance Jr. (Neck) is questionable in this game. While Zion Williamson (hamstring), Brandon Ingram (toe), and E.J. Liddell (knee) are all out.
Zion Williamson (hamstring) is expected to be out for several weeks, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
He had an MRI of his hamstring earlier in the day, and the results don’t look promising. The star big man has a history of long injuries in his three years in the league, and he will now add another to the list.
According to Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans, Brondan Ingram (toe) has been on the court more recently but isn’t yet ready to return to game action.
Ingram’s return to action is still unknown, but he appears to be progressing in the right direction. As Ingram’s return to the lineup approaches, the team should provide more information on his condition. Ingram hasn’t played since Nov. 25 against the Grizzlies.
The Brooklyn Nets are coming off a 121-112 loss to the Chicago Bulls. The Bulls shot 53.1% from the field, causing them to struggle on defense. If they want to challenge the Pels on the road, they will have to contest more shots in this game.
Kevin Durant has been on a tear since the beginning of December, averaging 29.2 points, 6.9 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.1 blocks per game in his last 14 games.
T.J. Warren (Ribs) and Markieff Morris (Illness) are listed as questionable in this game.
