Rookie Patric Young is in uniform & active tonight for Pelicans. They may need both Young and Jeff Withey if Ajinca gets in foul trouble.

Nakia Hogan

Pelicans will need Alexis Ajinca's size tonight. They also will need Ryan Anderson's scoring off the bench.

Pelicans win 100-91 in a comfortable close to the game. Gordon was 0/6 from the field, Ajinca had a foul per minute.

Pelicans backup center Alexis Ajinca gets fifth foul after playing just six minutes.

Bienvenue Ajinca. Foul on first possession for an and-1. And the next one with 0.4 seconds left. Only 1 more...

Jason Calmes

Monty still has plenty of time to make adjustments as he sees fit. I wouldn't be surprised if Ajinca works his way into a few mins/gm soon.

Jason Calmes

So far we have only seen 3 bigs, AD, Asik, and Ryno. It'll be interesting to see if Monty expands his rotation to include Ajinca.
