Naji Marshall’s picks for Western Conference All-Star starters: “Jose. B.I. Me. Zion. And I want to say Murphy. I think I picked Murphy.” – 2:44 PM

Pelicans fall 111-102 to the Timberwolves. Thought another down-to-the-wire finish was incoming after Willie Green’s ejection, but no such luck.
Tough shooting nights for Brandon Ingram and Naji Marshall, combining for 18 points on 5 of 24 shooting. CJ McCollum had 25 points. – 10:29 PM

Blazers are giving out a Top Shot of Dame becoming the all-time leading scorer to everyone who’s at the game. I wonder if I could get more or less for it than the Jaxson Hayes dunk I sold for $50 during the boom. – 10:28 PM

Brandon Ingram and Naji Marshall have struggled with their rhythm in their returns. Combined averages through 3 quarters:
12 points
4-19 FGAs
0-5 3PT
6 assists vs 7 turnovers – 9:49 PM

It checks out. Willy Hernangomez getting run over Jaxson Hayes is the right move. Love how Nance/Willy play off each other. Both can make a play or a timely cut. And Willy’s held his own defensively. Forced Ant to pass after a switch and his help D has been good. – 8:37 PM

Already seeing a difference in #Pelicans offense with Naji Marshall going downhill. He’s having fun and talking to some fans after his pretty dish to Willy Hernangomez. Would’ve been Naji’s third assist in 6 mins but Wolves hacked Willy on the shot attempt – 8:28 PM

It’s official! he’s back!!
Brandon Ingram will play after missing the last 29 games with a left great toe contusion.
Naji Marshall is also available for the Pelicans matchup against the Timberwolves after missing 3 games with a right great toe soreness. PM

Christian Clark @cclark_13
Brandon Ingram and Naji Marshall are available, Pelicans say. – 7:28 PM
Andrew Lopez @_Andrew_Lopez
Willie Green says Brandon Ingram and Naji Marshall are warming up and final decision will be made after that.
Both are probable. – 6:16 PM
Christian Clark @cclark_13
Brandon Ingram and Naji Marshall both listed as probable tonight. Ingram set to make his return two months after getting injured.
Dyson Daniels is out. Right ankle sprain. – 1:13 PM
Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Brandon Ingram, Naji Marshall listed as probable to play Wednesday vs. Timberwolves. #Pelicans injury report via @MorrisBartLLC: PM

Jim Eichenhofer @Jim_Eichenhofer
Starting Jaxson Hayes next to Jonas Valanciunas sometimes benefited Willy Hernangomez last season in terms of more minutes off the bench. After Jonas picks up 2 fouls, Hernangomez subs in early – 8:20 PM
Oleh Kosel @OlehKosel
Jaxson Hayes will be in the starting lineup for the Pelicans-Nuggets matchup.
Also, Brandon Ingram’s odds of playing tomorrow against the Timberwolves are really good and Zion Williamson has received the green light to introduce some physical activity. PM

Jaxson Hayes
Jonas Valanciunas – 7:32 PM

Willie Green says Brandon Ingram (left big toe contusion) will not play tonight. Neither will Naji Marshall (right big toe soreness).
Green wouldn’t commit to Ingram playing tomorrow but there is optimism he could return then. – 6:22 PM
