Pelicans jump out to a 16-5 lead over the Kings. Naji Marshall is off to a fast start with 9 points, continuing trend of playing much more effectively as a starter.
Starter: 15.3 PTS, 5.4 REB, 3.3 AST, 45.8 FG%, 34.2 3PT%
Reserve: 6.8 PTS, 2.7 REB, 2.2 AST, 38.5 FG%, 29.3 3PT% – 7:20 PM

Naji Marshall has scored or assisted on 14 of the Pels’ first 16 points. He’s feeling himself early, even after airballing his first shot.
Can’t shake Headband Naji’s confidence. – 7:20 PM

Brandon Ingram didn’t suffer any setback/re-injure his left great toe against the Lakers last night, but he is batting some soreness in that area. Remember, he’s not 100% yet despite returning to play several games ago. – 5:21 PM

Jonas Valanciunas will not play tonight against the Kings. His MRI came back clean, but the Pelicans are holding him out a day for precautionary reasons (some soreness).
It’ll be the first missed game of the season for JV. – 5:18 PM

De’Aaron Fox remains out with a personal issue for Sacramento. – 4:38 PM
Jason Anderson
@JandersonSacBee
Confirmed via league office: NBA commissioner Adam Silver will select an injury replacement if a player is unable to participate in the All-Star Game, but at this point they aren’t saying when or if that will occur. De’Aaron Fox has to be on the shortlist if Steph Curry is out. – 4:11 PM

I’m guessing Ja Morant will be elevated to start the All-Star Game. He was third in fan voting and overall in the guard voting.

The losing streak is finally over.
The Pels broke thru against the Lakers behind a long-awaited 35-point outburst from Brandon Ingram.
But this win wasn’t all about BI. It was a reminder of how dangerous NOLA can be when all their impact players step up
