“We are extremely encouraged with the progress Darius has made in his recovery process,” Pelicans Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations David Griffin said. “The work he has put in both prior to and during these limited mandatory workouts has been remarkable. We look forward to seeing him back at full strength heading into the 2020-21 campaign.” The Pelicans will not be granted an additional roster spot pursuant to the rules the NBA has set forth for signing replacement players for the remainder of the 2019-20 season.
Favors was upgraded to questionable on Tuesday’s injury report, ahead of Wednesday’s home matchup against the Los Angeles Lakers. Also questionable on the New Orleans injury report is former Lakers guard/forward Josh Hart (left ankle sprain), who has not played in a game since Nov. 11 vs. Houston. Zion Williamson and Darius Miller remain officially out on the injury report.
When Anthony Davis subbed in for the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday night at the 9:49 mark of the second quarter of their game against the Oklahoma City Thunder, it put a remarkable six former Kentucky Wildcats on the floor at the same time. The occasion was noted by their former coach, John Calipari in a post on Twitter soon after it happened.

What’s more, according to Synergy Sports Tech, Miller is the league’s most accurate spot-up shooter among men with at least 80 such opportunities, scoring a ridiculous 1.38 points per possession (PPP) on those looks. When told about his mightily impressive marks, the sixth-year pro was quick to give a lot of the recognition to his teammates. “I get a lot of open looks here with all of the attention that our star players bring to themselves,” Miller told HoopsHype. “[Davis and Cousins] are two of the best big men in the league. And I’ve known them for a while, so they’re good friends of mine. It’s just always fun to be in an environment like that when you’re trying to play basketball.”
