New Orleans will play without two starters Sunday against the Denver Nuggets (2:30 p.m., Bally Sports, WRNO 99.5 FM) in the Smoothie King Center, as the Pelicans continue to try to compensate for the injury absences of key players. Brandon Ingram (left great toe contusion) and Herb Jones (left ankle sprain) are deemed out on Saturday’s afternoon injury report. Also listed as out for New Orleans are Kira Lewis Jr. (G League assignment), E.J Liddell (right knee ACL injury recovery) and Dereon Seabron (G League two-way).
