Three New Orleans starters were listed on this afternoon’s injury report ahead of a Saturday 6 p.m. home game against Boston, each with a different status. Point guard Devonte’ Graham (left ankle sprain) is probable, while Jonas Valanciunas (non-Covid illness) is questionable. Brandon Ingram (right ankle sprain) is out, joining a total of five Pelicans who have that status for Saturday. The others are Kira Lewis Jr. (right knee ACL/MCL sprain), Didi Louzada (health and safety protocols), Trey Murphy III (health and safety protocols) and Zion Williamson (right foot fracture).

On the Boston side, the Celtics are relatively healthy, with only two players having been sidelined for recent games, both acquisitions in a trade with Denver. Bol Bol underwent foot surgery, while PJ Dozier is out for the season with a knee injury.
