Following today’s cross-country trip to the Pacific Northwest, the Pelicans released their official injury list ahead of Tuesday’s game at Portland. JJ Redick remains sidelined for New Orleans due to right heel soreness. He is the lone New Orleans player mentioned on the update.
Portland’s recent injury list has been lengthy, including starters C.J. McCollum (foot) and Jusuf Nurkic (wrist), as well as reserve Harry Giles (calf). Zach Collins (ankle) has not appeared in a game this season due to injury. None of those four Trail Blazers played Sunday in a loss to Minnesota. However, Shams Charania of The Athletic reported Monday that McCollum will make his return to Portland’s lineup against New Orleans.
