Derrick Favors, Brandon Ingram and Frank Jackson have all been ruled out of Sunday’s game against Golden State, joining five other Pelicans who are sidelined. As a result, New Orleans has nine players available to play vs. the Warriors, among a 17-player roster.
JJ Redick (left great toe sprain) is available to play. The starting lineup is expected to be Redick, Jrue Holiday, E’Twaun Moore, Kenrich Williams and Jaxson Hayes. If he starts, it will be the first of rookie Hayes’ NBA career.
