Three Pelicans listed as out for Monday game in Boston

Following Saturday’s loss at Brooklyn, New Orleans will look to even its record on a three-game Eastern Conference road trip when it visits Boston on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, with an unusual tip-off time of 11:30 a.m. Central (12:30 p.m. in Massachusetts). The Pelicans enter the interconference matchup with three players listed as out on their official injury update, including Kira Lewis Jr. (right knee ACL/MCL sprain), Zion Williamson (right foot fracture) and Didi Louzada (G League assignment).

On the Boston side, Marcus Smart (health and safety protocols) has been sidelined for the Celtics’ last three games.
