The Pelicans had a hard-fought 116-111 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Monday. The team played without Anthony Davis, Elfrid Payton and Darius Miller but the bench kept New Orleans in the game. The Pelicans cut the lead to two in the fourth quarter but eight turnovers and a 1-for-6 performance from the free-throw line kept the game out of reach for New Orleans.
Davis is listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game while Miller is doubtful and Payton will not play. Davis was listed by the Pelicans as a probable starter for the game but if he can’t start, the Pelicans could go with either Jahlil Okafor, who started against Denver, or Cheick Diallo. Julius Randle is likely to come off the bench.
Former Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins will not play for the Warriors as he is still recovering from his Achilles injury.
