New Orleans Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins (right ankle sprain) is questionable to play against the Denver Nuggets on Sunday. What It Means: Cousins apparently tweaked his ankle on Friday, but he was able to finish the game and he played the entire fourth quarter. We should know more later in the afternoon, but if Cousins can't go, Dante Cunningham will likely get the start while Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday will each get a big boost in DFS value on Sunday. If Cousins does play, our models project him for 25.9 points, 10.8 rebounds, 4.2 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.3 blocks...

Pelicans rule out DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) on Sunday, Dante Cunningham to start

New Orleans Pelicans forward/center DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Denver Nuggets. What It Means: Cousins was questionable going into this one, so it doesn't come as a huge surprise that he's been ruled out. Dante Cunningham will draw the start at power forward, while Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday should both see increased workloads on the offensive end.
