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...

Jordan Crawford has been stellar and there’s hope his career has turned an important page

Hey, New Orleans, this journeyman may not be a complete mirage. Jordan Crawford’s stint with the New Orleans Pelicans is off to one of the best individual starts in franchise history. Through his first three games, he is averaging over 15 points a game and shooting better than 50% from the field. Only six other players, including widely considered the best players in franchise history — Chris Paul, Anthony Davis and David West, have began a season in New Orleans similarly or better. Just two have managed the feat without starting a single game: Ryan Anderson and Jrue Holiday. That’s...

Pelicans' Anthony Davis' (wrist) X-rays come back clean

New Orleans Pelicans forward/center Anthony Davis' X-rays on his bruised left wrist came back negative. What It Means: Davis should be considered day-to-day for now, but with the Pelicans falling out of the playoff race, he may be limited down the stretch.

He's averaging 27.8 points (career-best), 11.7 rebounds (career-best), 2.2 assists (ties career-best), 1.2 steals and 2.3 blocks per game this season while shooting...
