UPDATE: Feb. 11, 7:13 p.m. — Williamson will start along with Josh Hart vs. Portland. Ingram isn’t listed as a starter, so he will be out again.

UPDATE: Feb. 11, 5:39 p.m. Williams is probable and Ingram is questionable vs. the Blazers, per the 5:30 NBA injury report.

New Orleans Pelicans PF Zion Williamson and SF Brandon Ingram are both expected to play Tuesday vs. the Portland Trail Blazers, per coach Alvin Gentry.

Both Zion and Ingram were held out of Saturday’s game vs. the Pacers. Ingram has an ankle sprain and Williamson is dealing with a sprained toe. We don’t know official designations, but for now let’s just say both are probable.

Fantasy basketball analysis: New Orleans Pelicans

With both sidelined against the Pacers, we saw Jrue Holiday chalk hit in a big way. He finished with 31 points, 10 assists and six rebounds. J.J. Redick also saw 28 minutes off the bench and scored 23 points. Both get a downgrade if Ingram and Zion can return. I’d still consider Holiday an OK tournament play depending on how Gentry will handle the rotation. Keep it here for more updates.
