The New Orleans Pelicans have been dealing with injuries left and right. Zion Williamson made it back from a thumb sprain on Tuesday to play against the Atlanta Hawks. He scored 34 points in a losing effort. New Orleans has also been without Brandon Ingram (toe) and Kira Lewis Jr. (calf), as well as Josh Hart (thumb) and Nickeil Alexander-Walker (ankle). As a result, the Pels are 22-28 and likely to miss out on the play-in tournament in May.
The Nets got some bad news on Tuesday with James Harden being ruled out for at least 10 days with a hamstring strain. After being super cautious with Kevin Durant’s hamstring, Brooklyn decided to rush back Harden and he was forced to leave Monday’s game after aggravating the injury. So Harden will be sidelined for at least 10 days and then the team will re-evaluate the All-Star. With Harden out, Durant is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday vs. the Pelicans.
