NEW ORLEANS — New Orleans (11-7) continues to climb the Western Conference standings and will seek a third consecutive victory Friday, when the Pelicans visit the Memphis Grizzlies (7 ET, NBA TV) in a Southwest Division matchup.
New Orleans will be playing without a starter and potentially a second potent three-point shooter in FedEx Forum. CJ McCollum (NBA’s Health and Safety Protocols) is among four Pelicans listed as out on Thursday’s official injury list, joining Kira Lewis Jr. (G League assignment), E.J. Liddell (right knee ACL/injury recovery) and Dereon Seabron (G League two-way). Trey Murphy (right foot contusion) is listed as questionable.
