With the margin of error to remain in the Western Conference play-in race decreasing, New Orleans may be without two of its starters Tuesday vs. Golden State. Point guard Lonzo Ball (right thumb sprain) and center Steven Adams (right first MTP sprain) are listed as questionable to play against the Warriors. Adams has been sidelined for each of the past three games.
Also for New Orleans, Nickeil Alexander-Walker (left high ankle sprain), Josh Hart (right thumb surgery) and Didi Louzada (not with team) are all listed as out for Tuesday’s game.
On the Golden State side, Kelly Oubre Jr., Eric Paschall, Damion Lee, James Wiseman and Klay Thompson were all out Monday. Andrew Wiggins was uncertain to play prior to tip-off, but ended up being a big factor in the Warriors’ 123-108 victory over the Pelicans.
