New Orleans Pelicans DFS Notes

Willie Green said that Brandon Ingram (right hamstring tightness) is questionable to play against the Grizzlies on Saturday, per Christian Clark of NOLA. BI missed their game against the Trail Blazers, and it appears it may have been more than just a rest day against a bad team. If BI misses another game, Devonte' Graham should get another start. Graham is averaging 8.6 points, 3.9 assists, and 1.9 triples as a starter alongside C.J. McCollum this season.

Memphis Grizzlies DFS Notes

Ja Morant (right knee soreness) is being listed as questionable to play in Saturday’s game against the Pelicans. After not appearing in any of the Grizzlies’ last nine games, Morant finally has a chance to return tomorrow. Memphis has already locked up the second seed in the West, so they don’t necessarily need to play him, but they could throw him out there to try and rebuild the team’s chemistry over the last pair of games assuming he’s feeling up to it. If Morant can suit up, that means the end of super-streamer Tyus Jones, who posted seventh-round numbers in nine starts without Ja. Be sure to check back on Morant’s final status before tomorrow’s 6pm EST tip.
