New Orleans Pelicans DFS Notes

Lonzo Ball (right thumb strain) will not play vs. the Warriors on Friday. The Pelicans have nothing to really play for at this point, so it could be a wrap for Ball's 2020-21 season. Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Kira Lewis Jr. benefit the most in Lonzo's absence.

Golden State Warriors DFS Notes

Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins could all be rested on Friday vs. the Pelicans. Coach Steve Kerr said none of those three practiced and were all a "little banged up." In other words, Kerr is debating whether to rest them and said the game between the Kings and Grizzlies will be a factor in terms of seeding. We'll keep a close eye on this as all three are listed as "questionable."

Pelicans vs. Warriors Game Prediction

The under is a perfect 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two teams and is 5-1 in the Pelicans' last six games overall. The under is also 4-1 in the Pelicans' last five games coming off a loss and cashed in nine of their last 10 games after allowing 100 points or more in their previous contest. On the other side, the under is 6-0 in the Warriors' last six games when facing an opponent with a losing record, is 4-1 in their last five games played on Friday and is 7-2 in their last nine games playing on two days of rest.
