Pelicans' starting lineup is limping, with 2 key players missing.
Shooting guard Eric Gordon is
battling a hip contusion he suffered earlier this week in Sacramento when Kings
guard Isaiah Thomas undercut Gordon. So far, Gordon has been relegated to
riding an exercise bike, and there's no timetable for his return.
"He's got a deep contusion on his
rear, so to speak," head coach Monty Williams said. "I've had that
before and when you try to run it feels like your muscles are pulling your hip
in the wrong direction, and you can't run properly.'"
Friday night for the first time, point
guard Jrue Holiday will attempt to carry the team without Gordon's help. Going
into the game against the Denver Nuggets, the Pelicans were one of only four
teams to have enjoyed the luxury of the same starting backcourt all season.
Teams to Have Same Starting Backcourt Every
Game in 2013-14
Pelicans Jrue Holiday
& Eric Gordon
Bobcats Kemba Walker & Gerald Henderson
Trail Blazers Damian Lillard & Wesley
Raptors Kyle Lowry & DeMar DeRozan
Center Jason Smith is plagued by a bruise knee that's the culmination of
several blows, not one particular incident. He attempted to play Friday, but
did not pass a physical examination after attempting to warm up.
"Bone bruises stink because you
can't really see it, but you definitely feel it," Smith said. "It
feels like a charley horse in your leg. The only thing that bugs me is the
recurring pain under my knee."
