INDIANAPOLIS, IN (WVUE) - -

Jrue Holiday's addition to the Pelicans' inactive list with a toe blister meant eight players were out of commission Thursday and only eight were active against the Pacers leading to an eight point loss at Indiana.

Alvin Gentry's depleted squad fought valiantly with Alexis Ajinca's 22 points and 9 rebounds leading the way while Alonzo Gee posted a season-high 17.

The Pacers' Myles Turner led all scorers with 24 but the home team got a scare when Paul George left the game due to injury but word from Indiana is that the All-Star suffered a lower right leg contusion and will be day-to-day.

The Pelicans fall to 26-45 on the season and will return home for a Saturday game against the playoff-bound Raptors.
