NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Pelicans will return from the All-Star break Thursday (Feb. 23) to face the Raptors in Toronto.

All players except for Zion Williamson are expected to be available to play, according to the team’s injury report, including rookie guard Dyson Daniels, who spent the last month recovering from an ankle injury.

The Pels won four of their last six games but an 18-point loss to the Lakers spoiled the momentum heading into the break.

Meanwhile, head coach Willie Green says the break gave the team a chance to reset before the postseason starts.

“We gotta enjoy our break and get away from the game for a few days,” Green said. “And then come back and refocus on our foundation and principles.”

The Pelicans will take on the Toronto Raptors Thursday night on the road at 6:30 p.m.
