DeMarcus Cousins    F/C  Pelicans

 

 

DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) was playing through pain in his sore Achilles in the second half of the season, according to general manager Dell Demps. Interestingly, Demps said Cousins took himself out of the All-Star Game for that reason -- not the trade rumors. Cousins actually co-existed quite nicely with Anthony Davis from a stat standpoint, especially with how he made 2.1 treys per game with the Pelicans. He'll likely be a second-round pick next year and hopefully he can keep his techs down.

Cheick Diallo    F  Pelicans

 

 

Cheick Diallo said he wants to increase his weight from 228 to 240 pounds this summer. Can you feel it? You know you're ready for Muscle Watch in April. If you're a fan of contested rebounds, Diallo painted a masterpiece for his career-high 16 boards on Wednesday with several of them coming over multiple Blazers. After looking like he was just a straight-line guy, he's shown much more polish as a scorer, so Diallo's growth heading into his first full NBA offseason is something to watch. He's progressing faster than usual and should be in the rotation next year as Anthony Davis' backup. Cheick back later.

E'Twaun Moore    G  Pelicans

 

 

E'Twaun Moore returned to action on Wednesday April 12.

Alexis Ajinca    C  Pelicans

 

 

Alexis Ajinca (hand) scored 11 points with seven rebounds and a steal over 25 minutes in Wednesday's win in Portland. Ajinca suffered a right hand injury in the game, but he toughed it out and was able to finish strong after a brief absence. He seemed to be a player head coach Alvin Gentry liked, at least down the stretch, so he should return as a backup in 2017-18. However, his fantasy appeal remains rather minimal.

Cheick Diallo    F  Pelicans

 

 

Cheick Diallo scored 12 points with a career-high 16 rebounds in Wednesday's 103-100 win against the Trail Blazers. Diallo finished up strong, as head coach Alvin Gentry used his younger players to put a little pressure on them in game action before the regular season wrapped up. It was the third-double of Diallo's career, and second in as many games. The former Kansas University standout looked very good and will have a role as a backup in 2017-18. He'll also be worth a look in the final rounds of fantasy leagues.

E'Twaun Moore    G  Pelicans

 

 

E'Twaun Moore (ankle) will play against the Blazers on Wednesday. It's unclear how much he'll play with the Pelicans wanting to get a look at guys like Quinn Cook, Jordan Crawford and Alex Toupane.
