Injuries have forced Willie Green to shuffle his lineups and rotation from what New Orleans planned early in 2021-22. It’s possible that will be the case to an even greater degree Tuesday.
On Monday evening’s injury update, Pelicans starters Devonte’ Graham (left adductor tightness) and Brandon Ingram (right hip contusion), as well as reserve Garrett Temple (left ankle sprain) were all listed as questionable for the road-trip opener at Phoenix (Tuesday, 9 p.m. Central, TNT, 100.3 FM).
Daulton Hommes (right fibular stress fracture) and Zion Williamson (right foot fracture) are listed as out.
