Herbert Jones out, Brandon Ingram questionable for Sacramento game

New Orleans played without both of its All-Star forwards Tuesday at Phoenix. To make matters worse, one of the team’s starting forwards against the Suns, rookie Herbert Jones, was injured by an inadvertent elbow from a teammate, forcing Jones to exit Tuesday’s game.

Jones (concussion protocol) will miss Wednesday’s game at Sacramento (9 p.m. Central) due to his injury. He is joined as out on New Orleans’ official injury update this afternoon by Daulton Hommes (G League assignment/right fibular stress fracture) and Zion Williamson (right foot fracture).

In addition, Brandon Ingram (right hip contusion) is listed as questionable. Ingram has been sidelined for each of the previous two games due to that injury.
