Brandon Ingram returned to the practice court Thursday, raising hopes that he might be able to play this weekend for New Orleans during its back-to-back in the Smoothie King Center. Officially, Ingram’s status remained questionable this afternoon, when the Pelicans released their injury report. Also questionable to play Friday vs. the Brooklyn Nets is forward Naji Marshall (right knee soreness).
Four New Orleans players are listed as out, a group that includes Zion Williamson (right foot fracture), as well as the G League-assigned trio of Jose Alvarado, Daulton Hommes (who also has a right fibular stress fracture) and Didi Louzada.
