Pelicans’ Jameer Nelson to overlook Sunday’s recreation vs. Knicks


The New Orleans Pelicans had a late addition to the injury report before Sunday’s tilt against the New York Knicks, announcing that point guard Jameer Nelson will sit out due to personal reasons.

Nelson is averaging 5.0 points and 3.7 assists and it will be the third game he’s missed this season since joining the Pelicans. 

Pelicans guard Ian Clark is likely to play the backup point guard role in Nelson’s absence and Mike James, who the team signed to a two-way deal on Saturday, may also see minutes at some point.

The other players listed as out in Sunday’s injury report were Tony Allen (left fibula fracture), Alexis Ajinca (right knee), Solomon Hill (left hamstring tear) and Frank Jackson (right foot fracture).
