Game thread: Starting lineups for Pelicans-Kings matchup reflects two teams lacking playoff aspirations

With the playoffs no longer a possibility, the New Orleans Pelicans are going to field a rather unusual-looking starting lineup.

Starters for tonight’s matchup:

Pelicans Starters:

Lonzo Ball
E’Twaun Moore
Josh Hart
Nicolò Melli
Jaxson Hayes

Kings Starters:

Cory Joseph
Bogdon Bogdanovic
Harrison Barnes
Nemanja Bjelica

With Jrue Holiday, Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson ruled out yesterday, Alvin Gentry was going to have to trot out something highly irregular, but it’s interesting to see Jaxson Hayes receive the nod ahead of Derrick Favors, who is reportedly available.
