  • Moore (leg) will miss a second straight game Wednesday against the Thunder.
    Advice: Moore played just 15 minutes on Sunday and clearly isn't recovered from his recent leg strain.

  • E'Twaun Moore (leg) will not play vs. the Thunder on Wednesday.
    Advice: The Pelicans are going to be missing some bodies with Nikola Mirotic (ankle) also out. Moore's injury is not considered serious, but this will be his second game out in a row. Frank Jackson and Tim Frazier should have their minutes extended today with Frazier being a DFS option today in a tougher matchup.
  • E'Twaun Moore (lower leg strain) is questionable to play Wednesday against the Thunder.
    Advice: Moore sat out Monday's game with what the team labeled a "rest" day, but it's clear that the leg issue has been affecting him for over a week. We'll have a better idea on his status following shootaround, but if he is forced to spend another game on the sidelines, Solomon Hill and Darius Miller will soak up most of his minutes.
  • E'Twaun Moore (rest) will not suit up for Monday's game in Boston.
    Advice: Moore hasn't looked right for over a week now with the leg issue, so the Pelicans will give him the night off on the second leg of this back-to-back set. Solomon Hill and Wes Johnson could pick up some extra minutes tonight with Moore unavailable, but that doesn't mean much in fantasy hoops.
  • Updating a previous report, E'Twaun Moore (leg) is on the court for Sunday's game against the Pistons.
    Advice: He was "ruled out" at the last minute today, but then came into the came after Anthony Davis (hip) went to the locker room. It's unclear if him getting ruled out late was a miscommunication, or if it had something to do with Davis going down, but either way, he's out there.
  • Moore (strained lower leg) is available to play in Detroit on Sunday.
    Advice: After a hot start, Moore has averaged just 8.8 points on 36.8 percent shooting in his last eight games.

  • Updating a previous report, E'Twaun Moore (lower leg strain) will not play on Sunday against the Pistons.
    Advice: Moore was initially being listed as probable, but at the last second, the Pelicans decided to hold him out. Moore has been dealing with this leg issue for a little over a week now, so it makes sense to give him some time off with Detroit also missing three key rotation players. The Pelicans play again on Monday in Boston, and for now, we'll be considering Moore questionable for that one. Solomon Hill will pick up most of his minutes, but that doesn't mean much.
  • E'Twaun Moore scored four points Sunday, going 1 of 5 from the field, as the New Orleans Pelicans defeated the Detroit Pistons 116-108. Moore grabbed two rebounds and did not have an assist, accumulating a plus-minus of -8 in his 15:50 of playing time.
    Stats Inc.
  • E'Twaun Moore (leg) was a no-show on Sunday, scoring just four points on 1-of-5 shooting (2-of-2 from the line) to go with two rebounds and nothing else over 16 minutes.
    Advice: There was some miscommunication about Moore's playing status in this one, but based on his performance, he probably should have just sat this one out. With the Pelicans set to take on the Celtics on Monday, there's a chance he'll skip that game to try and get over this lower leg injury, which would result in more minutes for Solomon Hill and Tim Frazier. Moore has been in an awful slump through December, and is trending towards cut-candidate territory.
  • E'Twaun Moore (lower leg strain) is probable for Sunday against the Pistons.
    Advice: He had a contusion to his lower leg earlier this week, but a strain this time means it's muscle related. Moore should be fine for this game and he has been coming off the bench in the last two. Ideally he's going to get put back in the starting lineup in the near future, but he's still a hold in standard leagues.
