    Pelicans look to build on win streak with Hornets up next

    The New Orleans Pelicans have been slipping in the Western Conference pecking order as they try to snag a spot in the play-in tournament. "It doesn't matter who we play," Pelicans coach Willie Green said. One player who won't touch the floor is All-Star forward Zion Williamson, who has been sidelined since straining a hamstring Jan. 2. The Pelicans announced Wednesday that Williamson, who recently suffered a setback, has been cleared to return to on-court activities and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.


    Michael Jordan considering sale of Hornets, but no deal is imminent

    Michael Jordan is considering selling the Charlotte Hornets. The six-time NBA champion is in negotiations to sell at least a portion of the franchise to a group that includes Hornets minority owner Gabe Plotkin. “Four years ago, Michael Jordan sold a stake in the Charlotte Hornets to a Gabe Plotkin-led group,” Jump Management, which is Michael Jordan's family office, said in a statement to The Associated Press on Wednesday. “As a natural step in a process due to that transaction, Michael and Gabe are in discussions about his group potentially buying an additional stake.”
