  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Available to face Indiana

    Alvarado is available to face the Pacers on Friday following his three-game suspension.

    Alvarado was suspended "for leaving the bench area during an on-court altercation that occurred with 11:19 remaining in the fourth quarter of Friday's 106-95 loss to the Heat", but the ban is over, and the guard should be an option off the bench when New Orleans takes on Indiana. Alvarado has made each of his 39 appearances off the bench, averaging 7.0 points, 2.2 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Draws three-game suspension

    The NBA announced Sunday that Alvarado has been suspended three games without pay for leaving the bench area during an on-court altercation that occurred with 11:19 remaining in the fourth quarter of Friday's 106-95 loss to the Heat, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

    Five players in total were suspended as a result of the altercation that was sparked when the Heat's Kevin Love committed a foul on the Pelicans' Zion Williamson. Miami's Jimmy Butler and New Orleans' Naji Marshall proceeded to begin fighting after the Love foul and drew one-game suspension for their actions, while Alvarado and the Heat's Thomas Bryant received three-game bans for leaving the bench and getting involved in the fracas. The Heat's Nikola Jovic was also a handed a one-game suspension for leaving the bench area. Alvarado and Marshall will begin serving their suspensions Sunday versus the Bulls, potentially leaving the Pelicans shorthanded with two starters in Brandon Ingram (illness) and Zion Williamson (foot) already listed as questionable for the contest and with another CJ McCollum (ankle) ruled out. Alvarado is eligible to return to action Friday versus the Pacers.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Ejected after altercation

    Alvarado was ejected from Friday's game versus Miami with 11:19 remaining in the fourth quarter.

    After things escalated between Jimmy Butler and Naji Marshall on the court, Alvarado got into a scrap with Thomas Bryant on the sidelines, and punches were thrown from both sides. This puts Alvarado's status for Sunday's game against Chicago in jeopardy, and that's not ideal for the Pelicans since CJ McCollum left this game with an ankle injury. Alvarado finished with five points (2-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 18 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Steady presence in win

    Alvarado recorded eight points (3-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), two rebounds, three assists and two steals across 19 minutes during Friday's 114-113 win over San Antonio.

    Alvarado continues to play a modest role, but he was part of New Orleans' closing lineup Friday, symbolizing the trust he has in the rotation. The 25-year-old is hitting 39.0 percent of 3.4 threes per game this season, but he rarely exceeds a 15-to-20 minute role, which best profiles him as a streaming candidate when the Pelicans are shorthanded.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Barely visible in loss

    Alvarado closed with two points (1-4 FG, 0-3 3Pt) and one assist over seven minutes during Friday's 123-109 loss to Phoenix.

    Alvarado played just seven minutes off the bench in the loss, a worrying trend for anyone who is hoping he can be a steals streamer. To this point, he is averaging 1.0 steals per game, logging 16.5 minutes per night. Given he has played seven and three minutes respectively in each of the past two games, his outlook is quite bleak.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Good to go against Golden State

    Alvarado (illness) is available for Wednesday's game versus the Warriors, Marc J. Spears of ESPN.com reports.

    Alvarado has been upgraded from questionable to available after missing the Pelicans' previous game with an illness. Alvarado is averaging 7.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists and 1.2 steals in 20.0 minutes across his last five appearances.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Listed as questionable

    Alvarado (illness) is questionable for Wednesday's game versus the Warriors.

    Alvarado missed his first game since Dec. 1 on Sunday against the Kings, but he remains day-to-day. If he's forced to the sidelines again, Dyson Daniels could see another significant workload after he had 14 points, six assists, five rebounds and two three-pointers in Sunday's win over Sacramento.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Out with illness

    Alvarado won't play in Sunday's game versus the Kings due to a non-COVID illness.

    Alvarado will miss his first game since Dec. 1 on Sunday due to an illness. Dyson Daniels will likely receive increased minutes in Alvarado's absence. Alvarado's next chance to suit up is Wednesday's matchup with the Warriors.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Leads bench in scoring

    Alvarado registered 13 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals over 22 minutes in Tuesday's 112-85 win over the Nets.

    With the Pelicans up by 25 points at halftime, Alvarado and the rest of the bench players got extended playing time. It was the first time he registered double-digit points since Dec. 17 during a blowout win over the Spurs. Alvarado has now played 20-plus minutes in two straight games but is averaging just 6.7 points on the season.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Plays well in blowout

    Alvarado finished Sunday's 146-110 victory over the Spurs with 16 points (5-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, four assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

    The Pelicans put this game away in a hurry, allowing Alvarado to feast in garbage time. In the final six minutes of the fourth quarter, Alvarado racked up nine of his 16 points to help him secure a new season-best mark. Alvarado is likely to be an inconsistent source of fantasy value as long as CJ McCollum and Dyson Daniels are healthy.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Good to go Saturday

    Alvarado (ankle) is available for Saturday's game against the Bulls.

    Alvarado wasn't able to play in Friday's game against the Spurs, but he'll return Saturday and provide some backcourt support with CJ McCollum taking the night off for rest. It's more likely that Dyson Daniels sees the bulk of the point guard minutes Saturday.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Questionable for Saturday

    Alvarado (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's matchup against the Bulls, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Alvarado missed Friday's win over the Spurs due to a right ankle sprain and may be sidelined for a second straight game Saturday. If he remains out, Dyson Daniels and Jordan Hawkins are candidates for increased roles, as CJ McCollum (chest/rest), Trey Murphy (rest) and Matt Ryan (elbow) are also out.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Will not play

    Alvarado (ankle) will not play in Friday's game against the Spurs.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Deemed questionable for Friday

    Alvarado (ankle) is questionable for Friday's game against San Antonio, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Alvarado sprained his right ankle during Wednesday's win over the 76ers and returned to action afterward, but he didn't practice Thursday and will carry a questionable tag ahead of the first half of a back-to-back set Friday. If he's unavailable, Dyson Daniels and Jordan Hawkins could see increased run.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Returns after brief exit

    Alvarado (ankle) has returned to Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Alvarado departed from Wednesday's game against Philadelphia after tweaking his right ankle -- the same ankle that caused him to miss nearly the first month of the season. His re-appearance Wednesday should create confidence for fantasy managers moving forward.
