Lonzo Ball (hip) good to go for Pelicans Friday night

New Orleans Pelicans point guard Lonzo Ball (hip) said he will play Friday against the Washington Wizards.

What It Means:

Ball is ready to return after missing the last four games and 11 of the past 14. The Pelicans haven't mentioned any sort of minutes limit and Ball's return should knock Naji Marshall back to the second unit. Zion Williamson and Eric Bledsoe also figure to see downticks in usage with Ball back in the lineup.

numberFire’s models project Lonzo for 34.7 FanDuel points versus the Wizards and he has a salary of $7,700 on Friday. Zion registers a minus-2.9 percent usage differential with Lonzo on the court this season.
