Pelicans will be without Rajon Rondo on Wednesday as the 12th season veteran point guard is out with an injury. Jrue Holiday for the second straight season will be jumping between starting at point guard (while Rondo remains sidelined) and shooting guard ( after Rondo returns).
In order to make things work out, Holiday and the team’s other guards will be making plays with Cousins and Anthony Davis as much as possible,
The roster has some fine reserves lineup as well, E’Twaun Moore, Ian Clark, Charles Cooke, Jordan Crawford, and Frank Jackson can play big roles at dispense.
General Manager Chris Wallace could have made a bad decision by waiving off guard Wade Baldwin IV and forward Rade Zagorac in the 2017-18 regular season roster. Both of them playing in all preseason games and did exceptionally well.
Now theGrizzlies’ roster stands at 17 players, which includes two-way players Kobi Simmons and Vince Hunter who will be eligible to play for both the Grizzlies main team and the team’s NBA G League affiliate- the Memphis Hustle.
Jarell Martin scored 20 points and made 7 rebounds in the preseason win against the Pelicans and will be leading the attack once again along with Marc Gasol and Mike Conley in the regular season bout on Wednesday.
