UPDATE: Both Ball and Redick are available to play.

This hurts a bit of the value we like in Hart and Williams, but I still think Hart is in a good spot. Jrue Holiday is also a decent GPP play on DraftKings despite Ball and Redick returning. But obviously he has less appeal now.
UPDATE: Redick will play while Ball is a game-time decision Wednesday vs. the Timberwolves.
JJ Redick will play. Lonzo Ball is a game-time decision.— Christian Clark (@cclark3000) December 18, 2019
We had a feeling Redick would be back, but we’ll have to wait and see on Ball. I’d say he’s a risky DFS play at this point and there are better options on the other side of this game.
#Pelicans injury report - 12/18 at MIN:— Pelicans PR (@PelicansPR) December 18, 2019
PROBABLE: JJ Redick (Left Groin Soreness)
QUESTIONABLE: Lonzo Ball (Right Hip Contusion)
OUT: Darius Miller (Right Achilles Surgery), Zion Williamson (Right Knee Scope)
Redick is dealing with a groin issue and didn’t play last night vs. the Brooklyn Nets. Ball has a hip injury and is questionable after logging 35 minutes against the Nets, scoring 10 points with eight boards and four assists.

So with Redick back, Kenrich Williams ($3,700) will likely go back to the bench. But not so fast, if Ball is ruled out, we could see Jrue Holiday ($7,800), Redick and Williams all in the backcourt. We also could see Josh Hart ($5,300) pop into the starting lineup after playing 40 minutes last night. Either way, Hart should be involved. It’s a good matchup all around, so keep an eye on the status of Ball and Redick moving forward.
