Pelicans, Rockets looking to get back on track on Sunday

The Western Conference standings paint a picture of optimism for the New Orleans Pelicans, but the current state of their injury-ravaged roster offers a far more bleak image of the present. While the Pelicans entered Saturday just 1.5 games behind the Golden State Warriors for a position in one of the postseason play-in series, their rotation doesn’t provide much room for hope. New Orleans, set to face the host Houston Rockets on Sunday, dropped both games of a back-to-back against the Orlando Magic and Atlanta Hawks with three starters sidelined by injuries: forwards Zion Williamson (thumb) and Brandon Ingram (foot), and guard Lonzo Ball (hip).
