Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Will not play

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.

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.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Questionable to return
Alvarado is questionable to return to Wednesday's game against the 76ers due to a right ankle injury.
While Alvarado still has a chance of returning to Wednesday's tilt, it's a concerning sign that the injury is to the same ankle that kept him out of the first 13 games of 2023. If he can't return, expect Dyson Daniels and Jordan Hawkins to see more action, while Kira Lewis could crack the rotation.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Scores five points in debut
Alvarado (ankle) posted five points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and three assists across 15 minutes in Monday's 129-93 win over the Kings.
Alvarado missed the Pelicans' first 13 games of the season while recovering from an ankle sprain, but he received the green light to make his debut Monday, albeit on a minute restriction. With the game turning into a blowout, the Pelicans didn't need to overextend Alvarado, who could gradually see his playing time creep up in the team's subsequent contests. Dyson Daniels and Jordan Hawkins are likely to see their respective minutes take hits moving forward with Alvarado back in the fold, though all three players could still make for low-end 12-to-14-team league options in category leagues until CJ McCollum (lung) and Trey Murphy (knee) are cleared to return to action....

Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Set to debut Monday
Alvarado (ankle) said that he'll play in Monday's game against the Kings, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Alvarado had been listed as questionable for Monday's matchup, but he'll be able to make his season debut after missing the Pelicans' first 13 games with a right ankle sprain. He'll likely face some sort of minutes restriction during his first game back in action, but once he's fully ramped up, Alvarado could be a candidate to challenge Dyson Daniels for the starting point guard role while the Pelicans await the return or CJ McCollum, who is recovering from a collapsed right lung....

Alvardo (ankle) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.
As expected, Alvardo has been downgraded from doubtful to out and will miss a 12th straight game due to start the campaign. However, coach Willie Green said it's possible the backup guard will make his season debut during the second half of New Orleans' back-to-back set versus Minnesota on Saturday.... See More ...

Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Doubtful Friday
Alvarado (ankle) is doubtful for Friday's game against the Nuggets.
Although Alvarado will likely remain out for Friday's matchup, it's at least encouraging that he's listed as doubtful on the team's initial injury report rather than being immediately ruled out. The Pelicans also face the Timberwolves in the second half of a back-to-back set Saturday, and it wouldn't be surprising if Alvarado is out for that matchup as well.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Out another 1-2 weeks
The Pelicans announced Wednesday that Alvarado (ankle) is expected to return to full team practice in 1-2 weeks.
Alvarado sprained his right ankle during an offseason workout but has progressed well. He's been doing light on-court work recently, and it's encouraging that he has a timetable for full participation in practice. He may be able to return to game action shortly after, but it wouldn't be surprising if he faced some restrictions once he's cleared to return.... See More ... See Less

Alvarado suffered his ankle injury during preseason and has yet to make his season debut. While the Pelicans said he would be re-evaluated by now, no update has been provided.

Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Out at least two more weeks
The Pelicans announced Tuesday that Alvarado recently experienced renewed discomfort in his right ankle and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Alvarado initially sprained the ankle during offseason workouts and wasn't able to log any action in the preseason as a result of the injury. Considering Alvarado had previously missed the final 19 games of the 2022-23 regular season while recovering from a stress reaction in his tibia and was forced to withdraw from playing for Puerto Rico in the FIBA Basketball World Cup this summer, the Pelicans will likely proceed cautiously with the third-year guard while he contends with another lower-body injury. Alvarado's absence for at least the first two weeks of the season could open the door for Kira Lewis to serve as the primary backup to starting point guard CJ McCollum.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Doesn't practice Monday
Alvarado (ankle) didn't participate in Monday's practice session, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Alvarado sustained a right ankle sprain in late September and was forced to miss the entire preseason. Although he practiced in a limited capacity late last week and has been targeting an Opening Night return, it appears increasingly unlikely that he'll be able to suit up for Wednesday's regular-season opener in Memphis. If he misses time to begin the regular season, Dyson Daniels and Kira Lewis could see increased work.... See More ... See Less

Alvarado (ankle) participated in non-contact portions of Thursday's practice session, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.
Alvarado missed the entire preseason due to a right ankle sprain that he sustained in late September, but the hope has been that he'd be ready for Opening Night against the Grizzlies on Oct. 25. While he'll presumably have to ramp up his intensity in practice before he's cleared to suit up, it's encouraging to at least see him practicing in a limited fashion.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Targeting Opening Night
Pelicans general manager Trajan Langdon said Monday that the hope is Alvarado (ankle) will be healthy for the team's regular-season opener in Memphis on Oct. 25, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
The point guard suffered a right ankle sprain and was given a 2-3 week timetable in late September, so it's positive to hear that he's still trending in the right direction. With CJ McCollum expected to run the point for the starting unit, Alvarado will compete with Dyson Daniels for backup minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Out for 2-3 weeks
Alvarado (ankle) is expected to return to basketball activities in approximately 2-3 weeks, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Questionable for training camp
Alvarado suffered an ankle sprain during a workout over the weekend, putting his training camp availability at risk, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
Alvarado was beginning to ramp up for the start of training camp after he missed the FIBA World Cup due to a lower leg injury he suffered at the end of the 2022-23 season, but he suffered an ankle sprain during a workout. At this point, it is unclear whether Alvarado will be available for training camp or the Pelicans' first preseason game on Oct. 10.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Sitting out FIBA World Cup
The Puerto Rican national team announced Thursday that Alvarado (lower leg) won't participate in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Alvarado will sit out the FIBA World Cup after the Pelicans wouldn't clear the 25-year-old guard to play in the event after he suffered a stress reaction in his right tibia in late February, which kept him sidelined for New Orleans' final 20 games of the 2022-23 season. According to Puerto Rico's general manager, former NBA guard Carlos Arroyo, Alvarado underwent an MRI earlier in July that revealed he hadn't fully healed from the injury. Alvarado's absence from the FIBA event is still believed to be a matter of extra caution on the part of the Pelicans, who anticipate that he'll be fully cleared ahead of training camp....
