Fantasy Basketball Cash Draft Nuggets vs Pelicans
Dominate your competition with our Fantasy Basketball Cash Draft, create the winning lineup at Fanpicks.com. The Denver Nuggets (32-4) travel to Louisiana to face the New Orleans Pelicans (27-47) at Smoothie King Center.
The Nuggets come into this game victorious in three of their last five and the most recent win over the Memphis Grizzlies secured a winning month of March. That’s the first month over the .500 record line that this team has had all season and it shows how much they have grown. Youngsters like Emmanuel Mudiay and Nikola Jokic are both especially talented and may be two of the five best rookies in the league this season.
All the talk in New Orleans is about how they are a cursed franchise and there may be some reality to that with the injuries they have suffered. They are now without Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson, Jrue Holiday, Tyreke Evans and Norris Cole for the rest of the season. All of these players have had injury question marks in the past though, so it may not be a matter of luck as much as it’s substandard management. Having this many injury prone players on one roster is too risky and this sort of year shows the worst case scenario. With how shorthanded the Pelicans are, look for them to be a small underdog in this confrontation.
