Eric Bledsoe Ruled Out Wednesday

Eric Bledsoe is out for the Pelicans in their matchup against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Bledsoe appeared on the injury report with an eye injury. Playing in nine games this season for the Pelicans, he has averaged 30 minutes, 12 points, three rebounds and four assists.

Expect Brandon Ingram and Nickel Alexander-Walker to benefit from Bledsoe’s absence. Ingram, priced at $8,800 on FanDuel, is second in usage on the team, only behind Zion Williamson, at 28.8%. Williamson is also out of Wednesday’s matchup.

Alexander-Walker should step into a starting role. Priced at $3,800 on FanDuel, he provides extreme salary relief for lineups.

The Pelicans are a 9.5-point road underdog against the Clippers on FanDuel Sportsbook in a game with a 215.5 total.
