Date:

E'Twaun Moore (ankle) is probable for Wednesday against the Blazers.

This is a mild surprise after Moore missed the last two games. Jordan Crawford and Quinn Cook have benefited the most in those two, so they both figure to take hits, assuming Moore is good to go. Crawford should still be considered as a solid play for DFS.
Apr 12 - 4:02 PM

E'Twaun Moore (ankle) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Fantasy owners probably saw this coming because Moore was downgraded from probable to questionable earlier in the day. This news benefits Jordan Crawford, Quinn Cook and Tim Frazier.
Apr 11 - 9:35 PM

E'Twaun Moore (ankle) has been downgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game against the Lakers.

If Moore is forced to join Anthony Davis (knee) and DeMarcus Cousins (Achilles) on the sidelines tonight, that would leave New Orleans with just eight healthy bodies. Jrue Holiday and Jordan Crawford will be forced into heavy minutes tonight if Moore can't give it a go, and both those guys will be busy on the offensive end sans The Brow and Boogie. Check back for official confirmation on Moore's status closer to tip-off.
Apr 11 - 4:38 PM

E'Twaun Moore (left ankle sprain) is probable for Tuesday's game vs. the Lakers.

This means his twisted ankle that he suffered on Friday will have only sidelined him for one game. Jrue Holiday is still active and Jordan Crawford is playing really well, so Moore's ceiling isn't the greatest. There should be better options on your wire. Plus, the Pelicans are wanting to get a look at Quinn Cook and Tim Frazier.
Apr 10 - 6:08 PM

E'Twaun Moore (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. Golden State.

Moore twisted his ankle in Friday's loss to the Nuggets and was unable to return to the game. Jordan Crawford ended up playing 30 minutes on Friday and will likely log 30-plus minutes again on Saturday. Quinn Cook, who just signed a two-year deal with the Pelicans, should see additional minutes as well. Tim Frazier was a DNP-CD on Friday, but likely will be back in the rotation.
Apr 8 - 11:19 AM

E'Twaun Moore (ankle) did not return on Friday against the Nuggets.

The Pelicans want to look at their young guys, so there's a chance they just shut Moore down. He finished with 10 points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers in 18 minutes.
Apr 8 - 12:53 AM

E'Twaun Moore (right ankle) is questionable to return on Friday.

He stepped on Jamal Murray's foot on a fast break and turned his ankle. Moore was able to play through it for a little, but he limped back to the locker room under his own power. Jordan Crawford will get plenty of Steez the rest of the way.
Apr 7 - 10:39 PM

E'Twaun Moore will start Friday vs. the Nuggets.

Moore will replace Tim Frazier in the starting lineup. Moore has started 21 games this season and is averaging 10.6 points, 3.0 assists and 2.2 rebounds in 27.0 minutes in those 21 contests. He can be left on waivers.
Apr 7 - 7:40 PM

E'Twaun Moore scored 18 points in 35 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, going 8-of-12 from the field with one 3-pointer, one rebound and one assist.

It wasn't exactly a well-rounded fantasy line, but Moore was very good tonight and he helped make the Heat sweat in the fourth quarter. He's a solid role player in real life, but is best suited to 14-team leagues and deeper.
Mar 15 - 11:48 PM

E'Twaun Moore scored two points with three assists and one block in 25 minutes against the Hornets on Saturday.

The Pelicans have found themselves another shooter in Jordan Crawford, so they won't be needing Moore nearly as much to space the floor. Moore is a drop in most cases.
Mar 11 - 10:39 PM

E'Twaun Moore led the Pelicans' bench on Sunday with 13 points, making 5-of-9 shots with two 3-pointers, two assists, one rebound, one steal and one block in 31 minutes.

The Pelicans' offense is completely dominated by the trio of Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins and Jrue Holiday. Beyond those three, the only players to score tonight were Moore, Dante Cunningham (six points), Solomon Hill (five points), Tim Frazier (three points) and Hollis Thompson (one point). In their first four games together, AD and Cousins had an astounding combined usage rate of 69.7 percent, and New Orleans' role players just aren't trustworthy in fantasy leagues.

E'Twaun Moore scored 11 points off the bench against the Pistons on Wednesday, adding one rebound, three assists, and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

The Pelicans may opt to keep Moore off the bench, which actually isn't the worst idea. There is just no usage available in the first unit with DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday, so getting any minutes away from that trio would help his shot total. Just keep an eye on Moore in deeper leagues.
Mar 1 - 11:52 PM

E'Twaun Moore (personal) returned on Sunday with 10 points, four assists and two 3-pointers in 27 minutes vs. the Thunder.

Moore came off the bench tonight but it sounds like the SG spot is in flux. "We’re contemplating [whether he will start]," Alvin Gentry said before the game. "He’s played extremely well off the bench. We’ll look at the rotations and see what works best for our team." Gentry referred to Moore as an "extra ballhandler" for the team, so he might be leaning toward keeping him in the second unit.

E'Twaun Moore (personal) will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Thunder.

Moore was out of Saturday's game for personal reasons, but he is back and should see a healthy amount of minutes off the bench. Hollis Thompson will make the start at the two for the second consecutive game.
