NEW ORLEANS: LAST SEASON: 33-49, finished tied for 12th in Western Conference.
COACH: Alvin Gentry (fifth season with Pelicans, 145-183; 17th season overall, 480-553).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Lonzo Ball (9.9 ppg), G Jrue Holiday (21.2), F Brandon Ingram (18.3), F Zion Williamson (rookie), C Derrick Favors (11.8).
KEY LOSSES: F Anthony Davis, F Julius Randle, G Elfrid Payton.
KEY ADDITIONS: F Williamson, F Ingram, G Ball, C Favors, G J.J. Redick, G Nickeil Alexander-Walker, C Jaxson Hayes.
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Williamson was the No. 1 overall pick in last summer's NBA draft, was a highlight machine at Duke and has looked fearless in his first NBA preseason ' taking the ball to the hoop against the best interior defenders in the league and scoring more than 20 points in multiple games. The 6-foot-6, 285-pound rookie is a social media phenomenon and filling arenas everywhere he goes. But the additions of Ball and Redick will be important to New Orleans as well.
OUTLOOK: Of the Pelicans' four new starters brought in by Griffin, one was picked No. 1 overall this summer and two Ingram and Ball were picked second overall within the previous three years by the Lakers before being packaged with Josh Hart and draft picks in a trade sending Davis to Los Angeles. Combined with savvy veterans like Holiday and Favors, not to mention Redick off the bench, there are high hopes in New Orleans that the Pelicans are trending upward and might even contend for a playoff spot this season. The Pelicans also expect 2019 first-round picks Alexander-Walker and Hayes to contribute this season.
PHOENIX: LAST SEASON: 19-63, finished 15th in Western Conference.
COACH: Monty Williams (first season with Suns, sixth season overall, 173-221).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Ricky Rubio (12.7 ppg), G Devin Booker (26.6), F Kelly Oubre Jr. (15.2), F Dario Saric (10.6), C Deandre Ayton (16.3)
KEY LOSSES: F T.J. Warren, G/F Josh Jackson
KEY ADDITIONS: Rubio, Saric, G/F Cameron Johnson, F Frank Kaminsky III, F Cheick Diallo, G Ty Jerome
PLAYERS TO WATCH: The Suns are trying to build a winning team around the core of Ayton and Booker, who are both still young and put up big numbers last season. The 7-foot-1 Ayton averaged a double-double in his rookie season while shooting nearly 59 percent from the field. Booker averaged 26.6 points per game and nearly seven assists. Oubre was a pleasant surprise after joining the team midway through last season, scoring nearly 17 points per game after the trade and playing good defense. Rubio gives the Suns an experienced point guard who should help Ayton, Booker and Oubre get better scoring chances. Rubio's presence also allows Booker to play off the ball and focus on scoring.
OUTLOOK: The Suns should be much better than the 19-win version of a year ago. Rubio's presence along with the input first-year coach Monty Williams should give the starting lineup some discipline and structure. Phoenix's ceiling depends on the development of Ayton and Booker. If the two can develop into All-Star caliber players than there might be something brewing in the desert. The major problem is the Western Conference is still stacked with good teams, so a move into the playoffs feels a little far-fetched this season.
Banged-up teams battle as Pelicans visit Suns

The Phoenix Suns will attempt to recover from their first two-game losing streak of the season when they host the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday.

The Suns played short-handed in losses to the Boston Celtics on Monday and the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday.

The Pelicans know that missing-persons feeling all too well.

After a rocky start with No. 1 overall draft pick Zion Williamson and assorted other players out injured, New Orleans has won three of four as it prepares for the first game of a three-game road trip that concludes against the Utah Jazz and the Los Angeles Clippers.

"We haven't had the lineups that we need to have in order to be able to utilize our depth," said Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry, the last coach to get the Suns into the playoffs, in the 2009-10 season.

"The guys that we feel like we needed off the bench are now either starting or playing major minutes. We didn't anticipate that. It's kind all a part of what happens in the league. We just have to continue to play until we get our roster healthy, and we'll see what happens from there."

New Orleans guard Lonzo Ball has missed the past six games with a groin injury, and his status for Thursday's game was unknown. Brandon Ingram, who is averaging a team-high 25.4 points this season, missed four games with a knee injury before returning to contribute 21 points, seven rebounds and five assists in a 115-104 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

The Pelicans had only nine players available in their 108-100 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday, when rookie center Jaxson Hayes had 10 points and 10 rebounds in his first start.

Veteran guard Jrue Holiday has been a stabilizing force, averaging 17.6 points, 7.3 assists and 5.1 rebounds. He had 22 points, nine assists and eight rebounds against Golden State and then 22 points and 10 assists against Portland.

Suns point guard Ricky Rubio missed Phoenix's 99-85 loss to Boston because of back spasms, and he did not play the second half of the team's 120-116 loss at Sacramento after gutting out 16 minutes in the first half. Center Aron Baynes sustained a hip contusion against the Celtics and did not the Kings.

Baynes won't play Thursday, while Rubio's status is questionable.

The absence of facilitator Rubio was especially noticeable at the offensive end. The Suns shot 40.2 percent against Boston, their lowest rate of the season. They hit 42.7 percent in Sacramento, where they fell behind by 26 before getting within three points with 14.1 seconds remaining.

"I wasn't surprised that we stayed in it and fought because that's who we are, that's who we've been and that's who we're going to be," Suns coach Monty Williams said, according to the Arizona Republic.

Phoenix rookie wing Cameron Johnson, the 11th player taken in the 2019 draft, had a season-high 18 points while hitting four of the Suns' 12 3-pointers. Johnson played 26 minutes, as the Suns went to a smaller lineup and used a zone defense to get back into the game. Reserve Frank Kaminsky started at center and had 17 points and three 3-pointers in 23 minutes.

The Suns had 24 and 22 assists in the last two games, two of their five lowest totals of the season.

"To me, sharing the ball is a huge part of our program," Williams said. "The component that gets lost in all of this is making shots. We all want to share the ball, we all want to have high assists. But you also have to make shots."
