The New Orleans Pelicans will be without wing Josh Hart for a significant time with thumb injury.
Sources say Pelicans guard Josh Hart expected to miss significant time with a torn UCL in his right thumb.— Andrew Lopez (@_Andrew_Lopez) April 2, 2021
He played through the injury last night against Orlando but MRI results today showed the tear.
Hart was averaging 9.2 PPG/8.0 RPG/2.3 APG on the season before going down with injury. This will likely mean more minute for James Johnson—currently averaging 17 PPG—and Kira Lewis.
