The New Orleans Pelicans will be short-handed Wednesday against the Los Angeles Clippers.

Zion Williamson (health and safety protocols) will not play, although it is unclear whether Zion Williamson tested positive for COVID-19 or came into close contact with someone who did.

Lonzo Ball (bilateral knee tendinopathy) had previously been ruled out of Pelicans-Clippers.

Also on the injury report Wednesday are JJ Redick (probable with right hamstring tightness) and Eric Bledsoe (questionable due to right eye irritation).
