Nicolo Melli managed six points (2-7 FG, 2-5 3PT) three rebounds and three blocks across 24 minutes in Thursday's 123-118 loss to the Thunder.
Melli has recorded at least one block in three consecutive games. He has been solid in Brandon Ingram's (ankle) absence, averaging 8.3 points, 6.0 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 2.3 triples and 1.7 blocks during that span. Melli is worth a deep-league stash until Ingram returns. The Pelicans next scheduled game is after the All-Star break is February 21st against the Trail Blazers.
