* Anderson Varejao is questionable for tonight's game against the Pelicans with a left knee contusion. If he can't start, Mike Brown said Tyler Zeller would "most likely" start at center, but seemed to leave a small window open for starting either Henry Sims or sliding Tristan Thompson to center and starting either Earl Clark or Anthony Bennett. Let's be realistic though: Zeller will start. 

* The Pelicans have been without All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday for a couple weeks now. Holiday has a stress fracture in his right tibia. In nine starts since Holiday was injured, Brian Roberts is averaging 12.2 points, 3.9 assists and is shooting 49 percent. 

* The Cavs lost at New Orleans in November 104-100 when they blew a 12-point lead in the game's final five minutes.
