Pelican’s Jose Alvarado sprains ankle in workout, could miss chunk of training camp


New Orleans Pelicans v New York Knicks

The New Orleans Pelicans — a team snake bit by injuries the past couple of seasons — already will be without Trey Murphy III through training camp and the start of the season following surgery to repair a torn left meniscus.

Now add guard Jose Alvarado to the injury list weeks before training camps open, he has suffered a sprained ankle, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.

The basketball gods just seem to have it in for the Pelicans, who enter a make-it-or-break-it season with Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and CJ McCollum. This is a rough way to start.

Alvarado is a pesky reserve point guard who averaged nine points a game for the Pelicans last season, but that’s not what he is known for — Grand Theft Alvarado is one of the NBA’s great shows.

Exactly how long Alvarado will be out remains to be seen, but this sucks for Pelicans fans.
