Injury-riddled Pelicans endure rough 1st season under Gentry

METAIRIE, La. (AP) After a frustrating debut season, New Orleans Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry is still waiting for a proper introduction to his full roster.

Coming off their first playoff appearance in four years, the Pelicans stood pat on personnel but plummeted in the Western Conference standings while sustaining a slew of injuries.

The year ended in symbolic fashion when only seven players were available for a 144-109 mauling in Minnesota that left New Orleans (30-52), the sixth-worst record in the NBA. The absences of players ran the count to 351 games missed due to injury or illness, one of the league's highest totals in the last decade.
