Los Angeles Clippers vs New Orleans Pelicans Odds: How Paul George's Absence Impacts the Odds

The Los Angeles Clippers are hosting the New Orleans Pelicans tonight in the play-in tournament. It's a win and in environment and the Los Angeles Clippers will be without one of their best players in Paul George.

Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Paul George has entered health and safety protocol and as a result will be unable to play tonight.

This is obviously a huge loss for Los Angeles. The 31-year-old Paul George was averaging 24.3 points per game, 6.9 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game in the regular season with the Clippers. Now, Reggie Jackson and Marcus Morris will be relied upon to take over as the best scorers on the floor for the Clippers in George's absence.

Before the news of the illness, the Los Angeles Clippers were given a 64% chance to win and advance and now after the news, they are given a 50% chance. Oddsmakers view it as a coin flip chance that they are able to win on their home court without their best player.

It's been four years since the Pelicans made the playoffs. Will that streak come to an end now or will the Clippers be able to find a way to win?
