New Orleans Pelicans rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker reportedly grew 3/4 of an inch during the NBA hiatus, according to ESPN’s Andrew Lopez.

Alexander-Walker was listed at 6-foot-5, but now, he is likely around 6-foot-6 with shoes on.

At 21, Alexander-Walker might not be done growing.

In 41 games this season, he is averaging 5.1 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game (12.2 minutes per game).
