Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Back out of rotation in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas was listed as a DNP-CD for Monday's 108-100 loss against the Jazz.

Motiejunas didn't come off the pine despite the fact DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) was sidelined. Perhaps head coach Alvin Gentry didn't want to use him in back-to-back games, but Motiejunas looked good in Denver on Sunday when he posted 13 points and eight boards in 19 minutes. Gentry used just three players off his bench in the loss, with his starters logging heavy minutes.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Drops out of rotation Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 101-98 loss to the Spurs on Friday.

Coach Alvin Gentry ran a tight eight-man rotation in a close game Friday, leaving no room for Motiejunas, who only saw six minutes in the team's previous contest Wednesday against the Pistons. With a 27.3 percent mark from three-point range on the season, Motiejunas isn't providing the impact from beyond the arc the Pelicans expected, and his poor defense has generally made him a liability when he's taken the floor. Gentry might be content to explore different reserve options in the frontcourt at this point.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Probable to return Sunday with shin laceration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas is probable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Thunder with a left shin laceration, which will require stitches.

Though the big man suffered a fairly serious cut on his calf, he'll probably return to Sunday's game after getting stitches in the locker room. If he doesn't make it back to the floor, Alexis Ajinca and Dante Cunningham would likely pick up additional minutes.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Puts up seven points, eight boards Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas recorded seven points (2-6 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 22 minutes in a 105-99 loss to the Kings on Sunday.

Motiejunas has seen his playing time pick up in the last three contests, with the big man seeing at least 19 minutes in each game. Even so, his averages of 4.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 steal during that stretch don't give much of a compelling case to go out and grab him on the waiver wire in deeper leagues where he's available. It may take an extended absence to Anthony Davis before Motiejunas makes much of an impression in fantasy circles.
