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.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Effective off bench again in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas finished with 10 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with seven rebounds, four assists, two blocked shots and a steal over 22 minutes in Friday's 119-103 win against the Spurs.

The Lithuanian big man has pieced together a three-game streak with 10 or more points, averaging 14.7 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 blocked shots during the stretch. The 7-footer played plenty of minutes despite the fact Anthony Davis (quadriceps) was back in action. He appears to be carving out a decent role in the New Orleans rotation, and he is worth a look in deeper fantasy formats.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Scores in double-figures for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Motiejunas registered 10 points (4-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds across 17 minutes during a 114-105 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

Motiejunas reached double figures in scoring for the second consecutive contest, which marks the first time he's accomplished that feat in his brief time with the team. Anthony Davis (quad) was forced to leave Wednesday's game, so Motiejunas could be looking at increased minutes if the Pelicans' star is forced to miss any time. Motiejunas gets a tough matchup with the Spurs on Friday.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Plays just eight minutes in loss to Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas registered zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across eight minutes during a 98-95 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Monday's game marked the second straight in which Motiejunas received single-digit minutes after he had averaged 18.3 minutes per game over the previous three outings. He has extremely minimal value with this kind of playing time as he has scored a total of two points over the last two contests. However, Anthony Davis was forced to leave the loss to Indiana in the third quarter after taking a hard fall, and if he misses time, Motiejunas could see his minutes jump back up again.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Scores 11 points in season debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas provided 11 points (4-5 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists and one steal across 20 minutes in a 117-108 loss to the Celtics on Saturday.

It was an impressive season debut for Motiejunas, who played a sizable role while working as a backup center behind Anthony Davis. He also saw about half of his time alongside Davis, with his three-point shooting skills making that arrangement tenable. It's not likely that the Pelicans have much more room to bump up Motiejunas' playing time beyond what he received Saturday, but even if he sticks in a 20-minute role, the seven-footer could maintain fantasy value in very deep formats.
