Pelicans' Quincy Pondexter: Likely out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Alvin Gentry acknowledged Friday that Pondexter (knee) is unlikely to return for the remainder of the regular season, ESPN.com's Justin Verrier reports. "[Pondexter] will be gearing toward the summer and next year, really," Gentry said.

Pondexter, who hasn't appeared in an NBA game since the 2014-15 postseason, required a third surgery on his left knee back in January and is still rehabbing. Though he's only 29 years old, the multiple setbacks Pondexter has endured with the knee seemingly put his career in jeopardy, but he'll still remain on the Pelicans' books for 2017-18, the final year of the four-year, $14 million contract extension he initially signed with the Grizzlies in the summer of 2014.

Pelicans' Omer Asik: Likely out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Alvin Gentry acknowledged Friday that Asik (illness) is likely to miss the remainder of the regular season, ESPN.com's Justin Verrier reports. "[Asik] will be gearing toward the summer and next year, really," Gentry said.

Asik has been held out since the All-Star break while recovering from a bacterial infection, which caused him to shed a significant amount of weight. It seems Asik is still having difficultly getting back in playing condition, and because the Pelicans haven't been relying on him as a rotation player since late December, there's little incentive to rush him back before the campaign draws to a close in mid-April. Asik, who still has three years remaining on the five-year, $57.7 million pact he inked with the Pelicans in July of 2015, averaged 2.7 points and 5.3 rebounds in 15.5 minutes per game over 31 appearances in 2016-17.

Pelicans' Omer Asik: Out Friday vs. Rockets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Asik has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Rockets.

Asik is still dealing with the lingering effects of a bacterial infection and will miss yet another game, as he's been sidelined since the All-Star break. He's yet to be given any timetable for a return and should continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis. His next opportunity to take the court will be Sunday against the Nuggets.

Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Shoots poorly versus Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holiday scored 11 points (5-17 FG, 1-6 3Pt) to go along with six assists, three rebounds and one steal across 41 minutes during Tuesday's 95-82 win over the Grizzlies.

Holiday came in having notched 40 total points on 51.5 percent shooting over his last two games, but he was unable to get his shot to fall in the face of the stern Memphis defense. Luckily he was able to make his usual contributions in other categories and the team coasted to a win on the back of a huge performance from DeMarcus Cousins. Holiday's scoring has been sporadic since Cousins arrived, but he continues to see plenty of looks most nights while chipping in for fantasy owners across the board.

Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Explodes for 41 points versus Grizzlies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins exploded for 41 points (14-27 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 8-9 FT) to go along with 17 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and two steals across 37 minutes during Tuesday's 95-82 win over the Grizzles.

Cousins shined brightest in a contest that featured several prominent big-men, notching his highest scoring output since joining the Pelicans thanks to excellent shooting numbers, particularly from long range and at the foul line. He also came through with his second-best rebounding performance since the trade while contributing multiple steals and multiple blocks for just the second time. Cousins' production has been a big more volatile of late but this is certainly a positive development in his quest to assimilate.
