Holiday underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his core muscle injury and is expected to resume basketball activities in six weeks. Holiday has been sidelined for almost three weeks with an abdominal strain, and with the Pelicans' season essentially over and his absence giving the team the ability to look at some of its younger frontcourt players, Holiday will officially be shut down. Expect Holiday to be back to 100 percent for the start of training camp next season as he and the Pelicans enter an era that likely will be without Anthony Davis.
Holiday (abdomen) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks. No surprise here, as the Pelicans are yet to offer much in the way of a progress update on Holiday, who will miss his ninth consecutive contest with an abdominal strain. Expect Frank Jackson to continue to hold onto a significantly larger role so long as Holiday remains out.
Holiday (abdomen) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Houston. Holiday will miss his eighth-straight game due to a abdomen strain. Frank Jackson should continue to play a large role in Holiday's absence.
Holiday (abdomen) will remain out Wednesday against the Magic. The veteran will miss a seventh consecutive game as he continues to nurse a strained lower abdominal. Expect Elfrid Payton, who's been a triple-double machine of late, to continue serve as the Pels' primary playmaker.
Holiday (abdomen) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Mavericks. Holiday will miss his sixth straight game as he continues to deal with a strained abdomen. Frank Jackson will likely continue to see a larger role in his absence. Holiday should be considered questionable for Wednesday against the Magic.
