  • Pelicans' Jameer Nelson: Excels off bench in win
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson turned in 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-8 3Pt), six assists, four rebounds and one block across 36 minutes in Thursday's 114-106 win over the Kings. Nelson put together his best game yet over his first three contests in a Pelicans uniform while establishing a high-water mark in minutes. The 35-year-old has back-to-back double-digit scoring outings as well, and if he retains a high-usage role off the bench, he's aptly capable of serving as a solid source of multi-category production in deeper formats.

  • Nelson is expected to play around 22-to-26 minutes during Tuesday's matchup against the Trail Blazers, Will Guillory of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Nelson made his Pelican debut on Sunday, posting five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), one rebound, five assists, one steal and one turnover across 24 minutes. He's expected to receive similar playing time once again on Tuesday, likely seeing minutes in the mid-20's. Nelson is currently slotted behind Jrue Holiday at point guard and should be one of the first guards off the bench in the backcourt.

  • Pelicans' Jameer Nelson: Available vs. Lakers
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson will be available for Sunday's game against the Lakers. Nelson was signed after he was let go by the Nuggets and should provide the Pelicans with some quality point guard depth in Rajon Rondo's absence following sports hernia surgery. He may not play much in his first game with the team, but he'll compete with the likes of E'Twaun Moore and Ian Clark for minutes as a primary ball-handler behind Jrue Holiday.

  • Nelson signed a one-year deal with the Pelicans on Saturday, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports. The Nuggets parted ways with Nelson earlier in the week to free up a roster spot, and the veteran was reportedly being pursued by a number of teams. He'll head to New Orleans, where he'll have an opportunity to immediately be a factor in a depleted point guard rotation that's currently without Rajon Rondo (hernia) and Frank Jackson (foot). Nelson could require some time to get up to speed, but once he's acquainted with the new system, expect the 35-year-old to compete for minutes with E'Twaun Moore and Ian Clark.

  • Jameer Nelson: Waived by Nuggets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Nelson was waived by the Nuggets on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Nelson was let go in order to make room for incoming free agent Richard Jefferson. The veteran point guard was set to begin the season third on the depth chart, which ultimately made him expendable. Entering his 14th season in the league, Nelson will now look for a new team looking for point guard depth and veteran leadership.
