    Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Steps up late in win

    Elfrid Payton tallied 26 points (10-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 14 assists, six rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 39 minutes in the New Orleans Pelicans' 133-129 win over the Kings on Sunday.Payton saw a nice boost in usage with both Anthony Davis (back) and Julius Randle (rest) out of action Sunday. The veteran point guard was outstanding in the crucial closing stretch of the game, scoring 12 of his 25 points over the final 3:30 of the contest. Payton now has back-to-back double-doubles following a 1-for-8 clunker against the Hornets last Wednesday.

    Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Double-doubles in OT loss

    Elfrid Payton contributed 14 points (6-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 12 assists, five rebounds and two steals across 43 minutes in the New Orleans Pelicans' 133-126 overtime loss to the Suns on Friday.It was a typically full stat line for the veteran, who continues to deliver strong production as the season winds down. Friday's performance was also a welcome resurgence for Payton, who'd turned in a 1-for-8 clunker from the field against the Hornets on Wednesday. Unless coach Alvin Gentry opts to go a different direction in the last two games, Payton should log a solid amount of minutes in that pair of remaining contests.

    Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Scores 16 points Thursday

    Elfrid Payton ended with 16 points (7-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, and one block in 36 minutes during Thursday's 121-118 victory over the Kings.Payton continues to struggle with an ongoing wrist injury but played through it to finish with 16 points and nine assists in Thursday's victory. Given his disrupted season, the New Orleans Pelicans likely want to see how Payton fits next to some of their younger players. As long as he is on the court, Payton will provide both assists and rebounds as well as a smattering of points. There is a decent chance he is listed as questionable heading into their next game and owners will simply have to hope he continues to battle through.

    Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Tabbed as probable Thursday

    Elfrid Payton is probable for Thursday's matchup against the Kings due to a right wrist contusion.Payton played through the injury during Tuesday's loss to the Hawks, totaling 11 points over 25 minutes of action. It's probably just a precautionary action by the New Orleans Pelicans to included their point guard on the injury report for Thursday but, because New Orleans is out of playoff contention, the team may elect to rest Payton. If that happens, Ian Clark will presumably start in his absence.

    Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Will play Tuesday

    Elfrid Payton (wrist) will get the start at point guard for Tuesday's stilt against the Hawks, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.Payton was upgraded to probable earlier in the day, so no surprise here. His production has dipped recently, but that is to be expected after a five-game stretch of triple-doubles, but he figures to be in a nice spot against the Hawks.

    Elfrid Payton (wrist) is now listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.Payton's spot on the injury report for Tuesdays game appears to have just been precautionary, as it the point guard is now on track to suit up against the Hawks. Payton's production has dipped since the five-game stretch of triple-doubles, but he should still get plenty of usage as the starting point guard on a banged up New Orleans Pelicans team.

    Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Listed as questionable

    Elfrid Payton (wrist) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.Payton is yet to miss any time, but he's still plagued by a bruise on his right wrist, so the New Orleans Pelicans will keep an eye on him as Tuesday's game approaches. Payton strung together five straight triple-doubles between Mar. 10 and Mar. 18, but his production has fallen off over the last two contests. Most recently, Payton tallied four points, four rebounds, eight assists and five turnovers in Sunday's loss to Houston.

    Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Quiet in blowout loss

    Elfrid Payton managed seven points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 24 minutes during Wednesday's 119-96 loss to the Magic.Payton's streak of five straight triple-doubles came to an end in this one, as the New Orleans Pelicans trailed by 22 at halftime and 31 at the end of the third quarter. Given that the score was so lopsided, Payton was unsurprisingly rested down the stretch. He'll now have three full days off prior to Sunday's matchup with the Rockets.
