  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Questionable for training camp

    Alvarado suffered an ankle sprain during a workout over the weekend, putting his training camp availability at risk, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Alvarado was beginning to ramp up for the start of training camp after he missed the FIBA World Cup due to a lower leg injury he suffered at the end of the 2022-23 season, but he suffered an ankle sprain during a workout. At this point, it is unclear whether Alvarado will be available for training camp or the Pelicans' first preseason game on Oct. 10.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Sitting out FIBA World Cup

    The Puerto Rican national team announced Thursday that Alvarado (lower leg) won't participate in the upcoming FIBA World Cup, Andrew Lopez of reports.

    Alvarado will sit out the FIBA World Cup after the Pelicans wouldn't clear the 25-year-old guard to play in the event after he suffered a stress reaction in his right tibia in late February, which kept him sidelined for New Orleans' final 20 games of the 2022-23 season. According to Puerto Rico's general manager, former NBA guard Carlos Arroyo, Alvarado underwent an MRI earlier in July that revealed he hadn't fully healed from the injury. Alvarado's absence from the FIBA event is still believed to be a matter of extra caution on the part of the Pelicans, who anticipate that he'll be fully cleared ahead of training camp.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Won't suit up for Play-In

    Alvarado (leg) has been cleared to resume on-court activities, but he won't suit up for Wednesday's Play-In Tournament matchup against the Thunder and isn't expected to resume game action for at least one more week, Andrew Lopez of reports.

    Alvarado hasn't played since Feb. 27 due to a stress reaction in his right tibia, but it appears he's making solid progress and could be available if the Pelicans secure a spot in the playoffs. However, given his lengthy absence, it may be a stretch to expect Alvarado to play his usual role right away if he can return at some point this season.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Return timetable pushed back

    Recent imaging of Alvarado's right tibia has shown incremental improvement, and he will be re-examined in 2-3 weeks.

    Alvarado missed the last 10 games due to a stress fracture in his right tibia. His new timetable likely rules out a regular-season return, but he could retake the floor if the Pelicans make the Play-In Tournament. Kira Lewis and Dyson Daniels should continue to see extended minutes in Alvarado's absence.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Sidelined at least three weeks

    Alvarado will be re-evaluated in three weeks after being diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right tibia.

    Alvarado is far from guaranteed to retake the floor after his re-evaluation, but the team will at least measure where he's at when the date approaches. Without Alvarado available off the bench, the Pelicans will have to turn elsewhere for backup point guard duties. Among the options to see some added minutes are Kira Lewis, Dyson Daniels and Garrett Temple, while Josh Richardson could also slide over to point guard and open minutes for others.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Returns to bench

    Alvarado isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Ryan Ward of reports.

    CJ McCollum will replace Alvarado in the starting lineup Wednesday after missing the previous game with an ankle injury. Alvarado is averaging 8.9 points, 2.9 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 20.4 minutes across his previous 47 contests coming off the bench.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Added to starting five

    Alvarado is starting Monday's game against the Thunder, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Alvarado will step into the starting lineup at point guard in place of CJ McCollum (ankle). Alvarado's last start dates back to Jan. 29 against the Bucks, when he finished with 18 points, three rebounds, six assists and two steals in 29 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Returning to bench

    Alvarado is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game at Denver, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    The 24-year-old made a spot start Sunday with CJ McCollum (thumb) and Brandon Ingram (toe) inactive and posted 18 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six assists and three rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes, but he'll shift back to the bench Tuesday with McCollum and Ingram back in the lineup. Alvarado is averaging 9.2 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.0 steals in 20.9 minutes when coming off the bench this season.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Posts 18 points in starting role

    Alvarado closed Sunday's 135-110 loss to the Bucks with 18 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six assists and three rebounds and two steals over 29 minutes.

    With CJ McCollum (thumb) and Brandon Ingram (toe) sidelined, Alvarado stepped into the starting five after appearing off the bench in each of his previous 10 contests. Though he shot poorly from the field, Alvarado's strong showings from three-point range and the free-throw line enabled him to finish with his best scoring total since Dec. 9. The 24-year-old has shown the ability to put up solid numbers across the board when given extended run, but if McCollum is back in action for Tuesday's game in Denver, Alvarado could see his playing time drop back into the 20-to-25-minute range.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Starting Sunday

    Alvarado is starting Sunday's game against the Bucks.

    With CJ McCollum (thumb) sidelined for Sunday's matchup, Alvarado will step into the starting lineup for the first time since Jan. 7. Over eight starts this season, he's averaged 10.0 points, 4.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.9 steals in 27.6 minutes per game.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Scores 17 points off bench

    Alvarado finished Tuesday's 99-98 loss to the Nuggets with 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt), one rebound and three assists over 27 minutes.

    Alvarado bounced back with an extremely efficient performance Tuesday following a 1-for-8 outing in his previous appearance. The backup point guard has now scored in double figures in four of his past five games and is averaging 11.6 points, 2.8 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 27.6 minutes during that stretch. However, with Brandon Ingram (toe) set to return Wednesday, Alvarado could see his role slightly decrease moving forward.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Rounds out stat line in loss

    Alvarado finished with 17 points (6-15 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes in Friday's 123-110 loss to the Magic.

    Alvarado's playing time has been on the rise of late, with the second-year guard reaching the 30-minute mark in three of his past four contests while averaging 11.3 points, 3.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks over that stretch. If Alvarado can maintain that level of playing time, he would have some appeal in 12-team category leagues, but he'll be a prime candidate to lose some minutes whenever the Pelicans clear Brandon Ingram (toe) or Zion Williamson (hamstring) to play again.

  • Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Tallies five assists, three steals

    Alvarado ended Monday's 113-103 loss to Cleveland with 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and three steals across 34 minutes.

    Alvarado had one of his better games in recent memory, logging a season-high 34 minutes in the loss. Seen as a steals specialist, Alvarado had been struggling on the defensive end prior to the last couple of games, recording a combined two steals across seven games. He remains a streaming consideration in standard formats, but as we have seen lately, there is an element of risk associated with him.
