  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Likely out at least 10-12 weeks

    Murphy (knee) underwent a successful partial meniscectomy and received a biologic injection in his left knee Thursday, and he's expected to return to basketball activities in 10-12 weeks.

    Murphy suffered his meniscus injury during a workout Tuesday and spent the last few days with the team's medical staff evaluating whether he'd need surgery. The team determined the need for a procedure Wednesday, and he'll shift his focus toward his recovery process following Thursday's surgery. The 23-year-old will be unavailable for the start of the regular season while recovering, but it's possible he's in the mix to return around mid-November. Dyson Daniels, Jordan Hawkins and Naji Marshall are candidates to see an uptick in minutes once the 2023-24 campaign gets underway.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Evaluating surgical options

    Murphy (knee) is dealing with at least a slight meniscus tear and is evaluating surgical options, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Murphy sustained a meniscus injury in his left knee Tuesday and was evaluating whether he'll require surgery, but it appears likely that he'll need some sort of procedure following his diagnosis. The team reportedly has "significant concern" regarding his injury, and his return timetable will depend on what type of surgery he ultimately requires. Depending on the procedure, he could return around the start of the regular season, but the team will continue to evaluate options this week.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Suffers meniscus injury

    Murphy suffered a meniscus injury to his left knee during a workout Tuesday and will undergo further testing before a decision is made regarding whether he'll require surgery, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    After a modest rookie campaign, Murphy took a big step forward in his second season in 2022-23. He was essentially a full-time starter for the Pelicans and averaged 14.5 points, 3.6 rebounds, 2.6 three-pointers, 1.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 31.0 minutes per game. Murphy's 3-and-D prowess was on full display, as he shot 40.6 percent on 6.3 three-point attempts per game. The potential return of Zion Williamson (hamstring) could result in Murphy's fantasy value taking a hit in 2023-24, and Murphy's knee injury certainly doesn't help his outlook either. With just over one month until the preseason begins, Murphy could be at risk of missing the start of the regular season, though it doesn't yet appear as though he's in danger of missing the entire campaign.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Posts 21 points in loss

    Murphy totaled 21 points (6-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one steal across 44 minutes during Wednesday's 123-118 Play-In Tournament loss to Oklahoma City.

    The Pelicans would have likely missed the Play-In Tournament without Murphy's contribution this season. Without Zion Williamson (hamstring), the team needed multiple players to take on new roles, and Murphy was a difference-maker throughout. The result was a dramatic spike over his rookie numbers. In his second season with New Orleans, Murphy started 65 games, averaging 14.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Goes for game-high 31 points

    Murphy ended Friday's 113-105 victory over the Knicks with 31 points (10-21 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 8-8 FT), three rebounds, two assists, one block and one steal across 39 minutes.

    Murphy did most of his damage in the first half with 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting from the field while also sinking all five of his attempts from the free-throw line. He knocked down just three of nine shot attempts in the second half but still finished with a game-high 31 points as the Pelicans took care of the Knicks at home. The shooting guard has now broken the 30-point mark in back-to-back contests while his eight makes from the foul line Friday also marked a season high.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Pops for 30 points, adds three steals

    Murphy posted 30 points (9-18 FG, 7-13 3Pt, 5-6 FT), four assists, three steals and two rebounds across 46 minutes in Wednesday's 138-131 overtime win over the Grizzlies.

    In one of the stranger statistical oddities, Murphy, Herbert Jones and CJ McCollum became the second trio of teammates in NBA history to score at least 30 points and hit at least five three-pointers in the same game, after the Knicks' triumvirate of Immanuel Quickley, Obi Toppin and Quentin Grimes achieved the feat about an hour earlier in New York's 138-129 win over Indiana. Though the defensive-minded Jones' big night appears to be more of an outlier, Murphy has emerged as a consistent third piece on offense for the Pelicans behind Brandon Ingram (24 points, 13 assists) and McCollum while Zion Williamson (hamstring) has been sidelined. Murphy has reached double figures in the scoring column in each of his 17 games since re-entering the starting five March 3, averaging 19.8 points, 4.1 triples, 3.4 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks over that stretch.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Breakout season continues

    Murphy finished Saturday's 122-114 victory over the Clippers with 19 points (4-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 9-11 FT), four rebounds, two blocks, two steals and one assist in 39 minutes.

    Murphy was tremendous in the victory, another in what has been a long line of strong performances. After a bumpy patch in January, Murphy has carved out a consistent role for himself, putting up top-20 value in nine-category leagues over the past month. Murphy's ability to score efficiently from anywhere on the floor, along with his contributions on the defensive end, make him a key piece for the Pelicans as they look to push for the sixth seed in the Western Conference.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Regains stroke in loss

    Murphy produced 21 points (6-9 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 120-109 loss to Golden State.

    After draining 10 threes last Saturday, Murphy suffered a huge regression Monday night, nailing only one deep ball in seven attempts. He was back on track during Tuesday's loss, going 4-of-6 from long range to record his seventh-best scoring total of the season. With Zion Williamson's (hamstring) playoff outlook in doubt, Murphy's role in the starting lineup should remain safe for now.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Drills 10 threes in blowout

    Murphy closed Saturday's 131-110 win over the Clippers with 32 points (11-14 FG, 10-12 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist, one block and two steals over 37 minutes.

    Murphy provided 10 of his team's 21 three-pointers in an absolute thrashing of the Clippers. While Murphy's tour-de-force seems a bit uncommon, he completed nine-three pointers against the Trail Blazers only two weeks ago. The Pelicans are barely clinging to a playoff berth, but they would be far worse off without Murphy, who has been an incredibly effective placeholder for Zion Williamson (hamstring).

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Will play Saturday

    Murphy (toe) is available to play Saturday against the Clippers.

    Murphy was trending toward being available, so this shouldn't surprise fantasy managers who have rostered the former Virginia standout. In his last 10 appearances, Murphy has averaged 18.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals over 36.0 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Expected to play Saturday

    Murphy (toe) said he is "feeling fine" and expects to play in Saturday's matchup with the Clippers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.

    Murphy was initially listed as questionable for Saturday's game with irritation in his left great toe but appears good to go. In his last 10 appearances, Murphy has averaged 18.7 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals over 36.0 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Questionable for Saturday

    Murphy is questionable for Saturday's game versus the Clippers due to left great toe irritation.

    This is unfortunate for the Pelicans, as Murphy has been on a tear from beyond the arc. Over the past 11 games, the sharpshooter has averaged 3.8 three-pointers per game. If he's unable to play Saturday, the Pelicans could turn to Josh Richardson and Naji Marshall to pick up the slack.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Records four steals in win

    Murphy finished with 19 points (7-14 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, one assist and four steals in 33 minutes during Thursday's 115-96 victory over the Hornets.

    Murphy's defensive prowess was on full display Thursday as he set a new season high with four steals. After a brief hiatus from the starting lineup at the end of February, the second-year wing has drawn 10 straight starts and scored in double figures during each of those contests, averaging 18.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks across 36.1 minutes. During that stretch, he's shot 49.2 percent from the field and 44.3 percent from deep.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Puts up quiet 17 points

    Murphy provided 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one block in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 119-84 win over the Spurs.

    Murphy scored in double figures for the ninth straight game, continuing what has been a resurgence of sorts. After a period in which he failed to score more than nine points in four of five games, Murphy has steadied, putting up top-25 value over the past two weeks. While his value is primarily built around being an efficient yet low-volume scorer, he can chip in on the defensive end from time to time, making him a must-roster player moving forward.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Scores 20 in defeat

    Murphy amassed 20 points (7-14 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block over 38 minutes during Tuesday's 123-108 loss to the Lakers.

    Murphy fell back to earth following his 41-point performance against the Trail Blazers on Sunday, but he still tied for the second-highest scoring total on the team during Tuesday's loss while also matching his highest steal mark of the season. The 22-year-old has started six consecutive matchups and has averaged 20.7 points and 4.5 rebounds in 37.0 minutes per game during that time.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Posts career-high 41 points

    Murphy totaled 41 points (13-20 FG, 9-14 3Pt, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal in 29 minutes during Sunday's 127-110 win over the Trail Blazers.

    With Brandon Ingram (ankle) missing his second game in a row, Murphy stepped into a bigger spotlight and ended up turning in a career-best performance, despite sitting out the final 10 and a half minutes of the fourth quarter due to the blowout. In so doing, Murphy became the fourth NBA player this season to produce 40 points in fewer than 30 minutes played. Even if Ingram continues to miss time, Murphy won't be able to replicate the performance he delivered Sunday, but the second-year wing has nonetheless established himself as a must-roster option in just about every league for the time being. In his five games since moving back into the starting five, Murphy is contributing across the board with averages of 20.8 points, 4.8 rebounds, 4.2 three-pointers, 2.2 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.0 steals in 36.8 minutes, all while shooting 53 percent from the field and 92.9 percent from the free-throw line.

  • Pelicans' Trey Murphy: Woeful shooting in loss

    Murphy racked up 15 points (5-12 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, two assists and one block in 41 minutes during Saturday's 110-96 loss to Oklahoma City.

    Murphy's overall stat line looks decent, but his shooting wasn't accurate, and he was particularly woeful from three-point range after making just two of his seven attempts. Regardless of the shooting woes, Murphy keeps finding ways to produce and has scored in double digits in nine of his last 10 starts.
