Top Marcos Louzada Silva News

  • Trail Blazers' Didi Louzada: Starting in finale

    Louzada is starting Sunday's game against the Jazz, Jay Allen of NBC Sports Northwest Rip City Radio 620 reports.

    Louzada will make his first start of the year in Sunday's regular-season finale. He's averaged 5.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game across his last six appearances.

  • Trail Blazers' Didi Louzada: Sticking in rotation

    Louzada finished with three points (1-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and one rebound across 13 minutes Sunday in the Trail Blazers' 113-92 loss to the Spurs.

    After a prolonged absence while he recovered from the left knee surgery he underwent Feb. 4, Louzada has suited up in three straight games for the Trail Blazers, playing between 11 and 17 minutes in all of those contests. With Portland having already shut down several key players for the season, Louzada should stick in the rotation for Portland's final four contests of 2021-22, though he likely won't see much of an uptick in playing time.

  • Trail Blazers' Didi Louzada: Active Wednesday

    Louzada (knee) is available for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Louzada will suit up as expected after being considered probable for his return from February knee surgery. He appeared in two games for the Pelicans early in the season and will make his debut for the Blazers against his former team.

  • Trail Blazers' Didi Louzada: Probable Wednesday

    Louzada (knee) is probable for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Assuming Louzada takes the floor, it'll be his Blazers debut and just his third appearance of the season, as he's missed time due to a suspension and left knee surgery. That said, he'll presumably be on a minutes limit, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect much.

  • Trail Blazers' Didi Louzada: Could return this season

    The Trail Blazers announced Monday that Louzada (knee) is expected to return to action before the end of the regular season.

    The 23-year-old has appeared in only five NBA games since joining the Pelicans late last season, and while it's still very much unclear where he fits into the Trail Blazers' future plans, it looks like they may try to get a look at him over the final two weeks of the regular season. Louzada has been sidelined since undergoing knee surgery on Feb. 4, but he's said to be in the final stages of his recovery. He has yet to debut for Portland, as he was acquired from New Orleans on Feb. 8 in the deal that sent CJ McCollum to the Pelicans.

  • Trail Blazers' Didi Louzada: Dealt to Portland

    The Trail Blazers acquired Louzada (knee) on Tuesday along with Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Josh Hart, Tomas Satoransky, a 2022 protected first-round pick and two future second-round picks in exchange for CJ McCollum, Larry Nance (knee) and Tony Snell, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    As a 23-year-old on a rookie deal, Louzada's developmental timeline theoretically aligns with Portland's rebuilding effort, but that doesn't mean that he's necessarily part of their long-term plans. Since making the jump from Australia to the NBA late in the 2020-21 season, Louzada made only five appearances for the Pelicans. A 25-game suspension earlier in the current season for violating the NBA's anti-drug program may have cost him some playing time, but the defensive-minded wing hadn't been included in the Pelicans' rotation anyway. Shortly after his suspension lapsed, Louzada was diagnosed with a torn meniscus in his left knee in late January and has since undergone surgery. Louzada also recently tested positive for COVID-19, but he's since cleared the health and safety protocols and will be able to report to Portland to have his rehab program monitored. Louzada is without an official timeline to return from surgery, but it's possible his absence extends through the remainder of the season.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Undergoes successful surgery

    Louzada announced via his personal Twitter on Friday that he underwent successful surgery on his left knee.

    Louzada suffered the injury while playing for the G League's Birmingham Squadron in mid-January. The surgery was likely delayed due to a stint in the NBA's health and safety protocols at the end of January, but he appears to have tested out and should be able to rehab at team facilities. The second-year pro has appeared in just two games at the NBA level this season -- a byproduct of not being a mainstay in coach Willie Green's rotation, along with the fact that he served a 25-game suspension earlier in the campaign for violating the league's anti-drug program. There's no timetable for his return, but the Pelicans may keep him sidelined for the rest of the season.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: In protocols

    Louzada (knee) was placed in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Saturday.

    Louzada will likely remain away from the team for a few days, but his placement in the protocols won't affect his timeline for a return. The second-year guard is considered out indefinitely after suffering a torn medial meniscus in his left knee earlier this month.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Out indefinitely with knee injury

    The Pelicans announced Sunday that Louzada is out indefinitely after suffering a torn medial meniscus in his left knee, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Louzada suffered the injury in question while playing for the G League's Birmingham Squadron on Friday. The Pelicans won't have a timeline for Louzada's return until he undergoes surgery, but the team has yet to determine when a procedure might take place. Regardless, Louzada will presumably be sidelined for at least a month, and quite possibly the remainder of the season. The second-year player has appeared in just two games at the NBA level this season, a byproduct of not being a mainstay in head coach Willie Green's rotation along with the fact that he also served as a 25-game suspension earlier in the campaign for violating the league's anti-drug program.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Sent to G League

    Louzada was assigned to the G League on Friday.

    Louzada recently cleared a suspension. He will get his feet wet in the G League before potentially joining the Pelicans' rotation.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Suspension over

    Louzada has cleared his 25-game suspension, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Louzada violated the NBA's anti-drug program and was suspended for 25 games. He's served his suspension and will be available for Thursday's game against the Clippers. That said, he's unlikely to play significant minutes.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Suspended for 25 games

    The NBA suspended Louzada on Friday for 25 games without pay for violating the NBA/NBPA's anti-drug program, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Selected in the second round of the 2019 NBA Draft, Louzada didn't sign with the Pelicans until last April and made his NBA debut at the tail end of the 2020-21 season. The 6-foot-5 wing hadn't been included in the New Orleans rotation through the first few weeks of the current season, but he was averaging 14.0 points and 3.0 rebounds with the G League's Birmingham Squadron. He'll now be sidelined until mid-January as a result of the suspension.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Recalled by Pelicans

    The Pelicans recalled Louzada on Sunday, according to Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com.

    Despite averaging 14.0 points and 3.0 rebounds across his previous two G League games, fantasy managers should not expect Louzada to replicate those tallies while being one of the Pelicans' fringe options.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Puts up 17 points

    Louzada notched 17 points (6-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three assists and a steal across 34 minutes in Friday's loss to Texas.

    Louzada made his season debut, and things couldn't have gone better for him, as he started and finished as one of the Squadron's best players. Considering he's not likely to crack the Pelicans' rotation any time soon, his best bet for playing time might be to remain at Birmingham as long as he can. It's only one game, but it seems he has what it takes to be a regular contributor at this level.

  • Pelicans' Marcos Louzada Silva: Set to re-up with Pelicans

    Louzada has agreed to terms on a four-year deal to return to the Pelicans, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    The Pelicans declined Louzada's team option last week, but the belief all along was that they would bring the Brazilian back on a new deal. Louzada appeared in only three games as a rookie, so it's very much unclear how involved me might be in Year 2.

  • Pelicans' Marcos Louzada Silva: Team option declined

    Louzada had his team option declined by the Pelicans on Saturday, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. However, John Hollinger of The Athletic speculates he'll ultimately be re-signed.

    Louzada appeared in three games for the Pelicans last season, with the rookie totaling eight points, three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 56 minutes. He could provide some depth for the Pelicans next season, but it's unlikely that he'll be fantasy-relevant.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Not on injury report

    Louzada is not listed on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against Charlotte.

    The 2019 second-round pick out of Brazil was supposed to debut earlier in the week, but he encountered a delay in joining the team and has yet to play his first NBA minute. It looks like Louzada will finally be available Sunday, though it's unclear how much -- if at all -- he'll factor into Stan Van Gundy's rotation.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Out Saturday

    Louzada is out Saturday against the Timberwolves, as he is not with the team.

    Louzada was expected to be available to make his debut Wednesday. However, he didn't see the court, and he's now not with the team. It's unclear when he might be available.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Ready to debut

    Louzada is expected to be available for Wednesday's game in Denver after the Pelicans officially announced his signing Tuesday.

    The 21-year-old from Brazil landed a multi-year deal from the Pelicans after he impressed as a wing defender during his time in the Australian National Basketball League over the past two seasons. The 6-foot-5, 210-pound swingman is unlikely to be a regular part of head coach Stan Van Gundy's rotation right off the bat, but he could get the opportunity to make his NBA debut Wednesday if the game turns non-competitive in the second half.

  • Pelicans' Didi Louzada: Set to join Pels

    Louzada is expected to finalize a multiyear contract with the Pelicans within the next week, Olgun Uluc and Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com report.

    A 2019 second-round pick, Louzada has spent the past two seasons in the Australian National Basketball League with the Sydney Kings since the Pelicans acquired his draft rights. The 21-year-old shot just 38.9 percent from the field in Australia this season while averaging 8.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game, but the Pelicans are intrigued by his potential as a wing defender. Though he's already arrived in the United States, the Pelicans may wait until April 27 to officially announce his signing while he navigates the NBA's COVID-19 intake testing protocol.
