Ajinca underwent surgery on his right patellar tendon Wednesday and is expected to be out 4-to-6 months.
The surgery will likely leave Ajinca out through the rest of the regular season, but he could rejoin the Pelicans for the postseason should the team qualify. Regardless, Ajinca was never expected to be featured in the team's frontcourt rotation this season barring an unusual number of injuries.
Ajinca (knee) won't play against the Kings on Friday.
Ajinca has been out all season after receiving bilateral injections in his right knee in October and was expected to be out only 4-to-6 weeks. When he returns, he won't likely have a large role at the center position since DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis will play the bulk of those minutes.
Ajinca (knee) will not be available Wednesday against the Nuggets.
Ajinca underwent bilateral injections in his right knee in October, but the team still has not provided any information about his recovery. As a result, we're left a little in the dark regarding when he may return.
Ajinca (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.
The Pelicans haven't provided any indication that Ajinca has ramped up his on-court activities since undergoing bilateral injections in his right knee in October, so it seems quite likely that his absence will stretch into December, if not longer. Once he's deemed fully healthy, Ajinca may not be included in the rotation, and won't be in store for significant minutes if he is.
Ajinca (knee) won't play Wednesday against the Spurs.
After requiring bilateral injections in his right knee in October to ease the pain he had been experiencing during training camp, Ajinca was expected to be sidelined for 4-to-6 weeks. Though the short end of that timetable has now arrived, it's unclear how close Ajinca is to returning to the court. Even once he's deemed healthy, Ajinca isn't certain to be included in the rotation with both Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins capable of handling all the center minutes most nights.
