Donatas Motiejunas: Heading to China
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas has agreed to a one-year, $3 million contract with the Shandong Golden Stars of China, Tomas Langvinis of 15min reports.

Motiejunas spent 34 games on the Pelicans last season, posting 4.4 points and 3.0 rebounds across 14.1 minutes per game while shooting 41.3 percent from the field. His new deal is just for one season, so the possibility still remains that he comes back to the NBA next season if he performs well overseas.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Back out of rotation in Monday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas was listed as a DNP-CD for Monday's 108-100 loss against the Jazz.

Motiejunas didn't come off the pine despite the fact DeMarcus Cousins (ankle) was sidelined. Perhaps head coach Alvin Gentry didn't want to use him in back-to-back games, but Motiejunas looked good in Denver on Sunday when he posted 13 points and eight boards in 19 minutes. Gentry used just three players off his bench in the loss, with his starters logging heavy minutes.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Drops out of rotation Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 101-98 loss to the Spurs on Friday.

Coach Alvin Gentry ran a tight eight-man rotation in a close game Friday, leaving no room for Motiejunas, who only saw six minutes in the team's previous contest Wednesday against the Pistons. With a 27.3 percent mark from three-point range on the season, Motiejunas isn't providing the impact from beyond the arc the Pelicans expected, and his poor defense has generally made him a liability when he's taken the floor. Gentry might be content to explore different reserve options in the frontcourt at this point.

Pelicans' Donatas Motiejunas: Probable to return Sunday with shin laceration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Motiejunas is probable to return to Sunday's matchup against the Thunder with a left shin laceration, which will require stitches.

Though the big man suffered a fairly serious cut on his calf, he'll probably return to Sunday's game after getting stitches in the locker room. If he doesn't make it back to the floor, Alexis Ajinca and Dante Cunningham would likely pick up additional minutes.
