Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Steps up late in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton tallied 26 points (10-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 14 assists, six rebounds, three blocks and one steal across 39 minutes in the Pelicans' 133-129 win over the Kings on Sunday.

Payton saw a nice boost in usage with both Anthony Davis (back) and Julius Randle (rest) out of action Sunday. The veteran point guard was outstanding in the crucial closing stretch of the game, scoring 12 of his 25 points over the final 3:30 of the contest. Payton now has back-to-back double-doubles following a 1-for-8 clunker against the Hornets last Wednesday.

Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Double-doubles in OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton contributed 14 points (6-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt), 12 assists, five rebounds and two steals across 43 minutes in the Pelicans' 133-126 overtime loss to the Suns on Friday.

It was a typically full stat line for the veteran, who continues to deliver strong production as the season winds down. Friday's performance was also a welcome resurgence for Payton, who'd turned in a 1-for-8 clunker from the field against the Hornets on Wednesday. Unless coach Alvin Gentry opts to go a different direction in the last two games, Payton should log a solid amount of minutes in that pair of remaining contests.

Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Scores 16 points Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton ended with 16 points (7-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine assists, four rebounds, and one block in 36 minutes during Thursday's 121-118 victory over the Kings.

Payton continues to struggle with an ongoing wrist injury but played through it to finish with 16 points and nine assists in Thursday's victory. Given his disrupted season, the Pelicans likely want to see how Payton fits next to some of their younger players. As long as he is on the court, Payton will provide both assists and rebounds as well as a smattering of points. There is a decent chance he is listed as questionable heading into their next game and owners will simply have to hope he continues to battle through.

Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton (wrist) will play Thursday against the Kings.

Payton was initially deemed probable, so the final call doesn't come as a surprise. With Frank Jackson (concussion) out, Payton will be joined in the backcourt by Ian Clark.

Pelicans' Elfrid Payton: Tabbed as probable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Payton is probable for Thursday's matchup against the Kings due to a right wrist contusion.

Payton played through the injury during Tuesday's loss to the Hawks, totaling 11 points over 25 minutes of action. It's probably just a precautionary action by the Pelicans to included their point guard on the injury report for Thursday but, because New Orleans is out of playoff contention, the team may elect to rest Payton. If that happens, Ian Clark will presumably start in his absence.
