Bluiett (thumb) is listed as out for Sunday's game against Sacramento.
Bluiett has yet to take the court this season. With a single game remaining after Sunday, it's exceedingly unlikely Bluiett makes his debut this year.
Bluiett underwent thumb surgery on Friday so this move will allow him to rehab with New Orleans. The 24-year-old is without an official timetable for his return, though he shouldn't be expected to be available for the near future. Bluiett is still looking to make his NBA debut this season.
Blueitt had surgery to repair a ligament in his thumb Friday, Andrew Lopez of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Blueitt has been struggling with a thumb injury of late, and he was forced to go under the knife to resolve the issue. A timetable for his return has yet to be released, although an update on his status moving forward should surface sometime soon.
