Pelicans' DeMarcus Cousins: Hopes to be ready for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cousins (Achilles) said that he is hoping to be healthy by the start of training camp, Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated reports.

While it's still no guarantee that Cousins will be back with the Pelicans next season, the big man has a goal in mind regardless of where his free agency takes him this offseason. While there is still no official update on Cousins' timetable, his optimism this early on is surely an encouraging sign for his ongoing rehab. Expect updates on Cousins' recovery to continue to come in as the offseason progresses.

Pelicans' Frank Jackson: Expected back for Summer League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jackson (foot) is expected to return in time for Summer League with the Pelicans, Will Guillory of the Times-Picayune reports.

After undergoing surgery on his foot in September, Jackson ended up missing the entire 2017-18 campaign while going through the rehabilitation process. The former second-round pick out of Duke appears to be nearing the end of his recovery though, as Summer League typically ramps up in July and Jackson is fully expected to participate. What sort of workload he sees during competition at that point is unclear, but all indications now suggest Jackson will be 100 percent ahead of training camp. Jrue Holiday will be back with New Orleans, but both Rajon Rondo and Ian Clark are free agents, so their eventual decisions will impact whether or not Jackson sees decent minutes in his first healthy season.

Pelicans' Rajon Rondo: Limited by groin issues in Game 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rondo totaled seven points (3-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven assists, two rebounds and three steals across 21 minutes in New Orleans' 113-104 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series.

Rondo was limited by a sore groin in the second half, leading to his lowest minutes total of the postseason. The veteran guard may have finished up the series in lackluster fashion due to the limited playing time, but he undoubtedly made his mark during the playoffs. Rondo finished the postseason with averages of 10.3 points, 12.2 assists, 7.6 rebounds and 1.4 steals across 33.6 minutes over nine games, posting two double-doubles while dishing out double-digit dimes on six occasions overall. He'll head into free agency having generated his best shooting percentage (46.8) since the 2012-13 campaign, with a return to New Orleans also potentially in the cards.

Pelicans' E'Twaun Moore: Struggles from field in Game 5 defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Moore finished with 10 points (4-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four assists and two assists across 40 minutes during New Orleans' 113-104 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series.

Moore was far from efficient, but he managed to wrap up the postseason with six consecutive double-digit scoring efforts. Although he finished the series against the Warriors with an impressive 47.5 percent success rate from the floor, Moore did shoot under 40.0 percent twice overall, both losses for the Pelicans. Despite the disappointing conclusion to the season, Moore made big strides in his first opportunity as a full-time starter this past year, posting career bests in scoring (12.5), shooting percentage (50.8), rebounds (2.9) and steals (1.0).

Pelicans' Nikola Mirotic: Serves in complementary role during Game 5 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mirotic supplied 12 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 37 minutes during New Orleans' 113-104 loss to the Warriors in Game 5 of their Western Conference semifinal-round playoff series.

Mirotic's offensive usage took a hit on a night when Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday combined for 47 shot attempts. He was efficient with the shots he did take, scoring in double digits for the third time in the series and bouncing back from a nightmarish 14.3 percent shooting effort in Game 4. Mirotic was a welcome in-season addition to a Pelicans squad dealing with the loss of DeMarcus Cousins to a catastrophic Achilles injury, averaging 14.6 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.0 steal across 29.1 minutes over 30 games (11 starts).
