Jrue Holiday (leg) said that he has no specific timetable for his return, and he remains out indefinitely.
After he missed half of last season with a similar injury, the Pelicans will likely proceed with extreme caution. Holiday should still be stashed in all leagues in the hope that he can return soon, but this report is a little troubling. In the meantime, Tyreke Evans will continue to run the point for New Orleans, while Eric Gordon will handle the ball more as well. Jan 28 - 11:50 AM

Jrue Holiday (leg) will miss the next 2-4 weeks with a stress reaction in his lower leg.

Not good. He missed half of the 2013-14 season due to a tibia fracture and it seems like this could be an aggravation. The Pelicans were somewhat secretive with Holiday's leg issue last season, so hopefully they're not doing it again. It'll be Tyreke Evans at point guard with Dante Cunningham starting at small forward. Holiday should still be stashed in fantasy leagues.

Jrue Holiday (ankle) is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Lakers.

Holiday has missed the Pelicans' last four games and it's a little worrisome that the team hasn't exactly been vocal about updates on the point guard. We'll update Holiday's status after Wednesday's shootaround, but his fantasy owners will want to prepare to be without him again on Wednesday while Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon would see the biggest fantasy value boost if Holiday does indeed sit.

Jrue Holiday (ankle) will not play against the Knicks on Monday.

For the second season in a row, the Pelicans are being fairly quiet on Holiday's leg injury, which is not a good sign. This injury is not considered to be serious like last season, but it's certainly possible he'll miss more games. Tyreke Evans will handle the point while Dante Cunningham will start. Expect to see more Eric Gordon, as well.

Jrue Holiday (ankle) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Raptors.

With Holiday sidelined, Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon, and Jimmer Fredette will all see an uptick in value. Evans and Gordon offer the most upside out of the group, and Evans will likely draw another start at point guard. Holiday is going to re-evaluated on Monday before the Pelicans' game against the Knicks, so we'll be monitoring his status closely. Stay tuned.

Jrue Holiday (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Raptors.

As far as we know the injury isn't serious, but the Pelicans will be cautious with him after he missed most of last season with a shin injury on the same leg. Check back before tip-off before plugging him into lineups, and expect Tyreke Evans to continue to run the show for New Orleans if Holiday sits this one out.

Jrue Holiday (ankle) will not suit up for Friday's game against the 76ers.

Tyreke Evans will draw the start at point guard tonight, and he looks like a fine play in daily leagues with a dream matchup against the 76ers. Eric Gordon will also see an uptick in value, with Jimmer Fredette expected to log some extra minutes.
Jan 16 - 5:35 PM

Jrue Holiday (ankle) said he is unsure if he will play Friday vs. the Sixers, and he is headed for a game-time decision.

Tyreke Evans also said that he is starting at point guard for Friday's game, so it seems like Holiday is extremely doubtful for Friday. We'll be passing along updates as they become available, but it's looking like owners should have their backup plan ready. Eric Gordon and Evans would be the primary beneficiaries if Holiday sits, with Jimmer Fredette also in line for some extended minutes. Stay tuned.

Jrue Holiday (right ankle inflammation) is questionable for Friday's game against the 76ers.

The questionable tag come as relatively good news as fantasy owners were holding their breath that his injury Monday wasn't related to the shin injury that kept him out most of last season. We'll update Holiday's status after shootaround on Friday, but Eric Gordon, Jimmer Fredette, and Tyreke Evans would all see a boost in fantasy value if Holiday is unable to play.

The Pelicans are listing Jrue Holiday (ankle) as day-to-day, and coach Monty Williams couldn't offer a potential return date.

"We think [Holiday] is day-to-day, but we're not going to put a timetable on Jrue," said Williams. "One thing our fans have to understand is that if Jrue is in pain, he’s in pain. He plays through a lot of stuff. Last year he played with a broken elbow that nobody even knew about, because he played right through it." Newly-acquired PG Nate Wolters may be thrust into a major role for however long Holiday is sidelined, while Eric Gordon, Jimmer Fredette and Tyreke Evans should also have the ball in their hands for much of the game.

Jrue Holiday (ankle) will not play on Wednesday vs. the Pistons.

He suffered the injury on Monday and is said to be dealing with some inflammation in his right ankle which doesn't bode well for his status moving forward. We will continue to list Holiday as day-to-day for now, but owners should continue to check in for further updates. Tyreke Evans will likely take over the point guard spot for now and would be an intriguing option in daily leagues. Jimmer Fredette and newly-signed Nate Wolters also figure to see some minutes in the short-term.

Jrue Holiday (right ankle inflammation) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Detroit.

Holiday exited Monday's game against Boston after 16 minutes, and he was unable to return, so we'll be monitoring his status closely heading into Wednesday's game. Jimmer Fredette would likely see some increased minutes if Holiday is ruled out, but Eric Gordan and Tyreke Evans will be the primary beneficiaries. Stay tuned.

Jrue Holiday is dealing with right ankle inflammation on Monday and is doubtful to return.

Not good. Holiday had a right tibia stress fracture cost him the second half of his season last year, so the Pelicans are certainly going to be cautious with him. Chances are they will give him an X-ray to make sure everything is OK. He exited the game with four points, four boards, two assists, two steals and one block. Jimmer Fredette will pick up minutes, but Tyreke Evans will run the point a ton. Eric Gordon will also benefit.
Jan 12 - 9:25 PM

Jrue Holiday was fantastic against the Grizzlies on Friday during a 106-95 win with 23 points, three rebounds, eight assists, two steals and three 3-pointers.

Pushing Tyreke Evans to the bench looks like it'll help Holiday quite a bit with more ball-handling responsibility. Even without this recent bump, Holiday was still putting up top-30 value in standard leagues over the past month. His owners should be very happy right now.
Jan 10 - 1:34 AM

Jrue Holiday had a fantastic effort against the Spurs on Friday during a 97-90 win with 15 points, five rebounds, seven assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes.

While he's not shooting the ball great at 43.3 percent this month, his 8.5 assists, 0.8 blocks and 1.7 steals have helped his fantasy value tremendously. He's a strong No. 2 fantasy point guard right now.
