Quincy Pondexter (knee surgery) said that he will be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season.
"I guarantee I'll be 100 percent by training camp," Pondexter said. "That's about it right now. It's gonna be a lot of work, a lot of hard work this summer. It'll be pretty [good]. I'll be well into being on the court by the time training camp comes." Mar 20 - 11:15 AM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) had surgery on Wednesday and is out for the season.

He is expected to be ready for the start of next year. Losing Pondexter really hurts the Pelicans, who are running out of wings right now.
Jan 20 - 6:29 PM

Quincy Pondexter will undergo season-ending left knee surgery on Jan. 20 in New York, according to Yahoo! Sports.

This is a really tough blow for the Pelicans. Pondexter was expected to return last week, so this surgery helps explain why he's come along so slowly. The Pelicans have really struggled at small forward all year and they'll likely be putting some guys on 10-day deals to fill the void.
Jan 11 - 6:53 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) will not play against the Lakers on Tuesday.

It's a little odd there was so much optimism for him to play last week. Pondexter probably won't play this week, which means more minutes for Dante Cunningham.
Jan 11 - 3:18 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) is listed as out for Sunday against the Clippers.

He is getting close to a return and the Pelicans could really use him. Pondexter was questionable back on Wednesday, but the Pelicans may have cooled off on getting him out there. Dante Cunningham will likely benefit most while Pondexter is out.
Jan 9 - 2:56 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) will not play vs. the Pacers on Friday.

Q-Pon is slowly nearing his season debut but he's not ready yet. It will be interesting to see how his role develops given the weak competition at SF in New Orleans, but for now he's not worth owning outside of very deep leagues.
Jan 8 - 6:29 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) is being listed as doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Pacers.

Pondexter is getting close to making his season debut, but it doesn't sound like Friday will be the day. He could eventually find his way into the starting five with his only competition being Alonzo Gee and Luke Babbitt, but he's going to be brought along slowly following knee surgery, and can safely remain on the wire in standard formats.
Jan 7 - 5:56 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) will not play against the Mavs on Wednesday.

He went through warmups and the team will hold him out a little longer. Pondexter can defend better than Luke Babbitt and he's better on offense than Alonzo Gee, so he might be a candidate to start. Pondexter is only worth a stash in very deep leagues.
Jan 6 - 6:33 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) is warming up on Wednesday to face the Mavericks.

Basically, he's a game-time decision to make his season debut. Pondexter will certainly be limited tonight, but he could eventually crack the starting lineup. Leave him on the wire in almost all leagues for now.
Jan 6 - 6:01 PM

Quincy Pondexter (left knee surgery) could make his season debut on Wednesday.

He's officially listed as questionable. It's been a long road back for Pondexter, but he's finally got his knee right and could be a big help to a Pelicans team that needs a boost on the wing. As for his fantasy value, you should look elsewhere.
Jan 5 - 5:46 PM

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said that Quincy Pondexter (left knee surgery) will likely be back "in the next couple of weeks."

He was doing extensive work prior to Thursday's game vs. the Clippers, so it looks like he is finally nearing a return to the lineup. Pondexter could potentially start at small forward down the stretch, but he is going to be eased back into action and there is no reason to add him in most formats.
Jan 1 - 9:27 AM

Quincy Pondexter (left knee surgery) participated in all portions of Tuesday's practice in limited minutes, although he remains without an official timetable to return.

The updates on Pondexter thus far have been sparse, which isn't really a great sign for a player trying to return from knee surgery. With New Orleans sitting on an 8-19 record, Pondexter isn't going to be rushed to return to the court, and he can safely remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Quincy Pondexter (left knee surgery) has no timetable to return.

This comes a month after the veteran said he was without a timetable, so the lack of progress is troubling. Pondexter was supposed to return in November, but the month came and went without Q-Pon ever getting close to being on the floor. In a weird situation getting weirder, Pondexter had arthroscopic surgery in early May, but the updates have been few and far between. Nobody should be relying on Pondexter for anything related to fantasy basketball.
Mon, Dec 7, 2015 09:33:00 AM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) said that he still doesn't have a timetable to return to action.

Alvin Gentry said in early November that Pondexter was "looking closer", but this isn't the most reassuring report. The Pelicans could definitely use some help on the wings, but Dante Cunningham and Luke Babbitt will continue to fill the void for now.
Fri, Nov 6, 2015 12:14:00 PM

Alvin Gentry said that Quincy Pondexter (knee) is "looking closer" to ready, but added that they will not push him to return sooner than his original timeline.

Pondexter is due back sometime during November, and the Pelicans sure could use him with Tyreke Evans sidelined. Once he gets back into the rotation, he'll likely take away minutes from Luke Babbitt and Dante Cunningham, however he won’t do enough on the stat sheet to warrant the attention of owners in standard formats.
