Quincy Pondexter, who had arthroscopic left knee surgery on May 6, put off an MRI so that he could play in the postseason.
"[The MRI revealed] a laundry list of things that we had to get fixed," Pondexter said. "It's all good, I'm getting healthy. Hopefully, I'll be ready by the time training camp starts." Q-Pon could start at SF this season if coach Alvin Gentry opts to use Tyreke Evans as a versatile sixth-man, but even at full health Pondexter isn't likely to provide more than a handful of 3-pointers.

Monty Williams praised Quincy Pondexter's game on both sides of the ball for the Pelicans this season.

''He was huge (this season), not only on offense but on defense,'' Williams said. ''He had the ability to affect the game, and we liked his experience.'' Pondexter just had knee surgery last week, but he's expected to be ready well before training camp begins, and he should have a solid role in the rotation heading into next year.
May 11 - 9:18 AM

Quincy Pondexter had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Wednesday morning and a return timetable will be announced soon.

While the prognosis is not yet known, this procedure is usually a 4-6 week recovering time. He played a little more while the Pelicans were missing guys like Jrue Holiday and will likely just see minutes in the teens while the team is at full strength. His contract is through the 2017-18 season.
May 6 - 3:29 PM

Quincy Pondexter will start against the Warriors on Saturday and Jrue Holiday will come off the bench.

Holiday isn't quite ready for his usual role, but he should play minutes in the high 20s. That means there will be less minutes for Pondexter in this huge game.
Apr 18 - 3:09 PM

Quincy Pondexter played just 24 minutes on Monday with zero points on 0-for-5 shooting.

Pondexter had 20 points last Tuesday but that's all we've heard of him since then. With one more game left in the season, he's a risky play for some 3-pointers and that's about it.
Apr 14 - 3:40 AM

Quincy Pondexter lit up the Warriors for 20 points on only seven shot attempts Tuesday, draining 6-of-7 field goals and 4-of-5 free throws with four 3-pointers.

Few players are making a bigger impact from the perimeter than Pondexter, who is a blazing 13-of-19 beyond the arc in four April games. Q-Pon will chip in enough points and rebounds to be more than a pure specialist, and he needs to be in active lineups until an opponent figures out how to cool him off.
Apr 7 - 10:56 PM

Quincy Pondexter hit six threes against the Kings on Friday, finishing with 18 points on 6-of-13 shooting, four rebounds, two assists and one block in 29 minutes.

The Kings don't defend the 3-point line at all and we're a bit surprised that Monty Williams didn't manufacture ways to find him more out there. This line is a good look for him but he was having a hard time producing before Ryan Anderson returned to action.
Apr 4 - 2:36 AM

Quincy Pondexter scored 16 points on 6-of-11 shooting (including four threes) with five rebounds and two steals against the Kings on Friday.

The Kings are good for a few extra 3PAs for their opponents so nothing really stands out here. If you need the triples, give him a look.
Mar 28 - 1:35 AM

Quincy Pondexter played 38 minutes vs. the Clippers on Sunday, finishing with 12 points, four 3-pointers and three rebounds.

He started the first half ahead of Eric Gordon but it was a temporary switch and Gordon will return to the starting five on Wednesday -- he was benched today because he was late to a team meeting. Q-Pon has averaged 30 minutes per game over the past month, but he's only worth using as a 3-point specialist in typical leagues.
Mar 22 - 6:24 PM

Quincy Pondexter scored 15 points on 4-of-9 shooting (including three treys) with three rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes on Friday against the Warriors.

Pondexter has been a late-round value the past two weeks and that's a high water mark for him. If the Pelicans continue to experience multiple injuries, he could be worth a look in 12-14 team leagues.
Mar 21 - 3:42 AM

Quincy Pondexter shot 5-of-10 from downtown during Tuesday's home win, finishing with 18 points, seven rebounds, two assists and only one turnover in 38 minutes.

Q-Pon has scored 17, four and 18 points in his previous three games, but he's more often found in single-digits. The 13 shot attempts were one shy of his season-high and his usage rate is typically much lower, so don't let this sway you -- he's only worth a glance as a 3-point specialist.
Mar 17 - 11:15 PM

Quincy Pondexter scored 17 points with four assists, one board, one block and five 3-pointers vs. the Nets on Tuesday.

This was the first time in March that Pondexter reached double digits in the scoring column so owners shouldn't overreact here. Unless he does this again, it's safe to leave him on the wire outside of the deepest of leagues.
Mar 10 - 10:38 PM

Quincy Pondexter scored 18 points on 7-of-11 shooting with three rebounds and one block in 33 minutes on Friday against the Heat.

Pondexter scored 25 points the last time out and wasn't worth a pickup then and he's not worth a pickup now. Luke Babbitt (five points, one steal, one block, one three, 23 minutes) is in the same boat, and Dante Cunningham rounds out this rag tag crew with 10 points, 10 boards and one steal.
Feb 28 - 3:41 AM

Quincy Pondexter drew another start at small forward on Wednesday and hit 9-of-13 shots and four 3-pointers for a career-high 25 points to go along with five rebounds and two assists in a tough win over the Nets.

One of his threes was a dagger for the win and he was simply feeling it tonight. He's worth a look as long as Ryan Anderson and Anthony Davis are out, and the Pelicans have somehow won three straight games to stay in the playoff hunt. QP had just five points in Saturday's start, but could make for a sneaky DFS play soon if Davis and Anderson continue to miss time, and Pondexter builds on the confidence he gained tonight.
Feb 26 - 1:06 AM

Quincy Pondexter played 27 minutes in a start against the Heat on Saturday with five points, three assists and one rebound.

He might stick in the starting lineup, but Pondexter has some boring averages. In his last five, he averaged 7.2 points, 1.2 boards, 1.2 assists and 0.8 blocks. No thanks.
