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.

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.
Feb 21 - 10:46 PM

Quincy Pondexter is starting in place of Dante Cunningham for Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

Cunningham has been very disappointing in recent weeks, so the move makes sense. Pondexter has season averages of just 5.6 points, 2.4 boards and 1.0 assist in 20.7 minutes per game, so he's only worth a look in deeper leagues for now. Check back after the game to see how he fares against the Heat.
Feb 21 - 7:45 PM

Quincy Pondexter hit 4-of-10 shots (including three treys) for 15 points, two rebounds, one assist and two steals in 34 minutes off the bench on Friday.

Pondexter also hit all four of his free throws and is all of a sudden productive for owners in 12-team formats. Don't get crazy as one look at his game log will tell you, but keep an eye on him in case he can keep it up. It's not like the Pelicans are deep right now.
Feb 7 - 2:47 AM

Quincy Pondexter played 28 minutes off the bench and had 10 points, seven rebounds and two 3-pointers on 4-of-8 shooting.

He's averaging just 5.5 points, 4.8 boards and 1.0 3-pointers over his last five games, so tonight's line isn't anything to get excited about.
Feb 5 - 12:59 AM

Pelicans F Quincy Pondexter tied his season high with 14 points on Sunday, hitting 4-of-10 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs with two 3-pointers, five rebounds and three assists.

Q-Pon did his damage in 29 minutes and has established a steady role for the SF-starved Pelicans. He'll provide a trickle of points and rebounds with the occasional 3-pointer, but beware his season-average 35.6 percent shooting.
Jan 25 - 9:38 PM

Quincy Pondexter logged 32 minutes against the Pistons during an easy 105-94 win on Wednesday with nine points, six boards, three assists and three 3-pointers.

His arrival comes right on time with the Pelicans missing Jrue Holiday (ankle). Tyreke Evans is going to log all of his minutes at the guard spots now, so Pondexter does have a chance to play. He won't have a big upside do to a lack of offensive skill, but he's worth a look in deep leagues.
Jan 14 - 10:13 PM

Quincy Pondexter will be active for Wednesday's game against Detroit.

Coach Monty Williams said that he will mix Pondexter into his rotations right away so owners in deep leagues should at least keep him on the radar. The Pelicans have been playing Dante Cunningham big minutes at the small forward spot so it's not out of the question for Pondexter to eventually take his spot. We will let you know how he fares after the game.
Jan 14 - 1:40 PM

Quincy Pondexter is inactive for Monday night in Boston.

Austin Rivers, Jameer Nelson and Tayshaun Prince are also inactive for this game, as expected. Pondexter could get back in the rotation at some point, but there's no need to add him.
Jan 12 - 6:41 PM

The Grizzlies will send Quincy Pondexter and a 2015 second-round pick to New Orleans in exchange for Russ Smith.

Pondexter is going to struggle to hold any value in New Orleans, and the same can be said about Russ Smith who will now be a fourth-string point guard in Memphis. Both players can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Jan 11 - 5:18 PM

Quincy Pondexter is unavailable for Sunday's game against the Suns.

Pondexter is the other part of the Jeff Green - Tayshaun Prince trade, so it's looking like this deal is getting very close to being finalized. Pondexter is expected to be traded to the Pelicans, but it'll be tough for him to sustain any value as long as Anthony Davis, Ryan Anderson, and Tyreke Evans are healthy. Leave him on the wire.
Jan 11 - 4:34 PM

Quincy Pondexter is expected to be traded to the Pelicans in the Jeff Green trade.

While he does have a chance to start, there just isn't going to be enough opportunity. As a comparison, Luke Babbitt started 19 games and managed just 5.1 points per game in17.3 minutes. Unless something happens to Ryan Anderson or Anthony Davis, Pondexter won't be worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 10 - 3:35 PM

Quincy Pondexter (ankle) will play on Saturday vs. the Heat.

He will return to his normal role off of the bench, but he won't see enough minutes to matter in most leagues. Keep Pondexter on the waiver wire.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 06:13:00 PM

Quincy Pondexter is dealing with a right ankle sprain, and is questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Heat.

Pondexter has a limited role in Memphis, and he is only an asset in extremely deep leagues. If he sits, expect Vince Carter to see more minutes off of the bench Saturday. Stay tuned.
