Pelicans GM Dell Demps said that the earliest Quincy Pondexter (knee surgeries) could return is in November.
"The next 2-4 weeks will give us a better understanding of when he’ll be ready to play," Demps said. "Best-case scenario for him would be November [to return], but it also could be December or January for him as well." With Tyreke Evans (knee) expected to miss the beginning of the season, Solomon Hill should be the heavy favorite to start at SF on opening night. Sep 26 - 2:55 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee surgeries) said that he still has to get his leg "a lot stronger" after two major knee surgeries.

Q-Pon didn't play at all last season due to ongoing knee complications, and it doesn't sound like he'll be back before November—but more likely December or January—at the earliest. Even with a nickname that centers around a discount, he's not on the fantasy radar in any format.

Quincy Pondexter (knee) is not traveling with the team to China.

He will stay home to continue his rehab. Pondexter still hasn't gone through any on-court work yet, so he's behind schedule. The Pelicans will almost certainly bring him along slowly and he might not be ready to start the season. Due to his knee surgery, he hasn't played in a game since Apr. 25, 2015.
Sep 23 - 2:35 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) has not gone through on-court work yet.

He's still with the team and said he's looking forward to getting out there. Pondexter had season-ending surgery back on Jan. 20 and is hoping to get out there for camp. Considering how much he's dealt with knee injuries, he'll be brought along slowly.

Quincy Pondexter (left knee surgery) is "getting close" to returning, according to head coach Alvin Gentry.

Pondexter had to undergo two separate left knee surgeries in what was a lost 2015-16 campaign, but the Pelicans are hopeful that Q-Pon will be ready to go when the lights turn back on. "I think with Quincy he's getting close and I think we're airing on the side of caution and not jumping the gun at all," Gentry said. '"I think he will probably be healthy and ready to go for us." Even if Pondexter is available for the start of the season, he will not be on the fantasy radar.

Quincy Pondexter (knee surgery) has progressed to going through live drills, although it's not clear if he'll be ready for the start of the 2016-17 season.

Pondexter spent the entire 2015-16 season on the sidelines after undergoing knee surgery, and while him progressing to live drills is a positive development, it's a bit concerning that he's still not ready to go after having so much time off. Pondexter is largely irrelevant in fantasy hoops.

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."

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.
