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.
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.
