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.

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.
Sat, Dec 27, 2014 12:36:00 PM

Quincy Pondexter played 23 minutes in start against the Spurs on Wednesday with four points, four rebounds, two assists and two steals.

Pondexter had a solid preseason, but he's been quiet on the season. Vince Carter has found the fountain of youth off the bench, so Pondexter is going to have a tough time having fantasy value even with Tony Allen out.

Quincy Pondexter (illness) returned to action on Sunday, scoring 11 points with one 3-pointer and two rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench.

Q-Pon's minutes briefly surged with five Grizzlies ailing last week, but he's irrelevant in standard-sized fantasy leagues now that they're back at full strength. He and Vince Carter (two points in nine minutes) tend to trade off decent games, which makes them both unsavory fantasy options.

Quincy Pondexter (illness) will not play on Friday against the Celtics.

He has the nasty stomach bug now and could miss additional time because he doesn't get much playing time to begin with. Pondexter is only worth owning in very deep leagues.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 07:55:00 PM

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

Courtney Lee said that Pondexter is dealing with the worst part of the illness today, so it would be a bit shocking if he were to suit up. If Pondexter sits, there will be more minutes to go around for Vince Carter and Courtney Lee.
Fri, Nov 21, 2014 12:50:00 PM

Quincy Pondexter (illness) is listed as questionable to face the Celtics on Friday.

He looks like he's a little behind schedule on the illness, so Pondexter might have a smaller chance to play. He's not a fantasy option as long as Courtney Lee and Tony Allen are out there.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 07:34:00 PM

Quincy Pondexter started for the flu-depleted Grizzlies on Wednesday and had just four points and one rebound on 2-of-6 shooting in 25 minutes.

Courtney Lee, Tony Allen and a few others were out with the illness tonight, so QP drew the start. He looked like a sneaky daily play, but that plan didn't work out as planned.
