Quincy Pondexter (knee) said that he still doesn't have a timetable to return to action.
Alvin Gentry said in early November that Pondexter was "looking closer", but this isn't the most reassuring report. The Pelicans could definitely use some help on the wings, but Dante Cunningham and Luke Babbitt will continue to fill the void for now. Nov 6 - 12:14 PM

Alvin Gentry said that Quincy Pondexter (knee) is "looking closer" to ready, but added that they will not push him to return sooner than his original timeline.

Pondexter is due back sometime during November, and the Pelicans sure could use him with Tyreke Evans sidelined. Once he gets back into the rotation, he'll likely take away minutes from Luke Babbitt and Dante Cunningham, however he won’t do enough on the stat sheet to warrant the attention of owners in standard formats.
Nov 1 - 2:53 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) did some light shooting on Friday.

He is not ready to go yet, but the Pelicans need him badly. They are very thin at small forward and Pondexter would almost certainly start. He would only be a stash in 20-team leagues or deeper. This would affect Dante Cunningham.
Oct 30 - 2:35 PM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) revealed that he played hurt for the last two months of the 2014-15 season.

"I played the last two months or so on a really bad knee, and there were so many things I had to go through just to get on the court," Pondexter said. "My knee would swell and then it couldn’t drain, and I’d go through so much therapy before the games, and a lot of it didn’t really make much of a difference." Pondexter went so far as to duck MRI's—and accrue subsequent fines—in order to remain on the floor. Without a timetable for his return, Pondexter's return won't come until November at the earliest.
Oct 5 - 10:31 AM

Quincy Pondexter (knee) is not going to be available until November.

His rehab has been moving along slowly, which isn't a surprise for the oft-injured forward. With Pondexter out, Dante Cunningham and hopefully Ryan Anderson will get more minutes.

Quincy Pondexter's knee rehab is moving slowly.

:I hope not to miss much time if any time at all. I'm looking forward to having a lot better season than I did last year," Pondexter said. He had arthroscopic surgery back on May 6, so he's certainly behind the normal prognosis. Still, he has very little fantasy value.
Sep 4 - 4:11 PM

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.
Jul 28 - 7:36 PM

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.
