Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said he'd like to keep Kendrick Perkins (pectoral) around for as long as he's there.
Though Perk is out indefinitely, that didn't stop Gentry from singing the big man's praises. "As long as I'm the coach, I'd want to keep him around," Gentry said. Gentry's praise aside, Perkins can be left on waivers in standard fantasy leagues even when he's healthy. Nov 19 - 9:46 AM

Kendrick Perkins (pectoral) could miss three months.

A torn pectoral is often a season-ending injury, so three months could be within reason. Perkins was actually starting for the Pelicans, but at least they're getting some healthy bodies back soon.

Kendrick Perkins is dealing with a right pectoral injury and is out indefinitely.

Luckily for the Pelicans, Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca are healthy again, so they won't be in a rush to bring Perkins back. He isn't an option in fantasy leagues.

Kendrick Perkins left Saturday's game against the Warriors after straining his right pectoral, and he will not return.

Perkins was only able to make it though two minutes of action tonight, finishing the game with two points and an assist. The severity of the injury is currently unknown, but given how quickly he was ruled out tonight, we'll consider him questionable for Tuesday's game against the Magic. If Perkins is unable to play on Tuesday, Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca will pick up his minutes, with Asik likely drawing the start.

Kendrick Perkins will start against the Warriors on Saturday.

Hey, he had a good game against them on Tuesday. This is probably the biggest indication you'll need that Omer Asik will be limited tonight. If you're thinking about using Perkins in DFS, thanks for reading Rotoworld for the first time!

Kendrick Perkins scored four points with four rebounds in nine minutes on Wednesday.

There were 66 people who picked up Perkins in Yahoo! leagues after his game last night. We really hope you weren't one of them.

Kendrick Perkins made another start at center on Wednesday, posting six points, eight rebounds and one block in 24 minutes.

The Pelicans are desperate with Omer Asik (calf) and Alexis Ajinca (hamstring) both sidelined, and coach Alvin Gentry hasn't been willing to start Ryan Anderson alongside Anthony Davis. Perkins isn't even remotely appealing as a fantasy pickup, especially with Asik targeting a return in 7-10 days.
Oct 21 - 10:36 PM

Kendrick Perkins will start at center on Friday.

Well, the team apparently wants to keep Ryan Anderson in the second unit. Perkins has no fantasy value.
Oct 9 - 6:16 PM

Kendrick Perkins said that he's ready to step up for the Pelicans with Alexis Ajinca nursing a hamstring injury.

"I know I’m here to be a leader and be a veteran and all that, but I want to play," Perkins said Tuesday, when asked by media about the potential impact of Ajinca’s injury. "I’m a guy who wants to compete. I want to play. I want to win. At the end of the day, if the opportunity presents itself, I’m not looking back." Perkins will be stepping into a slightly larger role while Ajinca recovers from his hamstring injury, but that doesn't mean he'll have fantasy value. In 19 minutes per game with the Thunder last season, Perkins accumulated forgettable averages of 4.0 points and 5.5 rebounds.
Oct 7 - 12:42 PM

Kendrick Perkins has officially signed with the New Orleans Pelicans.

Terms of the deal have not been disclosed as per team policy, but the deal is believed to be a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum. Perk will serve as a mentor to Anthony Davis in New Orleans, but he won't provide any fantasy value in deep leagues and can be ignored on draft day.

Kendrick Perkins will serve in a mentorship role to Anthony Davis in New Orleans.

In other words, Perkins isn't there to play significant minutes. He's been completely irrelevant in fantasy hoops for five years now, and that won't change with the move to New Orleans.
Jul 22 - 10:34 AM

Kendrick Perkins and the Pelicans are finalizing a one-year deal worth the veteran's minimum.

New Orleans splurged on their frontcourt this summer, giving new contracts to Anthony Davis, Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca, and Perk is unlikely to get more than a handful of minutes per game. Suffice to say, the 12-year veteran struggled to crack the top-400 for fantasy value last season.
Jul 21 - 7:56 PM

Coach Doc Rivers is still interested in Kendrick Perkins.

Of course he is. The Clippers are getting the band back together with Paul Pierce joining forces with Doc. Perkins would likely only get a minimum deal and basically just be there for moral support.
Jul 1 - 8:36 PM

Kendrick Perkins is drawing interest from the Knicks, Pelicans and Rockets.

Perkins was invisible in Cleveland, so it's not surprising that the Cavaliers aren't going after him. Perkins is basically just a big body at this point in his career, and he won't have more than a limited role wherever he lands.
Jul 1 - 12:21 PM

Kendrick Perkins will travel to Chicago for Game 6 against the Bulls on Thursday and will be available to play.

He was involved in a roadside altercation with his wife on Wednesday morning, but no arrests were made and Perkins hasn't been accused of any wrongdoing. We will pass along any further details when we know more, but it sounds like this will just be a minor distraction moving forward. Perkins isn't a viable option in fantasy formats and has logged a total of 16 minutes in three appearances this series.
