Kendrick Perkins is very disappointed with how the season has gone for the Pelicans.
"It’s very disappointing. At the end of the day, this is not what I signed up for," Perkins said. "I signed up after I looked from the outside, coming in to a good young team that has been making strides in the right direction. We got real comfortable. We ain’t got long to make a push." It sounds like Perkins would like to ride the pine elsewhere, but he hasn't exactly helped the Pelicans with an average of 9.2 minutes per game in nine appearances. Jan 15 - 12:26 PM

Kendrick Perkins (pectoral) will be available to play on Friday vs. the Wizards.

The Pelicans basically signed Perkins for his leadership, and he may not even see the floor tonight. He has no fantasy value.

Kendrick Perkins (pectoral) is probable to play Friday against the Wizards.

He's a mentor to Anthony Davis, and a steadying veteran presence in the New Orleans' locker room, but his fantasy value is non-existent.

Kendrick Perkins (pectoral) is targeting a return vs. the Wizards on Friday.

The veteran might earn a handful of minutes behind Omer Asik but he's not a fantasy asset, and coach Alvin Gentry prizes him for his veteran mentorship. "He’s a great mentor for [Anthony Davis]," Gentry said. "He’s a great mentor for our team. We got a pretty quiet team. So to have an outspoken voice [is beneficial]."

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.

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.

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.
Fri, Oct 9, 2015 06:16:00 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.

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.
Tue, Jul 28, 2015 12:08:00 PM

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.
