Holiday (leg) remains out indefinitely, NBA.com reports.

Holiday is yet to be cleared for contact, and with three weeks remaining in the regular season it's possible that he may not be back on the court in 2014-15. Holiday, himself, said he feels good, but the decision is in the hands of the team's medical staff. "I think the doctor kind of has a timetable, which they know about," he said. "I don't really know. I don't ask questions, because I might try to test the waters a little bit too soon (if he hears encouraging signs). So I just do what they tell me." Holiday has not played since Jan. 12, when he aggravated the stress reaction injury in his lower right leg. At the time of the injury, Holiday was averaging 15.2 points, 7.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.

Holiday (leg) remains without a firm timetable for a return.

Holiday is currently working out and participating in some basketball activities but coach Monty Williams refused to give a potential return date for the point guard. As a result, Holiday should still be considered out as he continues to rehab from the stress fracture in his lower right leg while holding out hope that he'll make a comeback before the season ends.

Holiday (leg) shot the ball but did not practice Friday, the New Orleans Advocate's Darrell J. Williams reports.

Holiday will see a specialist regarding the stress reaction in his lower right leg, and remains out indefinitely. Tyreke Evans, who plans to play through a sprained ankle, and Norris Cole should continue to see big minutes at the one while Holiday is out.

Holiday (leg) is no longer wearing a walking boot, but he said he's still experiencing pain and swelling, Darrell Williams of the New Orleans/Baton Rouge Advocate reports.

It's a step in the right direction for Holiday, though persistent swelling and pain are obviously not positive indications considering he hasn't played since mid-January. Holiday is set to be re-evaluated in about a week, so more information will be available at that time.

Holiday (leg) is wearing a walking boot and will be re-evaluated again in two weeks, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Holiday continues to nurse a stress reaction injury in his lower right leg. It's the same area that caused him to miss much of last season with a stress fracture in his right tibia. "This is completely different," Holiday said after Wednesday's shootaround. "Difference is that I had a crack in my shin last year, I don't have a crack now. I've got to two weeks in this boot to see how it goes." Holiday remains without a firm timetable, but he'll miss at least another two weeks and probably more, considering he'll have to work his way back into game shape once the stress reaction heals. In the meantime, the Pelicans will continue to rely on Tyreke Evans and recently acquired Norris Cole to handle point guard duties.

Holiday (leg) aggravated the stress reaction in his lower right leg Monday and will be re-evaluated in three weeks.Holiday has missed the team's last 16 games with the injury, and he's now slated to miss another significant chunk of time. The hope is that he could return to practice after three weeks, though the team will certainly exercise caution given Holiday's history of stress-related injuries. His extended absence means Tyreke Evans will continue to start at point guard, but it also increases the likelihood that New Orleans pursues a deal for a point guard before Thursday's deadline.

Coach Month Williams said there's a chance Holiday (leg) could return to practice with the team during the All-Star break, NBA.com reports.When asked on his weekly radio show if Holiday is close to returning, Williams had the following to say: "I think we are. Do I know the date? I'm not sure. But in my mind, it wouldn't be far-fetched to think we can get him back during the All-Star break. I know he's chomping at the bit and he's feeling a lot better. If we can get him back over the break, it would really give our team a jolt, and kind of settle the rotation a bit." Holiday hasn't played in nearly a month with a stress reaction in his lower-leg, and the Pelicans have turned to Tyreke Evans to fill in as the starting point guard. Once Holiday returns, Evans will likely shift back to small forward, though Williams could opt to use him in a more versatile role off the bench.

Holiday (leg) remains out for Wednesday's game against the Pacers.The team has not provided a target return date for Holiday, who was diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right lower-leg in mid-January. He was initially given a 2-to-4 week timetable, so if that holds up, Holiday could return to action immediately following the All-Star break.

Holiday (ankle) is likely to miss the next 2-to-4 weeks after tests revealed a stress reaction his right lower-leg, Jen Hale of Fox Sports reports.

Holiday has been battling inflammation in his right ankle, and it appears Wednesday's tests have revealed the source of the issue. Holiday, who missed much of last season with a stress fracture in his right tibia, has missed the last four games and will likely remain out until near or after the All-Star break. It's a tough blow for a Pelicans team that's short on guards after annexing Austin Rivers. Tyreke Evans figures to hold onto the starting point guard role for the foreseeable future, meaning Dante Cunningham will likely remain in the lineup at small forward. Nate Wolters, who signed a 10-day deal last week, could also see increased minutes. It also wouldn't be a surprise if the Pelicans, who are within striking distance of a playoff spot, look to add another point guard via free agency or trade.
