Pondexter (knee) expects to be healthy by the start of training camp, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Pondexter underwent arthroscopic surgery in May on his left knee. He's recently spent time watching the summer league squad and catching up with assistant coach Darren Erman. The new offense installed by head coach Alvin Gentry will push the pace, and Erman has been going over the defensive coverages with Pondexter.

Pondexter (knee) was traded from the Grizzlies to the Pelicans in January of the 2014-15 season. He received a larger role with the Pelicans, averaging 9.0 points, 3.1 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.4 blocks, and 0.3 steals in 28 minutes per game through 45 games played with New Orleans.

Pondexter enjoyed increased minutes this season after being traded to New Orleans. Thanks to injuries and an opening at the small forward spot, he started 28 out of the 45 games he played as a Pelican. His three-point percentage increased from a dismal 23 percent in Memphis to an astounding 43 percent in New Orleans. His improvement on offense throughout the season was a huge plus for the Pelicans but did not increase his fantasy value enough to be relevant in most standard leagues. He underwent minor knee surgery in May but should be ready for training camp, so there is little chance that this injury keeps him out to begin the 2015-16 season. With a lot of momentum heading into next season, it will be interesting to see what role Pondexter will find under new head coach Alvin Gentry.

Pondexter shot 46 percent from distance post-All-Star break. The larger surprise stems from his team-high rebounds, assists and steals against the league's best defense. With Tyreke Evans (knee) potentially unavailable moving forward, Pondexter will assume more offensive responsibility.

With Tyreke Evans (knee) going down, Pondexter saw extra run and extra shots Saturday and will need to continue that sort of form if Evans' MRI results are not encouraging. Throughout the regular season, Pondexter averaged 1.2 three-pointers in just 24 minutes off action, numbers which will have to increase in New Orleans has a chance of an upset.

Pondexter should continue to hold increased value so long as Ryan Anderson (knee) remains out of the lineup. He's played at least 27 minutes in every game since Feb. 20 and is usually a solid source of three-pointers at a low daily price.
