Jrue Holiday PG NO 9 Days

Holiday has returned to playing five-on-five during workouts, NBA.com reports. "I've been working out and been on the court (individually) for a little while, but getting back to playing has been a joy," Holiday said. "The first couple days, just playing and trying to get a rhythm back, seeing my teammates, it's fun."

Eight months after a stress fracture in his tibia ended Holiday's 2013-14 season, he's back to full strength and is expected to enter camp at 100 percent. While a stress fracture is always a concern, Holiday missed only 14 of 312 games over four years with the Sixers before coming to New Orleans last summer. Prior to the injury, Holiday was enjoying a strong statistical season, averaging 14.3 points, 7.9 assists and 4.2 rebounds while shooting a hair under 45 percent from the floor. During the month of December, Holiday's averages jumped to 16.3 points and 9.0 assists, and he notched five double-digit assist games.

Holiday and the rest of the banged up Pelicans, according to general manager Dell Demps, should be fully recovered for the start of training camp, the Times-Picayune reports.

All of Holiday, Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson and Tyreke Evans should be a full go after various offseason surgeries. Now healthy with his right tibia injury behind him, Holiday should have no problem besting his uninspiring first season in New Orleans, when he averaged 14.3 points and 7.9 assists per game. Playing alongside Anthony Davis and the other healthy Pelican stars, Holiday could have a big year ahead of him.

Jrue Holiday (shin surgery) expects to be cleared for on-court activity in August.

Holiday hasn't done any on-court work since suffering a stress fracture in January, and he's still working to rebuild the muscles in his right leg while regaining his conditioning. He said that he feels "strong" and as long as he does get on the court in August he should be ready to go for Pelicans' training camp.

Jrue Holiday (leg) is still not cleared for basketball activity.

He added that he's not expecting a trade this time around. Holiday was traded to New Orleans on draft night last year, but there were some murmurs of him possibly being dealt. Holiday is expected to be ready for training camp as the Pelicans' starting point guard and has started working out with his conditioning coach recently.

Jrue Holiday (leg) has been working out with his performance and conditioning coach.

The team Twitter account tweeted out a picture of Jrue lifting weights, doing agility drills, and dribbling a basketball on Wednesday. They haven't revealed too much on Jrue's status, but coach Monty Williams said that his starting point guard is "on target" to be ready for training camp.

The Pelicans have discussed trades to acquire a first-round draft pick, but they haven't considered including Jrue Holiday in any deals.

Holiday was linked to the Kings' No. 8 pick, but beat writer John Reid's sources have debunked that rumor. The Pelicans are interested in drafting a center or small forward, two obvious needs for their team, but they don't have any draft picks of their own due to last season's deal that sent Nerlens Noel and this year's pick to the 76ers for Holiday and Pierre Jackson.

Coach Monty Williams said Jrue Holiday (leg) is "on target" from his back surgery in February.

The Pelicans were extremely tight-lipped on Jrue after his stress fracture to his tibia. Holiday's injury may have occurred back on Jan. 8, but the team was very hesitant to update his status. The former All-Star is expected to be ready for training camp and will look to build off a nice start in New Orleans.

Jrue Holiday (stress fracture) has yet to practice, according to beat writer Jim Eichenhofer.

Eichenhofer also added that Holiday is no closer to returning, according to Pelicans' coach Monty Williams. The lack of information from the Pelicans regarding Holiday's has been akin to a covert op, but it's looking like we won't see the 23-year-old on the court until at least March. In the meantime, Brian Roberts should be considered a must-own in standard leagues until Holiday's return.

Jrue Holiday is still out indefinitely and has no timetable to return, according to team beat writer Jim Eichenhofer.

There was an unsubstantiated report last week about Holiday possibly coming back this week, but the report mentioned a possible 4-6 week timeline, which was never released by the team. Fantasy owners have to just sit tight for now and look for Jrue to eventually make his way back to the practice court.
