Jrue Holiday PG NO 14 Days
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.

Jrue Holiday (stress fracture) could return to action "in a week, if not sooner," according to Darrell Williams of the New Orleans Advocate.
We'd like to have this report confirmed by another source, as it may simply be an extrapolation from Holiday's original timetable, but he should not be on any waiver wires. His return will spoil fill-in starter Brian Roberts' value by thrusting him back to the bench. The Pelicans play at home on Wednesday before hitting the road for back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday, and owners with weekly lineups may want to err on the side of caution.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 25 Days
Jrue Holiday (leg) has been out for five weeks and still has no timetable to return.
He was diagnosed with a stress fracture of his tibia back on Jan. 10 and might have played with the injury back on Jan. 8 before tapping out and not playing in the fourth quarter. By comparison, Bradley Beal missed four weeks due to his stress to his fibula earlier this season, but every injury is different and Holiday's injury is to his tibia, which is a larger bone as a whole. It's anyone's guess on when he'll be back, but he should be stashed in all leagues, especially with no games until Tuesday.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 1 Month
Jrue Holiday (leg) has been talking to the medical staff about his leg injury, coach Monty Williams said on Saturday.
He still does not have a timetable to return and perhaps this meeting may shed some light on the subject. Holiday has missed the last 12 games with a stress fracture and the Pelicans have went with Brian Roberts at point guard. His owners have to stash him and should check back in a couple days for another update.
Jrue Holiday PG NO 1 Month
The Pelicans continue to simply list Jrue Holiday (leg) as inactive.
New Orleans has provided no updates since Holiday went down with a stress fracture in his right tibia three weeks ago. We haven't heard anything about him practicing, or even anything about how the fracture is healing. The only snippet we have to go on is an old report from CSNNW that suggested Holiday could return sometime around the All-Star break. Owners that have stashed this long should continue to do so as we await a progress update.
