Jrue Holiday PG NO 14 Days

Holiday led the Pelicans with 24 points (9-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 4-4 FT) with nine assists in 28 minutes in the easy win over Minnesota on Friday.

The Pelicans hit 66.7 percent of their shots from the field and 75 percent on 3-pointers, and Holiday was the best of the best. He has scored at least 15 points in his last five games and tallied at least nine assists three times in that span.

Holiday is listed as probable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

Holiday is not injured, but Tuesday marks the Pelicans' first back-to-back of the season, and Holiday is still less than a year removed from surgery to repair a tibial stress fracture. He's played big minutes of late (36.5 over the past two games), so he doesn't appear to be limited, but the Pelicans could exercise caution as he continues to build up to full strength.

Holiday put in 24 points (10-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with four rebounds, six assists, and three steals in 37 minutes in the loss to the Mavs on Saturday.

Holiday had a quiet opener in the win over the Magic with eight points and four assists. He was more aggressive with jumpers, but his one free throw through two games indicates that he has not been taking the ball to the basket.

Holiday (leg) will start in Saturday's preseason game against Miami, the New Orleans Times-Picayune's John Reid reports.

Holiday is still recovering from the tibial stress fracture he suffered last season, but the fact that both he and the team are feeling confident enough to run him out there for the first preseason game is a very positive sign. Assuming he doesn't suffer any setbacks, he should be fine for the Pelicans' Oct. 28 season opener.

Holiday said Monday that he is likely to be limited during training camp, Jimmy Smith of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Holiday continues to recover from the tibial stress fracture that cut his 2013-14 season short in January. He began five-on-five workouts more than two weeks ago but has not progressed to the point that he's ready for full contact. Holiday estimated that he's about 70 percent heading into camp, so it's reasonable to expect that he'll be limited during the preseason as well. Barring a setback, however, Holiday should be ready to open the regular season as the Pelicans' starting point guard.

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.
