(2/18/14) Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday has been sidelined since Jan. 10 with a stress fracture in his right tibia, but he could be back very soon. The New Orleans Advocate reports that Holiday is expected back in a week, "if not sooner."

|Report: Jrue Holiday could miss approximately one month |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(1/10/14) A source close to Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday told Comcast SportsNet Northwest that they're optimistic he'll return from a stress fracture in his right tibia in approximately a month.
Holiday was diagnosed with the injury on Friday and was ruled out indefinitely with the injury. In 34 games, Holiday has averaged 14.3 points, 7.9 assists and 4.2 rebounds on 44.7 percent shooting from the field and 39.0 percent from beyond the arc this season.
|The trade of Jrue Holiday to the Pelicans was one of the biggest surprise of the offseason, especially coming off his first All-Star selection. For Fantasy owners, the trade should not change Holiday’s outlook much for the coming season, though he will likely be asked to carry a much lighter load on a solid New Orleans roster. Holiday averaged 17.7 points and 8.0 assists per game for the 76ers last season, and he did that while playing for one of the most notoriously conservative coaches in the league. Unfortunately, the Hornets were actually the second-slowest team in the league last season, so continued statistical improvement might be unlikely in his new surroundings. With more help around him, Holiday is likely to improve his efficiency, which was the lone true knock on his game in a breakout season Even if Holiday takes a step back this season, he should be well worth selecting as one of the first two guards on your roster on Draft Day.
