Pelicans GM Dell Demps said Quincy Pondexter's (knee) status is "a little uncertain right now."
Demps said that the wing will go through some testing this week and that he's hopeful he will be back on the court soon. Pondexter hasn't played since the 2015 playoffs, so it's hard to project his role for the 2017-18 season. "He’s had some setbacks," Demps added. "He’s had a couple surgeries. It’s tough because he’s one of those glue-type guys who is a leader not only in the locker room, but on the floor. We’ve missed his defense and his shooting." If the Pelicans bring back Jrue Holiday, they will be over the cap and won't have much money to spend on quality wing players, so that bodes well for Pondexter's path to minutes. He's still unlikely to make an impact in standard fantasy leagues next season.
