Jameer Nelson    G  Pelicans

 

 

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said Jameer Nelson will continue to come off the bench going forward. Nelson closed out the Lakers during his debut on Sunday, finishing with five points, five assists, one rebound and one steal in 24 minutes of action. He should have some deep-league appeal until Rajon Rondo is healthy, but we'd like him better if he was starting. E'Twaun Moore will continue to start for now.

Rajon Rondo    G  Pelicans

 

 

Rajon Rondo (sports hernia) has been going through shooting drills after practices. Rondo is still expected to miss about another month, and the recent acquisition of Jameer Nelson will allow New Orleans to be extra cautious. If you don't have an IR spot, he's probably not worth the risk.

Jameer Nelson    G  Pelicans

 

 

Jameer Nelson made his Pelicans debut on Sunday with five points, five assists, one rebound and one steal in 24 minutes of action. Nelson was running the offense down the stretch of a close game tonight, even though he'd been with the Pelicans for only a few hours. Alvin Gentry obviously trusts him, and he rewarded that faith with some nice passes and a clutch 3-pointer to extend New Orleans' lead with 1:26 left. His season-long appeal is dubious, but Nelson is worth watching while Rajon Rondo is out.

Jrue Holiday    G  Pelicans

 

 

Jrue Holiday bounced back on Sunday with 14 points, six assists, five rebounds and four steals, helping the Pelicans escape L.A. with a 119-112 victory. Holiday's fantasy stock rose with Rajon Rondo (sports hernia) undergoing surgery, but through two games he was averaging just 8.5 points on 7-of-27 shooting (25.9 percent). It looks like coach Alvin Gentry prefers him off-ball, because Jameer Nelson was handling the offense late in a close game, but as long as the minutes are there Holiday should produce mid-round value.

E'Twaun Moore    G  Pelicans

 

 

E'Twaun Moore scored 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting during Sunday's road win in L.A., making three 3-pointers with two rebounds in 32 minutes. Moore's efficiency was the key tonight, and his fantasy appeal is precarious at best as a low-usage player with career averages of 6.5 points, 1.8 rebounds, 1.7 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.2 blocks. It doesn't help that Jameer Nelson's arrival adds depth to the backcourt, Ian Clark is playing well, and Rajon Rondo (sports hernia) should be back in 3-5 weeks.

Anthony Davis    F/C  Pelicans

 

 

Anthony Davis stuffed the boxscore on Sunday with 27 points, 17 rebounds, three assists, three steals and three blocks. Davis hit one 3-pointer while finishing 9-of-18 from the field and 8-of-10 from the FT line, and he was seemingly everywhere on the court at times. He did take a hard elbow to the neck/jaw while drawing a charge on Larry Nance, leading to some tense moments, but he never left the game. So far, so good for owners who bet on AD's upside.

Ian Clark    G  Pelicans

 

 

Ian Clark logged 24 minutes off the bench on Sunday, shooting 6-of-9 from the field with a pair of 3-pointers for 14 points, two rebounds, two assists and two steals. The Pelicans signed Clark for the minimum this offseason and he looks like a bargain. He's a great fit off the bench, but is more of a deep-league option with newly-signed PG Jameer Nelson in town. Rajon Rondo's eventual return from a core-muscle injury won't help.
