Jrue Holiday still not ready to return to action

ImageThe New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday is still not ready to hit the court after a stress fracture in his right leg. There is no set timetable when Holiday will be able to suit up and play a game. He has not played a game since January 8th. This marks the second injury setback the Pelicans are facing as power forward Ryan Anderson is also out. He leads the team in scoring just under 20 points a game, but he is also recovering from a herniated disk in his shoulder.

If Holiday ends up missing an extended period of time it will definatly effect the Pelicans playoff hopes. New Orleans is only four games off in the Western Conference playoff race. It will be very hard to remain withing close distance while missing two key pieces.

With that being said, it is unclear exactly how long Holiday will be sidelined, but the Pelicans are hoping when he comes back they will still be in the playoff race.
