New Orleans Pelicans forward/center DeMarcus Cousins will not play on Friday against the Houston Rockets due to left knee soreness and a right rib contusion. What It Means: Cousins took a kick to the chest on Wednesday night, so that was likely cause for the absence. He received an MRI for his knee, but results were negative for structural damage. Look for Anthony Davis and Jrue Holiday to stay busy on offense picking up the load. Jordan Crawford and Dante Cunningham could also benefit. With Cousins out of the lineup, Crawford becomes one of numberFire's favorite DFS plays of...

Pelicans stuck in neutral among NBA power rankings

A 2-1 week wasn't enough to convince national media folks to move New Orleans up It wasn’t pretty but the New Orleans Pelicans bounced back with a 2-1 week after Mardi Gras. In truth they left a win on the table as they had one in hand against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night before Kawhi Leonard took Jrue Holiday’s lunch money. Despite an awful start out of the All-Star Break (three straight losses and DeMarcus Cousins earning a suspension) the Pels find themselves 3.5 games out of the 8th spot in the Western Conference. To drop just one game farther back with the schedule they...

Jrue Holiday collects a double-double in Pelicans' win

New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday dished out 12 assists to go along with 20 points, five rebounds and three steals during Sunday's road win against the Los Angeles Lakers. What It Means: It was New Orleans' first win with DeMarcus Cousins in uniform and the Pelicans' new-look big three combined for 77 of the Pels' 105 points. Holiday has struggled some since Cousins' arrival in the BIg Easy, but he has started to get back on track with three straight games of 20-plus points. Holiday is averaging 16.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 7.4 assists and 1.6 steals over 32.8 minutes per...

Jrue Holiday saves Pelicans and helps DeMarcus Cousins get first New Orleans victory in 105-97 win against Lakers

The Big 3 goes off; everyone else just plain off A late Jrue Holiday 3-pointer over a motionless Julius Randle, followed by a Jrue iso-steal from Brandon Ingram sealed the deal late night Sunday in a 105-97 win against the Lakers. Los Angeles lost their 7th in a row and haven’t won at home since January(!). The Pelicans got their first win with both DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis active, and they, plus Jrue Holiday, dropped big numbers yet again. Cousins had 26 points and 15 rebounds, serving as the second unit’s primary offensive hub whenever Davis and Holiday left the floor....

Jrue Holiday has proven worthy of inclusion in the New Orleans Pelicans future Big 3

Jrue Holiday has proven worthy of inclusion in the New Orleans Pelicans future Big 3

The current point guard measures up well against other complimentary third pieces from recent dominating trios. Boogie and the Brow. Fire and Ice. Beasts of Bourbon. Whatever you call it, Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, two of the guys averaging a 20-10 in the league, are now teammates in New Orleans. Where, though, does Jrue Holiday fit into the equation? Since the nuclear Boogie trade, the trajectory of the Pelicans has shifted massively. New Orleans has changed from survival, delaying-the-almost-inevitable-departure-of-Anthony-Davis-in-2020 (whether in free agency or trade), to...

Anthony Davis says Jrue Holiday will be busy Wednesday for Pelicans

New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday will take on a more active role on offense with DeMarcus Cousins (suspension) unavailable for Wednesday's game against the Detroit Pistons, according to Anthony Davis. What It Means: Holiday is shooting just 29.0 percent from the field over the past three games since the Pelicans acquired DeMarcus Cousins. With Cousins on the sidelines Wednesday, Holiday should benefit as the unquestioned second option on offense behind Davis. He costs $7,700 on FanDuel and has plenty of appeal as a DFS option. numberFire's models project Holiday...
