Will you stay here long-term with the Pelicans? Greivis Vasquez: That’s my goal. I don’t want to leave here on these terms, of having two years in a row where we’re struggling and rebuilding. I want a chance to really help my team and lead them to a playoff run. I think it’s going to be very soon. What we’ve got to do this summer as individuals is all get better.

The New Orleans Hornets backcourt had a distinctly different look Monday night against the Denver Nuggets, with a pair of rookies, Brian Roberts and Darius Miller in the starting linup instead of Greivis Vasquez and Eric Gordon. Gordon was scratched because of a sore left ankle, an injury Gordon said he has been fighting recently that worsened after a misstep Friday night against the Memphis Grizzlies.

New Orleans Hornets point guard Greivis Vasquez is officially listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Denver Nuggets after Vasquez rolled his left ankle in Sunday's practice when he stepped on the foot of teammate Terrel Harris. "At practice I hurt it really bad and sprained it a little bit," Vasquez said after Monday morning's shoot-around. "I'm going to get an X-ray. But I feel a lot better, so maybe it's probably a game-time decision. I don't know if I'll be able to go tonight, but I really want to be ready for Wednesday. So maybe I'll just get some rest and be ready for Wednesday." New Orleans Times-Picayune

Having backed up Mike Conley in Memphis as a rookie, and Jack last season, Vasquez said he wasn’t nervous or intimidated when the Hornets decided to put the team in his hands after dealing away Jack. “I was like, ‘This is my shot.’ Timing is everything,” Vasquez said. “Jarrett Jack got me better. I used to go to practice thinking, ‘I have to go at his neck.’ He was going at me. At times he was killing me and it got me better to the point that I’m having the season I’m having right now. But I would trade some of my individual success for more wins. Because my rookie year, I experienced being in the playoffs and I want to get back to that.” Washington Post

Greivis Vasquez: Rest in peace, Hugo Chavez. My condolences to the family of this leader that made a mark in our country's history. It's hard to focus on tonight's game when something so sad and painful is happening in our country. Twitter @greivisvasquez

Pedro Luis Moreira: Greivis Vasquez on the death of Hugo Chavez: "It's a tough loss. We have to stick together as a country at this moment. Whether he did right or wrong, he was a human being. We need a calm transition. We can't start fighting. I spoke with Chavez several times. He was a guy with a presence. He's the best historian I've known. Unfortunately Chavez lost a battle." Twitter

“How often do you get a chance to have the Super Bowl take place in the same city where you live?” said Hornets center/forward Jason Smith, explaining his decision to buy tickets. Smith is joined by Ryan Anderson, Anthony Davis, Eric Gordon, Robin Lopez, Roger Mason and Greivis Vasquez among Hornets players who bought Super Bowl XLVII tickets. Kick-off in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome – which is literally across Girod Street from the Hornets’ home arena – is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Central, giving players plenty of time to rest after a roughly three-hour flight from Minneapolis. Like several of his teammates, Smith said that his preference would have been to root for the Hornets’ NFL brothers, the New Orleans Saints. With no obvious reason to cheer for either participating team, Hornets players are split evenly between Baltimore and San Francisco. NBA.com

“It’s a great opportunity for me to develop my game, to develop my leadership skills, and I think this is a chance that I got to take advantage of because Coach Monty Williams really likes my game,” Vasquez said to HOOPSWORLD. “He likes what I do, and that’s important in the NBA when you get a coach that is really interested in helping you, he wants to help you, he wants to make you better, if you take advantage of that, you can really establish yourself in the NBA.” HoopsWorld
