With only six games remaining in the regular season, Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday's possible return still remains in question because of his stress reaction injury in his lower right leg. And although coach Monty Williams hasn't ruled out hope for Holiday's possible return, it is starting to appear doubtful. If the Pelicans do decide to pull the plug on Holiday's return, it will be made in collaboration from Mickey Loomis, the Pelicans executive vice president, General Manager Dell Demps and Williams. ''Mickey obviously will make the last call on that, but I am sure that's on the table,'' Williams said. New Orleans Times-Picayune
Last season, Holiday was limited to playing only 34 games after he suffered fracture i that required surgery to implant a steel rod in right tibia. ''I know we don't have as many games left, but my hope is that he can play this year and help us,'' Williams said. ''Even if it's in a limited role. I hate to say day to day. But it does have that kind of feel, especially when you have limited games to go. I still don't know. I hope it's tomorrow. ''His (point guard) position, that's a tough position to come back and play effectively after you've been out almost 40 games.'' New Orleans Times-Picayune

After having a promising season cut short in January by a season-ending stress fracture in his right tibia, New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday was back penetrating between defenders Thursday at the team's practice facility. For the first time in six months after requiring surgery and having an extended rehabilitation schedule, he was finally cleared for contact work against his teammates this week for volunteer offseason drills.
