Lance Stephenson Sidelined Indefinitely

Lance Stephenson has suffered a groin injury and he will need surgery, according to a team press release. Stephenson had an MRI earlier today and a timetable for his return has not yet been established.

Stephenson’s contract is for the minimum, but is only guaranteed for $100K. However, the team will be on the hook for his salary while he recovers from the injury, Bobby Marks of The Vertical notes (Twitter links). Marks adds that the Pelicans could be granted the hardship exception, allowing them to add a 16th player as soon as next Friday. New Orleans is already without point guard Jrue Holiday, who is out of the lineup indefinitely while caring for his wife.

Stephenson signed with the Pelicans during the offseason and beat out Alonzo Gee for a roster spot at the conclusion of the preseason. He averaged 9.7 points and 4.8 assists in 27 minutes per game during the team’s six contests this season.

    He has looked improved since going to Memphis at the end of last year, and was having a nice start to the seaspn, for the most part. Really unfortunate timing for him. Secondly, is it even possible to stay healthy in New Orleans?

      Maybe this is the year they finally draft AD’s running mate.

        Do they have their pick this year?

  2. New Orleans stay having injuries . I don’t understand why they didn’t keep Toney Douglas . He was solid for them last year averaging 9 points 3 assist , shooting 40 percent from 3 point range . He plays the 1 & 2 guard position , that would be a good pick up to get him back .

      Toney douglas isnt good hes a below average nba player. They need to find all stars to play with davis. Trading for multiple draft picks this year and tanking is their best bet. Clear cap space and get players on rookie deals with potential.
