Jrue Holiday Out Indefinitely - Stress Fracture

The New Orleans Pelicans will be without All-Star PG Jrue Holiday after he was diagnosed with a stress fracture of his right tibia.  Holiday had been playing poorly in the new year averaging just 8.6 points per game with 5.4 assists and 3.2 rebounds.  Those numbers were well below his season average of 14.3 pts, 7.6 ast and 4.2 reb.  Brian Roberts should slide into the starting PG role while Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon should see a boost in production.   Dare I say Austin Rivers will also get extra minutes?!?  This is a Pelicans roster that is already without Ryan Anderson
