Jrue Holiday has not yet played on back-to-back nights this season for the Pelicans. That could change Saturday night in Salt Lake City.
The Pelicans point guard is available to play Saturday against the Utah Jazz, a Pelicans spokesman said via text message, adding that Pels coach Alvin Gentry will address Holiday’s status prior to the game.
Forward Anthony Davis (right knee contusion) is listed as probable to play for the Pelicans against the Jazz. Guard Tyreke Evans, who is set to make his season debut soon after October knee surgery, is listed as doubtful.
The Pelicans point guard is playing with a minutes restriction as he recovers from a stress reaction in his lower right leg, and that has prohibited him from playing in back-to-back games so far this season. But Holiday was not listed on the Pelicans’ injury report Saturday afternoon a day after playing 13 minutes in a loss to the Clippers in Los Angeles and was listed as a probable starter for the Jazz game.
Holiday is averaging 11.8 points and 4.8 assists per game for the Pelicans (4-12).
