The injury hits keep coming for the New Orleans Pelicans.
Point guard Jrue Holiday and swingman Alonzo Gee are the latest casualties. Both players will miss the final nine games of the season, the club announced on Tuesday.
Holiday has a right inferior orbital wall fracture, the result of a collision late in Monday's win against the New York Knicks.
Gee suffered "a complete rupture of the right proximal rectus femoris" against the Knicks.
Holiday and Gee are the sixth and seventh New Orleans players to be sidelined for the season. Forwards Anthony Davis and Quincy Pondexter and guards Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon and Bryce Dejean-Jones also are out for the remainder of the year. Pondexter has not played this season.
The Pelicans, who are 27-46 and on Monday were eliminated from playoff contention, have lost 267 player games to injury or illness this season.
Even some Pelicans who haven't been ruled out for the season are hurting.
Forward Ryan Anderson has been diagnosed with a sports hernia and will seek a second opinion from a specialist in Philadelphia this week, the team announced. Further details will be announced following further evaluation.
Guard Norris Cole is listed as day-to-day with lower back discomfort.
