Eric Gordon says surgery to repair his torn labrum will be considered as a last option.

If Gordon undergoes surgery, his season is guaranteed to be over. With that said, a torn labrum is serious business and Gordon and may not make it back this season regardless of whether he has to undergo surgery at some point. The biggest beneficiary to Gordon's injury is Austin Rivers and he should be added in deeper leagues.

Pelicans have activated Omer Asik for Tuesday's game.

Asik has missed the past four games for the Pelicans due to a back injury. It is safe to deploy him in season long leagues, but would avoid him in DFS formats because I want to see him play a full game before using him for daily.

Omer Asik said he's going to try and play Tuesday night against the Kings.

Asik will give it a try, but considering how the back can so easily tighten up on him, expect his minutes to be limited in this one.

Pelicans are likely to start Darius Miller Tuesday at SF, with Tyreke Evans sliding over to SG in place of Eric Gordon.

This is a golden opportunity for Miller who will get the opportunity to start now. He's only played sparingly thus far in the season, but he'll get a chance now as Gordon is expected to be out for a considerable amount of time.

Pelicans C Omer Asik (back) was able to get some practice time in on Monday.

Asik was a partial participant in their practice as he works his way back from a back injury. He has missed the team's past four games and is questionable for tomorrow's tilt with the Kings.

Eric Gordon is out indefinitely with a torn labrum.

The Pelicans haven't said how significant a tear we are looking at as that would alter the return timetable in a major way. Expect a fairly lengthy absence but wait until the team offers up some more information before doing anything rash. He's not off to the best start of the season so this injury could have Gordon owners really down.

Tyreke Evans scored nine points (4-13 FGA, 1-2 FTA) going 0-for-1 from three-point range with seven rebounds, three assists and three steals in the Pelicans' 106-94 win over the Jazz on Saturday.

Evans has now scored only 19 points over his last two games but found a way to contribute in the Pelicans' win regardless as he continues to fill the stat sheet on a nightly basis. He is averaging 15.5 points, 6.1 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.0 steal through 11 games.

Jrue Holiday scored 19 points (7-16 FGA, 3-4 FTA) going 2-for-2 from three-point range with six rebounds, nine assists and one steal in the Pelicans' 106-94 victory over the Jazz on Saturday.

Holiday is now averaging 15.0 points, 2.6 rebounds, 6.5 assists and 1.5 steals through 11 games as he continues to be a top-10 option at the point guard position. Although he may not be the scoring threat he once was with the Sixers, Holiday finds a way to get the job done on a nightly basis and really makes the future of the Pelicans look promising.

Anthony Davis scored 43 points (16-23 FGA, 11-12 FTA) with 14 rebounds, two steals and one block in the Pelicans' 106-94 win over the Jazz on Saturday.

The legend of Anthony Davis continues to grow, as he posted a career-high 43 points while shooting 69.6 percent form the field to carry the Pelicans to victory. From a fantasy standpoint Davis is having an incredible year and barring a major injury he will remain the top overall option in all formats the rest of the way while filling the stat sheet on a nightly basis.
