Dejean-Jones Undergoes Surgery
Friday, Feb. 26
The Pelicans announced Dejean-Jones' surgery on Friday was successful.
Dejean-Jones Added to Long List of Injured Pelicans Guards
The rookie out of Iowa State has played in just 14 games this season, starting 11 and averaging 5.6 points and 3.4 rebounds per contest.
Prior to joining the team, Dejean-Jones spent time with the Idaho Stampede of the NBA Development League. He went undrafted but was a member of the Pelicans’ 2015 Las Vegas Summer League team, where he averaged 12.8 points per contest and knocked down 50 percent of his three-point attempts, per the team's official website.
Jim Eichenhofer of Pelicans.com thought the injury came at a bad time for Dejean-Jones:
Very disappointing to hear Bryce Dejean-Jones will be out with fractured wrist. Was looking forward to seeing him learn/develop last 26 gms— Jim Eichenhofer (@Jim_Eichenhofer) February 25, 2016
The injury is another on a long list for the 22-34 Pelicans, who are already without guards Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon. Although typically point guards, Jrue Holiday and Toney Douglas could be elevated to a starting role with Dejean-Jones out.
