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:

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.
