Jim Eichenhofer, New Orleans Pelicans writer on Pelicans.com, tweeted the following on Holiday's status.
Jrue is out indefinitely. There's no timetable for his return. Last played Jan. 8. RT @dcdaspit No Jrue out there tonight, correct?

On Tuesday it was reported by Sports Injury Alert writer Ryan Venier that Holiday, who has been out since Jan. 10 with a stress fracture in his right tibia, was expected to return in a week, if not sooner. It's difficult to determine exactly what this means for Holiday's status, but it appears to be a long shot that he'll be back within that original timetable of a week.
Brian Roberts and Tyreke Evans will see the majority of minutes at point guard until Holiday returns. Roberts started against the Knicks and had ten points and four assists, in 29 minutes. Evans added eight points and four rebounds in 22 minutes off the bench.
Holiday is in his fifth season out of UCLA. In his first season with the Pelicans, he is averaging 14.3 and 7.9 assists per game. In 332 career games, Holiday is averaging 13.5 points and six assists per game.
