Pelicans’ Jrue Holiday to miss start of season


Pelicans general manager Dell Demps and head coach Alvin Gentry met with Holiday and his agent, Jason Glushon, in early August in Los Angeles to outline a game plan for their star point guard.

“The most important thing for Jrue to do right now is be with his wife and family,” Gentry said in a statement. “Every one of our coaches and players understands what Lauren and Jrue are going through, and they know we’re behind them 100 percent.

“We’ll continue to do everything we can to support them and help them get through these hard times.”
