New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday will remain out for at least three more weeks after he aggravated a stress reaction in his right leg, the team said Wednesday.

The leg has been an issue for Holiday since last year, when he had surgery and missed 48 games. This season, he has missed 16 games, not playing since Jan. 12.

Holiday was averaging 15.2 points and 7.1 assists before the recent setback. He will be re-evaluated in three weeks, the team said.

Meanwhile, coach Monty Williams said he hopes forwards Anthony Davis and Ryan Anderson will return Friday in Orlando.

Davis has missed the past two games and the All-Star Game with a sprained right shoulder, and Anderson has been out two games with a sore right elbow.

The Pelicans (27-26) have lost three straight games and are 1 1/2 games behind the Phoenix Suns for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.
