(New Orleans Pelicans) Jrue Holiday played through injuries last season and ended up missing the final 48 games due to a stress fracture in his shin. After the 2013 All-Star point guard showed signs of discomfort during halftime Monday’s game in Boston, he was pulled from the action as a precaution. Tyreke Evans started in his place for New Orleans to begin the third quarter. Holiday won’t play tonight at Detroit, either, as he deals with inflammation in his right ankle.

“We think it’s day-to-day, but we’re not going to put a timetable on Jrue,” Pelicans fifth-year head coach Monty Williams said. “One thing our fans have to understand is that if Jrue is in pain, he’s in pain. He plays through a lot of stuff. Last year he played with a broken elbow that nobody even knew about, because he played right through it. I had to be his brains the other day (in Boston). I had to sit him down. He wanted to continue (to play), but I didn’t like what I saw from him. It was tough for me to do that, but we always look out for our players.”
