Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Won't suit up for Play-In
Alvarado (leg) has been cleared to resume on-court activities, but he won't suit up for Wednesday's Play-In Tournament matchup against the Thunder and isn't expected to resume game action for at least one more week, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Alvarado hasn't played since Feb. 27 due to a stress reaction in his right tibia, but it appears he's making solid progress and could be available if the Pelicans secure a spot in the playoffs. However, given his lengthy absence, it may be a stretch to expect Alvarado to play his usual role right away if he can return at some point this season.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Return timetable pushed back
Recent imaging of Alvarado's right tibia has shown incremental improvement, and he will be re-examined in 2-3 weeks.
Alvarado missed the last 10 games due to a stress fracture in his right tibia. His new timetable likely rules out a regular-season return, but he could retake the floor if the Pelicans make the Play-In Tournament. Kira Lewis and Dyson Daniels should continue to see extended minutes in Alvarado's absence.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Sidelined at least three weeks
Alvarado will be re-evaluated in three weeks after being diagnosed with a stress reaction in his right tibia.
Alvarado is far from guaranteed to retake the floor after his re-evaluation, but the team will at least measure where he's at when the date approaches. Without Alvarado available off the bench, the Pelicans will have to turn elsewhere for backup point guard duties. Among the options to see some added minutes are Kira Lewis, Dyson Daniels and Garrett Temple, while Josh Richardson could also slide over to point guard and open minutes for others.... See More ...

Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Returns to bench
Alvarado isn't in the starting five for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
CJ McCollum will replace Alvarado in the starting lineup Wednesday after missing the previous game with an ankle injury. Alvarado is averaging 8.9 points, 2.9 assists, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 20.4 minutes across his previous 47 contests coming off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Added to starting five
Alvarado is starting Monday's game against the Thunder, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Alvarado will step into the starting lineup at point guard in place of CJ McCollum (ankle). Alvarado's last start dates back to Jan. 29 against the Bucks, when he finished with 18 points, three rebounds, six assists and two steals in 29 minutes.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Returning to bench
Alvarado is not in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game at Denver, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
The 24-year-old made a spot start Sunday with CJ McCollum (thumb) and Brandon Ingram (toe) inactive and posted 18 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six assists and three rebounds and two steals in 29 minutes, but he'll shift back to the bench Tuesday with McCollum and Ingram back in the lineup. Alvarado is averaging 9.2 points, 2.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.0 steals in 20.9 minutes when coming off the bench this season.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Posts 18 points in starting role
Alvarado closed Sunday's 135-110 loss to the Bucks with 18 points (4-12 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 7-8 FT), six assists and three rebounds and two steals over 29 minutes.
With CJ McCollum (thumb) and Brandon Ingram (toe) sidelined, Alvarado stepped into the starting five after appearing off the bench in each of his previous 10 contests. Though he shot poorly from the field, Alvarado's strong showings from three-point range and the free-throw line enabled him to finish with his best scoring total since Dec. 9. The 24-year-old has shown the ability to put up solid numbers across the board when given extended run, but if McCollum is back in action for Tuesday's game in Denver, Alvarado could see his playing time drop back into the 20-to-25-minute range....

Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Starting Sunday
Alvarado is starting Sunday's game against the Bucks.
With CJ McCollum (thumb) sidelined for Sunday's matchup, Alvarado will step into the starting lineup for the first time since Jan. 7. Over eight starts this season, he's averaged 10.0 points, 4.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds and 1.9 steals in 27.6 minutes per game.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Scores 17 points off bench
Alvarado finished Tuesday's 99-98 loss to the Nuggets with 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt), one rebound and three assists over 27 minutes.
Alvarado bounced back with an extremely efficient performance Tuesday following a 1-for-8 outing in his previous appearance. The backup point guard has now scored in double figures in four of his past five games and is averaging 11.6 points, 2.8 assists and 1.8 rebounds in 27.6 minutes during that stretch. However, with Brandon Ingram (toe) set to return Wednesday, Alvarado could see his role slightly decrease moving forward.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Rounds out stat line in loss
Alvarado finished with 17 points (6-15 FG, 3-11 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists and one steal in 30 minutes in Friday's 123-110 loss to the Magic.
Alvarado's playing time has been on the rise of late, with the second-year guard reaching the 30-minute mark in three of his past four contests while averaging 11.3 points, 3.5 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 2.3 three-pointers, 1.5 steals and 0.8 blocks over that stretch. If Alvarado can maintain that level of playing time, he would have some appeal in 12-team category leagues, but he'll be a prime candidate to lose some minutes whenever the Pelicans clear Brandon Ingram (toe) or Zion Williamson (hamstring) to play again....

Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Tallies five assists, three steals
Alvarado ended Monday's 113-103 loss to Cleveland with 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and three steals across 34 minutes.
Alvarado had one of his better games in recent memory, logging a season-high 34 minutes in the loss. Seen as a steals specialist, Alvarado had been struggling on the defensive end prior to the last couple of games, recording a combined two steals across seven games. He remains a streaming consideration in standard formats, but as we have seen lately, there is an element of risk associated with him.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Logs 14-and-7 in spot start
Alvarado notched 14 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, seven assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Saturday's 127-117 loss to the Mavericks.
Alvarado moved into the starting lineup Saturday, replacing CJ McCollum, who was given the night off for rest purposes. Despite contributing only one steal, Alvarado did a bit more on the offensive end, totaling 14 points and seven assists. This was his third straight game with double-digit scoring, making him a streaming consideration until the Pelicans return to full strength.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Solid performance off bench Friday
Alvarado closed with 17 points (6-16 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists over 32 minutes during Friday's 108-102 loss to the Nets.
Alvarado didn't shoot the ball particularly well, but he still ended with a decent stat line off the bench. He's now scored in double digits in back-to-back games, but the nature of his bench role and the inconsistencies of his shot make him a tough player to roster outside of deep fantasy formats. He's averaging just 9.9 points per game since the start of December, which is even worse considering that he had a 38-point game against the Nuggets during that span.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Jose Alvarado: Starting against Dallas
Alvarado is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.
CJ McCollum won't play Saturday due to rest, so Alvarado gets the nod in the backcourt next to Trey Murphy. Alvarado has started seven times this season and is averaging 9.4 points, 2.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.0 steals per contests in that role.... See More ... See Less
