METAIRIE, La. Basketball Jerseys China . -- Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday will play for the first time this season on Friday night against the Portland Trail Blazers, general manager Dell Demps said Tuesday.Meanwhile, guard Tyreke Evans returned to practice on a non-contact basis Tuesday. Demps said it is unclear when Evans will play, but that he appears to be in great shape.Holiday has been on indefinite leave since summer to care for his wife, retired international soccer star Lauren Holiday, who had brain surgery last month, just weeks after giving birth to the couples daughter.The Pelicans play in Orlando on Wednesday night, and Demps said Holiday is slated to practice with the team on Thursday before making his debut the following night in what will be New Orleans 13th game of the season.Demps said he expects Holidays return to be gratifying for Pelicans players and staff on both personal and professional levels.Hes just a great person -- just bringing him back and getting him back with the group, from a social standpoint, is most important, Demps said. From a basketball standpoint, we dont want to put pressure on him and make him feel like hes the savior.Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said he wasnt certain whether Holiday, who has been working out on his own in North Carolina the past couple months, would start or how much hed play.I just know we wont play him 35 minutes the first game back, Gentry said. Were not going to do anything like that. I think weve got to be smart about it. Hes been working out twice a day. Hes in great shape. Theres a big difference in being in great shape and being in basketball shape.New Orleans has won just two of its first 11 games, but also two of its last three after and 0-8 start.Its good for us -- a big, key component to our team that were able to get back, said forward Anthony Davis, who has been averaging 30.5 points, 11.2 rebounds and 2.9 blocks, but has lacked the help he need to produce more victories. Its good for everybody and well try to get this thing going.Holiday is expected to return as healthy as he has been in several seasons.He began last season on minute restrictions following his rehabilitation from a nagging lower leg injury that had sidelined him for much of the 2013-14 and 2014-15 campaigns.A former Eastern Conference All-Star with Philadelphia before his trade to New Orleans in 2013, Holiday wound up playing in 65 games with 23 starts during the 2015-16 season, averaging 16.8 points, 6.0 assists, 3.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 28.2 minutes per game. He scored 20 or more points 25 times and recorded six double-doubles.Jrues very good offensively and very good defensively, Davis added. Hes going to bring that passion, that energy, that fight. So its going to be good to have him back on the floor for us and have Jrue being Jrue.Tim Frazier has been starting in Holidays place this season, averaging 11.4 points and 7.9 assists. He said hes been in constant contact with Holiday, particularly after games to ask for his evaluation.Coming from the point guard spot, I know what you see outside is different from what I see on the court, Frazier said. He just told me what hes seeing and hes been positive, telling me to keep my head up and continue to fight and that he was on his way back soon.As for Evans, the Pelicans will gradually ramp him up to contact practices within the next couple weeks, Demps said, raising the prospects that the versatile 6-foot-6 guard and wing player could be playing in early December.Itll all be based on how his rehab goes in the next days, weeks, Demps said, peering through a conference room window with a view of Evans running through basketball drills on the practice court. If you just look at him right now, its pretty close.Demps said the Pelicans also hope by the end of next week to receive a medical update on small forward Quincy Pondexters recovery from multiple knee surgeries, which might provide a clearer timetable on his return.

Thomas Leuluais NRL career will not draw to a close on Sunday with tears or speeches or wistful glances around Mount Smart Stadium.Hes not even sure, he says, if his own mother will come.But the 31-year-old does hope his final Warriors outing ends with the satisfaction of victory and a few cold ones with the boys.Leuluai has played six years with the Warriors in two separate stints, making his 85th and final appearance for the club this weekend against Parramatta.Hell return to English club Wigan in the off-season, where he previously enjoyed a successful six-year spell.But the self-effacing Kiwi wont be getting too sentimental about it.I wont be crying in the sheds or anything like that, Leuluai said.Dont get me wrong, Ill miss this place and love all the people here.But Im just one part of the team.In his time in Auckland, Leuluai has played just one season of finals football - his first in 2003 when the Warriors fell in the semi-final to eventual premiers Penrith.He said the teams failure to make the finals in 2016, particularly given the Warriors late collapse last week against the Tigers, was a regret that would linger for some time.Yet the five-eighth was confident the Warriors would make progress without him.Theres a lot of good young players coming through, so Im pretty sure there wont be any trouble going forward, Leuluai said.Weve definitely improved from when I first came here and even from the start of the year.Head coach Andrew McFadden lauded Leuluai for his professionallism and skill. Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys. He said Leuluai was a pleasure to coach.He has a very uncompromising character and hes a great leader in our team, McFadden said.Hes someone were going to miss.Leuluai, who expressed his wish to see McFadden stay in the top job despite overseeing yet another unsuccessful finals tilt, hoped to go out on a high against Parramatta.The Eels have been dogged by problems off the field in 2016, including a salary cap breach that saw them docked 12 points.Star recruit Kieran Foran also quit the club with mental health issues, playmaker Corey Norman was suspended for drug possession and Jarryd Hayne snubbed his former side for the Titans.Leuluai was impressed by the Eels efforts in the circumstances.Its a credit to them that theyve been out of the playoffs for a long time but been playing some really good football, he said.I just want to finish with a win so we can all sit around and enjoy it and have a beer.STATS THAT MATTER:* The Warriors have won nine of their past 13 matches against the Eels, including their last three NRL encounters.* Five of the past six matches between the two sides have seen more than 45 points scored.* Only the last-placed Knights have conceded more points per game (33.6) than the Warriors (24.4) in 2016.* Parramatta have lost their past five away matches for the first time in three years.(SOURCE: FOX SPORTS LAB) Cheap Adidas Hockey Jerseys Wholesale College Jerseys Cheap Nike Basketball Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping Cheap Jerseys From China Wholesale Nike NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Wholesale Nike NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Authentic Cheap MLB Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Soccer Jerseys China Cheap NCAA Jerseys China Stitched NFL Jerseys Cheap Custom Jerseys China Cheap Basketball Jerseys Authentic NFL Jerseys China Cheap College Jerseys Wholesale Football Jerseys' ' '
