    E’Twaun Moore (left quadriceps contusion) dropped from having standard-league late-round value last year to a finish just inside the top-190 this season.

    Moore missed 29 games this season as he became a “load management” guy while the Pelicans limped to the finish. He lost a few minutes per game off of last season’s numbers in which he played all 82 games while shooting 50.8 percent from the floor. Moore did still hit 48.1 percent of his field goals this season, and that decent shooting for a guard remains his best fantasy asset. Next season, expect the 30-year-old Moore to be a steadying veteran, and a part-time starter on a rebuilding club.

    E'Twaun Moore (left quad contusion) is out for Friday's game against the Suns.

    Moore is unlikely to return this season as Alvin Gentry recently admitted. Kenrich Williams and Stanley Johnson will continue to share time on the wing to close out the season. They make for decent cheap dart throws against a weak Suns defense.

    E'Twaun Moore (left quad contusion) is out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

    No surprise here, as Alvin Gentry recently admitted that Moore is likely done for the season. Ian Clark will continue to be the primary option at shooting guard for the time being.

    On Saturday Alvin Gentry admitted that E'Twaun Moore (left quad contusion) is likely done for the season.

    Moore last played on March 6 and the Pelicans have never issued a timetable for his return. He got off to a great start to the year but began missing time regularly after hurting his leg in December. Ian Clark will be the primary shooting guard option from here on out, at least until Frank Jackson (concussion) can return.

    E'Twaun Moore (left quad contusion) will not play on Monday.

    Moore was set to be re-evaluated right around today, so hopefully the Pelicans have some kind of update. Either way, Moore is not likely to make much impact in fantasy circles for the rest of the way.

    E'Twaun Moore (quad contusion) is a potential shutdown candidate for the Pelicans after Alvin Gentry said the team will be "overly cautious," with injury recoveries.

    Moore's absence, paired with the injury to Jrue Holiday and uncertain day-to-day availability of Anthony Davis, will continue to have a trickle-down effect on the Pelicans' rotations. Continue to monitor the situation as there are a lot of streaming plays throughout the Pelicans fluid lineup.

    As of Friday's reports, E'Twaun Moore (quad contusion) will be re-evaluated in 7-10 days.

    This has been a recurring problem for Moore over the last few weeks, as he has been unable to string together full games. With the backcourt weakened in the absence of Jrue Holiday as well, we could see some more Elfrid Payton and Frank Jackson.

    E'Twaun Moore (left quad contusion) has been ruled out of Friday's contest vs. the Raptors.

    This is a lingering injury for Moore, who has missed seven of his team's last 13 games. Moore's absence especially hurts as Jrue Holiday was diagnosed with a lower abdominal strain today and will miss at least 7-10 days. Moore would have been the prime beneficiary of Holiday's absence, but until he can get back, Darius Miller, Frank Jackson and, possibly, Stanley Johnson should see additional run. Elfrid Payton's usage will increase with both Moore and Holiday on the shelf.

    E'Twaun Moore (thigh, load management) is available for Monday's game vs. the Nuggets.

    Moore is back after resting during Saturday's game. When he's out there, he's a deep-league option and sometimes worth streaming for his across-the-board contribution, including good FG% for a guard.

    E'Twaun Moore (thigh, load management) has been ruled out for Saturday's game against the Nuggets.

    Moore had a good game on Friday – 20 points on 5-for-9 shooting – but is only a very deep-league option right now. He's too inconsistent and will have too many load management games down the stretch.

    E'Twaun Moore scored 20 points on 5-for-9 shooting, including 4-for-5 from deep and 6-for-6 from the free throw line in Friday's win over the Suns.

    Moore also managed to pick up two steals, three assists and three rebounds in his 22 minutes of work. Moore had a short stretch of decent games two weeks ago, but has been incredibly hard to trust as of late. He'll have good games like this, but he's in for a lot of rest and has his fair share of stinkers, as well. He's only an option in the deepest of leagues.
