(WVUE) -

The New Orleans Pelicans were dealt a serious blow as they get set to make a playoff push in the second half of the season, On Wednesday, the team announced that point guard Jrue Holiday has re-aggravated the stress reaction in his lower right leg and will be out of action for at least the next three weeks of the season.

Holiday suffered the injury during the Pelicans' 108-100 loss to the Boston Celtics on Jan. 12. He missed the next 16 games, but was shooting for a return after last weekend's break for the NBA All-Star Game concluded. The Pelicans posted a 9-7 record in his absence.

In 37 games this season as the Pelicans' starting point guard, Holiday was averaging 15.2 points, 7.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game before the injury. Holiday is behind only Anthony Davis and Tyreke Evans in average minutes per game with 33.7.

Evans has assumed the starting point guard role in Holiday's absence.

After the three weeks, the team's medical staff will re-evaluate Holiday and make a follow-up decision then.
