NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A week after it was announced that small forward Quincy Pondexter's 2015-16 season would end before it ever began, the Pelicans announced that surgery on his right knee was successful.

The fifth-year veteran, who had the procedure done on the same knee in the offseason, appeared to be nearing a return at a couple points during the regular season, but that will not be the case. He was acquired in a trade in January of 2015 and helped spark a second-half turnaround for Monty Williams' squad, averaging nine points per game on 44.9% shooting.

Pondexter is under contract until the summer of 2018.
