NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Pelicans say starting point guard Jrue Holiday has undergone surgery for a stress fracture in his right tibia and will miss the rest of the season.

The club says Friday's surgery was successful.

Holiday, a former Eastern Conference All-Star acquired from Philadelphia last summer, has not played because of the shin injury since Jan. 8.

In 34 games played for the Pelicans this season, Holiday has averaged 14.3 points, 7.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game in 33.6 minutes.

The Pelicans disclosed Holiday's condition a few hours before playing in Phoenix on Friday night.

Holiday joins starting centre Jason Smith and high-scoring forward Ryan Anderson as Pelicans regulars missing the rest of the season.
