Jrue Holiday has been ruled out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his right tibia, his team announced today.

It is not yet clear how or when the New Orleans Pelicans point guard picked up the injury but Holiday did play 29 minutes in the Pelicans home loss to the Washington Wizards on Wednesday.

Holiday joins the likes of Chris Paul, Kobe Bryant and Derrick Rose who have all suffered long-term injuries this season.

The loss of Holiday is a huge set back for the Pelicans who are currently in 11th place in the Western Conference.

Holiday has averaged 14.3 points 7.9 assists 4.2 assists in 34 games this year.

The Pelicans are also missing leading scorer Ryan Anderson who is also out indefinitely with a herniated disc.

Holiday was drafted by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2009 draft. In 2013 he was traded to the Pelicans in exchange for Nerlens Noel and the Pelican's 2014 first round pick.
