    Update: Gee (quad) officially re-signed Thursday with the Pelicans on a one-year, $1.4 million contract, Michael Scotto of Sheridan Hoops reports.

    Analysis: Gee is expected to once again fill a depth role in his second season with the Pelicans, though he'll likely see his playing time drop a bit after averaging 22.4 minutes per game across 73 appearances in 2015-16. The 30-year-old suffered a ruptured right quad muscle in late March that cost him the rest of the season, but the expectation is that he'll be ready to go for training camp.

    Update: Gee (quad) is close to finalizing a one-year contract to re-sign with the Pelicans, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.

    Analysis: It appears Gee's agent and the Pelicans are still hammering out some minor details, but it looks like the swingman will head back to New Orleans after suiting up in 73 games a season ago. He often played out of necessity due to the vast number of injuries up and down the roster, but offered precious little production during his time on the court, averaging 4.5 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist across 22.4 minutes per game. The 30-year-old journeyman has played for six different teams during his seven-year career, so Gee will finally gain some stability by rejoining the Pelicans. However, if the team remains healthier this season, Gee's playing time will likely fall by the wayside.

    Update: Gee suffered a ruptured right quad muscle in Monday's win over the Knicks and has been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

    Analysis: Gee becomes the seventh Pelicans player to succumb to a season-ending injury, after the team also announced Tuesday that Jrue Holiday (eye) would be shut down for the year. Prior to Monday's game, the 28-year-old had been in the midst of his best two-game stretch of the season, as he'd averaged 17.5 points, 5.5 boards, and 1.5 assists in 41 minutes. He likely would have been in line for a similarly huge workload over the last two weeks of the season due to the lack of healthy players on the roster, but instead, he'll be just another name of the Pelicans' lengthy injury list. His ability to avoid injury up to this point in the season afforded him much more run than the Pelicans likely envisioned heading into the season, as he'll wrap up the 2015-16 campaign with modest averages of 4.5 points (on 51.8% shooting), 3.4 rebounds, one assist, and 0.9 steals over 22.4 minutes across 73 appearances.

    Injury: YES

    Injury Status: OUT

  • Mar 27 2016, 06:56 AM

    Update: Gee scored 18 points (8-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in 41 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Raptors.

    Analysis: He was one of the few bright spots for the short-handed Pelicans in a 24-point loss, and Gee is likely to continue seeing big minutes and produce solid numbers down the stretch given the team's lack of other options to generate any kind of offense.

    Update: Gee will return to the starting lineup Thursday against Indiana, Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star reports.

    Analysis: Gee has cycled in and out of the starting five this season due to various injuries to his teammates, but his addition Thursday is the result of Jrue Holiday sitting out with a toe injury. It's unclear how severe Holiday's injury is, so there's a possibility Gee will have added playing time even beyond Thursday.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Mar 22 2016, 07:00 AM

    Update: Gee has been coming off the bench in New Orleans, but has topped 20 minutes in eight straight games for the injury-ravaged Pelicans.

    Analysis: With the Pelicans hurting for offensive options given injuries to Anthony Davis, Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon, the opportunity is there for Gee to take a bigger role in the offense. Although the scoring hasn't materialized yet for Gee, he has grabbed nearly five rebounds per game this month.

    Update: Gee will return to the starting lineup in Monday's matchup with the Warriors, Jennifer Hale of Fox Sports reports

    Analysis: Gee will start in his first game since Feb. 28. The Pelicans are going with a small lineup to matchup with the Warriors, and have opted to include Gee in it. His minutes have been all over the board lately, but he should see a decent workload in this outing. The Pelicans have adjusted their starting lineup quite a bit recently due to injuries, so it is unclear which direction the will go moving forward.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Gee was held without a point and contributed two assists and one rebound over 23 minutes while making the start at shooting guard in Thursday's 123-119 victory over the Thunder.

    Analysis: With Bryce Dejean-Jones out indefinitely following the news that he'll require surgery Friday to address a fractured wrist, Gee got the first crack at replacing him in the starting five, and as expected, he provided a minimal impact in the box score, which has been par for the course all season. While Dejean-Jones remains out of the picture, Toney Douglas (12 points, four rebounds in 14 minutes) figures to be one of the bigger beneficiaries of added playing time, and makes for a more attractive roster option than Gee in deeper leagues due to his superior scoring ability. That being said, neither Douglas nor Gee may hold down expanded roles for long, as Eric Gordon's impending return from a fractured finger will likely result in both players seeing reduced minutes off the bench.

    Update: Gee is expected to start at shooting guard Thursday against Oklahoma City, Pelicans radio announcer Sean Kelley reports.

    Analysis: With the Pelicans releasing a statement Thursday announcing that Bryce Dejean-Jones would undergo surgery on his broken wrist Friday, Gee is the likeliest candidate to take over at shooting guard against the Thunder. In 34 starts this season, Gee's numbers haven't been overly impressive. He has averaged 4.0 points and 3.1 rebounds in those contests and figures to be reinserted into the starting lineup for Thursday.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Gee recorded four points, one assist, one rebound, and one steal with 33 minutes in Thursday's 95-121 loss to the Thunder.

    Analysis: Gee joined the starting lineup Thursday and recorded 33 minutes for the Pelicans. However, he didn't make much of an offensive impact as he scored a mere four points and provided a single assist for New Orleans. The small forward may not continue to see starting minutes as Bryce Deajean-Jones (contract) could get resigned and Eric Gordon (finger) could return shortly after the break.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Gee provided three points (1-4 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and four rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench in Saturday's 99-84 loss to the Cavaliers.

    Analysis: Meanwhile, Dante Cunningham, who replaced Gee as the starting small forward, played 31 minutes and tallied six points and three rebounds. It remains possible that a few poor performances from Cunningham could allow Gee to reclaim his starting role, but the job battle isn't really worth tracking, as both players are limited offensively and can't be relied on to produce useful counting stats even in large chunks of court time.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

    Update: Gee will move to a bench role Saturday against the Cavaliers, Pelicans announcer Sean Kelley reports.

    Analysis: Dante Cunningham will get to try his hand at running with the starters Saturday, although he attempted just one shot in 32 minutes in his last game. Tyreke Evans has been ruled out through the All-Star break, so Gee should still see some quality run over the next four games, but his value is trending down.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Jan 26 2016, 12:04 PM

    Update: Gee continued to start at small forward and produced five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 0-2 FT), a season-high 10 boards, two steals, and one assist over 33 minutes in Monday's 112-111 loss to the Rockets.

    Analysis: Even though Dante Cunningham (illness) was able to return from a one-game absence, Gee still held down the top spot on the depth chart at small forward. Gee had been frequently seeing more court time than Cunningham prior to the latter's absence last Saturday against the Bucks, so Gee won't see much of a bump in his fantasy value despite the role change.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Gee is in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against Milwaukee, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Analysis: With Dante Cunningham sidelined due to illness, Gee will move into the starting five for Saturday's contest. In 26 starts this season, Gee is averaging 3.6 points (on 3.2 FGA), 3.2 rebounds, and 1.2 steals over 22 minutes. He has played more minutes of late, averaging 26 mpg over his last five outings, but has not scored in double digits in any of those contest.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Jan 14 2016, 11:18 AM

    Update: Gee has been used off the bench in the Pelicans' last four games and has provided averages of 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds over 10.3 minutes.

    Analysis: Gee certainly wasn't lighting it up when he occupied the starting role at small forward, but with his minutes roughly cut it half over the last four games, he's essentially useless for fantasy purposes. Dante Cunningham has since taken over as the starting small forward, but with the likes of Anthony Davis, Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon, Ryan Anderson, and Jrue Holiday attempting the vast majority of the team's shots, there just haven't been enough touches to go around for Cunningham or Gee to make much of an impact.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Dec 30 2015, 06:31 AM

    Update: Gee remains the starter in New Orleans, but has played a very limited role in the offense.

    Analysis: Gee has logged better than 20 minutes per game in the month of December, but has mustered averages of just 4.4 points and 2.3 rebounds per game. As long as the Pelicans stay healthy, the likes of Ryan Anderson, Tyreke Evans, Eric Gordon and others will usurp any chance Gee has to be a major contributor on the offensive end.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Dec 15 2015, 10:54 AM

    Update: Gee played only 10 minutes in Monday's 105-101 loss to the Trail Blazers, finishing with zero points and one assist.

    Analysis: Gee saw 37 minutes in the Pelicans' previous game against the Bulls, but that can at least partially be attributed to Ryan Anderson's absence due to a stomach virus. With Anderson back Monday, Gee saw fewer than 20 minutes for the fourth time in five games. The Pelicans are healthier now than at any point they've been this season, which should only result in Gee's role declining further from here. The 29-year-old is averaging 4.3 points, two rebounds, and 1.3 assists over the Pelicans' last seven games.

    Injury: NO

    Injury Status: No

  • Dec 02 2015, 12:34 PM

    Update: Gee continued to start at small forward during Tuesday's loss to the Grizzlies, finishing the evening with six points (3-4 FG) and one rebound over 28 minutes.

    Analysis: Although the Pelicans returned Tyreke Evans (knee) and Norris Cole (ankle) to action Tuesday to put the team at close to full strength for the first time all season, Gee surprisingly didn't see a reduction in his role. Rather than Gee, the versatile Evans ended up replacing Eric Gordon in the starting lineup, and that arrangement figures to hold for at least another game or two. Even if Gee's playing time remains stable as the Pelicans reintegrate Evans and Cole, Gee isn't likely to see much usage offensively and doesn't post any particularly notable production in the defensive categories, making him rather uninteresting from a fantasy perspective.
