It looks like Quincy Pondexter's knee injury is more serious than first detailed, as Yahoo! reported Pondexter will sit out the remainder of the year and will undergo season-ending knee surgery. -

Pondexter, who meshed well with the roster last season, had not seen the floor all season, which has left a huge void in the Pelican's wing position. None of the other small forwards, Dante Cunningham, Alonzo Gee and Luke Babbitt, have registered more than an 8.0 PER.
Questions over Pontexter's management have now come under question, as Pondexter's initial injury did not seem so serious that he would require to sit out an entire season.
#Pelicans fans are eager to pin this on Demps (and I understand frustration) but medical staff is clearing these guys. He's not a doctor.— Scott Kushner (@ScottDKushner) January 12, 2016
Pondexter averaged 7.2 points per game last season, and shot 37.3 percent from behind the arc.
