News: Fredette played two minutes against the Lakers Wednesday night, breaking a streak of three straight DNPs.
Impact: Fredette continues to struggle to find a role in the NBA. Despite Jrue Holiday being sidelined with injury, Fredette has played double-digit minutes just five times since the All-Star break. He's behind Norris Cole and Toney Douglas for backup guard minutes.

News: Fredette got 11 minutes Sunday, the most he's played in the last five games.
Impact: The former BYU star has struggled to hold a spot in the Pelicans' rotation, despite the injury to Jrue Holiday. When he has played, he hasn't been the prodigious scorer he was in college, and even his 3-point shooting has been at a career-low mark. Things don't look promising for Fredette's value the rest of the season.
