New Orleans Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday is out indefinitely after it was determined he had a stress fracture in his right tibia, the team announced Friday. The fifth-year veteran out of UCLA and North Hollywood Campbell Hall High is averaging 14.3 points, 7.9 assists and 4.2 rebounds in 33.6 minutes a game this season. Second-year guard Brian Roberts is expected to start at point guard for the Pelicans. The 6-foot-4 Holiday had a poor shooting effort Wednesday in a 102-96 loss at home to the Washington Wizards, making only three of 11 shots for eight points.

 Aaron Holiday, a junior guard at North Hollywood Campbell Hall who's the younger brother of former UCLA and NBA guard Jrue Holiday, has committed to UCLA, his mother, Toya, said Monday. Holiday averaged more than 30 points a game this season for the Vikings, who lost in the Southern Section Division 4A semifinals last week. In his last three playoff games, Holiday scored 36, 39 and 42 points. His sister, Lauren, plays for UCLA's women's team. His commitment is a triumph for new Coach Steve Alford, who had to re-recruit the family after Jrue's experience under former Coach Ben Howland.

The Lakers lost Tuesday night to the Philadelphia 76ers, 103-99, at Staples Center. Sixers point guard Jrue Holiday was a difficult cover for the Lakers all night, finishing with 26 points and 10 assists in 39 minutes of play. The 22-year old point guard from UCLA is midway through his fourth season, averaging 18.9 points and 8.9 assists for the Sixers. Lakers guard Steve Nash said Holiday's play gave the Sixers a big lift. "Obviously they're a different team with him. We beat them at their place by 20 without him," Nash said (the margin was actually 13 points in the December meeting, 111-98)

Now that UCLA freshman Jrue Holiday has made it official, leaving school early for the NBA draft, the Bruins team he leaves behind is facing a very different outlook for next season. Holiday's departure adds even more uncertainty to a lineup that was already losing senior starters Darren Collison, Josh Shipp and Alfred Aboya. "It is what it is," Coach Ben Howland said. "We move forward."

At a time of year when most college students are peeking ahead to summer vacation, an unexpected number of Los Angeles' best young basketball players are considering a more-permanent exit strategy. Call it "height flight." On Thursday, UCLA freshman Jrue Holiday added his name to a growing list, announcing he will make himself available for the NBA draft in June.

When Jrue Holiday watches the NBA playoffs on television now, he sees the game in a different way. The UCLA guard has spent the better part of two weeks at a Florida training center, gearing up for the possibility of entering the draft in June. In addition to getting stronger, Holiday has learned how the pro game differs from college in terms of spacing, angles and situational play. "In college, it's all about defense," he said. The NBA "seems like it's more fun. You can be you."

The top plays from the NBA's All-Star game invariably repeated themselves in the boy's front yard every year. As a preteen he would throw the ball off the backboard and dunk it, pretending to be Tracy McGrady. So what if the goal was only 7 feet and sometimes the kid's more athletic friends would execute the moves better than he did? He wasn't going to let anyone tell him he couldn't live his immeasurable dream. More than a decade later, Jrue Holiday will head to Houston perfectly content to be himself.

There's no escaping it, not even when Malcolm Lee goes to class, hoping to focus on world culture or history. The other students keep asking Lee and his UCLA teammates about why the basketball season is off to such a rocky start. "They give us a hard time," Lee said. "It kind of bothers us because we know we should be winning." The grumbling extends to fans, alumni and the media, everyone wondering: What has gone wrong? With five straight trips to the NCAA tournament -- including three Final Fours -- UCLA was due to reload.

J'mison Morgan trudged on, without going anywhere. This was game day, hours before UCLA was to play Washington. Morgan, a sophomore center and part of the nation's best recruiting class two years ago, according to Scout.com, was in a hotel fitness center, grinding away on the treadmill. "I need this," Morgan said, as he pushed his 6-foot-10, 240-pound body. The moment seemed symbolic for a UCLA season where the wheels have been spinning, yet with little progress. On that day the Bruins suffered a 29-point loss to the Huskies.

Update: The Lakers will reach the midpoint of their season-long six-game trip after playing Philadelphia, one of the league's biggest surprises. The young, up-tempo 76ers present a striking contrast to the older, plodding Lakers. "It's going to be a matter of whose style of play is dominant enough to win," Lakers guard Kobe Bryant said.

Found: Evidence that a current NBA player is not talking about packing away his talent and taking it overseas if the league-imposed lockout should continue. Jrue Holiday, pioneer. Kidding aside — yes, there have been others willing to wait it out and not add to their frequent flier accounts — Holiday said Monday at UCLA that he has no interest in going elsewhere. "I don't want to go overseas," he said. "I'm not going anywhere. That's pretty much it. I'm more of a homebody.

Questions put to Ben Howland always seem to add up to the same thing: What have you done for us lately? He is the steward of the most storied college basketball program in the land. John Wooden made UCLA basketball exactly that. Win 10 NCAA titles and they write poetry about you. Sit in the same sideline seat as Wooden and they watch your every move while still writing poetry about Wooden. You don't fill Wooden's shoes. You light candles next to them. Howland is seven coaches removed from Wooden and he is honored just to be there.

Not that Jrue Holiday's teammates necessarily want to see him rattled, but they do wonder. What would it take to get under his skin? "I've never met a kid like that," senior Darren Collison says. "Always has the same composure, always has the same look." Steady and calm, even on rough nights, and there have been a few of those at the start of his college career. The freshman guard has seemed a bit tentative once or twice but never had that deer-in-the-headlights gaze.

The guy brought to UCLA to play point guard this season is doing fine. Jrue Holiday has started the last four games for the Philadelphia 76ers. The guy who is actually playing point guard for UCLA has had his struggles. Malcolm Lee , considered an off guard coming from Riverside North High, was one for nine shooting in a 71-66 overtime loss to Oregon on Thursday. With Jerime Anderson injured, Lee has had to handle most of the point guard duties, logging 37 minutes against Oregon's press.
