   NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- The New Orleans Pelicans say starting point guard Jrue Holiday is sidelined indefinitely with a right ankle injury.
 
   The team says the injury is a stress fracture in his tibia. It is not clear when or how the injury occurred. Holiday played 29 minutes in Wednesday night's 102-96 loss at home to Washington, making three of 11 shots for eight points to go with three assists, three rebounds and three steals.
 
   In 34 games this season, the 6-foot-4 Holiday is averaging 14.3 points, 7.9 assists and 4.2 rebounds. His injury comes while New Orleans struggles to overcome the absence of leading scorer Ryan Anderson, who has been out indefinitely with a herniated disk since last weekend.
 
   New Orleans hosts Dallas on Friday night.
