The New Orleans Pelicans, with just three days remaining on the regular season schedule, decided to waive center Greg Stiemsma (sore knee) on Monday so they could bring in center Melvin Ely. New Orleans is dealing with a bunch of injuries and with just eight healthy players, general manager Dell Demps felt he had to make a late season move.
