In the TIMES-PICAYUNE, John Reid writes that "instead of playing alongside point guard Chris Paul, Peja Stojakovic watched backup Rasual Butler start in place of him Tuesday night. As a precaution, Stojakovic sat out the Hornets' preseason opener against the Dallas Mavericks at the Ford Center because of a strained quadriceps." Coach Byron Scott said that "Stojakovic could be ready for Friday's preseason game against the Orlando Magic."

This doesn't mean a whole much, it's better for him to miss pre season games then regular season games. I am pretty sure that he'll be ready for the season opener, like the article says they're just taking precuations.
