Holiday (coach's decision) was inactive for Monday's 112-97 win over the Mavericks. Holiday hasn't appeared in any of the Hawks' last eight games and safely appears to be out of coach Mike Budenholzer's rotation.
Holiday (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Tuesday's 121-115 win over the Rockets. Holiday has played just two minutes over the Hawks' last six games. It appears that Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore, Thabo Sefolosha, and Lamar Patterson all rank ahead of Holiday on the depth chart at both wing spots, and none of those players look poised to lose playing time in the near future.
Holiday scored six points (2-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt) in 18 minutes in Wednesday's win over Sacramento. Holiday didn't see a minutes increase despite starting for the first time this season on Wednesday. Holiday put up just three rebounds and one assist in his start, near his averages in each category. The guard will likely be benched when Jeff Teague (ankle) and Kent Bazemore (ankle) return.
Holiday will get his first start of the season versus the Kings Wednesday, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Hawks reports. With Jeff Teague and Kent Bazemore out again, the Hawks have decided to give Holiday a chance to start. Atlanta went big Tuesday, starting Paul Millsap, Al Horford, and Tiago Splitter, but have opted for a more normal sized lineup Wednesday. Holiday will look to take advantage of this starting opportunity.
Holiday will get his first start of the season against Sacramento, Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports. Holiday is usually a bench player for the Hawks but due to Jeff Teague (ankle) being held out with an ankle and the team looking to go with a smaller lineup, Holiday will get the start. Don't expect this to be a regular occurrence, as Holiday is likely to return to his bench role after Wednesday's tilt.
