Holiday (rest) will start Friday's game, but sit out Saturday, John Reid of NOLA.com reports. This comes as no surprise as Holiday is still on a minute restriction, and Saturday is the second half of a double-header. The Pelicans are playing it very cautions with their point guard in order to assure future health. Holiday is averaging 12.2 points, 1.5 rebounds, 4.9 dimes, 0.7 steals, 0.4 blocks, and 0.9 triples in 23 minutes per game this season.
Holiday posted 19 points (6-15 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five assists, two rebounds, and one block in 25 minutes Wednesday against the Suns. Holiday has been limited in back-to-backs throughout the season, but it's clear that the extra rest he got before Wednesday's game helped his performance. Still, he has yet to log more than 27 minutes in any game this season, and owners are going to have to be patient with him moving forward.
Holiday will be restricted to 25 minutes of action in Friday's game against the Spurs, John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports. Holiday has been rested the majority of the season, in part due to a lower-leg injury. He is restricted from playing back-to-back sets, which is why he missed Wednesday's game against the Thunder. While he will get the start tonight, he'll see a limited amount of action, which means Ish Smith will most likely see more playing time.
