    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Fills out stat sheet in Thursday loss

    Holiday collected 23 points (11-20 FG, 1-4 3Pt), six assists, four rebounds and five steals over 32 minutes in Thursday's 121-95 loss to the Thunder. The 25-year-old continued the outstanding level of thievery he's displayed so far in February, with his five steals Thursday bringing his total over the last six games to 15. Holiday has been equally proficient on the other side of the ball over that span as well, providing solid contributions on the glass, dishing out nine assists on three different occasions, and managing double-digit scoring in each contest. Holiday continues to be the most dependable source of all-around production in a Pelicans backcourt that has been worn thin by injuries to Tyreke Evans (knee) and Eric Gordon (finger), and most recently, the contract status of Bryce Dejean-Jones.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Contributes 21 points and nine assists during Wednesday's win

    Holiday contributed 21 points (9-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine assists and six rebounds over 31 minutes during Wednesday's win against the Jazz. Holday's nine assists is his highest single-game total this season. As the Pelicans continue to deal with backcourt injuries, he has found ample room to produce in the depleted Pelicans offense. Holiday is averaging 17.8 points this calendar year on 14.8 shots per game while shooting just over 45 percent during that span. Holiday should be relied on primarily for his scoring, but he can also contribute assists and rebounds as well.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Big game leads to win over Minnesota

    Holiday exploded for 27 points (11-23 FG, 2-2 FT, 3-7 3Pt), nine assists, six rebounds and three steals in just 28 minutes off the bench in Monday's win over the Timberwolves. Although he operated as a reserve Monday, Holiday was essential to the winning effort, as he scored 20 points in just 14 first-half minutes to help New Orleans build a 17-point lead that they would never relinquish. Holiday has seen increased playing time and usage since Tyreke Evans went down with an injury, and he is now averaging 20.1 points to go along with 6.9 assists per game over the last eight. Evans is expected to sit out until after the All-Star break, leaving Holiday with an expended role for at least two more games.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Contributes 19 points in Thursday defeat

    Holiday contributed 19 points (9-20 FG, 1-6 3Pt), nine assists, a steal and a block over 34 minutes in Thursday's 99-96 loss to the Lakers. The veteran provided some much-needed production on a night where starting point guard Norris Cole could only pitch in two points. Holiday continues to serve as one of the Pelicans' most dependable sources of offensive production for a depleted backcourt that has been rendered thin in the wake of injuries to Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon. The 25-year-old is now averaging a solid 18.7 points, 7.3 assists and 2.6 rebounds over 28.8 minutes in his last 10 games.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Scores 20 points Wednesday

    Holiday had 20 points (8-18 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five assists, four rebounds, and two steals in 30 minutes during the Pelicans' 110-97 loss to the Spurs on Wednesday. Holiday turned the ball over three times, but overall this was much better than Monday's 1-for-14 outing versus the Grizzlies. Even counting that recent dud, Holiday is averaging 21.4 points on 42 percent from the field, 6.6 assists, 3.2 rebounds, one steal, and 0.4 blocks in 30 minutes per appearance over the last five games. Despite the fact that he is still coming off the bench, Holiday is a valuable commodity across all fantasy formats. The Lakers are particularly putrid defensively, so Holiday and the Pelicans could put up a lot of points on Thursday despite it being the second night of a back-to-back.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Plays miserably in loss to Grizzlies

    Holiday was limited to four points (1-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four assists, two blocks, and one rebound across 27 minutes in Monday's 110-95 loss to the Grizzlies. The Pelicans really needed Holiday to step up in this game with Tyreke Evans (knee) still sidelined, but the point guard couldn't come through, as he was bottled up by the Grizzlies' backcourt trio of Mike Conley, Tony Allen, and Mario Chalmers. It's probably best for fantasy owners to consider the dismal outing an aberration for Holiday, who had been averaging 24 points on 49.3 percent shooting to go along with 8.3 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 1.8 three-pointers, and 1.5 steals over the preceding four games.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Scores 26 in Saturday's win

    Holiday scored 26 points (10-19 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT) while adding seven assists in 24 minutes off the bench during Saturday's win over the Nets. Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry has elected to keep Holiday on the second unit despite injuries to Tyreke Evans (knee) and Eric Gordon (finger), but Holiday has still taken advantage of his increased usage by posting three straight 25-plus point performances, averaging an outstanding 27.7 points, 8.0 assists, 3.7 boards, 2.0 threes and 1.0 steals during that streak. Evans could return as soon as Monday against the Grizzlies, however, so Holiday is likely to slow down next week.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Pours in 25 points in Thursday victory

    Holiday poured in 25 points (8-24 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 8-8 FT), eight assists and five rebounds over 34 minutes in Thursday's 114-105 victory over the Kings. Despite the tough shooting night, it was encouraging to see Holiday remain aggressive throughout the contest. His heavy involvement was evidenced by the veteran putting up over 20 shot attempts for the second consecutive night, while equaling a season high with eight free-throw attempts. With the depleted condition of the Pelicans backcourt, Holiday also played over 30 minutes for the second straight game, a trend that could continue in New Orleans' next game versus Brooklyn on Saturday if Tyreke Evans (knee) continues on the shelf. Of note as well is Holiday's outstanding ball distribution over the last three games, during which he's averaged 8.7 assists.

    Pelicans' Jrue Holiday: Season-high in scoring as injuries mount

    Holiday scored a a season-high 32 points (13-21 FG, 4-5 FT, 2-5 3Pt) to go along with nine assists, six rebounds, and three steals across 36 minutes in Monday's loss to the Rockets. Already down Eric Gordon in the backcourt, the Pelicans loss Tyreke Evans and Anthony Davis to injuries, opening the door for Holiday to step in as the go-to option in the narrow loss. New Orleans has made a clear effort to limit Holiday's playing time this season because of his checkered injury history, but he could be thrust into a larger role of Evans and Davis are forced to miss any time. The duo will have a couple of days to heal up before New Orleans hosts Sacramento.
