Jrue Holiday has missed four games for the Sixers, and the results have been disastrous, as he recovers from a foot injury. But luckily for Philadelphia, the improved point guard returns Friday night against the Atlanta Hawks.

Holiday struggled in his last game with the Sixers, and you could tell he just wasn't right. Holiday's in the midst of a career season and a huge candidate for Most Improved Player.

Holiday's return along with Evan Turner should put the Sixers in a position to get back on track. The question is whether their recent slide can be entirely attributed to injuries or if this team, which started hot last year despite a similarly average level of talent, is starting to regress. The Hawks provide a good test for them, despite Devin Harris being unavailable.
