Holiday (toe) will not play Thursday against the Bucks, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports. Holiday will miss his second game in a row due to a right toe sprain. Justin Holiday should receive another start with his brother sidelined.
Holiday (toe) is questionable for Thursday's contest against the Bucks. A sprained toe caused Holiday to miss Tuesday's game against the 76ers, but he could be back in action Thursday. Across his past eight appearances, he's averaged 8.8 points, 4.0 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.1 steals in 24.1 minutes.
Holiday will not play Tuesday against Philadelphia due to a sprained big toe on his right foot. The injury was not listed on the initial report, but it will keep the guard sidelined as the Pacers play on the second half of a back-to-back. Aaron's brother, Justin, will get the starting nod at shooting guard Tuesday.
Holiday will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the 76ers, Tony East of the West Indianapolis Community News reports. With Edmond Sumner rejoining the starting five, Holiday will shift back to a bench role after starting the previous two games. With Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) and Jeremy Lamb (knee) still out, Holiday should continue to see a fair amount of playing time as a reserve.
Holiday finished with 15 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five assists, four rebounds and two steals across 31 minutes Thursday in a 133-126 victory over Atlanta. The third-year guard remained in the starting lineup in place of Malcolm Brogdon (hamstring) and notched his fourth game of double-digit scoring in his past five contests. Prior to the five-game stretch, Holiday had not exceeded eight points over his previous 10 games. That highlights the up-and-down nature of Holiday's season, during which he has averaged 7.3 points, 1.8 assists and 1.0 three-pointers per contest.
