Holiday was solid again Thursday, almost helping his team to an upset road victory. He has been one bright spot for the Bulls this season, and along with Kris Dunn, appears locked into the starting guard position for the time being. Zach LaVine is near a return, however, and will almost certainly take some time away from Holiday. The Bull are in no rush to get LaVine back into full swing though, so there is still some time for Holiday to maintain his current value.
Holiday had 25 points (9-15 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists, three rebounds, three blocks, and two steals in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 104-99 loss to the Suns.
Holiday finished with a career high in treys and matched his career high in assists while filling up the box score across every category. Holiday has had his fair share of rough shooting nights while operating as one of the top offensive options, but fantasy owners in leagues that primarily value counting stats can't really complain. The eventual return of Zach LaVine (knee), who could be back by mid-December, might cut into Holiday's share of shots. Nevertheless, it may help him improve his overall efficiency.
Holiday scored a season-high 27 points (10-15 FG, 4-7 3 PT) in a 123-120 win over the Charlotte Hornets on Friday.
Holiday also added three rebounds and three steals to his tally. as his 36 minutes played were the highest in two weeks. The role should be there for Holiday to score consistently too, as he has taken double-digit shots in every game this season. The next step for Holiday is to add some peripheral statistics, as his 1.6 assists, 0.8 steals and 0.4 blocks are below par for fantasy relevant players.
Holiday (personal) will play and start in Friday's game against the Hornets, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Holiday was absent from Wednesday's blowout loss to the Thunder due to the birth of his child, but he'll be set to start and likely play his regular dosage of minutes Friday. As a result, either Jerian Grant or Kris Dunn are expected to return to the bench, but coach Fred Hoiberg is yet to decide which one will remain in the starting lineup.
Holiday won't play during Wednesday's game against the Thunder due to the birth of his child, K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune reports.
With Holiday out of the picture, coach Fred Hoiberg is reportedly leaning to start Grant and Dunn in the backcourt. They, along with Denzel Valentine, could all make for solid DFS options while Holiday is absent. Holiday will likely be back for Friday's game against the Hornets.
