Holiday underwent surgery Tuesday to repair his core muscle injury and is expected to resume basketball activities in six weeks.
Holiday has been sidelined for almost three weeks with an abdominal strain, and with the Pelicans' season essentially over and his absence giving the team the ability to look at some of its younger frontcourt players, Holiday will officially be shut down. Expect Holiday to be back to 100 percent for the start of training camp next season as he and the Pelicans enter an era that likely will be without Anthony Davis.
Holiday (abdomen) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Hawks.
No surprise here, as the Pelicans are yet to offer much in the way of a progress update on Holiday, who will miss his ninth consecutive contest with an abdominal strain. Expect Frank Jackson to continue to hold onto a significantly larger role so long as Holiday remains out.
Holiday (abdomen) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against Houston.
Holiday will miss his eighth-straight game due to a abdomen strain. Frank Jackson should continue to play a large role in Holiday's absence.
Holiday (abdomen) will remain out Wednesday against the Magic.
The veteran will miss a seventh consecutive game as he continues to nurse a strained lower abdominal. Expect Elfrid Payton, who's been a triple-double machine of late, to continue serve as the Pels' primary playmaker.
Holiday (abdomen) has been ruled out of Monday's game against the Mavericks.
Holiday will miss his sixth straight game as he continues to deal with a strained abdomen. Frank Jackson will likely continue to see a larger role in his absence. Holiday should be considered questionable for Wednesday against the Magic.
Holiday has been diagnosed with a lower abdominal strain and will be re-evaluated in 7-to-10 days, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
Holiday played 32 minutes in Wednesday's loss to Utah, but he emerged with an abdominal injury, and an MRI on Thursday revealed the strain. Given the timetable, Holiday will miss at least four games, meaning second-year guard Frank Jackson will likely be thrust into a larger role. Holiday had been averaging 22.6 points, 6.2 assists and 4.3 rebounds over his last 10 games.
Holiday scored 30 points (12-23 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding four assists, two rebounds and a steal in 32 minutes during Monday's 115-112 win over the Jazz.
With Anthony Davis getting limited court time these days, Holiday has taken over as the Pelicans' top scoring option, dropping at least 20 points in six of the last eight games and averaging 24.3 points, 6.6 assists, 4.6 boards, 2.9 three-pointers and 1.9 steals over that stretch. The 28-year-old was already on pace for a career year, but Holiday's production could find another gear over the final weeks of the season.
Holiday totaled 29 points (10-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five assists, three rebounds, three steals, and one block in 35 minutes during Saturday's 120-112 victory over the Nuggets.
Holiday carried more of the offensive load Saturday with Anthony Davis sitting out for rest purposes. Holiday has been fantastic since the break, scoring at least 20 points in four of his last five games. His steal rate has been excellent as has his perimeter scoring. His minutes don't appear to have been reduced all too much despite what the coaching staff has been saying, leaving him as a comfortable top-30 player.
Holiday had 21 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), nine assists, five rebounds, and two steals in 31 minutes during Friday's 130-116 win over the Suns.
Holiday continues to carry the club both offensively and defensively, though he did struggle with turnovers (six) in this one. While the team has stated its intent to limit Holiday's minutes going forward this season, the high-octane offensive attack facilitates his ability to produce fantasy-friendly stats.
Holiday finished with 19 points (8-19 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 assists, and seven rebounds in 36 minutes during Wednesday's 125-119 loss to the Lakers.
Holiday contributed 19 points and 10 assists Wednesday, continuing to play big minutes despite comments to the contrary by head coach Alvin Gentry only one week ago. Since word came out the Pelicans were going to limit both he and Anthony Davis, Holiday has played at least 33 minutes in three of four games. Owners have to hope the comments were merely a mirage to take the focus off the Anthony Davis situation, and that Holiday continues to see his regular allotment of playing time moving forward.
Holiday finished with 27 points (10-18 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven assists, three rebounds and three steals across 33 minutes in the Pelicans' win over the Lakers on Saturday.
Holiday continues to put up solid nightly scoring totals while dishing to teammates with regularity. He's a great fantasy guard option on any night in most formats, but he's especially lethal when Anthony Davis (rest) misses time.
Holiday will have his minutes reduced following the All-Star break, Andrew Lopez of NOLA.com reports.
In an effort to accurately assess the young talent on the Pelicans, general manager Danny Ferry announced Thursday evening that Holiday and Anthony Davis will both start to see less playing time during the second half of the season. Ferry also noted Holiday's heavy workload during the first portion of the season, so he feels less run will help prevent injury.
Holiday tallied 32 points (12-27 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, three blocks, and two steals in 39 minutes during Thursday's 131-122 victory over the Thunder.
Holiday contributed across the board Thursday, guiding the Pelicans to an impressive victory over the Thunder. Anthony Davis didn't play the second half as he was listed as out with a shoulder injury. The Pelicans could play on this and look to keep him out moving forward and if that is the case, Holiday is going to be very busy on both ends of the floor. If the minutes remain, Holiday is looking at a top-20 finish to the season.
Holiday finished with 27 points (8-21 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 10-10 FT), nine assists, four boards, three assists and one block in 36 minutes Friday in the Pelicans' 122-117 win over the Timberwolves.
Holiday sported a healthy 34.2 percent usage rate during the contest, so the return of Anthony Davis (finger) from a nine-game absence had little impact on the combo guard's overall output. The 28-year-old has been a top-25 fantasy player this season and that seems unlikely to change barring injury, as both his volume and efficiency look relatively sustainable given the context of this Pelicans roster.
Holiday totaled 18 points (6-19 FG, 3-13 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds and a block across 33 minutes in the Pelicans' win over the Bulls on Wednesday.
Holiday continued his recent run of elite-level production across the board in Wednesday's win, notching his second straight double-double in the process. Over his last nine games, Holiday has averaged a monster stat line of 21.6 points, 7.7 rebounds, 7.4 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.0 steals. Fantasy owners should keep rolling with him, especially if Anthony Davis (finger) remains out of the lineup.
Holiday scored 19 points (6-15 FG, 0-7 3Pt, 7-9 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, nine assists, a steal and a block in 39 minutes during Monday's 109-107 loss to the Pacers.
Despite his poor shooting night, Holiday fell just short of his first triple-double of the season and the fourth of his career. The 28-year-old guard is already on pace for a career season, but if the Pelicans do trade away Anthony Davis (finger), Holiday's usage and production could rise as he takes on more offensive responsibility.
Holiday registered 19 points (6-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), eight assists, six rebounds, six blocks and one steal across 38 minutes Tuesday in the Pelicans' 121-116 win over the Rockies.
Holiday's career-high six rejections might have been one of the NBA's biggest statistical anomalies of the season, as the combo guard had been averaging 0.8 blocks per game over the Pelicans' first 50 contests of 2018-19. The defensive production helped salvage what was an otherwise down night for Holiday, who saw his streak of 20-point games end at six while suffering his worst shooting night from the field since Jan. 14. His fantasy stock will remain on a general upswing for the duration of Anthony Davis' (finger), which is expected to extend until at least Saturday's game in San Antonio.
Holiday scored a game-high 29 points (9-20 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 8-12 FT) while adding seven rebounds, three assists and a block in 34 minutes during Saturday's 126-114 loss to the Spurs.
With Anthony Davis (finger), Julius Randle (ankle) and Nikola Mirotic (calf) all sidelined, Holiday was the lone consistent scorer in the Pelicans' lineup, and he responded with his sixth straight game of 20-plus points. The guard is now averaging a strong 21.9 points, 6.3 assists, 5.9 boards, 1.8 three-pointers and 1.8 steals through 12 games in January.
Holiday collected 22 points (9-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 13 assists, nine rebounds, four steals, and one block in 37 minutes during Thursday's 122-116 loss to the Thunder.
Holiday has scored at least 20 points in five straight contests. This was also his second double-double in the last three games and 15th of the campaign, putting him on pace to surpass his previous career high of 20 double-doubles through 78 games back in 2012-13. Moreover, Holiday matched his season high in steals, finishing with four takeaways for the fourth time through 49 appearances, and he's maintaining career-high per-game averages in points, rebounds, assists, steals, and threes.
Holiday ended with 29 points (14-24 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven assists, and five rebounds in 38 minutes during Wednesday's 98-94 loss to the Pistons.
Holiday scored at least 20 points for the fifth time in his last six games, continuing to pick up some of the offensive slack created by the injury to Anthony Davis (finger). Holiday has shot at least 56 percent from the field in three consecutive games and as per normal, continues to fly under the radar as one of the most underrated guards in fantasy, currently, the 21st ranked player in standard formats.
