Jrue Holiday scored four points with four assists and two turnovers in 17 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday.
He really hasn't been 100 percent at all in 2015 and the offseason should help him. There will be a lot of concern next season surrounding his leg injury, so he's justifiably going to fall in drafts. He could wind up being a steal in the late rounds. Apr 25 - 10:34 PM

Jrue Holiday (leg) will try to play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He went through warmups and should be able to play minutes in the teens today. With Holiday active, there will be less playing time going to Norris Cole and Quincy Pondexter. Holiday is not a great fantasy option.

Jrue Holiday (leg) is a game-time decision to play against the Warriors on Saturday.

He played 17 minutes on Thursday and at best he'll have another minutes cap tonight. His brother, Justin Holiday, mentioned Jrue doesn't look the same, but Holiday actually looked decent on Thursday. If he's out, more minutes will go to Quincy Pondexter and Norris Cole.

Jrue Holiday is not listed on the injury report for Game 4 against the Warriors on Saturday.

The Pelicans are trying to avoid a sweep on Saturday, but it's encouraging to see that Holiday will be able to play through some soreness again. His playing time will be limited from here on out, so we don't expect to see him log more than 20 minutes tonight. It's safe to ignore him in daily formats, and it should be noted that his stock is going to be considerably low heading into fantasy drafts next season given his injury history. For what it's worth, Holiday scored 10 points with one rebound, four assists and one block in 17 minutes in Game 3.

Jrue Holiday played 17 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday with 10 points, one rebound, four assists and one block.

He did a decent job of denying Stephen Curry on defense and he also hit two clutch free throws late in the game. Holiday clearly had a minutes cap tonight and that'll continue the rest of the way. Interestingly, his brother Justin, a reserve on the Warriors, had some comments on Jrue before the game. "I think he's taking a chance and he's not himself, doesn't have his explosion," Justin said.

Jrue Holiday (leg) is on the active roster and is expected to play against the Warriors on Thursday.

The Pelicans will likely limit his minutes because he's had so much trouble with his leg since last season. Holiday played 21 minutes in Game 1 before missing Game 2, so he'll likely be in the teens tonight. His minutes should come from Quincy Pondexter and Norris Cole.
Apr 23 - 8:51 PM

Jrue Holiday (leg) is questionable for Thursday's Game 3 against the Warriors.

While Holiday was held out of Monday's Game 2 due to soreness in his leg, he was seen taking shots after practice on Wednesday so there's still a chance he may play Thursday night. We'll be on the lookout for updates, but Norris Cole would be in line to pick up Holiday's minutes if the point guard is unable to suit up.
Apr 23 - 1:14 PM

According to head coach Monty Williams, Jrue Holiday (sore leg) is considered day-to-day.

Holiday was getting in a lot of extra work at practice Wednesday, so it looks like he is gearing up to play in Game 3. Holiday's injury history is troublesome to say the least, so the Pelicans would we wise to proceed with caution. We will pass along any updates on Holiday's status when we know more, but he should still be considered questionable to play for the time being. If he sits out Game 3, Norris Cole will soak up some more minutes off the bench.
Apr 22 - 1:55 PM

Jrue Holiday (leg) will not play against the Warriors on Monday.

There should be more minutes going to Norris Cole with Jrue out of the lineup. The Pelicans gave Holiday 21 minutes in Game 1, so they're probably regretting that. Holiday should be considered questionable to play in Game 3.

Tyreke Evans (knee) and Jrue Holiday (leg) are still game-time decisions to face the Warriors on Monday.

They are both getting treatment and are on track to play right now. Both players also have said they're planning on playing today. We'll look for another update as we approach the 10:30 EDT start time.
Apr 20 - 9:10 PM

Jrue Holiday (leg) said on Monday morning he feels fine and expects to play against the Warriors.

''I'm all right, I'm going to make it,'' Holiday said. Coach Monty Williams said Tyreke Evans and Holiday "are pretty much the same situation," but Holiday's comments contradict that slightly. We probably won't get an update until around 9:00 EDT tonight.
Apr 20 - 6:01 PM

Jrue Holiday (leg) is questionable to play in Game 2 vs. the Warriors on Monday.

He'll be a game-time decision. Holiday is experiencing soreness in his leg, a common theme over the last two seasons as he's dealt with a stress reaction. If the point guard does play, he'll likely be limited to right around 15-20 minutes of action.
Apr 20 - 12:50 PM

Jrue Holiday played 21 minutes against the Warriors on Saturday with four points, two rebounds, five assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The Pelicans needed a little more out of Holiday today because Tyreke Evans could not return from a knee bruise. Holiday didn't play in the final five minutes of this game, so the team likely went into today's game with a minutes restriction in mind due to his leg issues. He'll likely be in the 22-25 minute range in Game 2 on Monday.
Apr 18 - 6:24 PM

Jrue Holiday returned to action on Wednesday and had 11 points and four assists in 25 minutes of Wednesday's win.

The Pelicans are hoping he can get back into a groove for the playoffs, but he's clearly not 100 percent yet after returning from a leg injury. The good news is he played and should be able to get some rest before the playoffs start this weekend. Tyreke Evans had 19 points and 11 assists, Eric Gordon scored 14, while Norris Cole came off the bench to score 13 points. Anthony Davis led the way with 31 points and 13 boards, and the Pelicans will face the Warriors in Round 1 of the playoffs.
Apr 15 - 11:35 PM

Jrue Holiday is active to face the Spurs on Wednesday.

Holiday played well on Sunday with 17 points, so he certainly can help the Pelicans tonight in what's basically a must win. Still, he'll have a minutes cap and isn't a great option in fantasy leagues.
