Jrue Holiday finally moved into the starting lineup on Tuesday and had 22 points, two rebounds, five assists, a steal and four 3-pointers in 29 minutes of a 105-88 win over the Lakers.
Holiday is rolling and the move back to the starting unit couldn't have come soon enough. He's averaging 15.4 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.6 blocks and 1.8 3-pointers on 47 percent shooting over his last five games. He was clearly worth the wait. Nov 29 - 10:37 PM

Jrue Holiday will start against the Lakers on Tuesday, sending E'Twaun Moore to the bench.

Alvin Gentry hinted earlier that Holiday would start and it sounds like it could be a permanent switch. Holiday is averaging 27.0 minutes per game this season, but he should be able to eclipse the 30-minute mark tonight. He will start alongside Tim Frazier in the backcourt.
Nov 29 - 7:22 PM

Alvin Gentry said, "there's a possibility" that Jrue Holiday will start Tuesday vs. the Lakers.

Holiday has been solid off the bench this season, and his fantasy stock will only improve once he's running with the starters. Gentry also said that a starting backcourt of Holiday and Tim Frazier is a "pretty good" combination, so it sounds like E'Twaun Moore is the guy that will go to the bench if Holiday starts. Stay tuned.
Nov 29 - 6:25 PM

Jrue Holiday was the only Pelicans player to join Anthony Davis in double-figures on Sunday, scoring 17 points with six assists, four rebounds and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

The Mavericks have allowed opponents to shoot 40.9 percent from downtown, the highest mark in the league by a wide margin. Holiday hit 3-of-4 from deep but his teammates were a combined 2-of-16, contributing to New Orleans' loss to the woeful Mavs. It's unclear when Holiday might shift into the starting lineup, but he's a must-start player even if he's coming off the bench.
Nov 27 - 10:29 PM

Jrue Holiday scored 16 points on 6-of-13 shooting with five assists, four rebounds, one block, two triples and five turnovers vs. the Blazers on Friday.

Holiday played 29 minutes in the loss and the Pelicans will likely start to increase his workload moving forward. He's averaging 16.2 points, 6.6 assists, 2.6 rebounds, 0.8 blocks, 1.0 steals, 1.2 treys and 2.8 turnovers on 47.8 percent shooting since he returned five games ago, and he's only going to get better. He could be an early-round value the rest of the way.
Nov 26 - 1:54 AM

Jrue Holiday finished Wednesday's home victory with seven points, eight assists, one steal and one block in 22 minutes, going 2-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line.

The Pelicans are 4-0 since Holiday's return, boasting a very impressive net rating while he's on the court, and tonight's offensive dip isn't at all concerning. He's likely to overtake Tim Frazier as the starting PG once his conditioning is up to speed, but he's a must-start player even in his current reserve role. It took a while for him to make his season debut, but it was well worth the wait.
Nov 24 - 1:19 AM

Jrue Holiday had 15 points, four rebounds, four assists, two steals and a block on 7-of-15 shooting in 27 minutes of Tuesday's 112-94 win over the Hawks.

He's scored 15, 22 and 21 points in his three games this season and is averaging 2.7 rebounds, 6.7 assists, 3.3 steals and 1.3 3-pointers thus far. Get him in your lineup.
Nov 22 - 10:59 PM

Jrue Holiday hit 9-of-17 shots and three 3-pointers for 22 points, two rebounds, nine assists and a steal in Saturday's overtime win against the Hornets.

He's going to be starting eventually and has looked fantastic in both of his games since returning from caring for his ill wife. If you held onto him all this time, your patience is being rewarded.
Nov 20 - 12:18 AM

Jrue Holiday is not expected to play more than 30 minutes on Saturday against the Hornets.

He looked fantastic in 23 minutes on Friday with 21 points and seven dimes. Holiday's return has transformed the depth and offense of the Pelicans, so expect more fantasy goodness on the way. He has to be starting in all formats tonight and is even worth a look in DFS with a 30-minute cap.
Nov 19 - 5:45 PM

Jrue Holiday made his season debut in a 113-101 win over the Blazers on Friday, scoring 21 points in 23 minutes.

Needless to say, he was worth the wait. Holiday came off the bench and didn't look rusty at all, shooting 8-of-14 from the field with seven assists, two rebounds, one steal, one block, one triple and one turnover. He was doing two-a-day workouts when he was away from the team, so he's going to hit the ground running. He had a 30-minute restriction tonight, but his role will obviously grow as the Pelicans try to turn their season around. Holiday could be an early-round option the rest of the way.
Nov 18 - 11:04 PM

Jrue Holiday will come off the bench on Friday vs. the Blazers.

He will be limited to 30 minutes as a precaution, but he should be in decent shape because he has been doing two-a-day workouts while he was away from the team. In case it needs to be said, Holiday should be owned everywhere and has early-round upside. Tim Frazier's value will take a hit, but his owners should stand pat for now.
Nov 18 - 7:28 PM

Jrue Holiday will be limited to 30 minutes for his season debut against the Blazers on Friday.

He's been doing two-a-day workouts and the Pelicans have sent coaches to work with him, so Holiday should hit the ground running in his season debut. Holiday obviously should be owned in even the shallowest of leagues. Tim Frazier will take a hit, but he'll get some minutes next to Holiday.
Nov 18 - 6:30 PM

Jrue Holiday (personal) practiced in 3-on-3 drills on Thursday.

Holiday is probable to make his season debut on Friday, but head coach Alvin Gentry said Holiday will likely come off the bench and won't play more than 30 minutes in his first game of the season. Holiday's return is great news for his fantasy owners, while Tim Frazier's owners should take a wait-and-see approach before making any moves.
Nov 17 - 1:44 PM

Jrue Holiday (personal) will make his season debut on Friday vs. Portland.

GM Dell Demps told reporters that Holiday will practice fully on Thursday and then speak to the media afterward. Demps also said Holliday is 100 percent healthy. This is great news for Holiday owners, and also great to hear because it most likely means that Holiday's wife is recovering well from brain surgery. Holiday averaged 16.8 points, 6.0 assists, 3.0 rebounds, 1.3 three-pointers and 1.4 steals last season. Coach Alvin Gentry says he hasn't determined how many minutes Holiday will play on Friday.
Nov 15 - 1:05 PM

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said that Jrue Holiday (personal) will return "within a week for sure."

Gentry would'nt set an official date for his return, but hinted that he could return as soon as Wednesday's game vs. the Magic or Friday's game vs. the Blazers. Holiday has early-round upside and should not be sitting on any waiver wires. Tim Frazier's owners should see what type of role he has with Holiday back in the mix before making a roster move.
