Justin Holiday had a career-high five steals against the Jazz on Tuesday, adding nine points, two boards and one 3-pointer in 17 minutes.
He has emerged in deeper leagues due to his recent play off the bench but his limited role will keep him off the radar in standards. Unless an injury strikes the Golden State backcourt, you can leave him on the wire in most leagues. Jan 13 - 11:53 PM

Justin Holiday took advantage of garbage time on Monday against the Thunder, scoring 12 points on 4-of-6 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds, three assists and two steals in 28 minutes.

Holiday isn't going to have value in the vast majority of fantasy leagues but it's worth noting that he's impressing with his play and might be ready to answer the call if injuries strike.
Jan 6 - 3:01 AM

Justin Holiday has really enjoyed his time in Golden State and has proven that he can be a reliable asset off the bench whenever his number is called.

"It's a blessing just to sit on the bench and watch this team play," Holiday said. "So being able to actually play and contribute is finishing my dream." He has averaged 10.0 points in just 17.0 minutes per game since joining the rotation on Dec. 18 and hasn't looked back since. However, until his role grows significantly, he is still off the fantasy radar in most leagues.
Jan 4 - 9:58 AM

Justin Holiday scored a career-high 18 points in Monday's easy win, hitting 7-of-12 shots (including three treys) with three rebounds and three assists in 20 minutes.

The Warriors toyed with the Kings all night and then Holiday came in with the rest of the reserves and put them away. He has no real fantasy value but gets a tip of the cap for kicking the Kings while they're down.

Justin Holiday and Ognjen Kuzmic have been recalled by the Warriors from the D-League.

They will likely ride the pine until their next trip to the D-League, so they can both be safely ignored in almost all leagues.

Justin Holiday and Ognjen Kuzmic will head to the D-League.

They're not getting minutes, so it makes sense. Holiday was a great story to even make the team and he'll be back with the big club soon.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr said that Justin Holiday will likely be in the rotation as a backup wing player in Wednesday's season opener.

He was a longshot to make the regular-season roster, but has been impressive enough to earn a rotation spot. Shaun Livingston (toe) isn't far away from returning, which could usurp Holiday's minutes, and he's not worth considering as a fantasy option.

Justin Holiday made the Warriors 15-man roster.

He had a magnificent summer league with a 29-point game and plenty of highlights, and he finished strong in October to earn the last roster spot. Holiday probably won't be in the rotation, but kudos to a guy who wasn't on a team a month ago.

The Warriors signed Summer League standout Justin Holiday on Monday.

This is just a training camp invite, and with the Dubs deep on the wings, Holiday will need to impress to make the Warriors' official roster. Holiday, brother of Jrue Holiday, averaged 14.8 points, and 5.0 rebounds while starting for the Warriors Summer League squad, and also spent last season playing overseas in Hungary. Holiday should not be targeted in any leagues.

Justin Holiday had a game-winning putback on Saturday to finish his line of 29 points, 13 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He scored just two points in the opener, so this was unexpected. Holiday will need three more games like this one to make the Warriors.

Free agent Justin Holiday is expected to sign with the Jazz for training camp.

The Jazz waived Jerel McNeal on Wednesday in a mildly surprising move, so this may explain that. Holiday worked out with the Jazz earlier this month and it looks like he earned a camp invite. He'll have to make a major splash to make the team.

Free agent G/F Justin Holiday has workouts scheduled with the Jazz and Heat.

Holiday described himself as a "versatile defender ... [and] knock-down spot-up shooter." He's unlikely to earn a guaranteed NBA contract, however, and said that playing in the D-League is his "last option," so it's not a stretch to think he'll wind up overseas.

Sixers waive SG Justin Holiday.

With Jason Richardson possibly out for the year, the only shooting guards left in Philly are James Anderson and Evan Turner, who was originally slated to play more small forward. With their lack of viable shooting guard options, Anderson is officially a deep sleeper that could see some decent minutes this season. Holiday was set to get some guaranteed money if not waived prior to August 15, which helps explains why they let him go.

Justin Holiday scored a career-high 11 points against the Pistons on Monday, adding two boards, two assists and two blocks in 28 minutes.

Jrue's older brother has been getting more minutes and he hasn't really done much with them, making just 32 percent from the field. Holiday has no fantasy value on a 15-game night on Wednesday.

Sixers sign F Justin Holiday for the remainder of the season.

Justin, the older brother of Jrue, will join the Sixers for the remainder of the year. He averaged 17.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 2.4 steals with the Idaho Stampede of the D-League this year. To make room for Holiday, the team is expected to release either Jeremy Pargo or Charles Jenkins.
