Justin Holiday said that he would like to play on the same team as his brother Jrue.
"If we can play together, that would be a dream come true and we’d be successful doing it,’’ Justin said. Both players are free agents this summer and it's a no-brainer that Jrue will have a ton of suitors, but Justin should be in demand as well after a fine season in New York. In 82 appearances, he averaged 7.7 points on 43.3 percent shooting with 2.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.2 triples in 20.0 minutes. However, unless he lands in a dream spot, it's hard to see him helping standard 12-team fantasy owners next season. Apr 17 - 11:43 AM

Justin Holiday scored 20 points in 20 minutes on Wednesday, making 6-of-10 FGs and 6-of-7 FTs with two 3-pointers, five rebounds, one steal and one block.

It's not a bad finish for the impending free agent, who closed the season with 10+ points in five consecutive games. He'd need to find an absolutely perfect situation to be drafted in 12-team leagues next year.
Apr 12 - 10:55 PM

Justin Holiday scored 10 points on 5-of-10 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, five boards, five assists, one steal, one block and zero turnovers through 40 minutes as a starter.

Holiday has been more involved in the rotation as of late with Kristaps Porzingis (back) and Carmelo Anthony (knee) on the sidelines, and over the past four he’s put in averages of 12.5 points, 2.0 triples, 2.8 dimes, 1.0 steal and just 0.5 turnovers per game on 45.7 percent shooting, which has been good enough for top-90 value in standard 9-cat leagues. He could be someone to look at as a deep league streamer on Wednesday.
Apr 9 - 2:38 PM

Justin Holiday started on Friday vs. the Grizzlies and scored 12 points with two rebounds, two assists, three steals and two triples in 27 minutes.

Carmelo Anthony (rest) took the night off, so Holiday will likely head back to the bench on Sunday vs. the Raptors. Holiday had the green light tonight and finished 5-of-13 from the field, and with the Knicks playing for lottery balls, he figures to be a big part of the rotation in the final two games of the season. Mindaugas Kuzminskas added 10 points with one rebound in 23 minutes for the Knicks.
Apr 7 - 10:25 PM

Justin Holiday will start vs. the Grizzlies on Friday.

Holiday is actually in a great spot tonight, as Carmelo Anthony is resting and Kristaps Porzingis (back) may not play again this season. He has scored in double digits in three out of his last four games and could have some sneaky value in the final week of the season with the Knicks in tank mode.
Apr 7 - 7:54 PM

Justin Holiday scored 11 points with four rebounds and three assists in Monday's 114-105 loss against the Clippers.

Holiday racked up 27 minutes, his highest total since Feb. 1. He has played more than 20 minutes in each of the pat three outings, however, as the Knicks continues to give him a look and see if he is someone to rely upon in 2017-18 and beyond. As such, he is worth using in most deeper fantasy leagues since he should log plenty of minutes down the stretch.
Mar 21 - 1:18 AM

Justin Holiday scored 14 points with seven rebounds, two blocks and two 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

Revenge game for trading away his brother? Bad jokes aside, Justin did benefit tonight with Kristaps Porzingis (ankle) out to bump Carmelo Anthony over to the four more often and open up wing minutes. Porzingis isn't expected to be out long, so there's little incentive to add Holiday until further notice.
Feb 25 - 10:46 PM

Justin Holiday scored 15 points on 5-of-15 shooting Sunday, to go with nine boards, five 3-pointers, two assists, one steal and one turnover in 36 minutes off the bench.

Holiday was able to see his minutes in the 30s because the game went into quadruple overtime, but he's just been too inconsistent to get too excited about this stat line. In the four games prior to this outing, Holiday had scored nine, zero, 13 and three points. We'd need to see more consistency before recommending him as a standard league add.
Jan 30 - 1:42 AM

Justin Holiday played 32 minutes and hit 4-of-9 shots and three 3-pointers for 13 points, three rebounds, three steals and two blocks in Monday's 109-103 win over the Pacers.

He's coming off the bench, but is making some noise, averaging 10.2 points, 3.2 rebounds, 0.8 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.4 3-pointers on 53 percent shooting over his last five games. His 32 minutes were easily his most since Dec. 28, so it's possible he's on the verge of getting hot. Just keep an eye on him.
Jan 24 - 12:54 AM

Justin Holiday scored 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting Sunday, to go with three 3-pointers, three boards, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 26 minutes off the bench.

Holiday also went 4-of-5 from the charity stripe, giving him a sterling true shooting percentage of 83.3 on the evening. The blowout nature of the game, partnered with Lance Thomas (orbital fracture) going down early with an injury helped Holiday get some extended minutes, and it'll be interesting to see if he can keep his momentum going into Monday's matchup with the Hawks. This is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues.
Jan 15 - 6:22 PM

Justin Holiday played 10 minutes with seven points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He basically played right behind Courtney Lee tonight and the light playing time comes when the Knicks didn't really go with double-PG lineups. Holiday is likely going to need Carmelo Anthony or Courtney Lee to miss time to get consistent minutes.
Jan 4 - 10:54 PM

Jeff Hornacek lit into his team for their lack of effort on the defensive end following Monday's 115-103 loss to the Magic.

"I have to find someone to play some defense," Hornacek said. "I don't think our guys aren't trying. Maybe we're just not capable of it. I don't know. That's what we're going to have to figure out. Maybe you have to play some of these other guys. We might have to mix the lineup up somehow." Of the Knicks' top-3 lineups, all of them have a negative net rating, so Hornacek may look to shake up his rotations in the near future. The common thread amongst New York's best defensive groups has been the presence of Justin Holiday, so perhaps he's in line for more playing time.

Jan 3 - 4:29 PM

Justin Holiday hit 6-of-12 shots for 15 points, six rebounds, four steals and three 3-points in 30 minutes on Saturday against the Rockets.

With Courtney Lee (wrist) sidelined, Holiday has played at least 28 minutes in each of the last three games and has scored in double figures twice during that stretch. Lee is considered day-to-day and Carmelo Anthony (knee) is dinged up, so Holiday could continue to see significant minutes. He is worth adding in deeper leagues.
Sat, Dec 31, 2016 11:15:00 PM

Justin Holiday scored 14 points in 34 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

With Courtney Lee (wrist) out and Carmelo Anthony ejected in the second quarter, Holiday logged a season-high 34 minutes. He finished 5-of-12 from the field and 2-of-7 from deep with four assists, three rebounds, one block and two steals, so he will be on the DFS radar again on Friday vs. the Pelicans if Lee misses another game or if Anthony is handed a suspension.
Wed, Dec 28, 2016 10:28:00 PM

Justin Holiday hit 5-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, two rebounds, three assists, a career-high six steals and a block in Thursday's ugly loss to the Warriors.

The 15 points weren't a season high, but he had scored in single digits in his previous six games. He benefitted by the blowout score, as well as the absence of Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) tonight, but is still not really on the fantasy radar.
