Justin Holiday played 18 minutes in a start against the Kings on Wednesday with six points, three rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.
He didn't play in the final 17 minutes of this game even though it was close. Holiday was outplayed by the other wings on the roster today and he probably won't play as much going forward even if Kent Bazemore (ankle) is out. All that said, this was a pretty good game from him on the stat sheet. Nov 18 - 10:55 PM

Justin Holiday will start instead of Tiago Splitter on Wednesday.

It's an interesting move against the Kings, but Tiago Splitter coming off the bench probably makes more sense. Holiday is still likely going to play less than Thabo Sefolosha, so he's a very risky DFS play.

Justin Holiday has gotten a chance to be part of the Hawks wing rotation over the past two games.

Holiday has gotten some extra run with Kyle Korver out (rest), but and Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer has been happy with his defense. "He’s gotten a couple of opportunities and taken advantage of those opportunities," Budenholzer said of Holiday. "We went with him tonight without Kyle [Korver] suiting up. He got more minutes and more opportunities." While Holiday has seen an increase in playing time, he hasn't done enough with it to warrant a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues and will see his minutes decrease on Friday when Korver returns.
Nov 5 - 11:24 AM

Justin Holiday took control of the Hawks' second unit on Wednesday and posted six points, one rebound, two assists, one steal and four blocks in 29 minutes.

He barely played prior to Wednesday but got an opportunity with Dennis Schroder starting in place of Kyle Korver (rest). Before you think about digging for him in a pile of free agents, remember that Holiday's role will evaporate once Korver returns on Friday.
Nov 4 - 10:42 PM

Justin Holiday is going to sign with the Hawks.

He had a couple bright spots last season, including a 23-point game on Mar. 13 when the Warriors rested Klay Thompson. Holiday is a decent scorer and he may help the Hawks on the wing with the loss of DeMarre Carroll. He's still not on the radar in most leagues.
Jul 8 - 6:37 PM

Justin Holiday is expected to leave the Warriors in free agency this summer.

Holiday averaged 4.3 points in 59 appearances last season, and he only saw 11.1 minutes per game. The Warriors are loaded on the wings, so Holiday would have a lot of trouble finding playing time if he re-signed with the Warriors. Unless Holiday lands in an ideal situation, he is well off the fantasy radar.
Jul 5 - 9:44 AM

Justin Holiday was quiet with Klay Thompson (ankle) still out on Friday, scoring six points on 3-of-8 shooting with three rebounds, one assist and two steals in 21 minutes.

This was a strange box score since eight players logged between 20-27 minutes in a blowout win over the Pelicans. Holiday figures to be a better player once the Warriors are in full-on rest mode, which isn't happening in the next two games according to Steve Kerr.
Mar 21 - 3:47 AM

Justin Holiday started for Klay Thompson (ankle) on Wednesday, but hit just 1-of-6 shots for five points, three boards, five assists, a steal and a block in 25 minutes.

He could continue to start for the next 10 days or so, but it was Leandro Barbosa who came through at shooting guard tonight, scoring 13 points with three 3-pointers.
Mar 19 - 2:25 AM

Justin Holiday will start at shooting guard against the Hawks on Wednesday.

He's not going to get all of Klay Thompson's minutes and he's certainly not going to get all of Klay's shots. Shaun Livingston has played well off the bench this month and could have increased value here. Holiday is more of an add in deep leagues.
Mar 18 - 8:50 PM

Justin Holiday (personal) missed shootaround and is expected to be ready to play on Wednesday against the Hawks.

He had an excused absence and should be ready to go for a big game as the expected to start. Although, Holiday certainly won't be in the same role he was the last time he started in a 23-point outing because he'll play next to Stephen Curry. In his 111 minutes with Curry this season, Holiday only has a 14.3 usage rate. Shaun Livingston will likely benefit more on the stat sheet.
Mar 18 - 2:09 PM

With news that Klay Thompson (ankle) will be sidelined for the next 7-10 days, Warriors' head coach Steve Kerr said that he's leaning towards starting Justin Holiday at the two-spot.

Holiday has shown flashes in the past, and his per-36-minute numbers are impressive at 14.3 points, 2.3 assists, 2.3 steals, and 2.2 three-pointers per game. He's obviously not going to be that good, but he has enough upside to warrant consideration in deep leagues. However, standard league owners can use a wait-and-see approach here.
Mar 17 - 3:51 PM

Justin Holiday played 22 minutes against the Knicks on Saturday with 13 points, four boards, two steals, one block and three 3-pointers.

Holiday is another wonderful story this season from guys who carried over their momentum from summer league. He's in the rotation now and coach Steve Kerr has really been impressed. The Warriors are likely going to rest their stars a couple more times, so we should get a couple nice games out of Holiday. Just keep him in mind when the Warriors have a back-to-back game on the road.
Mar 15 - 1:08 AM

Justin Holiday will start against the Nuggets on Friday in place of Klay Thompson.

He wasn't supposed to make the team back in September, but a great summer league and preseason helped him earn a spot. Holiday has been quiet since January, but that was a decent month with averages of 5.5 points, 1.6 boards, 1.1 dimes, 1.1 steals and 0.7 treys. Holiday only has a 5.7 rebounding rate, an assist percentage of just 11.5 and a usage rate of 19.2 on the season, so his upside is certainly not a must-use in even deep leagues.
Mar 13 - 2:34 PM

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.
