Justin Holiday said he's OK with how the team addresses his minutes after the break.
"I have to see when that time comes what they decide," Holiday said. "They’re employers. They make the calls. I just do my job when I’m called upon." The Bulls have suggested they are going to play their younger guys more after the break, which means Holiday could creep into the 20s for minutes. He's still worth owning in most leagues, but it's very likely his best days are behind him this season. Feb 15 - 4:54 PM

Date:

Justin Holiday hit 6-of-10 shots and four 3-pointers for 20 points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in 36 minutes of Monday's loss to the Kings.

Holiday's minutes have been solid, even with the return of Zach LaVine, but this was his best scoring night since he had 25 on Jan. 15. He's averaging 12.2 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.8 3-pointers over his last five, but is shooting just 36 percent over that stretch.
Feb 6 - 12:36 AM

Justin Holiday scored 13 points with four rebounds, two assists, one block, one steal and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes against the Clippers on Saturday.

Unlike the other wings, Holiday has not been squeezed out from the Zach LaVine minutes increase. However, Holiday is cold over his last five, averaging 9.2 points, 2.8 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.2 treys on just 28.1 percent from the field. He's still a hold in standard leagues.
Feb 3 - 6:05 PM

Justin Holiday nailed a career-high seven 3-pointers for 25 points in Monday's 119-111 win over the Heat.

This was his fifth game of the season with five or more triples and eighth of his career. Holiday will lose a few minutes with Zach LaVine back (especially once his restrictions are lifted), but he's played 40, 45, 32 and 35 minutes in his last four outings. He hit 8-of-15 shots with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block and fantasy owners can continue to deploy him until further notice.
Jan 15 - 6:46 PM

Justin Holiday scored 16 points with nine rebounds, two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 45 minutes against the Knicks during a double-overtime win on Wednesday.

While the Holiday season is over, there should still be a decent opportunity for Justin even when Zach LaVine (knee) makes his season debut on Saturday. Holiday's minutes have held steady at 34 per game, so that number is probably going to move close to 30. He should still get a chance in the starting lineup, and coach Fred Hoiberg still went to him to close even though both Denzel Valentine and David Nwaba played well -- he was the main wing in OT, too. Holiday should still be held in standard leagues with owners expecting double-digit scoring, two-plus treys and plenty of other counting stats.
Jan 10 - 10:25 PM

Justin Holiday scored 23 points with three rebounds and five triples in Friday's win over the Mavericks.

He's been playing a ton of minutes lately and this was his fourth game of the season with five or more triples. Holiday was 5-of-7 from the field and nailed all eight of his free throws in 37 minutes, and he remains unchallenged on the wing with David Nwaba and Denzel Valentine splitting minutes. It's going to be interesting to see what Holiday's role will look like when Zach LaVine (knee) gets back, but LaVine's minutes will probably be low for a while.
Jan 6 - 12:15 AM

Justin Holiday scored 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting Sunday, to go with four rebounds, one 3-pointer, one steal and zero turnovers in 34 minutes.

Holiday has been a pleasant surprise this season, posting top-75 value in 9-cat leagues behind averages of 13.3 points, 2.4 triples, 4.5 boards, 2.4 dimes, 1.2 steals, 0.7 swats and just 1.3 turnovers per contest on 37.1% shooting. However, Zach LaVine (knee) is on the cusp of a return, and he could mess with Holiday’s minutes once he’s fully up to speed, so Holiday owners may want to look to sell high before that happens.

Justin Holiday posted 11 points with four assists, two rebounds, an assist and three blocked shots across 36 minutes in Friday's 119-107 win against the Pacers.

It wasn't a great fantasy line, but the three blocks were a nice surprise. Zach LaVine (knee) is set to begin his six straight days of practice on Saturday, so the time is ticking down on how long Holiday and Denzel Valentine continue to see a big role and healthy amount of minutes. He has some short-term fantasy appeal still, but his days of 30-plus minutes will be coming to an end soon.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 11:18:00 PM

Justin Holiday hit 7-of-14 shots and five 3-pointers for 20 points, two rebounds, three assists, a steal and two blocks in 38 minutes on Monday.

This was his best game of December and he bounced back nicely from Friday's eight-point effort, when he hit just 2-of-10 shots. Holiday is going to take a hit if we ever seen Zach LaVine again, but we wouldn't worry about that for now. Just keep rolling Holiday out there, as he's getting 32 minutes a night in December.
Mon, Dec 18, 2017 11:12:00 PM

Justin Holiday finished with eight points, eight rebounds and seven assists over his 38 minutes in Friday's win at Milwaukee.

Holiday has had a rough time shooting in the month of December, hitting just 34.1 percent (27-of-79) from the field in eight games. Despite the shooting woes he had hit at least one 3-pointer in each of his previous seven games, but he was 0-of-4 from behind the arc in this one. Despite the struggles on offense, he continues to chip in on rebounds assists and steals to help his fantasy owners.
Fri, Dec 15, 2017 11:26:00 PM

Justin Holiday scored 17 points with eight rebounds, two assists, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 39 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

That's the sixth time in the last seven games with 34-plus minutes as he continues to stuff the stat sheet, averaging 15.0 points, 4.1 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.6 blocks and 2.7 treys on 41.9 percent from the field in that stretch. His minutes could take a slight hit when Zach LaVine (knee) comes back, but he's doing too much right now for his owners to be too worried about it.
Sat, Dec 9, 2017 01:24:00 AM

Justin Holiday scored 25 points with five assists, three rebounds, two steals, three blocks and six 3-pointers against the Suns on Tuesday.

Holiday and Kris Dunn were carrying the Bulls with a combined 49 points, but it wasn't enough as Chicago dropped their sixth straight game. Zach LaVine (knee) might not make his Bulls debut until late-December, so Holiday has about another month of taking as many shots as he pleases.
Tue, Nov 28, 2017 11:07:00 PM

Justin Holiday hit 4-of-11 shots to score 12 points on Wednesday, adding two 3-pointers, two rebounds and one assist in 30 minutes.

Holiday is averaging 2.7 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.0 blocks over the past three games, while shooting a combined 11-of-43 from the field (25.6 percent). That about sums up his lack of fantasy appeal in the bulk of formats, and there should be 3-point specialists available who won't drag you down in other categories.
Thu, Nov 23, 2017 12:38:00 AM

Justin Holiday scored 13 points with three 3-pointers, three assists, two rebounds and two steals in 37 minutes on Sunday, but he shot just 5-of-20 from the field without any FT attempts.

David Nwaba (ankle) will "most likely" be out again vs. the Lakers on Tuesday, according to coach Fred Hoiberg, so Holiday's playing time should be safe in the short-term. That said, his heavily-weighted 35.9% shooting is dragging down his value in most fantasy formats, and the eventual return of Nwaba and Zach LaVine (knee) makes him an obvious sell-high player.
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 11:08:00 PM

Justin Holiday scored a season-high 27 points in Friday's 123-120 win over the Hornets, hitting 10-of-15 shots and 3-of-3 free throws.

He was returning from a one-game absence for personal reasons and finished two points shy of his career-high. Holiday nailed four triples in the win, adding three rebounds, three steals and one block in 36 minutes, Zach LaVine (knee) isn't expected back until mid-December, so there are more good times ahead for Holiday's owners.
