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

Date:

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.
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.
Fri, Nov 14, 2014 02:45:00 PM

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.
