According to the New York Post, Justin Holiday has a "leg up" on Sasha Vujacic for the backup SG role.
Courtney Lee will be the starter and is probably going to see over 30 minutes per game, but the Knicks view Holiday as a defensive stopper off the bench. "I’m going to make sure I contribute that to this team,’’ Holiday said of his defense. "I’m here to help — not make myself be the star. That’s not my role or why I’m here. We have enough of those players." Holiday shot 43.3 percent from deep in Chicago last season, but he won't get many touches in NY and it's clear that his focus will be on the defensive end. He's not worth drafting in standard leagues. Sep 3 - 9:21 AM

Justin Holiday is expected to compete for a spot in Jeff Hornacek's rotation.

The Knicks have upgraded their starting five in a big way, but their bench remains a major question mark as we move forward in free agency. Holiday, an active, rangy defender capable of guarding multiple positions, should get a very real opportunity to see minutes right away. Perhaps the Campbell Hall product will flash his NBA championship ring to motivate his newest teammates.

The Knicks traded for Justin Holiday on Wednesday.

The Bulls stole Holiday in the Kirk Hinrich trade last season, but now he's a throw-in player to the Knicks. Holiday was spectacular in the season finale, scoring 29 points against the 76ers. He likely won't be in the rotation next year.
Jun 22 - 3:25 PM

Justin Holiday poured in 29 points on 9-of-15 shooting on Wednesday, hitting five 3-pointers with five assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in 37 minutes.

Chicago finishes the season 6-2 in their final eight games, but it's all for naught as they miss the playoffs and head into what should be an eventful offseason. Holiday has played strong down the stretch and he might earn a permanent spot in the rotation next season, when he'll earn $1.0 million in the final year of his contract.
Apr 14 - 12:08 AM

Justin Holiday moved into the starting lineup on Monday and played well, scoring 14 points with four boards, three assists and two 3-pointers in 26 minutes.

He shot 6-of-8 from the field and looked great, but he would've played a lot more if he didn't pick up five fouls. Holiday should get some solid playing time on Wednesday vs. the 76ers with the Bulls missing several key guys, so he's worth a look in DFS.
Apr 11 - 11:08 PM

Justin Holiday will start against the Pelicans on Monday.

Jimmy Butler is at the point guard spot tonight, so Holiday should have plenty of minutes available on the wing. He'll be an interesting play in DFS and should get 22-27 minutes tonight.
Apr 11 - 6:34 PM

Justin Holiday made 6-of-10 shots in 30 minutes of action on Wednesday, finishing a road loss in D.C. with 13 points, six rebounds, one assist and one block.

Jimmy Butler was on a minute-limit and Mike Dunleavy (illness) was struggling, so all of Holiday's contributions were gladly accepted by the Bulls tonight. It wasn't enough for a victory but it should ensure that he plays a substantial role vs. Brooklyn on Thursday, and he's worth considering for temporary value in deep leagues.
Mar 16 - 11:09 PM

Justin Holiday will return to the bench for Wednesday's game against the Wizards.

Derrick Rose, Jimmy Butler and Mike Dunleavy are all healthy, so Holiday could fall out of the rotation entirely tonight. There's a reason why Holiday is owned in zero percent of Yahoo! Leagues.
Mar 16 - 6:26 PM

Justin Holiday scored five points during a start against the Raptors on Monday, adding three rebounds, one assist, one block and one 3-pointer in 14 minutes.

He probably would've played more in this game, but Doug McDermott was on fire. Holiday won't have much value once Derrick Rose (groin) comes back, so he's only an add in very deep leagues.
Mar 14 - 11:38 PM

Justin Holiday will start at shooting guard with Jimmy Butler moving over small forward against the Raptors on Monday.

He is coming off a 14-point game on Friday and has looked good. Holiday is only worth a look in deep leagues and should share minutes on the wing with Doug McDermott.
Mar 14 - 6:58 PM

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said that Justin Holiday has been "a pleasant surprise."

"I’m starting to figure it out," Holiday said. "I just want to be aggressive at both ends. Coach has given me confidence since I’ve been here just playing me the times he has. The one thing I love that he allows me to do is guard really good players, the best players on the other team. Things like that shows he has confidence in me." Holiday started on Friday and had a season-high 14 points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes, but he can left on the wire in most leagues with Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler hopeful to return on Monday.
Mar 12 - 11:44 AM

Justin Holiday got the start on Friday with a season-high 14 points to go with four rebounds, one assist, two steals, two blocks and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He was pretty decent in his first real chance for playing time. Holiday has likely earned a rotation role even when the Bulls are healthy. However, he's not really worth grabbing with Jimmy Butler (knee) hopeful to play on Monday.
Mar 11 - 11:51 PM

Justin Holiday will start vs. the Heat on Friday.

Jimmy Butler (knee) and Derrick Rose (adductor strain) are both out tonight, so the short-handed Bulls are turning to Holiday for some wing production. Holiday is worth a glance as a punt DFS play but he doesn't have much long-term appeal with Butler possibly returning vs. the Raptors on Monday.

Mar 11 - 6:22 PM

Justin Holiday scored 12 points in 21 minutes against the Spurs on Thursday with two rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

He's not as good as his brother, Jrue, but Justin has played really well since arriving in Chicago. Holiday is still not even close to being a pickup in almost any league.
