Justin Holiday played 28 minutes and hit 7-of-16 shots and four 3-pointers for 19 points, three assists and three steals in Tuesday's win over the Hornets.
He came down awkwardly and grimaced due to an apparent leg injury, but was able to play through it. He looked good tonight, so owners will just want to make sure the leg issue doesn't linger prior to Friday's game at Boston. Apr 3 - 11:39 PM

Justin Holiday scored 13 points with one rebound, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Heat on Thursday.

He's consistently been in the low 20s lately, which just isn't enough playing time to have fantasy value for how he plays. In his last five, he averaged 7.4 points, 2.6 boards, 1.0 assists, 0.4 steals and 1.4 treys. Even with all the injuries on the Bulls, leave Holiday on the wire.

Justin Holiday scored three points with two rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 23 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

That's minutes in three straight games, but he hasn't done much since Zach LaVine went down. In that time, he combined for just eight points, five boards, five assists, six steals and one 3-pointer. Fantasy owners should shoot for most upside and a guy who could hit 24 minutes more often. He hasn't this month.
Mar 21 - 10:40 PM

Justin Holiday ended up with just five points across 17 minutes in Saturday's home loss against the Cavaliers.

Holiday hit just 2-of-6 from the field, including 0-of-3 from behind the 3-point line, while chipping in with three assists, two rebounds and two steals with just two turnovers. After three straight DNP-CDs he was in the starting lineup due to numerous injuries. He was rusty, and rightly so. Even when he is in the starting five he doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration.
Mar 18 - 12:14 AM

Justin Holiday will return to the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Cavs.

Holiday is being forced back into the rotation due to numerous injuries on Chicago's side, but he still might not play that much tonight. There are better streamer options out there on a busy Saturday night.
Mar 17 - 6:25 PM

Justin Holiday was a DNP-CD on Tuesday against the Clippers.

We'll see what happens with the NBA on this, but either way you're not using Holiday in fantasy.
Mar 13 - 10:37 PM

Justin Holiday was a healthy DNP-CD on Sunday.

Holiday recently returned to the rotation after Chicago received a warning from the league about resting healthy players. The threat of potential fines only carries so much weight, apparently, as the Bulls benched Holiday tonight while playing Robin Lopez just one quarter.
Mar 11 - 6:33 PM

Justin Holiday played 12 minutes with six points, two rebounds and two 3-pointers against the Pistons on Friday.

He played the whole first, and he didn't play at all after that with David Nwaba starting the third. Holiday is likely not going to play at all in the second and fourth quarters after just playing the first and third Wednesday, but now it may not be past the first. It'll be interesting to see how the NBA feels about this, but this plan to not play Holiday beyond the first should be more than enough to satisfy the league. Holiday can't be trusted in fantasy.
Mar 9 - 9:24 PM

Justin Holiday will remain in the starting lineup Friday vs. the Pistons.

Holiday was re-inserted into the Bulls starting lineup on Wednesday and finished with 14 points, four rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 17 minutes. He'll likely log less than 20 minutes per game going forward, which caps his fantasy value.
Mar 9 - 12:19 PM

Justin Holiday returned to the starting lineup against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, making all five shots from the field for 14 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 17 minutes.

He played a nine-minute stint in the first quarter and an eight-minute stint in the third for all of his playing time. Holiday got hot early with nine points in his first eight minutes, and had his jumper working in limited playing time. He's expected to start again on Friday night, but he's likely looking at around 17 minutes again. Considering that is half of his average from before the break, Holiday doesn't look like much of an add.
Mar 7 - 11:17 PM

Justin Holiday will return to the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Grizzlies.

The NBA recently issued the Bulls a warning regarding resting healthy players, so they'll get Holiday back into the rotation to avoid disciplinary action by the league. However, Holiday acknowledged that while he'll be starting, he doesn't anticipate playing a lot of minutes with Chicago still evaluating their younger guys, so he's still not a great option in most leagues.
Mar 7 - 12:47 PM

Justin Holiday will be a part of the rotation to close out the season.

The NBA reportedly issued a warning to the Bulls this week regarding resting healthy players, so Robin Lopez and Holiday will be more involved in the rotation moving forward. It's unlikely that Holiday will be earning enough minutes to matter, though, so he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues.
Mar 6 - 7:02 PM

Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg said he will make a lineup change after Friday's game vs. Dallas.

No names were mentioned, but maybe Justin Holiday or Robin Lopez could find themselves back in the rotation. The Bulls are going to be a complete mess going forward as they tank their way to a top pick.
Mar 1 - 1:46 PM

Justin Holiday is expected to be inactive for Tuesday's game vs. the Hornets.

With Zach LaVine (rest) not playing, Holiday started for the Bulls in Monday night's loss in Brooklyn. However, Holiday was just 1-of-11 from the floor and finished with four points, three boards, three assists, a steal and a block. It appears Holiday may only see the court on days that LaVine is rested.
Feb 27 - 1:40 PM

Justin Holiday started for the Bulls with Zach LaVine resting, but hit just 1-of-11 shots for four points, three boards, three assists, a steal and a block in Monday's loss.

Holiday is likely heading back to no man's land with LaVine's rest likely over, and he may not be worth owning again this season, outside of some random streaming possibilities.
