Justin Holiday scored 17 points on 5-of-8 shooting Sunday, to go with three 3-pointers, three boards, one assist, one steal and one turnover in 26 minutes off the bench.
Holiday also went 4-of-5 from the charity stripe, giving him a sterling true shooting percentage of 83.3 on the evening. The blowout nature of the game, partnered with Lance Thomas (orbital fracture) going down early with an injury helped Holiday get some extended minutes, and it'll be interesting to see if he can keep his momentum going into Monday's matchup with the Hawks. This is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues. Jan 15 - 6:22 PM

Justin Holiday played 10 minutes with seven points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He basically played right behind Courtney Lee tonight and the light playing time comes when the Knicks didn't really go with double-PG lineups. Holiday is likely going to need Carmelo Anthony or Courtney Lee to miss time to get consistent minutes.

Jeff Hornacek lit into his team for their lack of effort on the defensive end following Monday's 115-103 loss to the Magic.

"I have to find someone to play some defense," Hornacek said. "I don't think our guys aren't trying. Maybe we're just not capable of it. I don't know. That's what we're going to have to figure out. Maybe you have to play some of these other guys. We might have to mix the lineup up somehow." Of the Knicks' top-3 lineups, all of them have a negative net rating, so Hornacek may look to shake up his rotations in the near future. The common thread amongst New York's best defensive groups has been the presence of Justin Holiday, so perhaps he's in line for more playing time.

Justin Holiday hit 6-of-12 shots for 15 points, six rebounds, four steals and three 3-points in 30 minutes on Saturday against the Rockets.

With Courtney Lee (wrist) sidelined, Holiday has played at least 28 minutes in each of the last three games and has scored in double figures twice during that stretch. Lee is considered day-to-day and Carmelo Anthony (knee) is dinged up, so Holiday could continue to see significant minutes. He is worth adding in deeper leagues.

Justin Holiday scored 14 points in 34 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

With Courtney Lee (wrist) out and Carmelo Anthony ejected in the second quarter, Holiday logged a season-high 34 minutes. He finished 5-of-12 from the field and 2-of-7 from deep with four assists, three rebounds, one block and two steals, so he will be on the DFS radar again on Friday vs. the Pelicans if Lee misses another game or if Anthony is handed a suspension.

Justin Holiday hit 5-of-8 shots and two 3-pointers for 13 points, two rebounds, three assists, a career-high six steals and a block in Thursday's ugly loss to the Warriors.

The 15 points weren't a season high, but he had scored in single digits in his previous six games. He benefitted by the blowout score, as well as the absence of Carmelo Anthony (shoulder) tonight, but is still not really on the fantasy radar.

Justin Holiday started in place of Courtney Lee (ankle) on Sunday, finishing a home victory with five points, eight rebounds, three steals and two assists.

Holiday was coming off a game with 13 points, seven boards and three steals, but he's a shaky fantasy pickup because Lee is day-to-day. Throw in the fact that Holiday is shooting under 40 percent this season and there should be guys with higher upside.

Justin Holiday and Joakim Noah will start Sunday vs. the Kings.

Courtney Lee (ankle) is out, so Holiday should be seeing around 30 minutes tonight, and he's on the DFS radar with a favorable matchup against Sacramento. With Noah back in the starting five, Kyle O'Quinn will return to the bench, and he might not even get 20 minutes.

Justin Holiday vastly improved against the Wolves on Friday with 13 points, seven rebounds, three steals and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He got the start for the injured Courtney Lee (ankle) and really stepped it up after struggling for over a week. If Lee is going to miss additional time, Holiday could flirt with minutes close to 30. Although, he's not expected to miss time and figures to be questionable for Sunday against the Kings. Holiday is only a lukewarm pickup in deep leagues.

Justin Holiday will start against the Wolves on Friday night.

Holiday started the third quarter on Wednesday, so this move is expected. Holiday only played 10.3 minutes in the second half, so he may not getting a big bump. Expect to see more of Mindaugas Kuzminskas and Brandon Jennings tonight.

Justin Holiday started the third quarter for Courtney Lee (ankle) against the Wolves on Wednesday, finishing with two points, four rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes.

He wasn't too impressive during this game while Brandon Jennings stepped up the most after an injury to Courtney Lee (ankle). There's no break on Lee's ankle, so it appears to be more of a day-to-day issue. Holiday only gets a short-term boost until further notice.

Justin Holiday started the third quarter for Courtney Lee (ankle) against the Wolves on Wednesday.

Lee was ruled out for the game due to his ankle sprain. Holiday has played well for the Knicks and even gets some run with the first unit when the Knicks go with Kristaps Porzingis at the five. If Lee does need to miss time, Holiday would get a nice bump in minutes. He's worth a speculative look in deeper leagues.

Justin Holiday said he has a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder suffered in Friday’s game versus Charlotte.

"Every time you make contact, it’s going to hurt, but it still moves,’’ Holiday said. He played 18 minutes on Saturday and then 15 minutes on Monday night, so it doesn't appear to be hampering him significantly. Holiday is averaging 6.2 points and 2.7 rebounds. He can be left on the waiver wire.

Justin Holiday hurt his shoulder on Friday and did return, finishing with nine points, one rebound, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 16 minutes.

He is fully expected to play on Saturday. The Knicks are starting to play smaller more often, but it hasn't helped Holiday get a significant bump in minutes. He's only on the radar in deeper formats.
Sat, Nov 26, 2016 12:27:00 AM

Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek said he's happy with how Justin Holiday has been playing as of late.

Holiday scored nine points off the bench on Wednesday, and Hornacek has been happy with what he's seen so far. "He’s doing everything right,’’ Hornacek said. "Of all our guys more than anybody, he’s consistently in the right spot. He’s got a nice shot. He’s been huge for us.’’ While Holiday isn't an option in standard leagues, he's worth a flier in deep leagues.
