Jrue Holiday’s wife gave birth to a healthy girl this week and she is expected to undergo surgery to remove a benign brain tumor in about six weeks.
First off, congratulations to the Holiday family and our thoughts and prayers go out to them as they prepare for the next six weeks. Holiday will return when he and his family feels it is appropriate as he takes care of Lauren and he has the full support of the Pelicans in doing so. The end of the sixth week will be in early November and it appears he will miss 2-3 weeks of the season if we had to guess. Tim Frazier is the favorite to start in his place while he is gone and though this might ding his season-long value by about 5-10 ranks, the situation will probably cause him to fall further than he should in drafts.
