The Pacers didn't catch the same attention that the other top teams in the East did, but had the looks of a team that could make some noise before an unfortunate injury to their star.…

Aaron Holiday will not play in the Pacers' Summer League finale on Friday due to a sore left hip.
Aside from Holiday, Goga Bitadze (not with team), Brian Bowen (sore back) and Shizz Alston (sore right ankle) will also be missing the game. Holiday has been a beast in Summer League and looks like he's going to be a solid backup to Malcolm Brogdon.

Aaron Holiday (sore left hip) led the Pacers with 35 minutes on Thursday and added 23 points and three triples to the Pacers' cause.
The 6-of-26 shooting was alarmingly bad and the efficiency has been a well-documented issue throughout the Summer League campaign. The backcourt could get crowded when Victor Oladipo is healthy, so we'll have to see quite a bit from Holiday to be confident going into next season.

Edmond Sumner (sore left foot) and Goga Bitadze (visa) will not play in Thursday's Summer League game.
Both players have yet to suit up in Vegas, and it seems unlikely that either will return for the elimination round. Aaron Holiday (sore left hip) and Brian Bowen (sore back) are available after sitting out on Tuesday.

The Pacers are ruling out Aaron Holiday (sore left hip) Goga Bitadze (visa), Edmond Sumner (sore left foot) and Brian Bowen II ( sore back) as out for Tuesday's Summer League game against the Hawks.
Holiday has had a productive Summer League as he looks to take on a bigger role next season until Victor Oladipo returns. Bitadze is another player looking to crack the rotation, but he hasn't gotten a chance to play yet because of visa issues. The Pacers' deep-reserves on the Summer League team will get the chance to shine against the Hawks.

Aaron Holiday once again played big minutes (34) in Summer League vs. the Pistons on Monday and scored 20 points (7-of-21 FGs) with two rebounds, four assists, two blocks and seven turnovers.
Holiday is getting a lot of run and while he's putting up numbers, he's not been very efficient. Hopefully he can improve his shooting and turnover rate this week. There's plenty of buzz about Holiday, but he may just not be quite ready to take on many minutes even if he were to play next to Malcolm Brogdon while Victor Oladipo is out.

Aaron Holiday played a game-high 35 minutes in the Pacers’ 101-75 win against the Grizzlies on Saturday, scoring 24 points to go with five assists, two rebounds and a steal.
The second-year guard made a case for himself tonight as the Pacers rode Holiday all night. Currently slated behind newly acquired Malcolm Brogdon and T.J. McConnell on the depth chart, Holiday hopes to carve out more time at PG after averaging just 10 minutes last season.

Aaron Holiday is in demand when the Pacers are discussing trades with other teams prior to Thursday's draft.
Holiday is one of the five players under contract for the Pacers that averaged over 10 minutes per game last season, so he is definitely one of the primary assets on their roster. We could see Holiday on another team come Thursday night or sometime during this offseason as the Pacers could look to make a home run move.

Nate McMillan expects Aaron Holiday to be part of the Pacers rotation next season.
Holiday was thought to be one of the more NBA-ready prospects in the draft but was unfortunately stuck behind Darren Collison, Cory Joseph and Tyreke Evans on the depth chart. All three are unrestricted free agents so odds are that Holiday will be Indiana's primary backup point guard next season. That makes him a name to know in most formats, though it's tough to project him as more than a deep-league value so far out.

Aaron Holiday played 22 minutes in the Pacers' 135-134 win in Atlanta, scoring 13 points to go with two assists, two steals an a 3-pointer.
The first-year guard out of UCLA didn’t make much of a fantasy impact in his limited playing time, finishing outside the top-300, despite occasionally displaying flashes of promise. He could end up being an interesting player to monitor for next year, as Darren Collison and Cory Joseph could leave in free agency. If that were to happen, Holiday could be the next man in line to be the starting PG.

Aaron Holiday logged 23 minutes on Sunday night, producing six points, seven assists and a pair of 3-pointers in the process.
Holiday played as much as Darren Collison (2-of-12 shooting) and four more minutes than Cory Joseph (12 points, four assists, two 3-pointers) as the Pacers tried to find a spark. It didn't work but having someone like Holiday as your third point guard could prove to be a valuable insurance policy in the postseason.

Aaron Holiday played 25 minutes with Darren Collision out on Monday vs. the Pistons, and he put up nine points, five assists, one rebound, two threes and a block on 3-of-4 from the floor.
Holiday didn't see any minutes in the three previous games, but it's nice to see him make the most of his opportunity. Wesley Matthews was also missing from this game, so keep an eye on his status as well as Collison's if you're in need of point guard stats on Wednesday when the Pacers play next.

Aaron Holiday fell out of the rotation on Wednesday against the Thunder.
Holiday watched the action from a great seat as Darren Collison returned. He can be let go in all single-season leagues once more.

Aaron Holiday saw 19 minutes of action on Sunday since the game was out of reach in favor of the Pacers and had 11 points with five dimes.
He has played fairly well in the minutes he has seen this season, but it is a pretty small sample size so it is nice to see games like this where he nears 20 minutes. Tyreke Evans also supplied some reliable bench scoring with 11 points, five rebounds and three assists on 5-of-9 shooting. Neither guy should be on fantasy radars and they can be left on the waiver wire.

Aaron Holiday had seven points, three rebounds, one assist and a steal in 15 minutes of action against the Grizzlies.
He struggled in today's game with 3-of-11 shooting but that's to be expected especially since he rarely gets playing time with the team. Those 11 shots he took were the second-highest in the team after Bogdan Bogdanovic's 14 attempts from the field. With Indiana's backcourt opening up, he'll now be able to log a good 10-15 minutes to prove his worth and be a considerable option in deep league formats moving forward.
