  • Aaron Holiday - G - Indiana Pacers

    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 - G - Indiana Pacers

    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 - G - Indiana Pacers

    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.

    Aaron Holiday will be back in the rotation in the wake of Victor Oladipo's season-ending injury.

    Holiday has played well whenever he's been given the chance this season, but Indiana's backcourt depth has left him largely out in the cold in terms of playing time. He's worth a look in deep leagues, but we wouldn't expect the world or anything. If nothing else, it'll give the Pacers an opportunity to look ahead with both Darren Collison and Cory Joseph headed for free agency. Edmond Sumner will also be recalled from the G-League to fill Holiday's old role.

    Aaron Holiday (illness) is available to play on Friday.

    Just because he's available doesn't mean he will, which is unfortunate considering how well Holiday's played when given the chance. It's going to take an injury to Darren Collison, Cory Joseph or Tyreke Evans to get him consistent minutes.

    Aaron Holiday (illness) is questionable to play on Friday.

    Holiday unfortunately isn't in the rotation while Tyreke Evans is healthy. He's only a dynasty play this year but has looked quite good whenever he does get on the floor.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) has been ruled out of Friday’s game vs. the Nets.

    Evans’ absence means more run for Cory Joseph while rookie Aaron Holiday should rejoin the rotation. Doug McDermott is also a possible beneficiary.

  • Tyreke Evans - G - Indiana Pacers

    Tyreke Evans (right knee bruise) is a true game-time decision for Friday’s game against the Nets.

    Evans was previously listed as questionable so he’ll see how he feels after pregame warmups. If he can’t go, Aaron Holiday and maybe Doug McDermott look to pick up his usage.

    Aaron Holiday didn't leave the bench on Wednesday.

    This was expected with Victor Oladipo returning to action, but it's still disappointing considering Holiday had been playing well. He's safe to drop in the vast majority of re-draft leagues.

  • Victor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers

    Victor Oladipo (knee) went through an optional shoot around on Friday afternoon.

    While Dipo is still out indefinitely it’s a good sign that he’s been increasing practice activity. He seems to be trending in the right direction and hopefully won’t be out too much longer. Cory Joseph, Tyreke Evans and even Aaron Holiday will get increased touches until he gets back.

  • Victor Oladipo - G - Indiana Pacers

    The Pacers have listed Victor Oladipo (knee) as out indefinitely.

    We assume this means he won’t play on Saturday against the Kings. Dipo has already missed six games and he is on record that he’ll only return when he’s 100 percent. Until he gets back it’ll be Tyreke Evans and Cory Joseph that stand to benefit the most while Aaron Holiday and Doug McDermott are options for deeper formats.
