Aaron Holiday (upper respiratory infection) returned to the court on Tuesday against the Wolves, scoring nine points and dishing out four assists in 17 minutes off the bench.
Fellow point guard T.J. McConnell (10 points and eight assists in 20 minutes tonight) has been soaking up enough of the point-guard minutes, that Holiday's role isn't simply the full-time backup point guard that many fantasy players hoped. Edmond Sumner (upper respiratory infection) also played after previously being listed as questionable. Sumner had 11 points and four assists in 26 minutes off the bench.

Aaron Holiday (illness) is available to play against the Wolves on Tuesday.
Holiday should get a decent amount of run as the Pacers play their final preseason game tonight. He is unlikely to see enough minutes for fantasy purposes this year.

Aaron Holiday (illness) will not suit up for Friday’s preseason game against the Bulls.
Holiday has caught a bug that apparently has been going around the Pacers’ locker room so this isn’t all that surprising nor noteworthy long-term. Goga Bitadze (right ankle) was also ruled out for this game, which is also not a surprise given how the team has been assuming that he is questionable for their final preseason game on October 15th.

Aaron Holiday (illness) sat out of practice on Thursday.
The Pacers have a sickness going around the locker room. This is nothing serious. Holiday may miss the team's game on Friday as a result but he should be fine after a few days.

The Pacers have excercised the third-year option on Aaron Holiday, keeping him with the team through at least 2020-21 per Shams Charania of The Athletic.
The Pacers really like Holiday, but he is unlikely to find enough minutes to matter in most fantasy leagues this year.

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.
