Aaron Holiday scored 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting with an assist and two triples on Monday.
Holiday played well off the bench again, but this game was a blowout loss so it's hard to really take anything away here.

Aaron Holiday was shifted to a reserve role on Friday but was unfazed as he posted 19 points on 8-of-9 shooting, adding three rebounds, two 3s and eight dimes.
The Pacers opted to start T.J. McConnell, who was uninspiring with four points, three rebounds, four dimes and one steal in 26 minutes. Aaron Holiday continues to be the PG to own between the two and should still have a strong rotation presence when Malcolm Brogdon returns.
January 10, 2020, 5:20 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Suffering from strep throat, Malcolm Brogdon has been listed as questionable for Friday's matchup with the Bulls.
This is a new issue for Brogdon and it looks like we are heading for a game-time decision on Brogdon's status. It is unlikely he receives a starters dose of minutes in his first game back. Whether or not Brogdon takes the floor, Aaron Holiday will still have some nice value on Friday, and TJ McConnell also remains in the conversation in deeper leagues.

Malcolm Brogdon (lower back soreness) will not play against the Heat on Wednesday.
Brogdon will miss his seventh game in eight opportunities. Aaron Holiday, T.J. McConnell and Edmond Sumner will continue to see additional minutes with Brogdon ruled out.

Malcolm Brogdon (lower back soreness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Heat on Wednesday.
If Brogdon is forced to sit out another game, T.J. McConnell and Aaron Holiday will continue to soak up extra minutes and usage.

Malcolm Brogdon (back) did not participate in the live portions of practice on Tuesday and is a game-time decision on Wednesday against the Heat.
Brogdon is in danger of missing another game after making it through just a handful of minutes after returning from hamstring soreness. Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell will continue to get extended run if Brogdon is unable to suit up.

Jeremy Lamb rounded up a helpful collection of stats on Monday as he double-doubled with 11 points on 5-of-11 shooting, 10 rebounds, four assists, three steals and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes as the Pacers beat the Hornets in Charlotte.
Lamb has been reliable this season, but he's outside the top-100 over the past month. He's great if you need someone to help across the board, but he doesn't stand out in any particular category. Aaron Holiday also started but struggled with his shot in this one, as he had just three points on 1-of-7 FGs, two boards, five dimes, two swipes and a trey in 27 minutes.
January 4, 2020, 10:42 pmAaron HolidayPG, Indiana Pacers
Aaron Holiday scored 16 points (5-of-19 from the floor) on Saturday and added six assists in 32 minutes.
Holiday should be owned in all leagues while Malcolm Brogdon (lower back soreness) is out of the lineup. Holiday has played well with increased opportunity and is worth holding in 14-team leagues even after Brogdon returns.
January 3, 2020, 12:54 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Malcolm Brogdon (lower back soreness) was held out of practice on Friday and did not travel with the Pacers for their upcoming matchups vs. Atlanta and Charlotte.
He'll miss the next two games so his next shots to suit up will be next Wednesday against the Heat. If Aaron Holiday is available in your league, he's needs to be added immediately for the time being and T.J. McConnell will also see an increased workload while Brogdon is sidelined.

Aaron Holiday produced six points with 10 assists and nothing else in the Pacers' loss to the Nuggets on Thursday.
Holiday has been starting in the absence of Malcolm Brogdon (sore lower back), but is still just an assist-streamer in standard leagues at the moment.
January 2, 2020, 2:23 pmEdmond SumnerPG, Indiana Pacers
Edmond Sumner (right knee soreness) is being listed as out for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.
With Sumner joining Malcolm Brogdon on the sidelines, it will be Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell running the show for the Pacers tonight. Holiday has been a top-65 player in 9/8 cat leagues, and the highest-rated Pacer, over the last two weeks and should be picked up while Brogdon is out. McConnell is a name to look at for those searching for assists as he has averaged 8.8 points and 6.3 assists over the past two weeks.

Malcolm Brogdon (lower back soreness) is being listed as out for Thursday's matchup with the Nuggets.
Brogdon returned from an injured hamstring on Tuesday but had to depart after just eight minutes due to this new injury. Brogdon has been a top-50 player on a per-game basis for the season but has dealt with a myriad of injuries during his first year with the Pacers. Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell will be busy against the Nuggets.

Edmond Sumner (right knee soreness) is listed as doubtful for Thursday's game against the Nuggets.
Sumner played just two minutes on Tuesday after suffering the injury on Saturday. He's just a depth player for the Pacers even when he is healthy. Aaron Holiday and T.J. McConnell should be very busy with Sumner and Malcolm Brogdon ailing.

Aaron Holiday started for the injured Malcolm Brogdon at halftime and finished with five points, five rebounds, seven assists, two blocks and one triple on 2-of-8 shooting in 30 minutes vs. the 76ers on Tuesday.
This wasn't his best shooting night but he's already proven that he can be a serious fantasy asset when given the opportunity. Brogdon is currently dealing with back spasms and his status for Thursday's game is up in the air. If he has to miss time, Holiday would be an instant pickup and would see a big boost in opportunity.
December 31, 2019, 5:45 pmMalcolm BrogdonPG, Indiana Pacers
Malcolm Brogdon (lower back) did not return to Tuesday's game vs. the 76ers after playing just eight minutes.
Brogdon couldn't finish the game and it was very evident that he wasn't 100 percent. He finished the game with just two assists and one turnover on 0-of-5 shooting and Aaron Holiday got the start after halftime. If Brogdon is set to miss an extended period of time, Holiday and TJ McConnell will be the biggest beneficiaries with the former having the most upside. Stay tuned for updates.
