Dan Besbris is a man who often likes to toe the line, but after a rather impactful Saturday, the weekend recap goes the full hour.

Justin Holiday managed 22 points on 8-of-13 from the field, including four 3-pointers, in Friday's loss to the Magic.
The Grizzlies were severely undermanned and Holiday was forced into a whopping 43 minutes of action. If he keeps logging huge minutes like this then he'll be back on the map as a steals and threes guy, but he's been too inconsistent for steady standard-league use since being traded from Chicago.

Justin Holiday started against the Blazers on Tuesday night but went scoreless, posting only one rebound and two steals in 25 minutes of work.
Holiday has a glimmer of hope left with Kyle Anderson (right shoulder) out for at least the next two weeks, but if he's going to make an impact in standard leagues it looks like it'll have to be as a steals specialist. Bruno Caboclo also disappointed in a start tonight, scoring one point with two assists in 15 minutes.

Justin Holiday (right knee soreness) is available for Sunday's matchup with the Thunder.
Holiday was initially questionable but will be able to suit up tonight. He's struggled plenty since joining the Grizzlies and is only a deep-league option these days.

Justin Holiday (knee) is being listed as questionable vs. the Thunder on Sunday.
Holiday hasn't been too good over his last five games as he's ranked outside of the top-260. He's more useful to the actual Grizzlies than he is to fantasy owners so don't be afraid to let go of him in some leagues.

Justin Holiday (right knee) returned to the bench against the Mavs on Saturday.
This is great news for Holiday and his fantasy owners since knee injuries are often quite scary when they occur. The Grizzlies are joyous to have him back on the floor again because he provides reliable defense against the opposing team's best players.

Justin Holiday (right knee) headed to the locker room in Saturday's game against the Mavs.

Justin Holiday didn't do much in Wednesday's game against his old Bulls, scoring 13 points with six rebounds and a steal in 31 minutes.
Holiday didn't hit a 3-pointer tonight, though he was more efficient than usual in hitting 6-of-13 shots. He's outside the top-225 over the last month and is only a deep-league value these days. Bruno Caboclo also slots into the mild disappointment category tonight, scoring seven points with a triple and a steal in 28 minutes in a start for Ivan Rabb.

Kyle Anderson (right shoulder soreness) will have another medical consultation next week and remains without a timetable to return.
This is at least the third consultation he’s gotten so far so it looks like there’s some uncertainty as to his injury or how to proceed with rehab. Justin Holiday, C.J. Miles, Bruno Caboclo and Chandler Parson will divvy up his minutes.

Justin Holiday started on Wednesday night against the Bulls but ended up playing 22 minutes, scoring three points with two assists and two steals.
Not good. Holiday had gotten things turned around after a rough patch following his move to Memphis but the new Grizzlies acquired at the deadline are going to be cramping his style. C.J. Miles played 24 minutes, Avery Bradley played a team-high 29 and Delon Wright played 26. And Kyle Anderson wasn't even around. Holiday simply isn't going to be worth holding if this is his new normal, so keep a close eye on the box scores coming out of the All-Star break.

Justin Holiday scored 15 points on 6-of-10 shooting (including three treys) with five rebounds and three assists over 31 minutes in another start on Saturday against the Pelicans.
Holiday has been a top-100 player when on the floor this season but it has come in a whopping 32.9 mpg sample. He got that much run tonight but things could get a bit more crowded as new and returning players get integrated. He's in a big shooting slump right now so the positive regression could be right around the corner.
February 7, 2019, 11:19 pmJustin HolidayG, Memphis Grizzlies
Justin Holiday logged 32 minutes on Thursday and scored six points on 2-of-11 shooting with a 3-pointer, six rebounds, three assists and a steal.
Holiday had an awful game with a ton of minutes played which isn't good news as the Grizzlies are bringing in Delon Wright and Avery Bradley over from the Raptors and Clippers, respectively. After being traded from the Bulls his value was thrown into the gutter and his recent run of value is only due to the fact that the team is fielding a maximum of nine guys per night. For now he's got the playing time and usage to be rostered, but things could change quickly if the newly integrated pieces start to take a piece of the pie as well.

Justin Holiday scored 17 points on 6-of-13 shooting (1-of-2 3PTs, 4-of-5 FTs) with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block over 39 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Wolves.
Holiday is a known quantity when getting the minutes and it has been pretty clear since arriving in Memphis that it would eventually happen for him. He's a must-own player in standard formats.

Justin Holiday put up 19 points, five rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers in Sunday's road win, going 7-of-16 from the field and hitting five triples.
Holiday is reportedly on the trade block but if he stays in Memphis he's likely to have huge minutes available — he played a team-high 37 today. A move would probably cap his minutes, and therefore his ceiling, but Holiday's play since leaving the Bulls have left him with only deep-league value anyway.
