Description: The Pelicans announced Friday that Jrue Holiday underwent a successful surgery to correct a stress fracture in his right tibia and will miss the rest of the season.
Insight: Holiday last played on Jan. 8 and will finish his first season with the Pelicans with averages of 14.3 points, 7.9 assists, 4.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals over 34 games. He made the All-Star team with the 76ers in 2012-13 before being traded for the rights to Nerlens Noel and a 2014 first-round pick.

Description: The Pelicans announced Wednesday that point guard Jrue Holiday is still out indefinitely. SOURCE: Jim Eichenhofer, Pelicans.com
Insight: Holiday has missed six weeks with a stress fracture in his leg. There was some optimism that he could be back in about a week but that seems to have quickly faded. Brian Roberts (8.4 ppg, 3.0 apg) has been starting in Holiday's absence.
 
2/18/2014 12:06:00 PM
Description: New Orleans point guard Jrue Holiday is expected to return in a week, if not sooner, according to Darrell Williams of the New Orleans Advocate.
Insight: For the season he's averaging 14.3 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 7.9 apg, 1.6 spg and fantasy owners would like that back as soon as possible as he hasn't played since Jan 8.
 
Cold1/10/2014 1:23:00 PM
Description: New Orleans point guard Jrue Holiday is out indefinitely with a stress fracture in his right tibia.
Insight: Early estimates are for a one-month absence. Holiday had produced single-digit points in his previous four outings, shooting just 11-for-37 over that span. The leg injury may explain his recent lack of production. For the season he's averaging 14.3 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 7.9 apg, 1.6 spg.
 
12/30/2013 10:50:00 PM
Description: New Orleans point guard Jrue Holiday produced 31 points, seven rebounds and 13 assists Monday in a win over Portland.
Insight: It comes on the heels of a pitiful three-point outing two nights earlier against Houston. The 31 points are the most Holiday has scored since joining the Pelicans in late June.
 
12/13/2013 10:34:00 PM
Description: Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday notched his sixth double-double of the season Friday against Memphis.
Insight: He finished with 20 points and 12 assists. The 23-year-old has shot over 50 percent from the three-point line over his last four games (9-of-17).
 
11/30/2013 9:45:00 AM
Description: New Orleans point guard Jrue Holiday collected 20 points, seven rebounds and 13 assists Friday in a win over his former team, the Philadelphia 76ers.
Insight: Somehow, Holiday is shooting better outside the three-point line than he is inside of it (43.8 percent on threes, 43.5 on twos) . Holiday's size (6-foot-4) makes him one of the better rebounding point guards in the league (4.1 rpg ranks sixth among point guards).
 
11/16/2013 10:38:00 PM
Description: Pelicans PG Jrue Holiday help his new team destroy his old team, the Philadelphia 76ers, with 14 points, 12 assists and six rebounds Saturday night.
Insight: Holiday hasn't quite been the threat he was last season with Philadelphia, when he averaged 37.5 minutes, 17.7 points, 8.0 assists, 4.2 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 1.2 threes and made the All-Star team. There are too many players who need the ball on this Pelicans team to expect that type of production again, especially with Ryan Anderson returning to action Saturday.
 
6/27/2013 10:01:00 PM
Description: The Pelicans acquired Jrue Holiday Thursday in exchange for Nerlens Noel and a top-five protected pick in next year's draft.
Insight: It's bad news for Greivis Vasquez, who really came into his own as the starter last season. Holiday had his best season in 2012-13, averaging a career-best 17.7 ppg en route to his first All-Star selection. The 76ers will presumably use rookie Michael Carter-Williams at point guard next season.
 
Cold4/3/2013 9:51:00 PM
Description: Sixers point guard Jrue Holiday had an off-shooting night Wednesday against Charlotte (2-of-24).
Insight: Calling it an "off-night" might be putting it kindly. Holiday has had rough shooting nights before (6-for-17 Saturday against the Bobcats) but nothing quite like this. Luckily he was able to salvage the night somewhat by producing eight assists and three steals.
 
3/16/2013 10:10:00 PM
Description: 76ers guard Jrue Holiday impressed fantasy owners with 27 points, six rebounds and 12 assists Saturday against Indiana.
Insight: The Sixers dug their own grave by going 3-8 in February. Not having Andrew Bynum all year probably hasn't helped. But for fantasy owners, the outlook is much brighter. Holiday is one of the feel-good stories in all of basketball this season. Once a no-name, Holiday (18.6 ppg, 8.7 apg, 4.2 rpg) has emerged as one of the best point guards in the Eastern Conference. Fantasy owners who took a chance on Holiday on draft day have been handsomely rewarded. See, there is a happy ending.
 
3/8/2013 11:50:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday is probable for Friday's game against Miami with a sprained left thumb.
Insight: Holiday shot just 3-of-12 on Wednesday, perhaps, effected by the thumb. He is averaging 19.0 ppg, 4.2 rpg, 8.6 apg in his first All-Star season.
 
2/24/2013 10:01:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia guard Jrue Holiday finished with 30 points, five rebounds and five assists Sunday in a loss to the Knicks.
Insight: That's well above his season average of 19.2 ppg. Holiday is now averaging 18.4 ppg for the month. That's slightly below what he averaged in January (20.9 ppg in 14 games).
 
2/4/2013 10:08:00 PM
Description: Sixers All-Star point guard Jrue Holiday dished out 14 assists Monday in a win against Orlando.
Insight: Monday was Holiday's 15th double-digit assist game of the season, which is already 14 more than he had all of last season. Holiday ranks fourth in the NBA this season with 9.0 apg.
 
2/1/2013 10:20:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday had a typical statistical night Friday against the Kings: 21 points, seven assists, six rebounds, one steal, one three, and too many turnovers.
Insight: Holiday had an ugly eight turnovers in the game. He coughed the ball up 4.4 times per game in January.
 
1/26/2013 10:25:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday led the Sixers to victory over the Knicks Saturday with 35 points (16-25 FG), six assists, five rebounds, one steal and one turnover.
Insight: Holiday was miserable in his previous two games (10-32 FG, 14 TOs) but he scored 92 points in the three games prior to that so the good is outweighing the bad by far.
 
Hot1/18/2013 10:14:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday dumped in another 33 points with 14 assists, five rebounds and three steals in 45 minutes of play on Friday.
Insight: Holiday has scored 92 points with 34 assists, 13 rebounds, 11 steals and six threes while making 34-of-62 from the field and 18-of-20 from the free-throw line over his last three games.
 
Hot1/15/2013 9:47:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday is averaging 29.5 points, 10 assists, 4.0 rebounds, 4.0 steals and 2.5 threes over his last two games.
Insight: Holiday dropped 29 points with 11 assists, five boards, four steals and four treys on the Hornets Monday.
 
1/13/2013 9:20:00 AM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday had 30 points, nine assists, three rebounds, four steals and a block Saturday against the Rockets.
Insight: Of course, he also turned the ball over six times. If you can handle nearly four turnovers per game, Holiday's 18.7 ppg, 8.8 ast, 4.1 reb and 1.3 stl make him an attractive option.
 
1/8/2013 9:31:00 PM
Description: Philadelphia point guard Jrue Holiday was the only 76ers starter to score in double figures on Tuesday against the Nets. He had 19 points, eight assists, three boards and one steal in 30 minutes as the Sixers lost their 12th game in the last 15.
Insight: Holiday's production hasn't dropped off much after a hot start in November. His one blemish is an NBA-worst 3.8 turnovers per game but fantasy owners can work around that.
