Top Aaron Holiday News

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Productive off bench Wednesday

    Holiday finished with 19 points (7-13 FG, 5-8 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one steal over 30 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 121-113 loss to the Grizzlies.

    The 27-year-old saw an increased role in the Rockets' backcourt once again with Fred VanVleet (thigh) sidelined, and Holiday produced his best scoring effort since he dropped 22 on the Thunder back on Dec. 6. He's scored in double digits in four straight games, his longest streak of the season, and Holiday is averaging 16.8 points, 3.0 assists, 3.0 threes and 2.3 boards during that stretch while shooting 52.0 percent from the floor and 44.4 percent (12-for-27) from beyond the arc. His run of fantasy relevance should come to an end once VanVleet is ready to return, however.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Busy scoring night

    Holiday produced 18 points (7-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds and four assists across 26 minutes during Monday's 105-103 victory over the Knicks.

    Holiday and Amen Thompson (eight points, 4-5 FG, 13 rebounds, five assists) coexisted nicely Monday, with Holiday absorbing the offensive volume between the duo. In games when Holiday plays at least 25 minutes this season, he's averaging 13.4 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Scores in double digits Friday

    Holiday totaled 12 points (5-13 FG, 2-8 3Pt), three rebounds, five assists and one steal across 31 minutes during Friday's 107-104 loss to the Raptors.

    The Rockets didn't have their best offensive showing Friday, but Holiday was one of several role players who stepped their game up off the bench. The lack of consistency is not surprising given the nature of his second-unit role, but under that same context, it's worth noting Holiday has scored in double digits in four of his last nine appearances.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Rotational role Saturday

    Holiday ended with six points (3-6 FG), three rebounds and one assist over 18 minutes during Saturday's 106-104 loss to the Nets.

    Even with Jabari Smith (ankle) and Tari Eason (lower leg) unavailable, Holiday wasn't overly incorporated into the action Saturday, with Cam Whitmore's shooting and Amen Thompson's defense providing more utility for coach Ime Udoka. Holiday best profiles as a streaming candidate when the Rockets' backcourt is shorthanded.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Unproductive in loss

    Holiday contributed five points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt), two rebounds and two assists across 19 minutes during Friday's 122-95 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Holiday failed to deliver meaningful production despite playing at least 15 minutes for the ninth time in the past 10 games. He has scored a combined 12 points across the last four games, adding 12 assists and two steals. Outside of the deepest formats, Holiday is not someone who should be viewed as a viable fantasy target.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Logs 26 mimutes in loss

    Holiday logged eight points (3-8 FG, 2-5 3Pt) and two rebounds across 26 minutes during Wednesday's 134-127 loss to the Hawks.

    Holiday played more than 20 minutes for just the seventh time this season, sticking on the floor to close the game. Although the playing time is encouraging, he failed to make the most of his opportunity, at least from a production standpoint. Outside of being an occasional streaming option, Holiday has very little fantasy value.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Drops season-high 22 points

    Holiday accumulated 22 points (8-13 FG, 6-7 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and one steal over 27 minutes during Wednesday's 110-101 victory over the Thunder.

    Holiday exploded off the bench, torching the Thunder for a season-high 22 points in 27 minutes. While this was certainly a fantastic performance, managers should not be fooled. Before Wednesday, he had scored in double digits only three times all season. Outside of being a speculative streaming option, Holiday has little sustainable fantasy value.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Moves back to bench

    Holiday will move back to the bench Saturday against the Lakers, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.

    Holiday will move back to the bench with Fred VanVleet returning to the starting unit Saturday. Holiday is averaging 5.8 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game when deployed off the bench this season.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Starting sans VanVleet

    Holiday is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game versus the Nuggets, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

    Holiday will replace VanVleet (thumb) in the starting five Wednesday. Holiday will make his first starting appearance this season and will likely be relied upon to play extended minutes with Amen Thompson (ankle) still out as well.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Plays well with second unit

    Holiday closed Tuesday's 121-115 loss to the Mavericks with eight points (3-8 FG, 2-4 3Pt), four rebounds and four assists across 21 minutes.

    Holiday has been a significant part of Houston's second unit and has played really well in recent games. Over his last four outings, Holiday has averaged 8.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.8 three-pointers in 20.2 minutes per contest.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Puts up 13 points

    Holiday provided 13 points (4-5 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and four steals over 28 minutes during Monday's 121-116 loss to the Warriors.

    Holiday had the hot hand off the bench for Houston, matching his season-best mark of 13 points. Monday's workload was also his largest of the season, breaking a streak of four straight games with minutes in the teens. He's worth keeping an eye on in case his role grows as a result of this strong performance.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Plays 11 minutes in win

    Holiday ended Wednesday's 128-119 win over the Hornets with six points (2-2 FG, 2-2 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 11 minutes.

    Holiday didn't see any playing time off the bench during Houston's last two games but played double-digit minutes for the first time this season Wednesday. Despite his slight uptick in playing time against Charlotte, he hasn't been a fantasy-relevant option to begin his time with the Rockets.

  • Rockets' Aaron Holiday: Inks deal with Houston

    The Rockets signed Holiday to a one-year, minimum contract Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Holiday will join his fifth team in the last four seasons. In 2022-23, the 26-year-old guard averaged 3.9 points, 1.4 assists and 1.2 rebounds in 13.4 minutes across 63 games. Holiday will likely be a depth piece in Houston's backcourt.

  • Hawks' Aaron Holiday: Returns to bench role

    Holiday isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game versus the Heat.

    Trae Young will replace Holiday in the starting five Tuesday after resting in the regular-season finale. Holiday may not receive significant playing time against Miami, as he has played fewer than five minutes in four of his last five appearances coming off the bench.

  • Hawks' Aaron Holiday: Starting Sunday

    Holiday will start Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Celtics, Lauren L. Williams of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

    Holiday gets a look at point guard with both Trae Young and Dejounte Murray resting for the contest, giving him some additional fantasy value Sunday. His role should retreat to normal Tuesday in the Play-In Tournament.

  • Hawks' Aaron Holiday: Offers steals impact off bench

    Holiday compiled eight points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, three steals, one rebound and one block in 21 minutes in Wednesday's 134-116 win over the Wizards.

    With Bogdan Bogdanovic (rest) joining De'Andre Hunter (knee) on the sideline for Wednesday's contest, Holiday was able to claim a heightened role in the rotation after being limited to just two minutes in Tuesday's 123-105 win over Chicago. The 41-39 Hawks currently sit in eighth place in the Eastern Conference and are unlikely to supplant the 42-37 Heat for the top position in the Play-In Tournament, so head coach Quin Snyder could elect to dole out rest to players such as Trae Young, Dejounte Murray, Bogdanovic and Hunter over the final two games of the regular season. If that's the case, Holiday may be able to maintain a 20-plus-minute role, but he typically hasn't been a reliable producer even on the rare occasions he's received extended playing time this season.
