Holiday (leg), for the second year in a row, had a season plagued with a leg injury, and as a result played in just 40 games and finished with averages of 14.8 points, 3.4 rebounds and 6.9 assists in 33 minutes per game. Holiday still has two years left on his 4-year, $41 million deal that he signed with the 76ers back in 2012.

Since his All-Star season in 2012-13, Holiday has had bad luck in dealing with leg injuries and has not been able to stay healthy. Holiday did undergo successful surgery in early May, but that is now his second leg surgery in as many years, and there is definitely cause for concern when looking at the long-term health of Holiday. When he is on the court, though, Holiday can be one of the most effective point guards in the NBA with both scoring and distributing. Before the All-Star break, Holiday was healthy and played and started in 37 games, and in that time he posted averages of 15.2 points, 3.5 rebounds and 7.1 assists over 33.7 minutes. So, it is clear that Holiday has fully proven he is a starting point guard in this league and it is now just a matter of staying healthy. With the emergence of Anthony Davis as a true superstar, he and Holiday could be a lethal one-two punch in the pick-and-roll in the coming seasons should the point guard get over these leg ailments.

Holiday (soreness) will play in Game 4 against the Warriors on Saturday, broadcaster Sean Kelley reports.

Holiday has dealt with some soreness throughout the playoffs but he'll ultimately be available off the bench in his expected role Saturday. Playing behind Tyreke Evans, Holiday has averaged 19 minutes on the court in the series with Golden State.

Holiday (soreness) is considered a game-time decision for Saturday's Game 4 against the Warriors according to coach Monty Williams, the Times Picayune reports.

The Pelicans are still being cautious with Holiday as they've now listed him as a game-time decision for all four of their playoff games thus far. Official word should be passed down ahead of the game, but Holiday is only expected to have a limited role off the bench if he does in fact take the court for the third time in the series.

Holiday isn't on the Pelican's injury report in advance of Saturday's game against the Warriors.

Holiday missed Game 2 of the first-round series due to soreness in his leg, but in his other two appearances, he's averaged 7.5 points (on 36 percent shooting), 4.5 assists, and 1.5 rebounds in 19 minutes. Although his workload will likely be capped around 20 minutes, he remains behind Tyreke Evans as New Orleans' primary ball handler at this time.

Holiday (soreness) came off the bench for 17 minutes in Game 3 against the Warriors on Thursday. He finished with 10 points, one rebound, four assists, and one block.

Holiday dealt with a major leg injury during the regular season and is still only able to play limited minutes off the bench for the rest of the playoffs. With that in mind, Tyreke Evans will continue to see the majority of minutes at point guard as the Pelicans look to stave off elimination in Game 4 on Saturday.

Holiday (soreness) is expected to play in Game 3 Thursday against the Warriors, John Reid of the Times-Picayune reports.

Holiday is not in the starting lineup for the Pelicans, but appears to be an option off the bench. It remains to be seen how much, or if he will indeed take the floor, but at this point indications are he'll see some minutes.

Holiday (soreness) continues to be listed as day-to-day, Tom Haberstroh of ESPN reports.

A game-time call for Game 2 against the Warriors, Holiday ended up being held out of action due to soreness in his leg. Monty Williams called Holiday "day-to-day" at Wednesday's practice, so the point guard should be considered questionable for Thursday's Game 3.

Holiday (soreness) has been ruled out for Monday's Game 2 against the Warriors.

Holiday was initially expected to play, but he is still experiencing soreness in his leg after going through a pregame workout. Considering Holiday is dealing with a slow-healing stress injury, the team will not take any chances. Expect Tyreke Evans to get the start at point guard, while Norris Cole should see increased minutes off the bench.
