Holiday did not practice Thursday and remains questionable for Friday night’s game in Indianapolis because of soreness in the longitudinal arch of his left foot. Holiday had X-rays taken, which came back negative for a fracture. However, Holiday was still awaiting the results of an MRI on Thursday afternoon.
Holiday has taken on the role as the fulcrum of the offense with no Bynum and has had by far his best year — 18.6 points per game on 45.1 percent shooting overall, while dishing out 8.9 assists per game. All of those are career highs. He has a PER of 18.2.
The Sixers are 12-10 and playing over their head, winning more games than their point differential would suggest. They are still defending fairly well, but their offense is 24th in the NBA in points per possession. And without Holiday that would be far worse.
They can’t really afford to be without him for a while, too.
