Jrue Holiday injury update: 76ers' guard will return vs. Hawks

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Philadelphia 76ers' point guard Jrue Holiday says he will play tonight against the Atlanta Hawks after missing four games with a foot injury.

The Philadelphia 76ers will get Jrue Holiday back on Friday night when they host the Atlanta Hawks. Holiday missed the last four games with a foot injury, but said on Friday morning that he will play against the Hawks. The Sixers have lost all four games without Holiday.

Philadelphia has fallen to 12-14 with Holiday on the bench, as he has been their best player this season. Holiday is averaging 18.4 points, 8.9 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. While Holiday was out, the Sixers had been starting either Nick Young or rookie Maalik Wayns in the backcourt alongside Jason Richardson.

Evan Turner will also play against the Hawks after spraining his ankle on Wednesday. The sprained ankle forced Turner to leave the game in the third quarter on Wednesday against the Rockets; Philly would go on to lose 125-103. Turner has arguably been the Sixers' second-best player this season, averaging 15.1 points, 6.9 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game.
