Justin Holiday will only post Bible verses on social media

New York Knicks shooting guard Justin Holiday has made a vow to limit his social media outings to only Bible verses.

The Holiday family has been going through a rough time, since his brother, Jrue Holiday has missed the last couple of months tending to his ailing wife, Lauren, who recently underwent brain surgery for a tumor after giving birth to a baby girl.

Jrue is set to come back to the New Orleans Pelicans this week and is expected to make a debut against the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday.

Justin announced he’d stay off social media as an effort to strengthen his prayer work.

“Pretty much focus my time on my relationship with the Lord instead of spending time on social media,” Holiday told Marc Berman of the New York Post. “Reading more scripture and praying. [Lauren is] doing as good as you can be after a brain surgery. I want to let [Jrue] know I’m praying for him. I know she’s recovering. It’s not as easy as it sounds — the word recovering — it’s not that easy. She’s doing the best she can.”

Holiday indicated mixed feelings about his brother’s return to basketball.

“I’m excited about it if he wants to come back and feels he’s ready,” Holiday said. “If it’s time for him to come back and help his team, it’s good because they need him and if it makes him happier and feel better. Being there for his family is more important than basketball. It’s good for him, but it’s not drastic if he doesn’t play. He wants to make sure his family is OK. We think it’s going well, but it’s a process. If he has to leave again, I’m sure he will.”

The Washington alum has recently earned more minutes under coach Jeff Hornacek, but is still stuck behind Courtney Lee and Sasha Vujacic in the team’s depth chart.

His three-point shooting and athleticism are his greatest asset, and could prove valuable down the stretch of the season if the Knicks were to need resources.

Justin Holiday has played in all 11 games so far this season, averaging 18 minutes and 6.1 points per game.
