Jrue Holiday Will Miss Start of Season To Care for Wife


New Orleans Pelicans Guard Jrue Holiday will miss the beginning of the 2016-2017 NBA season to care for his wife, Lauren Holiday.  Lauren will undergo surgery to remove a brain tumor after she gives birth this fall.

Jrue Holiday

Lauren is a two-time Olympic Gold Medalist for the U.S women’s national soccer team, but retired last year to start a family with her husband.  Lauren found out two months ago about the benign tumor, which is on the right side of her brain.  The great news is that the tumor will not impact the pregnancy, and is treatable, reported by Jeff Duncan of The Times-Picayune.

On his wife’s health, Jrue says that she “has her good days and her bad days.”

Jrue ask that everyone send him and his family prayers during this tough time of his life.
