Richaun Holmes returned from a four-game absence on Sunday night and quickly asserted himself as the team's best healthy center, delivering 12 points (3-of-5 FG, 6-of-7 FT), 10 rebounds, a steal and four blocks in 27 minutes of action.
Holmes started the second half over Dragan Bender and appears to be very much over his right foot sprain. The Suns only play twice next week, which is a drag, and Deandre Ayton (sprained ankle) could be returning for the next one, which is an even bigger drag, but Holmes should be picked up in all formats if he was cut loose while injured. He's carving himself out a healthy role here, Ayton or no Ayton, and his stat set is extremely fantasy-friendly. He remains a must-own player.
