Richaun Holmes drew his second start of the season, alongside Joel Embiid on Tuesday.
With Robert Covington (back) sitting out, the Sixers went with a lineup of Ben Simmons, J.J. Redick, Dario Saric, Holmes and Embiid against the Timberwolves. This is the first time we will see Holmes starting with Embiid, so the Sixers are trying something new. Holmes has a lot of potential if giving the playing time, and it looked as though his only path came on days that Embiid was resting, until now. Covington is due back next game, but keep Holmes closely on your watch list as the Sixers experiment. He is a high-potential add if the uptick in playing time continues.
