Richaun Holmes has been cleared for limited practice after being reevaluated but will remain out for three more games before being reevaluated again next Thursday, per Rich Hofmann of The Athletic.
Holmes appears to be nearing a return and should reward owners who have been patient with the high-upside big man. With Dario Saric offering muted production and Jahlil Okafor more or less out of the picture, there shouldn’t be too much blocking Holmes’ path fantasy value. A must-own, go pick him up if he’s on waivers and your league doesn’t penalize for rostering inactive players. Holmes was an elite asset down the stretch last season and the Sixers seem to have figured out that he’s an important part of the future.
