    Alex Len, Buddy Hield and Jabari Parker have yet to join the rest of their Kings teammates in Orlando clear (test negative for) the coronavirus protocol for the NBA's 'bubble' at Disney World.

    This update was courtesy of head coach Luke Walton, via Kings Insider James Ham, after it was reported that the trio tested positive on June 24. Len apparently never felt symptoms. Parker, for his part, broke his quarantine when he was seen playing tennis in his native Chicago (where he is in isolation) on video. There's a chance Len and Hield will be able to report to Orlando before Parker because of this, but all three must clear protocol before they can make the trip to the bubble.

    Shams Charania reported that Alex Len tested positive for coronavirus and is in isolation.

    Len seems to be feeling well, saying that he looks forward to "being cleared and rejoining my teammates for our playoff push." He is now the third player on the Kings to test positive for coronavirus, joining Buddy Hield and Jabari Parker. All three players are in self-isolation and plan to return to the team when they are cleared.

    Coach Luke Walton said he anticipates having Richaun Holmes (shoulder) back as early as Saturday and said he may play in both games over the weekend.

    This is huge news for Holmes owners as he's expected to return just in time for some very critical games for fantasy playoffs. Squeeze as much as possible out of Alex Len and Harry Giles until that happens.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder) has been cleared for full contact but will not play in Thursday's game against the Sixers.

    Holmes has been working his way back from a sprained shoulder that has kept him out since early January. After Thursday's game, the Kings have a back-to-back that starts on Saturday. Continue to monitor reports but it appears likely that Holmes will return in the near future barring a setback. His eventual return will affect the fantasy values of Harry Giles, Nemanja Bjelica and Alex Len.

    Alex Len put up eight points with 13 boards and five blocks in a win over the Pistons on Sunday.

    Len has been a blocks machine as of late and he is a solid source for rebounds. Keep an eye on his role upon the return of Richaun Holmes as he could be worth holding in standard formats.

    Voice of the Kings Grant Napear said on Twitter that he expects Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) back, "This coming week if I had to guess."

    The team is yet to announce any official updates or timetables after saying Holmes would be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks on February 11. For what it's worth, Napear also said during the Kings' broadcast that he watched Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) go through a vigorous workout prior to the game, dunking and shooting threes, and that he looks like he is close to getting back. Although Holmes may not be inserted into the starting lineup right away, make sure he is not floating around any waiver wires as it looks like he might be back just in time for the fantasy playoffs.

    Alex Len made his Kings debut on Sunday, playing 16 minutes and posting three points, eight rebounds, a steal and a block.

    Len returned from an 11-game absence from a right hip flexor injury and could be in line for additional minutes while Richaun Holmes is out, though Harry Giles put up a great game to try and hold off the competition today. Len's someone to keep an eye on in 16-team leagues but is hard to endorse in anything shallower for now.

    Alex Len (right hip flexor) is expected to to play "a few minutes" against the Clippers on Saturday according to Kings beat writer Sean Cunningham.

    Len hasn't seen game action for about a month now so he will be eased in slowly. With Marvin Bagley and Richuan Holmes currently on the shelf, Harry Giles and Nemanja Bjelica have been forced into all of the center minutes so there is opportunity for Len at least until Holmes returns but he shouldn't be more than a watchlist guy for now.

    Alex Len (right hip flexor) is being listed as questionable on the injury report for Saturday's matchup with the Clippers.

    Len has yet to make his Kings debut. With the front court depth on their roster, it's hard to see Len carving out a role for himself the rest of the way. However, with Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley both dealing with injuries, Len could see some minutes if he stays healthy. As we know, anything can happen in Sacramento.

    Alex Len (right hip flexor) is questionable on the injury report but Luke Walton said that the big man will not play on Thursday.

    Despite the official designation, the Kings will keep Len on the sidelines in their first game out of the All-Star break. After frittering away a chance to start in Atlanta, Len should be off most fantasy radars. He'll have a chance to earn good minutes with Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley out injured but it's hard to envision Len becoming more than a deep-league asset at his peak.

    Alex Len (right hip flexor) is questionable ahead of Thursday's game.

    Len has been out since late January and perhaps the All-Star break was enough to get him ready to play. He'll have a chance at minutes while Richaun Holmes is still sidelined, but it would take a surprising workload to make Len a priority add in even 16-team leagues.

    Alex Len (right hip flexor strain) will not play on Wednesday.

    Harry Giles and Nemanja Bjelica will fill in for now. Len has averaged 8.7 points and 5.8 rebounds per game this season.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) will not play on Monday or Wednesday.

    He'll be unavailable through the All-Star break according to Luke Walton. Nemanja Bjelica will be busy without Holmes, Alex Len or Jabari Parker cleared to play on Monday.

    Alex Len (right shoulder strain) is being listed as out for Monday's game versus the Bucks.

    The Kings are still waiting for their newly acquired players to play, but surprisingly Jabari Parker is being listed as questionable. Nemanja Bjelica would continue handling a heavy workload of Parker is unable to suit up.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) is being listed as out for Monday's game versus the Bucks.

    Holmes was appearing to be closer to returning, but as the All-Star week approaches it seem increasingly more likely that he will sit out until then. Nemanja Bjelica will continue to handle a heavy workload while Holmes, Jabari Parker and Alex Len are out.
