  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes was sidelined with an ankle sprain on Tuesday but was able to gleam in limited minutes this year.

    A Hoop Ball favorite, Holmes somehow managed to produce top-130-150 value (9/8 cat) on the season in only 16.9 minutes per game. He gave Deandre Ayton a run for his money during his strong stretch of play from November-January and on a per-36 basis he produces at a top-40 level. We've seen the monster lines and his production when given minutes so there's no doubt the talent is there. He plays with an extremely high motor and he does everything you want from a modern big in the NBA. Some lucky team is going to sign him this offseason and we're hoping it's one that can give him a larger role than the one he had this year.

    Richaun Holmes (left ankle sprain) is out for Tuesday's game with the Mavs.

    Ray Spalding, who exploded for 21 points, 13 rebounds, three blocks and three steals two games ago, and Dragan Bender, who has provided top-110 9-cat league value the past two weeks, are in line for extended runs once again. Each makes for an intriguing DFS plays in a nice matchup with the Mavs.

    Richaun Holmes (left ankle sprain) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup vs. the Mavericks.

    Holmes has played in only two of his last five games and is in jeopardy of missing the final game of the season. With Deandre Ayton already ruled out he'd get a good bit of opportunity so it would be good to see him get out there. However, if he can't suit up then Ray Spalding and Dragan Bender have the most to gain from it.

    Richaun Holmes (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    With both Holmes and Deandre Ayton out, it will be another Dragan Bender and Ray Spalding showcase. All praise silly season.

    Richaun Holmes (left ankle sprain) has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's matchup with the Rockets.

    Holmes had previously been listed as questionable, and he was actually probable on Friday before being ruled out. He's missing a great chance to put up huge numbers but fantasy owners can turn to Dragan Bender and Ray Spalding for potential production in the meantime.

    Richaun Holmes (left ankle sprain) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rockets.

    Holmes was listed as probable for Friday's game before being ruled out. If he cannot go again, Ray Spalding and Dragan Bender will be in for a bigger workload once again.

  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes (left ankle sprain) has been ruled out of Friday’s game vs. the Pelicans.

    Holmes was previously labeled probable but his absence means the short-handed Suns will have to dig deep to find a warm body to start next to Dragan Bender. That could mean Ray Spalding but his lack of any kind of track record means he is a risky play.

    Richaun Holmes (sprained ankle) is probable to play in Friday's game against the Pelicans.

    With Deandre Ayton already ruled out with an ankle injury, the Suns will need some big bodies out on the floor. This should mean that Holmes will play and start unless his injury is worse than we expect. If he does miss time, look for Dragan Bender to play upwards of 30 minutes and produce well above his career averages.

  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes started and scored 16 points on 8-of-16 shooting with nine rebounds, four assists and one block over 38 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Jazz.

    Holmes is also dealing with thigh and ankle issues but he's getting playing time right now, it would be pretty silly to bring back Deandre Ayton (ankle) and he's playing for his next contract. We'll get to see which NBA teams have decent GMs this summer, as Holmes is one of the best big men in the league that nobody (except Hoop Ballers) know about.

  • Richaun Holmes - F/C - Phoenix Suns

    Richaun Holmes double-doubled on Monday against the Cavs with 13 points and 10 rebounds to go with two blocks.

    What a surprise, Holmes producing big stats in 24 minutes of action. He went 6-for-7 from the floor and should be owned in all formats as Deandre Ayton's season might be finished. Some lucky team is going to nab Holmes next season and we're hoping it's one that'll play him more than the Suns have.
