  • Marvin Bagley III
    PF, Sacramento Kings

    Marvin Bagley scored 18 points on 8-of-17 shooting to go with six board and two blocks on Monday.

    Bagley is still coming off the bench in favor of Harry Giles (13 minutes, four points, three boards and three assists) even with Richaun Holmes (shoulder) shelved for a few weeks. It shouldn't matter though as Bagley has proven to be able to produce off the bench. He's only had six career starts, so that role shouldn't concern owners. As long as he's healthy you should be slotting him in your lineups.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) is expected to miss at least the next two to three weeks.

    Holmes downplayed the injury at first, but he is expected to be re-evaluated in two to three weeks, so his timetable is looking more like a month. This gives the Kings the opportunity to showcase Dewayne Dedmon for a few weeks

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Bucks.

    Holmes is going to miss another game so that should mean more Harry Giles on the docket. Marvin Bagley is questionable and may make his return from a sprained foot in this contest, which would be a welcome return for the Kings, who need all the help they can get against a strong Bucks squad.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) did not participate in Thursday's practice.

    This doesn't bode well for Holmes' status going forward after he never really had a chance to play on Tuesday (listed as doubtful and ruled out). With Marvin Bagley nearing a return, this is some poor timing for Holmes. He remains a hold in all formats, obviously.

    The Kings have ruled Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) out of Tuesday's game.

    Holmes said he should be okay after being forced out of Monday's game but the Kings will not push him in the SEGABABA. Harry Giles took Holmes' place after the injury occurred but we might see some Dewayne Dedmon as well. Giles is the better play if you're dying to get in on this situation, but that's really only because of a one-game sample — in a blowout win, no less. Let's see how the night unfolds.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) is being listed as doubtful for Tuesday's game against the Suns.

    Holmes was forced to leave Monday's win against the Warriors early with the shoulder issue but said afterward that he should be okay. The Kings may err on the side of caution and hold him out on the second night of a back-to-back. Harry Giles looks like the biggest beneficiary if Holmes misses time, while Dewayne Dedmon may get back into the rotation.

    Richaun Holmes traveled to Phoenix with the team after suffering a right shoulder strain on Monday and is hopeful he will be able to play against the Suns.

    The Kings haven’t issued an official update but we should know more about his status later today. Nemanja Bjelica and Harry Giles should be the main beneficiaries if Holmes is forced to miss any action, while the Kings might have to turn to disgruntled center Dewayne Dedmon as Marvin Bagley also remains sidelined.

    Richaun Holmes scored seven points on 3-of-5 shooting to go with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks on Monday before exiting with a shoulder injury.

    Holmes was the story of the night as he hurt his shoulder on a drive late in the third quarter. He walked towards the locker room trying to lift it, but was unable to do so all the way. He returned to the bench to finish the game and now the fantasy world patiently waits for his timetable.

    Richaun Holmes headed to the locker room with a shoulder injury.

    Holmes headed to the locker room with a shoulder injury with 7:25 left in the third quarter. This is an awful blow to the Kings and for fantasy owners as he was their best player all season. He's been ruled out for the rest of the game which isn't a surprise since the Kings are up big. Tomorrow's update will provide clarity on one of fantasy's top producers.

    Richaun Holmes double-doubled with 13 points, 12 boards, one steal and a block in Saturday's heart-breaking loss to the Pelicans.

    Holmes was efficient from the field in this one shooting 6-of-11 from the field and converting his only free throw. Surprisingly in nine-category leagues, Holmes is providing second-round value mostly due to his superior field goal efficiency and positive contributions in defensive statistics and rebounds. The lack of name brand recognition make him an interesting person to target in less competitive leagues as you may be able to snag him from a less-informed owner.

    Richaun Holmes went 7-of-10 from the field on Thursday night, posting 18 points, seven rebounds and two blocks in a win over the Grizzlies.

    Holmes even got some MVP chants in this one and has been a revelation for a Kings team that's stumbled into something great. Enjoy the show.

    Richaun Holmes scored 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting (6-of-6 FTs) with 10 rebounds, one steal and three blocks in the Kings' 105-87 loss to the Clippers on Tuesday.

    Leave it to the Kings to be the team to grab Holmes and also not know how good he is until the middle of the season (assuming they do know since they're still advertising half the team as All Star candidates and not him). He's ranked No. 23 in 9-cat leagues on the season and No. 38 in 8-cat formats. And because Hoop Ball readers have all of the Holmes out there, we'll probably celebrate that instead of the arbitrary restart of the Gregorian calendar.

    Richaun Holmes put together 18 points, six rebounds, two assists and one steal against the Nuggets on Sunday.

    If anything, the Kings should be giving Holmes even more minutes, but Harry Giles wound up getting 17 minutes off the bench in place of the injured Marvin Bagley III. Holmes has no problem putting together early-round value over 31 minutes a night though. Bagley's replacement for power forward minutes, Nemanja Bjelica, had a big night from the field as well, going 10-of-13 for 27 points, while offering six rebounds, five 3-pointers and one block. We've seen Bjelica produce nice numbers next to Holmes previously this season, and he is once again an add in standard leagues until Bagley returns.

    Richaun Holmes was a beast on Thursday, recording a career-high 18 rebounds to go with 20 points on 9-of-15 shooting, three assits, two steals and two blocks.

    Marvin Bagley III (foot) left this game after playing only 20 minutes, so we should see Holmes continue to provide early-round value until further notice.

    Despite sharing the starting frontcourt with Marvin Bagley III on Monday, Richaun Holmes still performed well, dropping 12 points (5-of-9 shooting), 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block.

    Holmes' performance is encouraging, especially given the context that he shared the paint with Bagley, something that was a looming concern for his owners. So far, so good, for Holmes' outlook. The biggest loser with Bagley's move appears to be Nemanja Bjelica, who moved to the bench and had just 10 points (4-of-11 shooting), two rebounds, two assists and two blocks.
