    Richaun Holmes (right hip soreness) will not suit up for the team's season finale with the Lakers on Thursday.

    Holmes looked out of sorts when he was able to play in the bubble, finishing the Orlando bubble outside of standard league value. Hopefully, this will allow Holmes to have some value heading into next year's drafts. Alex Len and Harry Giles should get extra run on Thursday.

    Richaun Holmes (right hip soreness) will not suit up for the Kings during their match with the Pelicans on Tuesday.

    The Kings are now merely spectators when it comes to the playoff race and so this could be a shutdown for Holmes. After a fantastic start to the fantasy season, injury cruelled his last couple of months prior to the shutdown. Despite appearing healthy upon the resumption, Holmes was very disappointing and for that reason, he could be overlooked in a number of leagues heading into next season.

    Kent Bazemore (left calf soreness) is questionable for the Kings' game on Sunday as he continues to recover from a calf injury.

    Bazemore could join Richaun Holmes (right hip soreness) on the sidelines which would open up playing time for both DaQuan Jefferies and Cory Joseph. Despite the increased opportunity, neither are worth rostering in the short-term.

    Richaun Holmes (right hip soreness) will not suit up for the Kings on Sunday after being forced to leave early during Friday's game.

    Holmes has been struggling with an ongoing hip injury for the past few days and it will ultimately cost him a spot in the lineup on Sunday. He has been a shadow of his former self when compared to his production from earlier in the season. Sitting outside the top-150 during the resumption period and now struggling with an injury, Holmes could be a drop if you need healthy bodies on the floor.

    Richaun Holmes will miss the second half of the Kings-Nets contest due to right hip soreness.

    Holmes just can't get it together. He will finish the game with one point, five rebounds and one turnover. It was one heck of a run during the first half of the season, but an old defect, injuries, appears to be returning to the scene, and it could quickly send his stock plunging for next year's drafts if his restart is now done.

    Alex Len is starting the second half instead of Richaun Holmes in Friday's game vs. the Nets.

    The Kings struggled in the first half, and it's unclear if this was a lineup change due to performance or because of Holmes' hip issues. Either way, it's not a good sign for Holmes' future outlook, and Len deserves a bump in your overall outlook for these last few restart games.

    Richaun Holmes (hip) will be in the starting lineup when the Kings face the Nets on Friday.

    Holmes saw 32 minutes in yesterday's contest against the Pelicans, and odds are he will improve upon the eight points, five boards and two steals he produced if he gets that many minutes on Friday vs. the Nets. The Kings remain in the conversation for a playoff spot in the Western Conference, and it would be great for Holmes to lock in for an early-round value performance vs. some weak competition.

    Richaun Holmes will see how his sore right hip is feeling after warmups regarding his availability for Friday vs. the Nets.

    Holmes has not excelled like he did in the first half of the fantasy season, and if he were to miss this game it would further add to the dreadful conclusion he's had to the 2019-20 campaign. Stay tuned for a final verdict on his status.

    Richaun Holmes is questionable for the Kings' second half of their back-to-back on Friday vs. the Nets as he deals with a sore right hip.

    Holmes has not been able to provide the value that many expected going into the restart and with just eight games, it will be very difficult for him to see positive regression. If Holmes is unable to play today, look for Harry Giles and Alex Len to get more minutes at center while Nemanja Bjelica will also see more time when the team decides to go small. With a 2:00 PM PST tip-off, we should learn more at least an hour before gametime.

    Richaun Holmes didn't do much that we can see on the stat-sheet during Thursday's victory, scoring just eight points on 2-of-6 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes.

    Holmes is currently outside the top-100 in resumption leagues as he has been unable to find the groove that he was in earlier in the season when he was much more productive on both ends. However, he is still getting starter-level minutes and there isn't anyone coming for his job which bodes well for his prospects in the last four games.

    Richaun Holmes hauled in 12 rebounds in 25 minutes against the Mavericks on Tuesday, adding eight points and one block.

    Holmes is yet to bust-out for the Kings and produced another underwhelming stat line in Tuesday's loss. The 12 rebounds were nice but the defensive production has been disappointing, to say the least. It appears his playing time is being kept in check by the coaching staff and that certainly limits his upside. He is still worth rostering but may not be able to reach the heights from earlier in the season.

    Richaun Holmes had another smooth individual performance on Sunday against the Magic, posting 12 points (5-of-7 FG) and five rebounds over 24 minutes.

    Holmes failed to record a block or steal for the second straight outing, but the blocks and steals will come with time for the underappreciated center. He is gradually returning to the early-round value that made him one of the best selections across fantasy this season. A strong percentage from the field along with potent free-throw shooting (2-of-2 in this one) are his calling cards. For the final six games Holmes is shaping up to be an end of the roster option.

    Alex Len will miss another game on Sunday as he continues to work his way back from illness.

    Len will continue to warm the bench for the Kings after being ruled out for Sunday's tilt with the Magic. After a positive COVID-19 test more than a month ago, Len is apparently still battling the after-effects of the illness. Richaun Holmes should continue to get all the minutes he can handle moving forward. While Len is certainly not a fantasy juggernaut, the Kings do need his defense on the floor. If he can carve out a 20-minute role, he could have some backend value.

    Richaun Holmes fouled out of Friday's contest against the Spurs, finishing his evening with 10 points (3-of-5 FG), six rebounds and an assist in 24 minutes.

    Holmes was in a bit of foul trouble and saw significantly fewer minutes than fellow starters Harrison Barnes (37) and Nemanja Bjelica (30). As is to be expected, Holmes was not in top form as both the Spurs and the Kings played their first of eight seeding games in the NBA's Orlando 'bubble' at Disney World. He had only played in two games prior to the NBA pause due to COVID-19 after missing 25 games with a right shoulder injury. The Kings are a long shot to make the playoffs but Holmes will have at least seven more games to regain his footing a bit before the short offseason heading into 2020-21.

    Richaun Holmes is expected to play against the Spurs on Friday without any restrictions.

    This is the best news possible for basketball lovers and Kings fans. Holmes was absolutely killing it for the Kings before he hurt his shoulder and the time off helped him fully recover from his injury. The Kings' playoffs chances were looking grim when Holmes went down, but now that he's back, they should be one of the most interesting teams to watch in the bubble.
