    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) is now doubtful for Thursday's game against the Sixers.

    Holmes has been upgraded for tonight's tilt against the Sixers, but is still unlikely to take the court. He's been clearly for full contact in practice. Keep an eye out for news leading up to tonight's matchup. Harry Giles and Alex Len have filled in admirably recently in Holmes' absence.

    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.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder) participated in practice on Wednesday but didn't go through 5-on-5.

    Holmes is a must-own player across formats and a return appears within reach. This is a positive update but Holmes will need to clear more hurdles in order to get back on the court. Continue to monitor for updates over the coming days.

    The Kings are hopeful that Richaun Holmes (right shoulder) will return to practice next week.

    That would be a major step in his recovery, and depending on the exact practice dates the Kings have in mind it's possible that Holmes is back on the floor by the end of the week. We'd expect some restrictions when he is cleared to play as he's been out since January 6, but Holmes should go back to being a must-start fantasy stud once he's up to speed again. Just hope for another positive update in the coming days.

    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.

    Richaun Holmes received a PRP injection to treat a labral tear in his right shoulder and will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks.

    This is a tough break as it looked like Holmes was nearing a return to action last week before ultimately getting ruled out through the All-Star break. That break should help minimize the number of games he misses but this extending timeline, as well as the reveal that he's been dealing with a labral tear, is frustrating for fantasy GMs. Harry Giles should continue to start up front while this will create more minutes for Alex Len and maybe Jabari Parker when they get healthy. Nemanja Bjelica remains the safest fantasy option in Sacramento's frontcourt mix. Holmes has already missed 16 games but he's been so impactful when healthy that most GMs should just keep hanging on if at all possible.

    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.

    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.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Spurs.

    The Kings are expected to be without Holmes, Marvin Bagley and the their newly acquired bigs as well. Nemanja Bjelica and Harry Giles will be forced to do most of the heavy lifting in the frontcourt. Holmes is getting closer and closer to returning.

    Update: Richaun Holmes (right shoulder strain) still dealing with soreness.

    Holmes is not ready yet. He's missed the Kings' last 14 games which is really unfortunate because he was having an amazing season up until he strained his shoulder. He isn't cleared for full-contact so if you are currently stashing him, check for another update after the weekend.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder) is questionable for Friday's game against the Heat.

    Holmes remains questionable as of Thursday's late report. This remains what we expected, so hopefully we get a return from one of the top fantasy breakout stars this season.

    Head coach Luke Walton told Jason Jones of the Athletic that Richaun Holmes was a non-contact participant in Thursday's practice after Holmes' shoulder was sore after practicing in full on Wednesday.

    Holmes is hoping to play in Friday's game but should now be considered questionable until more news surfaces. He appears close to a return but his shoulder injury appears to be lingering. The Kings will evaluate how his shoulder feels on Friday before determining his status.

    Richaun Holmes (right shoulder soreness) practiced with the Kings on Wednesday and an update regarding his availability for Friday's game vs. the Heat will come out soon.

    Holmes returning to practice is a good sign regarding his availability in the near future. The Kings will have a back-to-back vs. the Heat on Friday followed by a Saturday tilt vs. the Spurs. If Holmes is still floating around the waiver wire, he should be scooped up immediately as he has proven to be an extremely reliable option that currently has second-round per game value.
