Richaun Holmes will not play in Thursday's matchup against the Lakers.
Holmes injured his hip on Friday and hasn't been able to make it back to game action since. This is the Kings' last seeding game of the season. Holmes showed some flashes of dominance earlier in the year and will be a hot target in next season's drafts.
Richaun Holmes (hip) is out once again Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.
Alex Len got the start for Holmes Sunday and figures to slot into the starting five again on Tuesday. Harry Giles III could also see some extended run in Holmes’ absence.
Kings F/C Richaun Holmes (hip) has been ruled out Sunday vs. the Rockets.
Alex Len started the second half of the last game when Holmes had to leave due to the hip injury, and its likely he’ll get the starting nod Sunday. The Rockets play a lot of small-ball, which could lead to the athletic 7-footer dominating against little to no competition around the basket. At just $3,400 on DraftKings, Len presents a great value play today.
Richaun Holmes scored one point (0-2 FG, 1-22 FT) and grabbed five rebounds in 11 minutes before injuring his hip and leaving in the loss to the Nets.
Holmes left the game in the first quarter and was unable to return. There hasn't been any updates on the injury since but the Kings will get a day of rest before facing off against the Rockets on Sunday. Check back for updated news.
Richaun Holmes put up eight points (3-3 FG, 2-4 FT), 12 rebounds, and one block over 25 minutes of play in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Mavs.
Holmes failed to put up double-digit points for the first time in the Orlando bubble but managed to grab double-digit rebounds. He's still too risky to automatically slot into any fantasy lineups but is worth keeping on your radar.
