Top Richaun Holmes News

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Shines in place of Sabonis

    Holmes ended Wednesday's 116-111 win over the Lakers with 16 points (7-7 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds and one assist across 31 minutes.

    Holmes moved into the starting unit for the first time Wednesday after Domantas Sabonis was ruled out due to a non-COVID illness, and the former came through with his best game of the campaign. Holmes logged season highs in both scoring and rebounding en route to his first double-double since December of 2021, and he finished with a perfect shooting effort from both the field and the charity stripe. Sabonis' absence doesn't figure to be a lengthy one, so Holmes is only a short-term streamer in fantasy.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Starting Wednesday

    Holmes will receive the starting nod for Wednesday's game against the Lakers, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Holmes will earn his first start of the season Wednesday with Domantas Sabonis sidelined due to a non-COVID illness. Per 36 minutes, Holmes has averaged 11.5 points, 8.1 rebounds and 1.1 blocks and is worth a speculative look as a streaming option.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Records full practice

    Holmes (illness) practiced in full capacity Friday, but his status remains up in the air ahead of the Kings' matchup with the Wizards on Friday night, Brenden Nunes of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Holmes was added to the injury report Thursday with a non-COVID illness but was able to participate in Friday morning's practice. However, Holmes has been a fringe rotation piece for Sacramento, so his potential availability would likely have minimal fantasy impact.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Upgraded to available

    Holmes (illness) is available for Friday's game against the Wizards, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Holmes has been cleared for Friday's game after initially being listed as questionable with an illness. However, the backup big man didn't appear in either of the Kings' previous two games despite being healthy, so it's unclear if he'll crack the rotation against Washington.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Handed questionable tag

    Holmes is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Wizards due to a non-COVID illness, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Holmes will likely see how he feels during morning shootaround and potentially pregame warmups before a decision on his availability for Friday is made. He's been struggling to see playing time of late due to his spot in the rotation, so it wouldn't impact Sacramento's game plan much if he's unable to go.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Minimal results Wednesday

    Holmes chipped in two points (1-2 FG) across three minutes during Wednesday's 124-123 victory over the Raptors.

    Holmes hasn't been part of the Kings' rotation recently, and he's appeared in just three of the team's last six games. He's made just seven appearances since Nov. 15 and has averaged 2.3 points in 4.9 minutes per game during that time.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Not included in injury report

    Holmes (illness) is off the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Pistons.

    Holmes missed Thursday's game against the Spurs due to a non-COVID-related illness, but he was spotted in practice Saturday and looks to be back to full health. Even though he'll suit up Sunday, Holmes may find himself outside of the rotation, as Chimezie Metu had supplanted him as the Kings' backup center before Holmes sat out Thursday.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Returns to practice

    Holmes (illness) participated in Saturday's practice after missing the Kings' most recent contest, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Holmes has not been a part of Sacramento's nightly rotation for the last couple of weeks in competitive games, but after missing Thursday's game due to a non-COVID illness, it seems he'll be available for Sunday's matchup against the Pistons. Whether he regains a spot in the rotation upon his return is unclear but unless an injury opens up a larger role for him, Holmes can be ignored in nearly all fantasy formats.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Out Thursday

    Holmes will miss Thursday's game against the Spurs due to a non-COVID illness, Deuce Mason of NBC Sports California reports.

    Holmes pops up on the injury report as out for Thursday's contest due to an illness. However, he holds a minor role for Sacramento as a backup center, averaging 4.1 points in 12.0 minutes per game. Chimezie Metu is likely to receive slightly increased playing time Thursday, and Holmes' next chance to play will be Sunday against the Pistons.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Not in rotation Monday

    Holmes did not see the court during Monday's 116-113 loss to the Warriors.

    Holmes saw a season-low five minutes during Saturday's win over the Magic, which was followed by a DNP-CD against the Warriors. The center is stuck behind Domantas Sabonis, while Chimezie Metu seems to have more trust with the coaching staff at this point. Adding insult to injury, Holmes' 9.8 percent usage rate is the lowest of his career, and he has one of the worst on-off court numbers in the NBA, with the Kings being 21.3 points worse per 100 possessions when he's on the floor.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Scores just two points

    Holmes racked up two points (1-1 FG) over 12 minutes during Monday's 115-108 win over the Hornets.

    Holmes continues to garner a minor role behind Domantas Sabonis and has even started ceding minutes to other reserve bigs. Aside from a 15-point, five-rebound performance against the Warriors, Holmes has struggled to produce any noteworthy fantasy production through six games.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Empty minutes Thursday

    Holmes produced one rebound in eight minutes during Thursday's 125-110 loss to the Grizzlies.

    Coming off a season-high 15 points against the Warriors, Holmes logged a season-low eight minutes in this one and failed to get on the scoreboard for the first time in 2022-23. He picked up three fouls in his eight minutes, which may explain why he was on the floor for such a short span. He's clearly behind Domantas Sabonis in the pecking order at center and ceded some additional minutes to Chimezie Metu on Thursday, so things are trending in the wrong direction.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Strong scoring effort

    Holmes racked up 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-4 FT), five rebounds and one steal over 16 minutes during Sunday's 130-125 loss to the Warriors.

    Holmes had attempted just three field goals through 28 minutes across two contests prior to Sunday's outburst. The bench unit featuring Holmes, Malik Monk and Keegan Murray marked a huge reason Sacramento cut the final deficit to five after trailing by 18 at halftime. That being said, it's unclear if Holmes' performance will unlock additional usage.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Logs 13 minutes in win

    Holmes (illness) recorded seven points (2-4 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist across 13 minutes in Friday's 133-86 exhibition victory over the Lakers.

    Holmes returned from an illness for this contest, so it appears his health is back to par as the regular season approaches. The big man is expected to provide depth in the Kings' frontcourt this season.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Returns to practice Thursday

    Holmes (illness) returned to practice Thursday, James Ham of ESPN 1320 Sacramento reports.

    Holmes has been dealing with an illness for a week, but it's encouraging that he was able to take part in practice Thursday. It's not yet clear whether he faced any limitations during Thursday's practice session, and his status for Friday's preseason finale against the Lakers remains to be seen. Either way, it won't be surprising to see him available for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Trail Blazers.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Won't play Wednesday

    Holmes (illness) won't play in Wednesday's preseason game against Phoenix, Mark Medina of NBA.com reports.

    Holmes is currently dealing with a non-COVID illness and will not be available in the team's preseason contest. It seems as though a bug has hit the Kings, as Keegan Murray is also out due to a non-COVID illness. He has one more shot to suit up in the preseason Friday.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Doesn't feel well after practice

    Holmes (illness) went through practice Tuesday but didn't feel well toward the end, and his status for Wednesday's preseason game against the Suns remains unclear, Deuce Mason of NBC Sports California reports.

    Holmes has been sidelined for about a week due to a non-COVID illness, but he returned to practice Tuesday, though it doesn't sound like the session went smoothly. If the talented big man doesn't travel with the team to Phoenix, he'll set his sights on playing Friday's preseason finale against the Lakers.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Won't play Sunday

    Holmes (illness) won't be available for Sunday's preseason game against the Trail Blazers, Brenden Nunes of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    As expected, Holmes, who was listed as doubtful, will be sidelined due to an illness. There's no indication that he'll miss any regular-season action, but Alex Len, Chimezie Metu and Trey Lyles figure to see expanded roles Sunday.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Doubtful Sunday

    Holmes (illness) missed Saturday's practice and is doubtful for Sunday's exhibition against the Trail Blazers, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    There's no indication Holmes will miss regular-season time. Alex Len, Chimezie Metu and Trey Lyles could see expanded minutes Sunday.

  • Kings' Richaun Holmes: Misses practice Thursday

    Kings coach Mike Brown said Holmes missed practice Thursday while dealing with a stomach ailment, Jason Anderson of The Sacramento Bee reports.

    Holmes is expected to be the Kings' backup center behind Domantas Sabonis this season. The veteran big man should not miss any regular season time with this stomach ailment, but will be worth monitoring for Sunday's preseason game versus Portland.
