Holmes ended with 27 points (12-13 FG, 3-5 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 33 minutes during Tuesday's 117-92 loss to the Lakers. Holmes scored a season-high 27 points, as the Kings needed a boost of offense with Harrison Barnes (foot), Maurice Harkless (knee) and Marvin Bagley (illness) sidelined. Though the 27 points was a season high, Holmes has been no stranger to 20-point efforts this season, as Tuesday marks his sixth effort with 20-plus. It was also his fifth effort with multiple blocks.
Holmes (illness) is not listed on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's contest against the Lakers. Holmes missed three straight contests due to a bruised right eye and then a non-COVID illness. However, he appears to have cleared both issues and will be available Tuesday. Before the three-game absence, Holmes started every game of the season for the Kings and averaged 14.4 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 blocks across 27.4 minutes per game. It's unclear if the big man will have any restrictions during his return to action.
Holmes (illness) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Grizzlies. This will be the third straight absence for the big man, who was battling a bruised right eye but is now listed on the official injury report with a non-COVID illness. The fact that he's already been ruled out well in advance of Sunday's game is not a great sign, but the Kings are off Monday before beginning their Week 7 schedule Tuesday night against the Lakers.
Holmes (eye) is out Friday against the Lakers. Holmes will sit out a second straight game. Alex Len got the start in his previous absence and figures to do so again.
Holmes (eye) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Lakers. Holmes, who is dealing with a right eye contusion, sat out the Kings' most recent game Wednesday against the Trail Blazers with the injury. Alex Len started in place of Holmes for that contest and would likely do so again if the latter can't gain clearance ahead of Friday's 10:30 p.m. ET tipoff.
