Holmes (hamstring) will not play Tuesday against Minnesota, Sean Cunningham of ABC 10 Sacramento reports.
Holmes will miss his fourth game in a row while dealing with a right hamstring strain. The team has a back-to-back incoming on Tuesday and Wednesday, so it's possible that he could make a return on the back end. If not, Damian Jones, Hassan Whiteside and Chimezie Metu could all see increased workloads.
Holmes was diagnosed with a strained right hamstring after undergoing an MRI on Wednesday and won't play in Sacramento's next three games, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The 27-year-old was ruled out for Wednesday's matchup with the Wizards, and he also won't travel with the team for its upcoming road trip against the Suns and Mavericks. Holmes could retake the court Tuesday versus Minnesota if he isn't forced to miss any additional time. Damian Jones, Hassan Whiteside and Chimezie Metu should be in the mix at center for the Kings in the meantime.
Holmes (hamstring) is doubtful for Wednesday's action against the Wizards.
Holmes left Monday's game against the Pelicans due to right hamstring tightness, and it will likely keep him out Wednesday. Assuming that's the case, Hassan Whiteside, Damian Jones and Chimezie Metu could all see extra minutes.
Holmes won't return to Monday's contest against the Pelicans due to right hamstring tightness, Jason Jones of The Athletic reports.
Holmes left the game late in the first half and didn't return following halftime after coming down with tightness in his hamstring. Damian Jones started the second half of Monday's matchup in place of Holmes. Although his status remains relatively unknown at the moment, Holmes will likely be tabbed questionable heading into Wednesday's game against the Wizards.
Holmes had 25 points (10-13 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-7 FT), 10 rebounds, an assist, a steal and a block across 34 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Jazz.
Holmes ended as the Kings' second-best scorer behind De'Aaron Fox and was particularly efficient in this game, missing only three shots to post his best scoring output since March 25, when he also scored 25 points against the Warriors. Holmes has scored in double digits in 21 straight contests and has posted 12 double-doubles in that span, so he's entrenched as one of the Kings' top fantasy performers almost on a nightly basis.
Holmes turned in 15 points (5-8 FG, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, two steals, two blocked shots and an assist across 25 minutes in Thursday's 113-101 loss to the Pistons.
Thursday's game was a definite improvement over his lackluster game against the Lakers, but shot volume continues to be the culprit for the center. While his impressive work off the glass does wonders for his stat line, his fantasy totals really pop when he gets more chances to score. He's only taken 25 shots over the past three games, so he needs his backcourt to feed him the ball more often. He also needs an increase in offensive rebounding, as more put-backs could really help with his scoring totals.
Holmes mustered 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-5 FT) and seven rebounds across 24 minutes in Friday's loss against the Lakers.
Holmes has been a double-double machine this season and had recorded four in a row before ending that streak Friday. Holmes has settled as the Kings' starting center and has recorded double-digit points in each of his last 17 contests, so he's still delivering value even when he's not entirely active on the glass.
Holmes tallied 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds and two blocks in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 120-106 loss to the Spurs.
The 27-year-old now has four double-doubles in a row, a span in which he's averaged 17.9 points, 12.9 rebounds and 3.2 blocks while shooting 63.9 percent from the field. Holmes is sitting on career-high averages in points, rebounds, assists and blocks in his sixth NBA season. He should continue receiving heavy minutes the rest of the way for a Kings team only 2.5 games back behind the Spurs for the eighth seed in the Western Conference.
Holmes tallied 23 points (8-11 FG, 7-10 FT), 12 rebounds, three assists, three blocks and one steal in 33 minutes during Monday's 132-115 win over the Spurs.
Monday's performance marked Holmes' third consecutive double-double. It was also his second game of the season with at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. Holmes is in the midst of a career-best season, as he's averaging highs in points (14.2), rebounds (8.9), assists (1.7) and blocks (1.7), along with free-throw percentage (81.7).
Holmes registered 10 points (5-11 FG), 14 rebounds and five blocked shots across 34 minutes Saturday in a 100-98 win over Sacramento.
The big man fell one swat shy of his season high while picking up his second straight double-double and eighth in his past 11 games. Over this stretch, Holmes has posted averages of 17.3 points, 10.9 boards and 2.2 blocks while shooting 61.8 percent from the field and 84.4 percent from the charity stripe. He is quickly establishing himself as one of fantasy's most productive centers.
Holmes posted 25 points (10-14 FG, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocked shots and one assist across 32 minutes in Thursday's 141-119 win over the Warriors.
Holmes was still a King at the trade deadline, which is good news for those who depend on the center's exemplary production. A move for Holmes would have resulted in a temporary pause in output, and it's hard to imagine a better place for Holmes from a fantasy perspective. With Marvin Bagley out, the starting job is Holmes' to lose, and it's unlikely that Hassan Whiteside or the newly-acquired Maurice Harkless will overtake him.
Holmes collected 16 points (7-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two blocks, one assist and one steal in a 110-108 victory over the Hawks on Wednesday.
Holmes continued his strong, consistent production, as he's now scored in double figures and secured at least seven rebounds in 13 of his last 16 games. The center has also been a strong performer on defense as well, recording two blocks and one steal in back-to-back games. Across eight games since the All-Star break, Holmes has averaged 17.9 points, 10.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.9 blocks.
Holmes dropped 17 points (8-9 FG, 1-1 FT), 16 rebounds, three assists, two blocks and one steal in 35 minutes Monday in the victory over the Cavs.
Holmes bounced back after seeing his streak of 17 straight games shooting over 50 percent come to an end on Saturday. Since Marvin Bagley (hand) went down, Holmes is posting averages of 17.5 points, 9.5 rebounds and 1.8 blocks per game on 62.8 percent shooting (four games).
Holmes produced 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 30 minutes in Saturday's 129-105 loss to the Sixers.
Expectations were high for Holmes' production after Marvin Bagley went down with a hand injury, and although he has popped for some exemplary stat lines, he's alternated them with some pretty poor numbers, especially when you consider the increased opportunity. Bagley is going to be out for a month, so Holmes will have every chance to build up a more consistent floor. Over his last five games, he's averaging 18.0 points, 9.8 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 2.0 blocks.
Holmes finished with 25 points (7-11 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 10-12 FT), 11 boards, three blocks, two assists and two steals in 32 minutes of a 107-96 win against Boston on Friday.
Holmes continued his recent run of good play, nabbing his fifth double-double in his last six games. The 27-year-old is in the midst of his best season, currently holding personal highs across most stat categories. He'll face the 76ers on Saturday.
Holmes scored 18 points (8-13 FG, 2-2FT) to go along with seven rebounds and two blocks across 27 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Wizards.
Holmes picked up three fouls by halftime, which limited him to only 3:41 of playing time in the second quarter. As a result, he failed to top 30 minutes for the first time in his last seven games. Even so, Holmes scored well and tallied multiple blocks for the fourth time in his last eight contests.
Holmes totaled 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 FT), 15 rebounds, six assists, four blocks and two steals over 41 minutes during Monday's loss to the Hornets.

Holmes has three double-doubles in his last three games entering Monday's contest at Charlotte.
Holmes finished out the first half of the season with 12 points, 11 rebounds, two steals and two blocks against the Blazers, and he's picked up where he left off. In Thursday's win against Houston, Holmes posted 20 points and 11 boards, and he followed up with another 20-point performance -- adding 12 rebounds -- Saturday night at Atlanta. Dating back to Feb. 26, Holmes is averaging 16.7 points, 11.3 rebounds and 1.3 blocks over his last six games.

He is also averaging 13.0 points and 8.3 boards per contest, both career highs.
