Holmes compiled 19 points (7-9 FG, 5-7 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and one steal in 25 minutes during Monday's 123-119 loss to the Clippers.
Holmes scored 19 points in Monday's loss, contributing across the board in another solid performance. Holmes has been a nice surprise for the Suns in what has been an otherwise terrible season. The playing time limits his ceiling but he has shown he can put up standard league value in only 20 minutes per night. The Suns just signed Eric Moreland who played much like Holmes and it remains to be seen whether this impacts the value of both Holmes and DeAndre Ayton.
Holmes produced nine points (4-5 FG, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, and one assist in 20 minutes during Thursday's 108-86 loss to Portland.
Holmes moved into the starting lineup Thursday, replacing DeAndre Ayton who was struggling with an illness. Despite the promotion, Holmes still managed just 20 minutes of playing time. Despite the obvious upside, Holmes' ceiling is limited and his fantasy value is limited to deeper formats at this stage.
Holmes is in the starting lineup for Thursday's game against Portland, Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic reports.
It was initially reported that Deandre Ayton would get the nod at center, although the Suns have made a last-minute change to the starting lineup with Ayton feeling under the weather. Through 23 games this season, Holmes is averaging 6.1 points along with 4.5 rebounds over 13.5 minutes per contest.
Holmes finished with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT), 10 rebounds, and three assists in 22 minutes during Tuesday's 122-105 loss to Sacramento.
Holmes continues to play well for the Suns, recording his second double-double of the season despite the Suns getting thumped. Holmes has now scored in double-digits in seven of his last nine games while playing just 18 minutes per night. He has seen that playing time increase to 22.5 minutes across his last two games and he is certainly trending in the right direction. DeAndre Ayton is locked in as the starter but has looked terrible on the defensive end. Holmes offers upside on both ends of the floor and despite the limited ceiling, he is worth keeping an eye on to see what happens over the coming weeks.
Holmes scored 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-1 FT) while adding four blocks, three steals and a rebound in 23 minutes off the bench during Sunday's 120-96 loss to the Lakers.
The 15 points actually led the Suns on the afternoon, as their starting five couldn't get anything going on offense after the first quarter. Holmes has been a beast defensively in recent weeks, recording multiple blocks in seven of his last 10 games while averaging 9.4 points, 4.9 boards, 1.8 blocks and 1.1 steals over that stretch in only 17.3 minutes a game. With rookie Deandre Ayton commanding significant court time at center to aid his development for the rebuilding franchise, though, it will be tough for Holmes to earn a bigger role regardless of his per-36 production.
