Richaun Holmes scored 11 points with two rebounds and five fouls in 16 minutes off the bench during a 122-97 loss to the Thunder on Wednesday. It's a big-time letdown for Holmes after blowing up for 24 points and 14 boards on Monday. Holmes did get in foul trouble during this game and Shawn Long was in the mix for 15 minutes due to some garbage time. Jahlil Okafor also got the start today, but he probably won't be holding that job for very long. Holmes should remain owned in all leagues.

Richaun Holmes will come off the bench on Wednesday with Jahlil Okafor (knee) starting. Holmes won't approach the 42 minutes he saw on Tuesday, but he should still get more than enough run to benefit fantasy owners.

Holmes scored 24 points (11-19 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with 14 rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 42 minutes in Monday's 112-109 overtime loss to the Magic.

Richaun Holmes was plugged into the starting lineup Tuesday at Orlando and he delivered, finishing with 24 points and a career-high 14 rebounds in 42 minutes. Holmes hit 11 of his 19 field goal tries while also adding four assists with a steal and a blocked shot. He certainly responded well to his return to the starting five and he will likely remain there until Jahlil Okafor (knee) is ready to return. Since there is no real reason to rush Okafor back it could be an extended period of starting for Holmes which is great news for his short-term fantasy appeal.

Richaun Holmes is starting vs. the Magic on Monday. Jahlil Okafor (knee) is out and could miss additional time, but Holmes has been worth owning for weeks. He's averaging 12.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.6 triples in March, so he is clearly worth deploying in standard leagues. Shawn Long will back him up.

Richaun Holmes said that he always plays with a chip on his shoulder. "I've been overlooked for so long that it's always been that," Holmes said. "There's always been somebody that's bigger, somebody that's supposedly better. It's always been that way." Holmes opened the season as the fourth-string center, but he has a legitimate chance to start the rest of the way -- Jahlil Okafor left Sunday's game with right knee soreness. Coach Brett Brown loves Holmes and called him a "modern-day player," so the 76ers keep dropping hints that he could open the 2017-18 season as the primary backup behind Joel Embiid. With averages of 12.9 points, 6.3 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.1 steals and 0.6 triples in March, Holmes is a must-start player vs. the Magic on Monday.

Richaun Holmes scored eight points with seven rebounds, five assists, four blocks and two steals in 29 minutes against the Celtics on Sunday. Those five assists are a career high and he did much more work on the ball today. Jahlil Okafor (knee) did not play in the second half of this game with his troublesome knee injury. Holmes has already outplayed Jah in a big way with his coach saying he likes his speed, bounce, called him a "modern-day player" and said he "could be a keeper." Holmes has absolutely been a keeper in his last five, averaging 14.6 points, 7.2 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.4 blocks, 1.4 steals and 0.8 treys on 66.0 percent from the field. He needs to be owned everywhere in fantasy.
