Richaun Holmes (gastroenteritis) will not suit up for Thursday's game in Boston. This will be Holmes second straight game on the sidelines due to the stomach bug, which will translate to more minutes for Trevor Booker and Amir Johnson. Holmes is only worth owning in deep leagues as a Joel Embiid-handcuff.

Holmes (illness) will not play during Thursday's contest against the Celtics, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Holmes is dealing with gastroenteritis, which is serious enough for him to miss a second straight contest. In his stead, Amir Johnson, Trevor Booker and Dario Saric are all candidates to see extra run.

Holmes will not play Monday against Toronto due to an illness, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philly reports. The backup center will be unavailable for Monday's early tip-off after coming down with an illness over the weekend. As a result, expect reserve big men Amir Johnson and Trevor Booker to each pick up a few extra minutes off the bench. Holmes played 17 minutes in Thursday's loss to Boston in London and played 20 minutes in the team's previous contest against the Pistons on Jan. 5.

Richaun Holmes will not play on Monday vs. the Raptors due to an illness. Amir Johnson missed Philly's last game with an illness, but he's currently questionable. If Johnson is unable to back up Joel Embiid, Trevor Booker and Dario Saric might see some time at the five. Holmes hasn't been playing much lately and is just a handcuff for Embiid's owners.

Richaun Holmes picked up another DNP-CD on Sunday. Holmes looked good in 19 minutes on Saturday, but couldn't crack the rotation vs. Phoenix tonight -- Amir Johnson (16 minutes) and Trevor Booker (15 minutes) soaked up the backup frontcourt minutes. Joel Embiid did injure his right hand tonight but X-rays were negative and it sounds like a sprain -- if he is forced to miss Wednesday's game vs. the Spurs, Holmes will instantly be an appealing streaming and DFS play.

Richaun Holmes scored 14 points with three rebounds, three assists and one block in 19 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday. Despite fouling out, Holmes gave the 76ers a nice spark in the fourth quarter. He's playing somewhat well and it'll be interesting to see if coach Brett Brown matches him up with Alex Len on Sunday.

Richaun Holmes only played in garbage time with three rebounds, one assist and one turnover in four minutes against the Raptors on Saturday. Maybe Amir Johnson was ahead of him because it was against one of his former teams, but Holmes has been the third big more often than not when Joel Embiid is a go. He's still worth a stash in some leagues, especially with Embiid having health issues right now.

Holmes provided 15 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 27 minutes during a 114-109 loss to the Raptors on Thursday. Holmes matched a season high with 15 points in the narrow loss before he fouled out. He benefited a bit from Joel Embiid's (back) absence, but he has still been mostly consistent recently, as he's scored in double figures in six of the last eight games. Holmes has also had at least six boards in seven games during that same stretch.

Richaun Holmes came off the bench to hit 7-of-12 shots for 15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block before fouling out of Thursday's loss to the Raptors. He played very well despite not getting the start, as the Sixers went with Amir Johnson against his former team, as Joel Embiid (back) watched in street clothes for the third straight game. Holmes, and not Johnson, is who you want to roll with any time Embiid is out, whether he's starting or coming off the bench. Holmes is averaging 11 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in his last three games with Embiid sidelined, making him a nice handcuff to the oft injured big man, as well as a DFS option when Embiid is out. Embiid is iffy for Saturday in a rematch with the Raptors, but should be back for Christmas Day's matchup with the Knicks.

Holmes had four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), six rebounds, two assists, and two blocks in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 101-95 loss to the Kings. Holmes continues to see more playing time than fellow backup Amir Johnson, who started in place of Joel Embiid (rest, back) for the second consecutive night. Over the last five games (two of which Embiid has played), Holmes is averaging 9.8 points (on 57.5 percent shooting), 7.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.0 block, and 0.6 steals in 23.2 minutes per night. Embiid will continue to be rested regularly throughout the season, and Holmes appears to be among those who'll benefit most from that.
