Richaun Holmes said he doesn't think he needs surgery on his fractured left wrist. He also said he's going to try and beat his next evaluation which is in three weeks, but maybe that's a bit too ambitious. We should have a better idea of his timetable soon, but Jahlil Okafor and Amir Johnson will both be in the mix at center behind Joel Embiid while Holmes is out. Dario Saric is an option as well.

Richaun Holmes has been diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture in the radial bone of his left wrist. This is awful timing with the regular season just 10 days away. The 76ers haven't provided a timetable, but Holmes will be re-evaluated in three weeks which rules him out for at least the first couple weeks of the season. If your league has an I.R. spot, it makes sense to stash Holmes as he was expected to be the backup center behind Joel Embiid before this injury. In the meantime, Jahlil Okafor will get a chance to showcase himself and Dario Saric and Amir Johnson may get a bump as well.

Richaun Holmes scored five points with two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 12 minutes against the Celtics on Friday. He did suffer what looked like a minor left wrist injury because Aron Baynes fouled him very hard. For now, he looks like he's OK and he should be ready for the weekend. Meanwhile, he is outplaying Jahlil Okafor and Holmes should still be considered as the No. 2 center on this roster. He's one of the best fantasy handcuffs to Joel Embiid.

Richaun Holmes said he wants to be in the best shape of his life entering the 2017-18 season. He's coming off a breakout season in Philly and really shined when Joel Embiid (knee) went down, averaging 13.6 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 1.2 blocks, 1.0 steals and 0.7 3-pointers on 58.1 percent shooting after the All-Star break. As for his offseason plans, Holmes said he wants to add strength, become a better pick-and-roll defender and to keep working on his perimeter shooting -- he shot 35.1 percent from deep last season, so he has a good foundation to build on. 76ers coach Brett Brown called Holmes a "lightning-in-the-bottle" player and he should be the favorite to back up Embiid in 2017-18. If you draft The Process, handcuffing him with Holmes makes too much sense.

I'm not sure people understand just how huge a wrist injury is for Richaun Holmes. His game is constantly entirely reliant on both wrists.
I miss Richaun Holmes.
