Holmes to play against Clippers, Barnes might

Sacramento Kings head coach Luke Walton revealed on Sunday morning that center Richaun Holmes would see action Monday afternoon when the Kings take on the Los Angeles Clippers in their final tune-up before the NBA restart kicks off for real.

Holmes was sidelined for 10 days after being caught leaving the perimeter of the Orlando bubble to get some chicken wings. He has been practicing with the team for the past few days and should provide some much-needed size down low for the Kings who have been rotating Harry Giles and Nemanja Bjelica at the 5 spot.

Harrison Barnes may also see some court action after a lengthy quarantine back in Sacramento. He has participated in just one practice but has stayed in shape during his layoff as he never developed any symptoms of the virus during his isolation from the team according to Walton.

Center Alex Len is still working himself back into shape and is unlikely to see action on Monday but is expected to participate in the 8-game restart.
