The NBA is being especially careful during their restart in Orlando following an over four-month hiatus due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The location of the NBA “bubble” is significant as Florida is currently the epicenter of the United States’ health crisis.
Holmes, the 37th pick in the 2015 Draft, has been having a career-best season for the Kings this season, posting 12.8 points and 8.3 rebounds per game in 39 appearances. The Kings currently sit 11th in the Western Conference standings with a record of 28-36 and will be looking to make a run at the eighth seed when the regular season resumes on July 30th.
