UPDATE: Jan. 7, 7:34 p.m. — Holmes has been ruled out vs. the Suns.

Sacramento Kings PFs Richaun Holmes and Marvin Bagley are both doubtful to play Tuesday vs. the Phoenix Suns.

Bogdan Bogdanovic will remain out due to his ankle injury. Holmes was injured early in Monday’s win over the Golden State Warriors. He wasn’t able to finish the game, scoring seven points with four boards prior to exiting. Bagley has been plagued by injuries all season, only appearing in nine games so far. He’s dealing with a foot sprain that has caused him to miss the past six games. It doesn’t look like he’ll be ready to play tonight in Phoenix.

Fantasy Basketball Analysis: Sacramento Kings frontcourt

With Holmes and Bagley expected to be out, we should see plenty of Nemanja Bjelica and Harrison Barnes. Barnes would get a slight edge, but both are decent mid-range plays on DraftKings tonight in the $5-6K range. Harry Giles III would be my top value play. He saw 16 minutes last night and filled up the stat sheet with four points, four assists, six rebounds and two steals. Trevor Ariza is also a candidate to get some time at the 4.
