In a lineup adjustment for Saturday’s game against the Bucks, Richaun Holmes will be coming off the bench, while Maxi Kleber takes his place in the starting lineup. Grant Afseth of SI.com reported the change, indicating that Holmes, who filled in for Dereck Lively (nose) in the previous game, will see reduced minutes from the bench.
Holmes stepped into the starting lineup in the absence of Lively and logged 30 minutes in the last game. However, with Lively presumably returning, Holmes will be relegated to a reserve role for this matchup against the Bucks. Despite coming off the bench, Holmes is expected to still receive significant playing time, providing depth and energy to the team.
The decision to start Kleber suggests a strategic adjustment by the coaching staff, possibly aimed at matchup considerations or tactical changes. While Holmes may not start, his contributions off the bench will be crucial for the team’s success in the game against a formidable opponent like the Bucks.
This lineup shuffle adds an element of intrigue to the game and highlights the versatility of the team’s roster. Fans can anticipate how Holmes will impact the game coming off the bench and how Kleber will fare in his new starting role.
