Sheffield Sharks have received a boost ahead of Friday’s match at home against Cheshire Phoenix with the return from injury of point guard BJ Holmes.

The American has been out of action with a hand injury since before Christmas but The Star understands he will be available for the Cheshire game at the English Institute of Sport (7.30pm).

Sharks badly missed Holmes in last Friday’s home defeat against Leeds Force but had performed well in his absence with victories before Christmas against Durham Wildcats and Glasgow Rocks and between Christmas and the New Year at Surrey United and London Lions.

Sheffield currently sit sixth in the BBL Championship and can close the gap on fourth placed Cheshire with victory on Friday.
