Sharks coach Atiba Lyons has told The Star that point guard BJ Holmes will be back in Sheffield in time for the club’s next match against London Lions at the EIS on January 31.
Holmes has returned to America and missed Sharks BBL Trophy victory at Reading Rockets on Sunday. The Trophy quarter-final draw has handed Sharks a long journey to Plymouth Raiders.
