That weekend slate was something. For all the injuries we’ve had this season, it’s been exciting watching many of these big-name players return. It feels like an All-Star group of players has returned to action over the last week. That will cause some chaos for the first week with all of these superstars swallowing up so much usage, and it’ll also be imperative to keep an eye on the injury report for the next few days!

Injury Report

Core Plays

Joel Embiid (PF/C – PHI): $11,400 DraftKings, $11,600 FanDuel
Embiid has been the MVP runner-up in back-to-back years, and it’s easy to understand why. The big man is averaging over 56 DraftKings points per game, scoring at least 56 DK points in five of his last six games. He’s also flirting with a 70-point average in that span and couldn’t ask for a better matchup here. Houston sits 25th in points allowed and 28th in defensive efficiency.
