G - PHI
Furkan Korkmaz is available to play against the Thunder following his recovery from a strained left adductor.
Korkmaz has been sidelined since late December, so there is no indication of how many minutes he will be available for this contest. With Seth Curry still out, Korkmaz could provide an additional layer of scoring depth to the Sixers' back-court. However, with Tyrese Maxey's rise and a competitive match against the Thunder, it would be best to prepare as if Furkan will have a minimal role in this contest and possibly moving forward. In three games this season, he has averaged 18.3 minutes of playing time, 6.0 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks per game and is shooting a career-low 25.0 percent from the floor and 25.0 percent from beyond the arc. Even though Korkmaz has seen some growth in addressing some of the additional categories of the stat-sheet, he isn’t worth considering in any fantasy format at this time until we get a better sense of whether his role will be meaningful as the Sixers progress through the season.
Furkan Korkmaz suffered a left adductor strain against the Cavaliers, and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Korkmaz is off to a slow start this season, shooting a career-low 25 percent from the floor and beyond the arc. Despite the lull in his production, he has provided the Sixers with some shooting depth in the rotation, with him lookout for both Seth Curry and Shake Milton to get some additional run. Out of the two, Curry would be the most attractive punt play for DFS purposes.
Furkan Korkmaz played 29 minutes off the bench Wednesday, scoring 21 points (5-10 FG, 5-9 3PT, 6-6 FT) with five rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two turnovers.
Korkmaz looked great off the bench Wednesday in a loss to the Raptors. He's now hit eight three-pointers in his last two games and could be playing himself right into the playoff rotation for head coach Brett Brown. The Sixers have one more seeding game Friday against the Rockets, and one could expect Korkmaz to get another opportunity to shine with increased minutes as the starters are likely to sit in that one.
Furkan Korkmaz produced 12 points (3-7 FG, 3-6 3PT, 3/4 FT), three rebounds, and one steal over 21 minutes of play off the bench Monday.
Korkmaz did most of his damage from long range Monday. He's provided fantasy production in spurts for the 76ers this season but has no upside as long as the rest of the team is at full strength.
Furkan Korkmaz produced 17 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3PT, 4-5 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes in Wednesday's 124-106 win over the Pistons.
Korkmaz has scored double figures only twice across five games in March, but has buried at least one three in each contest. He is averaging 9.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.0 steals and 2.0 triples during the month. With Ben Simmons to be re-evaluated in three weeks, Korkmaz will see an expanded role once the NBA season resumes play.
