Joel Embiid (knee) will start Wednesday vs. Suns

Sixers C Joel Embiid (knee) will play and start Wednesday vs. the Suns.

Fantasy Impact

Embiid will play in this one while Ben Simmons, Tobias Harris, and Seth Curry all sit. He’ll be asked to shoulder the load against a sub-par defender in Deandre Ayton, so look for the Sixers big man to have himself a game.

Joel Embiid (knee) questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Suns

Sixer's C Joel Embiid is questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Suns due to left knee recovery.

Fantasy Impact

There isn't anything to indicate that Embiid's health is at risk, as he is listed as questionable for "left knee recovery". If anything, it seems like the Sixers could sit Embiid on the back end of a back-to-back tonight against Phoenix. If he's out, more minutes would be available for Dwight Howard and Mike Scott.

Joel Embiid has third consecutive double-double in loss to the Warriors

Joel Embiid totaled 28 points (8-21 FG, 1-3 3PT, 11-14T), thirteen rebounds, eight assists, one block, and one steal in 32 minutes in the Sixers' 107-96 loss to the Warriors on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Embiid had his third consecutive double-double in the Sixers' loss to the Warriors, missing his first triple-double of the year by two assists. His double-double "headlined" by his 28.0 points was his fifth consecutive effort, scoring 25.0 points or more. Embiid is playing at another level and will need to continue ramping up as the playoffs quickly approach. He is a must-start fantasy play anytime the Sixers are on the slate.

Fantasy Impact

His latest performance marked another excellent scoring effort and marked his third consecutive game with at least 35.0 points. Embiid is having a masterful year and is making an exceptional case for his MVP candidacy. He is, without a doubt, a must-start asset in all fantasy formats.
