Joel Embiid drops monster double-double in Saturday's loss

Joel Embiid recorded a team-high in points, rebounds, and blocks with 41 points (15-23 FG, 1-5 3PT, 10-12 FT), 21 rebounds, and three blocks to go along with four assists and a steal in 34 minutes during Saturday's 127-121 loss to the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact

The Pacers smallball lineup had no answer for Embiid's physical dominance as he seemingly scored at the rim and snared rebounds at will. Where Embiid prefers to score in the paint, Pacers center Myles Turner isn't built to bang like that. Embiid scored 32 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in their November matchup and appears to be a solid fantasy play any time he's going against the Pacers. The Sixers center went to the locker room with about seven minutes left in the game and came back shortly after with what appeared to be nothing serious but should be noted due to his injury history.

Joel Embiid (calf) not listed on injury report versus Pacers

Sixers C Joel Embiid (calf tightness) is no longer listed on the injury report ahead of Saturday's contest against the Indiana Pacers.

Fantasy Impact

Embiid sat out the Sixers' previous scrimmage due to calf tightness, and it looks like Embiid is ready to see his regular minutes in a pivotal seeding game for both teams. Embiid's injury history is evident, but with Domantas Sabonis out, Embiid should be able to own the paint against the Pacers. He may come at a high cost to DFS owners, but it'll be worth it considering Embiid's ability to rack up points, rebounds, and blocks.
