Joel Embiid hands out six helpers in win

Joel Embiid provided 22 points (8-18 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, two steals and a block across 31 minutes in the 76ers’ 97-92 win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Embiid posted his 15th double-double of the season while matching a season-high in assists. His scoring and rebounding numbers have been down as of late, but he's made up for that with solid passing. In the month of December, Embiid is averaging 18.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists.

Joel Embiid (hip) will not play on Saturday

Joel Embiid has been ruled out for Saturday's game versus the Cleveland Cavaliers due to a left hip contusion. It's a back-to-back set for the 76ers so it's not surprising to see the 76ers sit Embiid in this game against the Cavaliers. Kyle O'Quinn will start in his place.

Fantasy Impact

With Embiid out, Ben Simmons, Al Horford, and Tobias Harris will be leading the way on the offensive end with O'Quinn and Mike Scott getting a solid bump in minutes and value. Both are cheap value plays with only four games on Saturday night.

Joel Embiid monstrous on boards

Joel Embiid went for 26 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 11-14 FT), 21 rebounds, one assist and a block over 35 minutes in the 76ers' 119-113 loss to the Wizards on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact

Embiid was an absolute monster in the paint Thursday, going for the second-highest rebounding total of his career and his highest of the 2019-20 campaign. The 21 boards came at the expense of the Thomas Bryant-less Wizards, who went small with Mo Wagner and rookie Rui Hachimura in the frontcourt. Neither were a match for the All-NBA center. Embiid's averages are down across most statistical categories this season, but he's still capable of detonating for massive lines like this at any time.

Joel Embiid scores 16 in win over Jazz

Joel Embiid had 16 points (5-13 fg, 1-2 3pt, 5-6 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one blocked shot in Monday's win over the Jazz.

Fantasy Impact

Embiid is averaging 27 points since his 0 point output against the Raptors on November 25. While his overall numbers are a bit below last season, Embiid should improve those numbers as the season continues and is still among the top big men in the NBA.

Joel Embiid scores game-high 32 points in victory over Pacers

Joel Embiid scored a game-high 32 points (8-15 FG, 15-15 FT, 1-2 3PT), had 11 rebounds, four assists, two steals, and one block in 33 minutes of action during Saturday night’s 119-116 home victory over the Pacers.

Fantasy Impact

Make that twelve double-doubles on the season now for Embiid, who continues to dominate in all facets. Continue to roll Embiid out there with confidence in all formats moving forward.
