Kyle O'Quinn is ineligible to play against the Spurs, due to him missing his coronavirus test this past Sunday. Instead, he will test today and will prepare to rejoin the team upon a negative result.
Quinn offers additional depth in the front-court; however, his conservative play on offense limits his fantasy appeal. With him being out today, it wouldn't be a surprise to see increased time for Matisse Thybulle at the three and Al Horford at the five, thus possibly increasing their fantasy appeal. Quinn doesn't warrant any consideration in any format and is a natural fade at this time.
Kyle O'Quinn managed six points (2-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four blocks, two rebounds and one assist across 12 minutes in Wednesday's 108-94 loss to the Cavaliers.
Joel Embiid exited the first quarter of Wednesday's loss with a left shoulder sprain, opening the door for O'Quinn to log double-digit minutes for the first time since December 7th. He made the most of his playing time, swatting a season-high four shots. Embiid's status for Thursday's game against the Knicks is up in the air. If Embiid is ruled out for a significant period of time, O'Quinn can be used as a streamer and is worth adding in deep-league formats.

O’Quinn has been ruled out for Thursday’s game against the Bucks due to personal reasons. His next chance to return will be Friday against the Grizzlies.
Kyle O’Quinn went for four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks over 26 minutes in the 76ers’ 115-97 loss to the Pacers on Tuesday.
O'Quinn garnered his first start of the season in place of Joel Embiid and filled the stat sheet thanks to some quality work on the glass, on defense and as a facilitator. On the season, O'Quinn has logged just 9.8 minutes per contest, and his big performance Tuesday is merely an outlier due to the spot start.
Kyle O’Quinn scored 10 points (5-10 FG, 0-1 3 PT), had 11 rebounds, four blocks, and three assists in 27 minutes of action during a 141-94 blowout win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Saturday night.
O’Quinn had his first double-double of the season and played a solid amount of minutes, as he spent time at center filling in for the injured Joel Embiid (hip). Nevertheless, don’t be fooled by the uptick in playing time, as O’Quinn isn’t currently on the fantasy radar and should be left on waiver wires in season-long leagues. O’Quinn may have some appeal in DFS contests while Embiid remains on the shelf.
