F - PHI
Tobias Harris addressed his taking on an active role in organizing Zoom calls, group texts, saying, “I looked at it like, if we’re being honest, we didn’t have the best chemistry through the year with everything going on. Just use the time to build on that and grow together through the whole pandemic.”
Harris’ facilitation of virtual team engagements should bode well for the Sixers as they prepare for the continuation of the season. His identification of compromised team chemistry provided him an opportunity to not only support the team but position himself as a leader on a squad looking to establish a more cohesive identity. Since joining the Sixers, Harris has been a significant source of production. This year he has played in 65 contests and has averaged 19.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.2 assists, .8 steals, and .5 blocks. The camaraderie he was able to establish during these unprecedented times should help with the transition and preparation of the team while in the bubble, but more importantly, solidify the trust he has built with his teammates. His leadership off the court could open more in-game opportunities for Harris to help facilitate while on the floor leading to a higher level of production for the eight-year pro. His high-floor and high-ceiling make him a solid fantasy play in all formats.
Tobias Harris compiled 15 points (5-14 FG, 1-7 3PT, 4-4 FT) seven rebounds and five assists across 29 minutes in Wednesday's 124-106 win over the Pistons.
Harris continues to produce, scoring at least 24 points in three of his last five contests. He is averaging 22.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists and 2.2 triples across five games during the month of March. With Ben Simmons to be re-evaluated in three weeks, Harris is the secondary offensive option behind star center Joel Embiid. Harris will look to keep things rolling when the NBA resumes play.
Tobias Harris scored 24 points (10-23 FG, 1-5 3PT, 3-3 FT), with four rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 34 minutes in Saturday night’s disappointing loss to the Warriors.
Harris scored a team-high 24 points in this one, but didn’t provide a plethora of other stats to go with the scoring. The Sixers blew a lead late, and were outscored in the 4th quarter 36-24 on their way to a bad 118-114 loss to the Steph Curry-less Warriors. Philadelphia went 1-3 on their road trip out West, and don’t play again until Wednesday vs. Detroit, so hopefully the team can regroup and Tobias can help them get back on track against one of his former teams as they look to secure home-court advantage for at least the first round of the playoffs. As long as Joel Embiid (shoulder) and Ben Simmons (back) remain out, it’ll be Harris and Al Horford shouldering most of the offensive load for Philadelphia.
Tobias Harris scored 28 points (11-22 FG, 4-6 3 PT, 2-3 FT, grabbed 14 rebounds, dished out three assists, and blocked one shot across 36 minutes in Thursday night’s 125-108 win over the Kings.
Harris continues to see All-Star level usage and production while being the lead guy for the 76ers while Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons recover from their injuries. Harris hasn’t missed a single game all year for Philadelphia, and in those 63 games, is averaging 19.4 points, 6.8 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 0.8 steals, and 0.6 blocks, and only 1.5 turnovers in 34.5 minutes per game. Harris is an absolute stud with the other All-Stars off the court, however he’s almost just as good of a fantasy asset even with those guys playing. Ride Harris right into the fantasy playoffs this season and reap the rewards.
Tobias Harris totaled 25 points (11-21 FG, 3-7 3PT, 0-1 FT), four rebounds, four assists, and one steal over 40 minutes of play Sunday.
Harris is one of the few 76er starters that aren't currently injured. He should see a big usage bump in the short-term and is a must-start fantasy asset. His next game comes Tuesday against the Lakers.
