James Harden has officially declined his $47.3 million player option to become an unrestricted free agent. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: It would be a shock if Harden left Philadelphia after everything that went into getting him there. Most speculate that this move is more about creating cap flexibility to put a better roster around the star duo of Joel Embiid and Harden.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski, the 76ers have traded Danny Green and the 23rd pick in the draft to the Grizzlies for De'Anthony Melton.

Fantasy Impact: Green and his $10 million contract for 2022-2023 will head to Memphis in exchange for De'Anthony Melton. After several injuries and poor play this season, the 76ers have decided to go younger at the cost of the 23rd pick in the draft. It's unclear if the Grizzlies plan on waiving the veteran shooting guard at this time.

Matrise Thybulle is a trade candidate and is being shopped by the Philadelphia 76ers. (Source: Timothy Rapp)

Fantasy Impact: Thybulle has been in Philly for years now, but his tenure could soon be reaching the end, as the Sixers may be looking to move off of the star defender. The team has been rumored to want to pursue many big names in free agency, but they will need to clear some cap space if they want to do that, which could leave Thybulle as a cap casualty. This is a situation worth monitoring this off-season for fantasy managers.

Sixers C Joel Embiid underwent successful surgeries on Monday to repair injuries in his right thumb and his left finger as reported by ESPN’s Tim Bontemps. (Source: Tim Bontemps on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Embiid had surgeries to repair the sprained right thumb he injured in the playoffs as well as an injury in his left index finger. Neither injury should have any impact on his performance next season and the procedures should lead to improvement as he once again attempts to bring home an MVP and/or NBA Title. Embiid is expected to be ready for training camp.

Isaiah Joe is officially considered questionable for Sunday's Game 4 against the Heat as per the official NBA Injury Report. (Source: NBA Injury Report )

Fantasy Impact: Isaiah Joe's questionable tag is new and given that he was a DNP-CD in Game 3 it appears Joe must suffered the ankle sprain at pregame/in-game warmups or at practice. Regardless, Joe has played 5 minutes, 1 minute and zero minutes in Games 1-3 respectively, not scored single point and only recorded a single rebound. Barring a backcourt injury for Philly, best to look almost anywhere else but Joe for DFS lineups, even as a low cost flyer.

Tobias Harris shot 8-for-13 from the field on his way to 18 points versus the Pacers on Saturday. He added four rebounds and a block in the 133-120 win.

Fantasy Impact: Harris is averaging just 13.5 points and 5.5 rebounds over the last four games. With Joel Embiid and James Harden leading the offense, and increased contributions from Tyrese Maxey, Harris has become the fourth option many nights.

Category: Game Recaps


Tyrese Maxey recorded 22 points (7-11 FG, 4-5 3PT, 4-5 FT), three rebounds, four assists, two steals, and one block in 37 minutes in Thursday's loss to the Raptors.

Fantasy Impact: Maxey has the explosiveness and shooting ability to help carry the 76ers offense on any given night. The Kentucky product is shooting an excellent 43.5% from downtown on the season which has been a major improvement compared to 30.1% in his rookie season. The 21-year-old will look to stay productive when the 76ers host the Pacers on Saturday.

Shake Milton delivered 20 points (9-18 FG, 1-4 3PT, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, and a block in the win over Miami.

Fantasy Impact: Milton played huge minutes off the bench in this one with Harden sidelined and delivered a big-time performance. He has been a solid bench asset all year for Philly, but he will be tough to trust in fantasy if Harden is back.

DeAndre Jordan (trade) will be unavailable for Friday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers. (Source: Gina Mizell on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jordan, who was just picked up by the 76ers, will not be available to make his debut on Friday. He is expected to be with the team for Saturday's game against the Miami Heat, but it isn't clear if he will suit up or not. Fantasy managers should pay attention to how the veteran center is utilized when he is available to play.

With the expected signing of DeAndre Jordan, Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Philadelphia 76ers will be releasing Willie Cauley-Stein (Source: Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 7 year vet hadn’t made much of an impact in his short time in Philadelphia, averaging 1 rebound and 3 minutes in 2 games while failing to score. He likely won’t be a very valuable fantasy asset moving forward, but his landing spot could be worth monitoring.

Fantasy Impact: Well, there it is! After weeks of these rumors going back-and-forth, Brooklyn and Philadelphia finally came to an agreement on a trade swapping Simmons and Harden. It was clear both of them wanted a change-of-scenery. The 76ers were also able to keep Tyrese Maxey and Matisse Thybulle, but Curry should help the Nets shooting while they get bigger with the addition of Drummond.
