Raul Neto has agreed to a one-year deal with the Washington Wizards according to Shams Charania on Twitter. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 28-year old Brazilian put up 5.1 points, 1.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists per game while averaging 12.4 minutes and shooting 45-5-percent from the field for the 76ers last season. He'll have a reserve role in Washington and has no fantasy relevance.

Fantasy Impact: Shayok primarily played for the Sixer G-League affiliate but saw action in 4 games in the 2020 season. He may get a shot with another team in the future though fantasy managers can safely ignore him.

Former Sixers G Alec Burks has agreed to a one-year, $6M deal with the New York Knicks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The 10-year veteran brings a bit of scoring and ball-handling to a young Knicks squad led by RJ Barrett, Mitchell Robinson, Julius Randle, and even rookie Obi Toppin. Burks averaged 16.1 points per game with the Warriors before joining the Sixers mid-way through the 2019-20 season, where he went on to average 12.2 points per game.

According to sources of the Philadelphia Inquirer, The Philadelphia 76ers are waiving C Norvel Pelle. (Source: Keith Pompey on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Pelle is on a non-guaranteed contract and if the Sixers did not waive him before tomorrow, his $1.5M contract would have become guaranteed. With free agency only a day away, the Sixers need as much cap space as possible to continue rebuilding their roster under the new President of Operations, Daryl Morey. Pelle is a serviceable big man but carries limited upside and no fantasy value this season.

Josh Richardson, and the Sixers' No. 36 pick, is going to Dallas and Seth Curry is headed to Philadelphia in the deal, per Adrian Wojnarowski. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Dallas was looking for help with their perimeter defense and Richardson could be the answer. The 6-5 Richardson averaged 13.7 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game last season while shooting 34-percent from three. He could be a fantasy asset next season if he can improve his defensive prowess and continue to shoot from beyond the arc at a decent clip. The Mavericks selected Tyler Bey with the No. 36 pick.

According to sources close to ESPN, Sixers F/C Al Horford has been traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder for F Danny Green in addition to first and second-round picks. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Horford will get a better opportunity in Oklahoma City as he was not a good fit for the Sixers frontcourt alongside All-Star Joel Embiid. He'll likely play the PF position in OKC and rotate with C Steven Adams when he is on the bench. Fantasy managers should consider Al Horford a fringe late-round pick as his role with the Thunder is unclear.

The Philadelphia 76ers and Doc Rivers have reached an agreement for Rivers to become Philadelphia's next head coach. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rivers is undoubtedly an upgrade over Brett Brown, who was ousted quickly after the Sixers first-round loss to the Celtics. Rivers is a good fit for the Sixers as a former point guard in the NBA and won a championship as head coach of the Celtics in 2008. There's no question that Rivers will have his work cut out for him. The Sixers have some substantial contractual hurdles to overcome along with apparent deficiencies in skillsets and chemistry issues, so he'll be busy in his first season at the helm.

Ben Simmons was selected for the 2019-2020 NBA All-Defensive First team. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Simmons led the NBA in steals with 2.1 per contest. As a 6'10" point guard, Simmons has established himself as one of the premier defenders in the NBA with his ability to guard every position from guard to center. Simmons is an exceptional talent, and this could be the start of him being honored annually amongst his peers for his defensive prowess. Before undergoing a season-ending injury, Simmons averaged 16.4 points, 8.0 assists, 7.8 rebounds, 2.1 steals, and 0.6 blocks across 57 games played.

Tobias Harris had a scary fall in the 3rd quarter, but was able to return to the game, scoring 20 points on 7-of-12 shooting to go along with five rebounds, two assists, and one turnover in 35 minutes as the Sixers get swept in four games by the Celtics.

Fantasy Impact: Harris went down hard in the 3rd quarter and laid on the ground for a couple minutes before exiting the game. He was evaluated for a concussion, but was cleared and was determined to have an eye laceration. He received stiches and miraculously came back into the game in the 4th quarter. Harris mostly struggled with his shot in this series, but actually shot the ball well in Game 4, shooting 58 percent from the floor.

The Sixers are inserting rookie G/F Matisse Thybulle into the starting lineup in place of Al Horford on Wednesday. (Source: Davide Chinellato on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: After reports surfaced prior to Game 1 that coach Brett Brown was considering inserting Thybulle into the starting five, it appears he decided to pull the trigger. Thybulle is an excellent defender and will look to help contain the Celtics' young stars in Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown in Game 2.

Sixers forward Glenn Robinson III is expected to miss 7-10 days with an oblique muscle strain. (Source: Kyle Neubeck on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: A hip pointer forced Robinson III to miss six of the Sixers eight seeding games and now he has been diagnosed with a strained oblique muscle. With the 26-year-old set to be reevaluated in 7-10 days, it's a real possibility that he is forced to miss the Sixers first four playoff games against the Boston Celtics. Furkan Korkmaz should see extended playing time in his absence.

Category: Injury Updates

Furkan Korkmaz played 29 minutes off the bench Wednesday, scoring 21 points (5-10 FG, 5-9 3PT, 6-6 FT) with five rebounds, four assists, two steals, and two turnovers.

Fantasy Impact: Korkmaz looked great off the bench Wednesday in a loss to the Raptors. He's now hit eight three-pointers in his last two games and could be playing himself right into the playoff rotation for head coach Brett Brown. The Sixers have one more seeding game Friday against the Rockets, and one could expect Korkmaz to get another opportunity to shine with increased minutes as the starters are likely to sit in that one.

Kyle O'Quinn nearly recorded a triple-double in Tuesday's loss to the Suns, scoring nine points (4-6 FG, 1-1FT) with 10 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, one block, and one turnover in 32 minutes.

Fantasy Impact: O'Quinn got the start and played 32 minutes today after seeing just five minutes in one game thus far since play resumed. The 11 assists were also a career-high for KOQ. The heavy workload came as a result of Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, and Al Horford all sitting on the sidelines, so don't expect similar production going forward from O'Quinn.

Sixers F Mike Scott (knee) is listed as out on the 76ers injury report ahead of Wednesday's contest versus the Wizards. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: Scott's missed each of the first three games of the bubble restart due to soreness in his right knee. His next opportunity to suit up for the Sixers will be Friday against the Orlando Magic.

Shake Milton put up 16 points (6-9 FG, 2-4 3PT, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, and three assists Monday. He drew the start and saw 25 minutes of time on the court.

Fantasy Impact: Milton redeemed himself after going scoreless in Saturday's first game back from the long hiatus. He's established a role in Philly but is too far down the pecking order to warrant serious fantasy consideration in most formats, as long as the 76ers are at full strength.

The Sixers' recent addition Ryan Broekhoff will not be joining the team in Orlando at any point of the NBA restart. Broekhoff's wife has tested positive for COVID-19 and is considered 'high risk'. Broekhoff has decided to stay at home with his family instead of travelling to Orlando. (Source: Kyle Neubeck on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Broekhoff has yet to play a game for the Sixers, as he was signed off waivers at the end of June. Prior to signing with Philadelphia, Broekhoff played in limited minutes for the Dallas Mavericks. Broekhoff was not expected to have a significant role for the Sixers, but his absence gives Philadelphia less depth for their backcourt.

Free agent guard Trey Burke has officially signed with the Dallas Mavericks ahead of the NBA restart. (Source: Bobby Karalla on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Burke will take the place of C Willie Cauley-Stein who has decided to opt out of playing the remainder of the season. The Mavericks will be without Cauley-Stein and Dwight Powell when the season resumes, and head coach Rick Carlisle admittedly said “we’re gonna be a little small [with only 3 guys over 6-foot-7].” Burke last played for the Sixers during the 2019-20 season and will provide the Mavs with playmaking and scoring off the bench.

Sixers G Zhaire Smith has suffered a bone bruise in his left knee and will not accompany the team to the “bubble” at Walt Disney World. (Source: Serena Winters on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Tough break for Smith, who was undoubtedly looking forward to playing in Orlando. He started experiencing pain last week in Philadelphia prior to resuming workouts with the team. He began treatment immediately and is expected to make a full recovery ahead of the 2020-21 season. The former first-round pick in 2018 has only played a grand total of 13 games for Philadelphia since being drafted out of Texas Tech.
