Philadelphia 76ers

Eastern Atlantic

Georges Niang totaled 12 points (4-10 FG, 4-4 FT, 0-5 3PT), grabbed one rebound, and one block in the 76ers' 88-87 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Niang scored 12 points on Wednesday breaking his streak of three-straight single-digit games. He also added in one rebound, and one blocked shot. Hiang is averaging 11.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game. He can safely be left on waivers in redraft leagues.

Shake Milton totaled 16 points (6-11 FG, 2-2 FT, 2-3 3PT), grabbed two rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block in the 76ers' 88-87 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: After a season-low six-point performance on Monday, Milton turned it around, scoring 16 points, including two from beyond the arc. He is now averaging 11.9 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.9 assists per game. Milton sees around 25 minutes per game, and until those numbers increase or he draws a start, he probably won't be consistent enough to earn a roster spot.

Joel Embiid totaled 13 points (3-17 FG, 6-10 FT, 1-3 3PT), grabbed 18 rebounds, six assists, two steals, and three blocks in the 76ers' 88-87 loss to the Celtics on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact: Embiid played 33 minutes on Wednesday, scoring only 13 points, but he did tie a season-high 18 rebounds and added in three blocked shots. He struggled with his shot all night, going just 3-17 from the field and converting six of ten from the charity stripe. Embiid will look to shoot more effectively on Friday when they travel to Atlanta to take on the Hawks.

Danny Green totaled five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3PT), grabbed three rebounds, one assist, and one steal in the 76ers’ 101-96 win over the Magic on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Green got the start and recorded five points in 24 minutes in Monday’s win over the Magic. He is now averaging 7.8 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.7 steals per game. He is worth a look in deeper category leagues if you need help with steals.

Seth Curry totaled 24 points (10-13 FG, 1-1 FT, 3-5 3PT), grabbed two rebounds, one assist, and two steals in the 76ers’ 101-96 win over the Magic on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Curry led the 76ers in offensive production on Monday, totaling 24 points across his 33 minutes. So far, he is having his career-best season, averaging 16.2 points, three rebounds, and 2.4 assists per game. He may regress a tad with the return of Joel Embiid, but it’s no cause for concern right now.

Tyrese Maxey totaled nine points (2-12 FG, 4-4 FT, 1-4 3PT), grabbed eight rebounds, nine assists, and one block in the 76ers’ 101-96 win over the Magic on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Maxey, for the first time since October 26th, failed to score double-digit points on Monday night, finishing with nine. He only shot 2-12 from the field but did convert on all four of his tries from the charity stripe. Maxey did chip in eight rebounds and nine assists to make it a solid category effort. He will remain a solid piece of this offense until clarity is obtained in the Ben Simmons situation.

Matisse Thybulle totaled six points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3PT), grabbed five rebounds, one assist, three steals, and turned the ball over once in the 76ers’ 121-120 loss to the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Thybulle got the start on Saturday, played 29 minutes, and failed to score in double digits for the third time in the last four games. He is now averaging 6.4 points, 2.5 rebounds, 2.4 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game. There is value here in deeper leagues if you need help with steals and blocks.

Tobias Harris totaled 17 points (6-16 FG, 5-7 FT, 0-4 3PT), grabbed nine rebounds, four assists, and two steals in the 76ers’ 121-120 loss to the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Harris returned from a two-game absence on Saturday, logging 45 minutes and dropping 17 points. He was one rebound away from notching a double-double. Harris is averaging 20.3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 4.1 assists on 34.1 minutes per game. As long as he is healthy, he should be in your lineup.

Andre Drummond totaled nine points (3-8 FG, 3-6 FT), grabbed 23 rebounds, three assists, one steal, three blocks, and turned the ball over twice in the 76ers’ 102-94 win over the Kings on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Drummond had struggled in the last three games but got back on track Monday. He grabbed 23 total rebounds and added in nine points and three blocks. Joel Embiid is set to return to the lineup soon, which will send Drummond back to a bench role, so keep an eye out ahead of the 76ers’ game Wednesday to see if Drummond will get one more start.

Furkan Korkmaz totaled five points (2-5 FG, 1-2 3PT), grabbed four rebounds, three assists, one steal, and turned the ball over twice in the 76ers’ 103-89 win over the Nuggets on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Korkmaz came off the bench Thursday, played 22 minutes, and finished with five points. With Curry and Harris healthy, Korkmaz is now firmly back into his bench role, and he has cooled off quite a bit from his hot start to November. He can be safely left on waivers for the time being but should be viewed as a decent fill-in option if some of the 76ers’ guards miss time.

Ben Simmons has met with a team-recommended specialist to discuss mental health concerns, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. (Source: Adrian Wojnarowski on Twitter )

Fantasy Impact: Simmons was reportedly initially reluctant to do so, but he eventually began to do so when the 76ers resumed the fines for missing practices and games. This remains a situation that is unchanged and one to monitor.

The Philadelphia 76ers are planning on waiving point guard George Hill. (Source: Shams Charania on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hil was dealt to the 76ers from Oklahoma City this past season, averaging six points per game on 44.2 percent shooting from the field in just under 20 minutes per game across 16 games played in Philadelphia. He will likely attempt to sign with another contender to provide minutes off the bench.

Philadelphia 76ers PF Mike Scott (hip) has been ruled out Monday vs the Thunder (Source: Noah Levick)

Fantasy Impact: Korkmaz, Ben Simmons (illness), and Tobias Harris (knee) have all been cleared to play Monday. Korkmaz is dealing with a sprained right ankle and missed the previous two games. There was no word on a potential minute limitation for any of the active Sixers. Joel Embiid (shoulder) remains questionable, and the Sixers will be without Danny Green (hip) and Mike Scott (hip).

Dwight Howard totaled 12 points (5-8 FG, 2-3 FT), twelve rebounds, one assist, one block, and two steals in 25 minutes in the Sixers' 132-94 loss to the Bucks on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact: Howard double-doubled in the Sixers' loss to the Bucks with 12.0 rebounds and 12.0 points. When provided time, he has, for the most part, made the most out of his opportunities, and as a result, has established a productive role for himself that allows him to be a consistent contributor to the team's overall effort. However, that doesn't always mean that his contribution pays off in fantasy "gold." Howard is a viable last-piece option for your fantasy lineup when Joel Embiid is out; however, outside of that, he is best suited for small slates and maybe a favorable match-up scenario that could benefit the construction of a stars-and-scrubs lineup.
