Philadelphia 76ers

Fantasy Impact: Embiid has missed the past four games for Philly, but his quick turnaround following surgery is certainly a positive development. There's no timeline on his return, but all signs point to a speedy recovery.

Al Horford managed 14 points (4-14 FG, 2-9 3PT, 4-4 FT) eight rebounds, six assists, two steals and one block across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 117-106 win over the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: With Joel Embiid sidelined, Horford has scored double figures in five consecutive games, and has taken a larger role in the 76ers offense. He is averaging 14.0 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.2 assists, 1.2 steals, 1.2 blocks and 1.6 triples in his last five contests. Horford continues to fill the stat sheet on a nightly basis and has become a must-start fantasy option. The 76ers next scheduled game is Friday, home against the Bulls.

Furkan Korkmaz totaled 15 points (5-13 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-5 FT) and two rebounds in 21 minutes in Wednesday's 117-106 win over the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Korkmaz scored double figures for the first time since December 25th. He mainly contributes in threes, and is worth a deep-league flyer. Korkmaz is averaging 8.1 points, 2.2 rebounds, 0.8 assists and 1.6 triples across 41 games this year. The 76ers next scheduled game is Friday, home against the Bulls.

Matisse Thybulle registered five points (2-4 FG, 1-3 3PT), four blocks, three rebounds, two steals and one assist across 27 minutes in Wednesday's 117-106 win over the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Thybulle swatted a career-high four shots in Wednesday's win over the Nets. With Joel Embiid out two weeks, Thybulle will continue to start and log around 20-plus minutes. If you need help with defensive categories, Thybulle can be used as a streamer. The 76ers next scheduled game is Friday, home against the Bulls.

Ben Simmons produced 20 points (9-13 FG, 2-7 FT), 11 assists, six rebounds, one steal and one block across 41 minutes in Wednesday's 117-106 win over the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Simmons recorded his 22nd double-double of the season, logging one in 10 of his last 12 games. He continues to fill the stat sheet, and contributes in all categories with the exception of threes. Simmons is averaging 15.3 points, 7.6 rebounds, 8.4 assists, 2.1 steals and 0.7 blocks across 40 games this year. He will look to continue his strong play in Friday's tilt against the Bulls.

Tobias Harris amassed 34 points (14-20 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 10 rebounds, three assists and one steal across 35 minutes in Wednesday's 117-106 win over the Nets.

Fantasy Impact: Harris has now reached the 30-point plateau for the fourth time this season. He has recorded a double-double in three consecutive games, and now has a larger role in the offense with Joel Embiid sidelined two weeks. Harris will look to continue his double-double streak in Friday's tilt against the Bulls.

Josh Richardson went for 23 points (8-19 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 6-7 FT), four rebounds and three assists over 36 minutes in the 76ers’ 101-95 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: It was another strong offensive showing for Richardson, as he provided at least 20 points for the third time in the last four games. With Joel Embiid out of the lineup for the last three games, J-Rich has taken advantage of the extra opportunities, averaging 22.7 points, 3.3 assists and 3.0 boards in that span. He's a guy who goes through hot streaks, and it's best to ride it out or try to flip him while at peak value.

Category: Game Recaps


Mike Scott furnished five points (1-6 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and an assist over 18 minutes in the 76ers’ 101-95 loss to the Pacers on Monday.

Fantasy Impact: Scott drew his third straight start with Joel Embiid still on the shelf, though he logged only 18 minutes and failed to make much of an impact. Despite the increased opportunities, he hasn't been a fantasy-relevant player, sporting averages of 7.0 points and 4.7 boards across 22.3 minutes in his brief run with the starting five. He can be left on waivers.

Trey Burke scored 11 points (5-7 FG, 0-1 3PT, 1-2 FT), had three rebounds, and three assists in 16 minutes of action during Friday night’s 118-108 road loss to the Rockets.

Fantasy Impact: Burke played well in limited bench action for the Sixers. But unless you are in a super-deep league, Burke shouldn’t be rostered at this point, as his usage is low and isn’t on the fantasy radar.

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.

Fantasy Impact: 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.

Zhaire Smith will miss Tuesday's matchup with Denver while dealing with a right leg laceration. (Source: NBA Injury Report)

Fantasy Impact: He sustained the injury while playing for the Sixers' G League affiliate Delaware Blue Coats last week and will not be available Tuesday. The second-year man has been back-and-forth between Philly and Delaware and has yet to make his NBA season debut in 2019.

Raul Neto finished with 11 points and a rebound over 12 minutes in the Sixers’ 119-113 loss to the Wizards on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: 11 points in 12 minutes was the most impressive scoring display from Neto that we’ve seen this season, and it’s not likely he’ll surpass it. In a night where the scoring was dominated by the starters, Neto had more than half of the bench points. Usually, however, he’s the third or fourth scoring option out of the Sixers’ backups.

James Ennis produced two points, two assists and a block across 17 minutes in the Sixers’ 119-113 loss to the Wizards on Thursday night.

Fantasy Impact: Ennis collected his only points from the free throw line and didn’t attempt any other shots. His hustle is particularly noteworthy, but it often doesn’t manifest itself in fantasy relevance.

Fantasy Impact: Milton is off the fantasy radar at this point in the season.
