Joel Embiid (back tightness) is listed as questionable on the 76ers’ game notes and J.J. Redick (right hamstring tightness) is listed as doubtful.
Embiid has missed five of the last seven and the 76ers have now lost eight of their last nine. The correlation is obvious as Embiid has looked extremely dominant this year and has been a top-10 player in fantasy on a per-game basis. Although Amir Johnson will likely draw another start, Richaun Holmes is the player to watch here. He hasn’t really had a ‘breakout’ game yet but he is back in the top-100 over the last seven games. J.J. Redick looks like he will miss his second straight which should give Jerryd Bayless another start. Bayless posted 11 points, four steals and one triple in 33 minutes last game and would be a dart throw in daily leagues. T.J. McConnell is the more interesting play here but only got 20 minutes last game.
