• Joel Embiid
    F/C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (back tightness) destroyed the Rockets with 32 points on 9-of-16 shooting from the field and 14-of-17 shooting from the line, adding 14 rebounds, two assists, two steals and three blocks in a blowout win on Monday.

    The Rockets simply did not have enough warm bodies to throw at the Process to slow him down. His explosion is also a good sign that his back issue is likely behind him (no pun intended), so feel free to confidently deploy him in your lineups for the rest of the week with a splash of confidence.
