• Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid bullied the Pacers on Saturday, scoring 41 points (15-of-23 from the floor) with 21 rebounds and three blocks in 34 minutes.

    Embiid did all he could to get the Sixers the victory but was out-dueled by T.J. Warren's 53 points for the Pacers. Embiid's fantasy stats should benefit from Shake Milton replacing Al Horford in the starting lineup. Although Shake Milton had a rough night (zero points, three assists and five fouls in 19 minutes), Horford coming off the bench will boost Embiid's rebounding numbers and open up more space in the paint for him.
