• Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid (orbital fracture) traveled with the team to Miami for Games 3 and 4, but has not been cleared to play yet.

    The Sixers will practice in the evening so hopefully we get an update then on Embiid's status for Game 3. He also participated in non-contact practice on Tuesday. If he sits again than Ersan Ilyasova would be the main beneficiary and is a fine DFS asset after two straight double-doubles in Games 1 and 2.

Fantasy News

  • Kevin Love
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting to go with seven rebounds in 20 minutes in a 141-94 blowout loss to the Sixers.

    Love struggled in his return on Saturday from an illness that kept him out of Friday's game. Love is putting up top-100 value on the season and is worth holding in standard-leagues. There are reports that the Cavs are listening to offers for Love. If he is traded it may reduce the risk of him being shut down late in the season, but his value could take a slight hit.

  • Darius Garland
    PG, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Darius Garland struggled to get 17 points on 7-of-20 shooting to go with five rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers on Saturday.

    Garland struggled from the floor but at least added some peripherals. Garland is inconsistent and is a big drain on field goal percentage, shooting 38 percent on the season. He is not worth rostering in standard-leagues and is only a guy to monitor in case he improves throughout his rookie season.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons put up a career-high 34 points on Saturday, adding seven assists, two steals and two blocks in just 26 minutes.

    Simmons dominated the Cavs and shot 12-of-14 from the floor including one 3-pointer. Simmons is great in a many areas, but he is held back by his free throw percentage, no threes and high turnovers.

  • Kyle O'Quinn
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Kyle O'Quinn double-doubled in 27 minutes on Saturday with 10 points (5-of-10 from the field), 11 boards and four blocks.

    The Sixers were without Joel Embiid (right hip contusion) and blew out the Cavs 141-94. O'Quinn can be left on the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues.

  • Trey Burke
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Trey Burke nearly double-doubled on Saturday, dishing out eight assists to go with four steals and 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting in 27 minutes.

    There was a lot of garbage time for Burke tonight as the Sixers demolished the Cavs. Burke can be left on the waiver wire.

  • Mike Scott
    PF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Mike Scott started on Saturday and scored 21 points on 9-of-12 shooting to go with six rebounds and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes.

    Scott started for Joel Embiid (right hip contusion) and caught fire against the Cavs. Scott can be a streamer for points and threes when the Sixers are injured. Feel free to use Scott on Sunday if Embiid is still out.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle sprained his right ankle and will not return on Saturday vs. the Cavs.

    Thybulle played nine minutes before rolling his ankle. He had just the one assist and one block.

  • Jake Layman
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jake Layman (left toe sprain) has been listed as out on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

    Layman will now miss his eighth straight game. Treveon Graham, Josh Okogie and Keita Bates-Diop will absorb his minutes.

  • Andrew Wiggins
    SF, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Andrew Wiggins (left thumb sprain) has been listed as questionable for Sunday vs. the Wolves.

    Wiggins sat out the last game. If he is able to play, look for him to put up mid-round value for the rest of the season.

  • Jeff Teague
    PG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Jeff Teague (left ankle soreness) is questionable to play on Sunday vs. the Lakers.

    Teague started last game with Andrew Wiggins out and put up a monster line. If Wiggins, who is also questionable, is able to play, then Teague will likely return to his bench role. He should still put up solid late-middle round value given the minutes.
