Joel Embiid sat this game out with a back injury and for now it’s nothing serious. This paved the way for the three-headed monster of forwards for Philly to each play a minimum of 24 minutes a piece. They all put up serviceable lines and they’re all capable players, but when Embiid returns we’ll have a much clearer look at how the rotation will play out. Booker is a great addition for the Sixers in reality, but from a fantasy perspective it causes a lot of confusion. It’s a good sign that Holmes has been playing well and doing so consistently, but it’s still an uphill battle for him to regain standard league value.
