Jerami Grant and Hollis Thompson both got big minutes on Sunday against the Heat with Nerlens Noel (knee) and Jahlil Okafor (shin) out.
They both logged 37 minutes and they’ll both take a hit when Noel and Okafor return as soon as the Sixers’ next game on Wednesday against the Rockets. Grant scored six points with eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks, and Thompson hit four threes en route to 16 points and four boards. Neither of them made a case for 12-team ownership but they should remain on the radar in 14-16 team leagues down the stretch, with Grant having some standalone value in that regard. Carl Landry had a season-high 18 points with seven boards and one steal, but he might have to stretch for a week before he can walk up and down the stairs again after tonight’s 26 minutes.
