While Embiid is one of the game’s most dynamic young talents and personalities, fantasy owners knew the risks of rolling with him in the early rounds. While he’s actually done a solid job of staying on the floor this season, this nagging stuff is a headache for fantasy purposes. If he were to sit out, Richaun Holmes would get a ton of work and would make for a fantastic play. He’s impressive in even limited minutes and could get the start at his natural five spot. Amir Johnson and Trevor Booker would also get a bump, but Holmes is the clear target.
