Sixers star center Joel Embiid (back tightness) is questionable for Tuesday’s matchup against the Kings.
This is according to the Sixers game notes, so stay tuned for a more official update soon. If he sits again then Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes will pickup his minutes with Holmes seeing the most run. Embiid missed Monday’s game and Holmes produced 14 points, seven boards, three assists, and a steal in 23 minutes and he has recorded top-85 value over the last six games, albeit with Embiid missing three out of those six. When Embiid plays and Trevor Booker (ankle) is healthy it will be a dog fight for playing time, but as of now Holmes has the upper hand and is worth owning, but not a must hold unless Embiid gets seriously injured.
