• Joel Embiid
    C, Philadelphia Sixers

    Joel Embiid's absence is likely to extend past the team's upcoming two-game road trip though the Sixers are still determining the full extent of his injury.

    Embiid is dealing with a facial contusion after colliding with Markelle Fultz. He's been released from the hospital but still has to undergo more tests. Richaun Holmes is looking like a must-add for now after seeing 15 minutes when Embiid left the game. Hopefully the Sixers don't get cute and shuffle the minutes around to Amir Johnson and Ersan Ilyasova, though they've done similar in the past. Holmes, assuming he gets minutes in the twenties, has a real shot to put up top-60 value and could turn a ton of tides in the home stretch of the fantasy season.
