• ESPN’s Tim McMahon is reporting that x-rays taken on Joel Embiid‘s right hand came back negative.

    Breathe a sigh of relief for now, though you can never totally ignore an injury update on Embiid. It’s unclear when he hurt his hand but at least he’s dodged a serious injury for now. If he were to miss time, Amir Johnson would step into the starting five while Jahlil Okafor might get back into the rotation. The injured Richaun Holmes makes for a better speculative pickup than either, as he’s slated to return by the end of next week and should hold standard league value regardless of his role. Hopefully this hand injury turns out to be nothing.
