Al Horford's shooting woes continued on Wednesday, going 3-for-11 from the field for seven points, but was able to chip in elsewhere, adding 10 rebounds, one 3-pointer, seven dimes and two steals in 36 minutes.
Horford has been dealing with a sprained hand, so you can chalk up his poor shooting to that injury. It's a good thing that he's able to do other things well, keeping his value afloat.

Al Horford (left hand sprain) managed to play 26 minutes on Monday, ending with 19 points, six rebounds, two assists, and two blocks.
Horford shook off a rough game on Saturday in this return to form. He has failed to reach double digit points in only two contests during January. Horford is also worth keeping around in fantasy for his defense.

Al Horford (left hand sprain) will be active for Monday's matchup with the Nets.
Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott will remain in smaller roles off the bench with Horford able to play. Feel free to get him back into your lineups.

Al Horford (left hand sprain) is considered to be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Nets.
Continue to monitor the situation closely, as Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott would be looking at heavy minutes if Horford can't go. Norvel Pelle has been ruled out.

Al Horford (left hand sprain) is being listed as questionable for Monday’s game versus the Nets.
Horford injured his non-shooting hand on Saturday but it does not appear to being anything long-term. Norvel Pelle would be expected to see extended run if Horford is unable to play, but Pelle only has one day left on his 45-day contract.

Al Horford put up 20 points on 8-of-14 shooting to go with five rebounds, six assists and two threes in 32 minutes on Friday.
Horford stuffed the stat sheet on Friday and has had at least five rebounds and five assists in each of the five games since Joel Embiid (finger) has been sidelined. Horford is a top-30 player over that stretch, averaging 15.4 points, 7.0 rebounds, 5.6 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.4 blocks. This is vintage Horford but his value will take a hit when Embiid returns. Try and sell-high on Horford after this stretch but make sure you get a top-40 player in return.

Al Horford finished with 16 points, six rebounds, five assists, two steals, one block and three triples on 6-of-16 shooting in 32 minutes.
Horford put up a team-high nine triples and only managed to knocks down a third of them. He's still a top-65 guy over the past week and Embiid's absence should free up more of the paint for him. He's still a locked-in starter.

Al Horford contributed across the board and approached a triple-double on Thursday, with 17 points, eight rebounds, six assists, two 3-pointers and three defensive counters.
Horford doesn't have the glitz and glamour of some of his other Sixers' compatriots, but he is the heartbeat of this team and has been a well-rounded fantasy contributor for close to a decade. He should be rock solid going forward.

Joel Embiid will have surgery on Friday to address a torn ligament in his left hand and will be re-evaluated in 1-2 weeks.
This is unfortunate news for the All-Star and it also illustrates his toughness for being able to play through the injury on Tuesday. Al Horford, Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott could all see their values increase for as long as Embiid remains out.

Joel Embiid (fractured left ring finger) will miss Thursday's game.
Al Horford and Kyle O'Quinn should see a boost in value for the short term. Meanwhile, Embiid will be seeing a specialist to determine his next steps. Embiid is one of the very best players in fantasy and the Sixers are rightly being cautious with this injury.

Al Horford scored 13 points on 6-of-10 shooting to go with four rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Horford shot the ball much better than he has been as of late, but the defensive numbers have yet to roll in. He should get it going eventually on that end of the floor and it's a good sign that he's hitting his shots at a higher rate now. The buy-low opportunity is still there.

Al Horford was uncharacteristically quiet in Saturday's OT loss to the Heat, mustering just seven points on 3-of-6 shooting with four rebounds, one trey and one assist.
Wow. Horford is officially in some kind of mini-slump with him trending down over the last five games. He's still a solid 9-cat play overall, so now would be a good time to buy-low into his stock.

Al Horford scored nine points on 4-of-7 shooting to go with six rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer on Monday.
Another classic Horford line with single digit stats across the board. Don't let that fool you into thinking he isn't productive, as he's still recovering from his knee injury. This was his best game since returning and the arrow is pointing way up for him.

Al Horford's recent lull continued in Friday's loss to the Mavs as he posted nine points, three assists, a steal and a 3-pointer while picking up four fouls in 25 minutes.
Horford is sitting around the top-85 over his last couple of weeks, which makes this a prime buy-low opportunity considering he's about as bankable as it gets in the top-50. The same can be said for Tobias Harris, who is sitting outside the top-100 in that same span and had seven points on 3-of-11 shooting tonight. That can be said for Josh Richardson too, as he is outside the top-200 over the last fortnight and had a modest line with 10 points, six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two threes. Get the discounts while you can.

Al Horford started at center since Joel Embiid (illness) was out and put up 10 points, nine rebounds and five assists in a loss to the Nets on Sunday.
Horford shot 5-of-15 from the field and missed all six of his attempts from beyond the arc. He added one steal and three blocks to the stat sheet. Horford has been the second-best asset on the Sixers, but has led the charge with top-30 value over the past two weeks.
