    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game.

    Matisse Thybulle has played some strong games in Richardson's absence. However, he and Furkan Korkmaz will get less playing time when Richardson is back in the fold.

    Furkan Korkmaz started on Thursday, scoring eight points on 3-of-6 shooting to go with a rebound, an assist and two triples.

    Korkmaz played the fewest minutes (20) out of all of the starters, but delivered some triples which is the extent of his fantasy value. The Sixers usually start him whenever they lose one of their starters, but he's just a short-term 3-point specialist.

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) has been ruled out of Thursday's game.

    Richardson last played on November 27. Furkan Korkmaz should stay in the lineup until he's able to return. The Sixers have won four straight but still miss Richardson's scoring ability.

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) was able to go through individualized workouts during Tuesday's practice.

    Richardson is making progress, but it doesn't seem likely that he will play on Thursday if he can't get in a practice before then. Matisse Thybulle and Furkan Korkmaz will continue to see added minutes in Richardson's absence.

    Furkan Korkmaz will start on Monday in place of Josh Richardson.

    Josh Richardson is still out, so Korkmaz will stay in the lineup. Korkmaz is not particularly valuable but can deliver points when he starts.

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) is being listed as doubtful for Monday's game versus the Jazz.

    Furkan Korkmaz should continue to start in place for Richardson for as long as he is out. James Ennis will get a boost of minutes off of the bench, but it's hard to own either player in anything but deep leagues.

    Furkan Korkmaz got the start and scored 12 points, on 4-of-9 shooting, while chipping in three 3's and two steals in Saturday's win over the Pacers.

    With teammate Josh Richardson still out with a hamstring injury, Korkmaz got the start and ended up playing 22 minutes and splitting minutes with James Ennis III, who saw more minutes (27). He scored when needed and provided very little else for any fantasy owner whom streamed him in DFS. He is not worth rostering in most fantasy formats, and will obviously return to the bench when Richardson returns, but can put up points for desperate owners in deep leagues.

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring soreness) has been ruled out of Saturday's game versus the Pacers.

    Not a huge surprise here as Richardson missed the last game and was doubtful coming in. Furkan Korkmaz should see another spot start, while Matisse Thybulle gets a few extra minutes

    Furkan Korkmaz (left ankle sprain) will play on Monday against the Raptors.

    Korkmaz's injury was said to be minor and the Sixers were able to win without him on Saturday. He'll be spacing the floor in a bench role and has limited fantasy appeal with Josh Richardson back in action. The most interesting angle here is how he impacts Matisse Thybulle's minutes.

    Furkan Korkmaz (left ankle sprain) is considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Raptors.

    It would be his second consecutive game missed if he is unable to give it a go. Trey Burke and Matisse Thybulle would be the beneficiaries if Korkmaz sits out.

    Furkan Korkmaz (minor left ankle sprain) will not play against the Heat on Saturday.

    Kormaz started the prior two games filling in for Jason Richardson. He played especially well in Friday's victory with 17 points, four rebounds, four triples and two steals in 34 minutes but with Richardson back in the lineup, Korkmaz should revert back to his 15-25 minute per game role once he returns from his own absence and can be left on the wire in standard leagues.

    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons accumlated 10 points, 13 assists, 10 rebounds, two steals and a block in Friday's win over the Spurs.

    The Sixers were on fire from the field in this one, as Simmons routinely found Furkan Korkmaz (17 points on 6-for-12 shooting, four rebounds, four triples and two steals) and Tobias Harris (26 points on 10-for-16 shooting, six rebounds, four assists, three triples, two blocks and a steal) for open looks.

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    As he is continuing to deal with a right hip flexor, Josh Richardson will miss Friday's matchup vs. the Spurs and is questionable for Saturday vs. the Heat.

    Furkan Korkmaz will have another opportunity with Richardson out on Friday, but he did not do much in the last game as he received 16 minutes. Matisse Thybulle may also see a bump in playing time.

    Josh Richardson (right hip flexor) is being listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs.

    Richardson sat out Wednesday's game with what he described as 'tightness' in his right hip. The Sixers face of the Spurs on Friday in the first game of a back-to-back. Furkan Korkmaz started on Wednesday in Richardson's absence but didn't do much in 16 minutes. Expect another update after tomorrow's shootaround.

    Furkan Korkmaz got the start in Wednesday's 109-104 win over the Knicks but failed to make the most of it, scoring just two points with an assist in 16 minutes.

    Korkmaz had some nice games shooting the 3-ball earlier this month, but as seen tonight, he can't keep himself on the floor when his 3-point shot isn't falling. He's not worth a streaming spot even when he steps into a starting role.
