February 22, 2020, 12:26 pmBen SimmonsPG, Philadelphia Sixers
Ben Simmons (back tightness) will be available for Saturday's game against the Bucks.
Simmons missed Thursday's game and Sixers gave starts to both Glenn Robinson III and Raul Neto. With Simmons back and Al Horford now officially with the second unit, it is unclear whether it will be Robinson or Neto who will stick with the starters of the Sixers go back to Furkan Korkmaz. In any case, coach Brett Brown said he does not want to commit to a single starting unit. If even if Korkmaz, Robinson or Neto can win the final starting position outright, it is unlikely any of them can carve out standard league value with the scoring and depth the Sixers possess.

Furkan Korkmaz started on Tuesday, sending Al Horford to the bench, but was not able to capitalize as he missed all five attempts from the field for zero points, one rebound and one steal in 23 minutes.
Korkmaz was such a huge disappointment as a starter tonight, Glenn Robinson III started the second half in his stead. GR3 finished wiht ix points, one rebound, one assist and one block in only 12 minutes. Stay tuned as Korkmaz may just lose out more minutes to GR3 moving forward.

Glenn Robinson III logged 12 minutes on Sunday, chipping in 10 points and a rebound on 5-of-6 shooting.
Robinson is a top-120 guy on the season because the Warriors had nobody else to play confidently on the wings, but that's not the case in Philadelphia. He can safely be dropped in most leagues.
February 9, 2020, 3:45 pmAlec BurksSG, Philadelphia Sixers
Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are available to make their Sixers' debut on Sunday versus the Bulls.
Burks figures to offer more value coming off of the bench to add a scoring punch, but it's going to take an injury for either to have standard league value going forward.

Furkan Korkmaz hit two triples in 28 minutes of action on Thursday night, scoring 12 points on 4-of-12 shooting as the Bucks pulled away from the Sixers 112-101.
Korkmaz has had some intrigue as a 3-point specialist in very deep leagues due to the absence of Josh Richardson. Shake Milton has gotten some run as well and has been an interesting option, scoring eight points to go with four rebounds and three assists in 24 minutes in this game. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the Sixers' role players not only when Richardson returns, but also when they incorporate newly acquired Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks into the rotation.

The Sixers waived Trey Burke on Thursday.
The Sixers acquired Glen Robinson III and Alec Burks yesterday and had to create two roster spots in order to make room for them. They were able to trade James Ennis III but were forced to waive Burke after being unable to find a trade partner. Burke is not on the fantasy radar but could find himself on another team before the end of the season.

Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks have been traded to the Sixers on Wednesday for three second-round picks, according to Shams Charania from the Athletic.
GR3 will see a drastically reduced role on a more heavily stacked Sixers roster, which is a shame considering he's been playing the best season of his career. He will be there for some depth, but will not be featured prominently on offense.

Eric Paschall started on Wednesday and scored 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting with five rebounds, one steal and one block in 33 minutes.
Paschall double-doubled with 14 points and 10 boards on Monday and got the start tonight with Glenn Robinson III and Alec Burks sitting out amidst trade rumors. Paschall started at small forward next to Draymond Green and Marquese Chriss, so he is worth watching as the trade deadline unfolds. Wait for one more game like this before picking him up in standard leagues though.
February 5, 2020, 7:08 pmAlec BurksSG, Golden State Warriors
According to Marc Stein of the NY Times, Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III will sit out of Wednesday's game vs. the Nets in anticipation that one or both get traded before Thursday's trade deadline.
The Warriors have been established sellers this season as they currently have the worst record in the NBA at 12-39. Continue to monitor the trades that occur over the next day as certain players will lose value while others will gain value depending on where they end up. Both Burks and Robinson will likely see their values diminish if they get moved to a contender as they will have less opportunity.

Glenn Robinson III scored 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting with six boards, seven dimes, a steal and two triples.
Robinson along with Alec Burks are both names that are constantly tossed in trade rumors and if they're moved, their value almost certainly goes down. Robinson has been a great story for the Warriors as he went from in and out of the G-league to scoring in double figures in eight consecutive games and counting.
February 3, 2020, 12:44 amAlec BurksSG, Golden State Warriors
Marc Stein is echoing earlier reports from The Athletic in that Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson III are expected to be moved by the trade deadline.
Both players have been minute-munchers for a hollowed-out Warriors squad but a trade is the obvious move here. The team will probably take whatever they can get, and a move would basically erase what standard-league appeal that Burks and Robinson had as quasi-leaders on this terrible team. Deep-league GMs will be racing to see which of the remaining Warriors wings — Damion Lee, Ky Bowman, Jacob Evans, et al — will get the biggest boost.

Glenn Robinson III put up a team-high 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting on Saturday to pace the Warriors to a win over the Cavs, chipping in one rebound, three 3s, one assist, three steals and one block in 26 minutes.
GR3 may have gotten a showcase-game from the Dubs, who are reportedly open to parting with him. He's a sell-high guy as he won't be this much of an impact-player in fantasy on another team.
January 31, 2020, 11:45 amAlec BurksSG, Golden State Warriors
Anthony Slater of The Athletic names Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson as the two candidates most likely to be traded from the Warriors.
Burks has been bandied about as a trade candidate pretty much since the season began and Robinson has been able to salvage his career with a solid season for the Warriors. That said, the market for 6th (but ideally 7th) man scorers has dried up after the Jordan Clarkson trade, and Derrick Rose still figures to be a more attractive target for teams seeking to fill that role. It is still somewhat likely that one or both of these players gets traded for a 2nd round pick, though they stand to lose a lot of fantasy value if that were the case. For what it's worth, the piece also mentions D'Angelo Russell as coveted target of the Timberwolves, as has been widely reported, but it still doesn't make sense for the Warriors to move on from their prized free agent acquisition after only half of a lost season.

D'Angelo Russell scored a game-high 28 points on 10-of-22 shooting with five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and six 3-pointers in a 104-115 road loss to the Sixers on Tuesday.
Some fantasy analysts have been advising to trade Russell away given the uncertainty of the Warriors season. But if you can afford to take a risk, you may want to be on the receiving end of those trades for Russell, a top-30/50 player (8-cat/9-cat) over the last month. Glenn Robinson III also had a big game with 20 points, five rebounds, three assists, one steal and three triples in 33 minutes.

Glenn Robinson III finished Friday's loss with 18 points (7-for-10 shooting), seven rebounds, two triples, an assist and a block in 37 minutes.
The 37 minutes were the most by any Warrior, as Robinson has been a top-100 producer when healthy this season. Continue to have him in your lineups down the stretch for Golden State.
