    James Ennis has a strained right calf and will not play on Tuesday against the Pistons.

    Al Horford will also be rested on Tuesday. Ennis could see his role increase this season but is not especially valuable in fantasy.

    James Ennis should be the first wing off the bench for the Sixers, according to Rich Hofmann of The Athletic.

    Ennis, who averaged 6.7 points in 21 minutes per game last season, will provide depth behind Tobias Harris. His fantasy value isn't terribly high, but head coach Brett Brown trusts his defensive game. This report could mean a slight uptick in playing time for Ennis.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    The Sixers have brought back Furkan Korkmaz on a two-year minimum contract.

    There were rumors that Korkmaz would head overseas after failing to make a positive impact in the postseason for the Sixers. However, at just 21 years old, he will continue to grow with the Sixers. There will be minutes off of the bench to be had if Korkmaz can beat out the likes of Zhaire Smith, Shake Milton and James Ennis.

    The Sixers have officially signed James Ennis and Raul Neto.

    Ennis returns on a two-year, $4.1 million deal but has a player option on the second season. He'll slot into the second unit, where he emerged as a quality role player for Philly last season. Neto should give the Sixers guard depth and can capably fill 10-15 mpg whenever the team needs him. Ennis is closer to fantasy value than Neto, but neither is more than a deep-league target.

    The Sixers are re-signing free agent wing James Ennis on a two-year, $4.1 million deal with a player option for year two.

    Ennis showed well upon arriving in Philly last season and wants another crack at it with his teammates. The Sixers replaced Jimmy Butler with Josh Richardson and Al Horford, so there may be fewer minutes available for Ennis, but there will be a quality role for him as he proved to be a valuable defender at multiple positions last season.

    The Lakers and Clippers have both reached out to James Ennis in free agency, per SNY's Ian Begley.

    Begley also mentions, as he previously reported, that the Knicks continue to show interest. Expect the Lakers and Clippers to snap up as many role players as they can once they figure out where Kawhi Leonard is headed. Ennis didn't fit with Houston but had some nice moments after landing with the Sixers and should give someone some 3-and-D minutes out of the forward slots.

    As per Ian Begley, the Knicks are keeping an eye on James Ennis of the Sixers.

    Ennis, who declined his $1.8 million player option earlier this month, is a potential budget pick for a lot of teams. The Knicks are hoping to sign big-named free agents this summer but will also need to fill out their roster with a balance of role-players. They have their eye on Terry Rozier but have competition from the Hornets as far as landing him is concerned.

    James Ennis, who last month declined his $1.8 million player option with the Sixers for next season, had high praise for the city of Philadelphia and the Sixers organization saying, "I love the fans. I love how they support the team. I like Philly a lot and I would love to come back."

    Ennis was a critical piece of the Sixers rotation down the stretch and in the playoffs. His decision to decline his player option was less to do with a desire to play elsewhere and more to do with the soon-to-be 29-year old looking to get a multi-year contract at a higher average salary. Ennis should have quite a few teams looking to acquire his services after the big free agent dominos fall.

    James Ennis III has declined his $1.8 million player option and is set to be an unrestricted free agent.

    Ennis played a crucial role for the Sixers down the stretch and will likely look to secure a multi-year deal after showing his worth.

    James Ennis III scored 13 points to go with six rebounds, two assists, two threes and a block in 24 minutes on Monday in the Sixers' Game 2 victory.

    Ennis shot 4-for-10 from the field and 3-for-5 from the line tonight. He was more involved tonight and his role is likely to stick with Mike Scott not expected back soon.

    James Ennis III got in for 21 minutes vs. the Raptors in Saturday's Game 1 to put up 11 points, one board, one assist and one 3-pointer.

    The Sixers need every bit of help they can get from their bench unit if they have plans of upsetting the Raptors in the second round. Ennis was the leading scorer off the bench for the Sixers but it obviously wasn't enough against the rampage of the Raptors.

    James Ennis III has been cleared to play more than 12 minutes in Thursday’s matchup against the Nets but coach Brett Brown didn’t specify an exact number of minutes that he would be limited to.

    The Sixers can use all the help they can get off of their bench and Ennis III is a valuable member of that unit. Expect him to play around the 20 minute limit but with no official word from head coach Brown, it will be hard to predict.

    James Ennis III (right quad contusion) got in for 12 minutes vs. the Nets in Monday's Game 2 to put up six points, three rebounds and one assist after barely playing in Game 1.

    The Sixers will take all the useful bench help they can get right now so they don't have to run their four stars into the ground early in the playoffs. Ennis could see more minutes in Thursday's Game 3, as he wasn't needed in the fourth quarter at all in this one.

    James Ennis (right quad contusion) will play on Monday vs. the Nets in Game 2.

    Ennis will try to provide some wing defense and some glue to help the Sixers fend off another 3-point barrage from the Nets tonight.

    James Ennis (right quad contusion) is a game-time decision on Monday and will only be used for about 12 minutes if he's deemed available.

    Shams Charania previously reported that Ennis had been cleared to play, so we expect to see him tonight.
