James Ennis III

  • Josh Richardson
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Josh Richardson ran into a screen on Friday and injured his left elbow.

    The collision looked bad but Richardson was able to return to the game on Friday. He has played 36 minutes per game over his past six games, so there will be plenty of minutes to go around if he misses time. Matisse Thybulle has seen extra run with Joel Embiid out and could see increased value if Richardson misses time. Furkan Korkmaz, James Ennis and Mike Scott could also be streaming options for points and threes.

  • Matisse Thybulle

    Matisse Thybulle (right knee sprain) will play on Thursday.

    Thybulle has missed a couple of weeks but is ready to return. He doesn't carry a ton of value, but can contribute in the steals department. He also averaged 1.6 made threes and hit 54.5 percent of 3-point attempts in the month of December. James Ennis should see a reduced role going forward.

    James Ennis (stomach illness) has been ruled out of Friday's matchup vs. the Rockets.

    He missed Thursday's practice and was already doubtful heading into this one so this shouldn't come as a big surprise. The Sixers recalled Zhaire Smith from their G-League affiliate on Thursday and he might get some playing time for the first time this season.

    James Ennis is doubtful ahead of Friday's tilt vs. the Rockets as he deals with a stomach illness.

    Ennis missed practice on Thursday so it doesn't come as a surprise that his chances of playing on Friday are in jeopardy. The Sixers might play Zhaire Smith for the first time this season as he was just recalled from their G League affiliate earlier in the day. Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton could also see an increase in playing time.

    James Ennis (illness) did not participate in Thursday's practice, and his status is uncertain ahead of Friday's game with the Rockets.

    If Ennis can't go on Friday, it would open up a few minutes on the wing for players like Furkan Korkmaz and Shake Milton.

    James Ennis III was productive in 20 minutes off the bench on Saturday, posting 11 points on 5-of-8 shooting with one 3-pointer, two rebounds, one assist, one trey, one steal and one block.

    Ennis III has not been pinging on fantasy radars recently and is too erratic to trust in season-long leagues.

  • Tobias Harris
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Tobias Harris (right hip soreness) is being listed as questionable to play against the Heat on Saturday.

    Harris has not missed a game all season so far while putting up top-50 standard league value. If he does need to miss this one, James Ennis and Furkan Korkmaz may be asked to step up, while Trey Burke may also see some more minutes with Ben Simmons playing some forward.

  • Matisse Thybulle
    SG-SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    Matisse Thybulle (right knee sprain, bone bruise) will be re-evaluated in two weeks.

    He's currently thought to be out indefinitely which is very bad for fantasy owners. He had carved out a sizable role in the 76ers rotation and was providing owners with triples and defensive stats. He's worth holding onto for now but in his absence Furkan Korkmaz and James Ennis will see an uptick in production.

  • Furkan Korkmaz
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    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.

  • James Ennis III
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    James Ennis III was a sight for sore eyes on Friday as he came out of nowhere to produce a season-high 20 points on 4-of-5 shooting from the field and 9-of-9 from the stripe.

    Ennis also hit three 3-pointers, grabbed four rebounds, dished out two assists and blocked one shot in this one. He's been off the fantasy radar prior to this and you can consider this an outlier-performance.

    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    James Ennis scored 13 points (5-for-6 shooting) to go along with three rebounds, three triples and an assist as the Sixers beat the Spurs.

    Ennis posted a rare productive fantasy line on Friday in only 15 mintues. This was likely just a case of hotter-than-usual shooting from Ennis and he can be left on wires in most formats.

  • James Ennis III
    SF, Philadelphia Sixers

    James Ennis came off the bench for eight points, 11 rebounds and a block on Wednesday night.

    With Joel Embiid likely looking at a suspension, Ennis could see more minutes over the next few games with Philly simply sliding Al Horford down from power forward to center. This was his first double-digit rebounding game in over two years, however, so maybe don't get used to this. Kyle O'Quinn is in line for more minutes, theoretically, but only got five tonight.

  • Zhaire Smith
    SG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Zhaire Smith was sent down to the Sixers' G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats, on Wednesday.

    Smith has not been able to crack the rotation so far this season after some speculation that he could be a primary back-up at the guard position. He may still have a shot at getting some minutes in the rotation if Matisse Thybulle, James Ennis and Furkan Korkmaz have bad performances or get injured. For now, he can be ignored in fantasy leagues outside of deep dynasty leagues.

    James Ennis (strained right calf) has been upgraded as available for Friday's preseason finale.

    Ennis is looking like one of the first players off the bench for Philly this season, and he should land in the top-250 neighborhood as someone who can chip in rebounds, threes and the occasional steal.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (back) and James Ennis (calf) are questionable to face the Wizards in Friday's preseason finale.

    The Sixers are exercising caution with both Simmons and Ennis. They should both be healthy for opening night and should be drafted accordingly.
