    James Ennis III (right quad contusion) won't return to Wednesday's contest against the Hawks.

    He immediately went to the locker room after leaving the floor. Jonathon Simmons could see more playing time if Ennis misses any going forward.

    James Ennis scored four points on 1-of-6 shooting to go with eight rebounds, three assists and two blocks on Monday.

    Ennis started in place of Jimmy Butler (back tightness) but he was never really worth owning and shouldn't be on your radar unless you're desperate for defensive counters. There are better options out there.

    James Ennis will start on Monday in place of Jimmy Butler.

    Even with Butler out, Ennis isn't a reliable or attractive pickup. Over the past two weeks he's the 270th-ranked player and deserves to be left on the wire.

    James Ennis (right quad contusion) is officially listed as available vs. the Wolves on Saturday.

    Ennis was previously listed as probable, but now it is confirmed that he's available to play. He hasn't done anything to warrant fantasy owners' attention though so you can leave him be.

    James Ennis III (quad) has officially been ruled out for Thursday's matchup against the Nets.

    Ennis III wasn't expected to take the floor Thursday. This news just confirms that Shake Milton and Zhaire Smith could pick up some extra minutes in his absence.

    Although James Ennis III (quad) is not listed as out, his status is uncertain for Thursday's game against the Nets.

    If Ennis can't go, Shake Milton and the recently returned Zhaire Smith could see extra minutes off the bench. With Mike Scott (lower back tightness) also uncertain, there could be some cheap DFS dart throws with roughly forty minutes up for grabs.

    James Ennis (quad) has been ruled out on Monday vs. the Magic.

    Ennis is the 245th-ranked player over the past two weeks and with Jimmy Butler back he shouldn't be owned in leagues. He's still playing 18.6 minutes per game but the production just won't be there.

    James Ennis started with Jimmy Butler (rest) out on Tuesday and put up 12 points (6-of-7 shooting), seven rebounds, two assists and a block.

    Not bad work for Ennis, who logged 22 minutes. He's been battling with Jonathon Simmons to stay in the rotation but both guys got to play with Butler out tonight. Simmons posted two points and two steals in 18 minutes tonight. Ennis has the higher upside but when Butler's healthy there's not much to see, even in deep leagues.

    James Ennis is expected to draw the start in place of Jimmy Butler who will not play against the Cavs tonight due to rest.

    Brett Brown said that Butler is not the only player who will be taking time off before the playoffs begin. Both Joel Embiid and JJ Redick can be expected to take off a day or two between now and the end of the season in the name of preservation. Ennis has received the bulk of backup wing minutes over Jonathon Simmons in the last week. Since the Sixers acquired them in February, Brown has been evaluating them as only one of the two is expected to be a part of the nine-man rotation that Brown hopes to use for the playoffs. Both Ennis and Simmons don’t offer much upside as long as Butler, Redick and Ben Simmons remain healthy.

    James Ennis III scored four points on 2-of-6 shooting with three boards on Thursday.

    Ennis logged more minutes tonight than the previous three games combined but it might have been due to the matchup. Either way, he's not worth owning with his minimal role on the Sixers. His playing time reduced Jonathon Simmons to a DNP-CD.

    James Ennis III led the Sixers bench on Friday with six points (2-of-3 shooting), three rebounds, two assists, two triples and one steal in 15 minutes.

    This is an Ennis-like line for sure. Low output but efficient and with no turnovers. He's going to fall off from his value during his Rockets days but will provide stream value for 3s and steals in 16-team leagues or deeper.

    James Ennis III will be available to play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    The addition of defensive minded Ennis was a great move for Philly but the depth will prevent Ennis from being usable in anything but the deepest of leagues. He should be on the wire.

    Tobias Harris, Mike Scott and Boban Marjanovic are available to make their Sixers debut on Friday vs. the Nuggets.

    We’re still haven’t received word if James Ennis will be available on Friday, but the big addition, Harris, will. We’re looking forward to seeing how his game holds up next to the other usage monsters in Philly.

    James Ennis may make his Sixers debut but Jonathon Simmons will remain on the sideline for Friday's game against the Nuggets.

    The Sixers bolstered depth at the trade deadline. Both Ennis and Simmons may carve out some rotation roles for this team, but it's hard to see them making fantasy impacts on such a deep team.
