    Joel Embiid will have surgery on Friday to address a torn ligament in his left hand and will be re-evaluated in 1-2 weeks.

    This is unfortunate news for the All-Star and it also illustrates his toughness for being able to play through the injury on Tuesday. Al Horford, Kyle O'Quinn and Mike Scott could all see their values increase for as long as Embiid remains out.

    Joel Embiid (fractured left ring finger) will miss Thursday's game.

    Al Horford and Kyle O'Quinn should see a boost in value for the short term. Meanwhile, Embiid will be seeing a specialist to determine his next steps. Embiid is one of the very best players in fantasy and the Sixers are rightly being cautious with this injury.

    Kyle O'Quinn, who has been dealing with an illness is not on the Sixers' injury report for Friday.

    Joel Embiid is healthy and available as well as Al Horford, so O'Quinn may see limited minutes if any during the game.

    Kyle O'Quinn (illness) was a partial participant in Thursday's practice.

    O'Quinn got the start against the Pacers in place of Joel Embiid on Tuesday and had four points, 10 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 26 minutes of action. With Embiid returning to a full practice on Thursday, O'Quinn can be left on the waiver wire.

    Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

    It sounds like Embiid will be good to go when the Sixers take on the Rockets on Friday. Be sure to check back in for an official status update before tipoff. Kyle O'Quinn would lose his short-lived value if Embiid can return.

    Kyle O'Quinn will start in place of Joel Embiid (knee) in Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

    O'Quinn was the expected choice given the size of the Pacers' frontcourt. He should theoretically be looking at a healthy dose of minutes, but keep in mind that he has only topped 20 minutes once this season and Mike Scott is going to see extra time as well. Both are worthy of consideration for anyone looking for a DFS punt play.

    Joel Embiid is being listed as doubtful with an upper respiratory illness for Sunday's matchup with the Nets.

    Embiid had been rolling after playing really well in both games of a back-to-back set, so this obviously very disappointing for his owners. Al Horford (knee & hamstring soreness) is still listed as questionable for this one as well, putting the Sixers at risk of being incredibly thin in the middle. If neither are able to suit up, Kyle O'Quinn could be looking at a ton of minutes.

    Kyle O'Quinn double-doubled in 27 minutes on Saturday with 10 points (5-of-10 from the field), 11 boards and four blocks.

    The Sixers were without Joel Embiid (right hip contusion) and blew out the Cavs 141-94. O'Quinn can be left on the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues.

    Kyle O'Quinn (left calf strain) is questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Pacers.

    O'Quinn has missed the last three games but doesn't play enough to ping on the fantasy radar, even when healthy.

    Kyle O'Quinn (left calf strain) will miss Friday's game against the Knicks.

    Al Horford is resting so O'Quinn will miss a great opportunity to see the floor. He's been out since Monday and the Sixers haven't said anything about a timetable for return.

    Kyle O'Quinn (left calf strain) and Shake Milton (illness) are being listed as out for Wednesday's matchup with the Kings.

    O'Quinn and Milton carry very little fantasy value when the Sixers are at full strength and can be left on waiver wires.

    The Sixers will be without Kyle O'Quinn (left calf strain) on Monday.

    O'Quinn was unlikely to see the floor much anyway since Joel Embiid is healthy and shimmying. He's a great insurance policy for Philly but his fantasy appeal is entirely dependent on the team's injuries.

    Kyle O'Quinn (left calf strain) is being considered questionable for Monday's game versus the Raptors.

    O'Quinn picked up the injury during the fourth quarter of last night's game versus the Heat. Jonah Bolden may see a few extra minutes if O'Quinn sits out.

    Joel Embiid will miss Wednesday's game against the Magic due to left knee soreness.

    It sounds like this is a load management situation for Embiid. He should be back shortly, but in the meantime Mike Scott and Kyle O'Quinn are likely to see more time on the court.

    Joel Embiid and Karl Anthony-Towns were both suspended two games for the incident that occurred during Wednesday's game.

    Embiid has had a great start to the season and there is no worry that this won't continue after he serves his suspension. Mike Scott, Kyle O'Quinn and Jonah Bolden may see an increased role while the team will likely lean on the other four starters to help carry the load during Embiid's absence. Scott in particular is an interesting DFS play as a low-priced option. Continue to monitor the situation to see who they start as they may shift Al Horford to center and insert Scott off the bench to start at power forward.
