    Matisse Thybulle started again on Wednesday and racked up the defensive stats with two steals and four blocks, adding five points, three rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer for the night.

    Thybulle did his thing again and yes we're teased. He's worth picking up as a streamer in standard leagues and should be a short-term hold in deeper ones while he's starting and this productive.

    Matisse Thybulle will get his fourth start of the season on Wednesday against the Nets.

    Thybulle has a clearer path to more minutes as of late with the injury to Joel Embiid. He is someone to monitor on waiver wires in standard leagues as he might become a streamable asset if he continues to start in Embiid's absence.

    Matisse Thybulle came off the bench for 28 minutes but didn't do much with them, going for six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer on Monday vs. the Pacers.

    Thybulle was alright in this one, but those that roster him need more defensive stats if he's going to get big minutes. He shot just 2-of-8 from the floor and split a pair at the line. Thybulle still has a great chance to be a fantasy darling in the future, but his role is too inconsistent as a rookie on a contender to trust him this season.

    Matisse Thybulle put up a dud in his return from a right knee sprain on Thursday, going scoreless and adding just five rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes.

    Thybulle could have been an intriguing daily play on a light slate but he offered nothing in this game. He'll look to bounce back in the next one and pitch in some 3-pointers and steals.

    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.

    Matisse Thybulle (right knee sprain) went through a full practice on Tuesday.

    Thybulle was hit with a 2-4 week timeline precisely two weeks ago, so it looks as though he will hit the front end of that timeline. Thybulle was playing much better before going down with averages of 7.0 points, 1.5 steals, 0.8 blocks and 1.8 threes in 22.1 minutes over his last eight games. He's a player to keep an eye on if you need a 3-and-D fantasy player.

    Matisse Thybulle (right knee sprain) is expected to miss 2-to-4 weeks but there's optimism that he'll be able to return at the front of that timeline.

    Thybulle is going to be tough to hang onto in 12-team leagues considering his up-and-down playing time, but his defensive upside makes him a fantastic stash if you can afford to wait a couple weeks or more. Furkan Korkmaz and James Ennis are likely to pick up the slack.

    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.

  • Josh Richardson

    Josh Richardson looked ramped up to full speed in Philadelphia's 104-108 loss to Miami, finishing with 17 points (6-of-17 shooting), five rebounds, six assists, three triples and a block in 37 minutes.

    The 17 shots to get 17 points obviously isn't great, but the real news of this one is that Richardson was able to ramp up to a full starter's load in his fifth game back from his six-game absence. He hurt his wrist in his last game against the Celtics, so that could have led to this wonky shooting line, so hopefully that heals up for him soon. This work load relegated Matisse Thybulle (five points, three steals, one block) to just seeing 14 minutes off the bench, seriously dampening the hopes of those who thought he could get up to a mid-20 minute role consistantly.

    Matisse Thybulle (illness) is not being listed on the injury report ahead of Wednesday's game against the Heat after leaving Sunday's game early.

    Thybulle has been inconsistent this season as a defensive ace, but he has seen his mpg jump to 25.0 over the past week. Thybulle is worth keeping an eye on for the potential difference-making defensive numbers if he can learn to be consistent.

    Matisse Thybulle (illness) exited in the third quarter of Sunday's matchup with the Nets and will not return.

    Thybulle was not doing much in this game before his departure as he went for zero points, zero rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 19 minutes of action. It is hard to know if this lackluster performance was due to the upset stomach or just poor play, as Thybulle is one of the most inconsistent options in fantasy hoops.

    Al Horford (knee soreness, hamstring tightness) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Brooklyn Nets.

    It would be Horford's third straight missed game if he is unable to suit up. Mike Scott should continue to start in is absence while Matisse Thybulle could also see more minutes in smaller lineups.

    Matisse Thybulle's improvement as a 3-and-D wing has helped him regain a role in the Sixers' rotation and the team is counting on him to keep it.

    Thybulle is shooting 58% from three in December and his minutes have crept up to 25 per game in the last two weeks, during which he's been a top-80 player. Naturally, the hot shooting from deep will stabilize and he'll have bad stretches on defense, where he's being given the freedom to gamble, often leading to foul trouble. That said, Thybulle only needs 25 minutes to hit value and Keith Pompey of the Inquirer notes that the team is 15-1 in games where he meets that minute mark. There are few free agent options in fantasy leagues with easier paths to top 100 value and Thybulle has already played his way into and end-of-bench spot in fantasy squads with his recent output.

    Matisse Thybulle came off the bench for 13 points (5-of-8 FGs), five rebounds, one assist, one steal and three triples in a win over the Nuggets on Tuesday.

    Thybulle ended up with some extra run because Josh Richardson didn't get his full complement of minutes in this one. Although Thybulle didn't get his patented defensive stats, it's great to see him getting more comfortable on offense. He will still likely have a hard time putting up consistent standard-league value on such a talented team.

    Josh Richardson (right hamstring strain) will return to the lineup for Tuesday’s game against the Nuggets.

    With Richardson likely returning to the starting SG spot, Furkan Korkmaz and Matisse Thybulle will see their playing time dip. Thybulle is coming off a career-high 20 points and it will be interesting to see if he can keep it going with Richardson back in the fold.
